The RNYC has a full yard service and can lift out pleasure boats up to 50 tons. The Travel Lift can be used for emergency repairs or to place boats for extended storage. Boats with suitable cradles can be shunted around the yard by means of a lifting dolly and a small tractor. These units are used together each fall and spring when the boats are stored for the winter months. During the summer months boats are often lifted for repairs or cleaning prior to race events.
