During the bustling cruise season in New York, World Yacht’s crew faces the repetitive and exhausting task of lifting and lowering the gangway before departure and after docking. Previously, they struggled with a slow manual hoist and an inadequately powered unit that couldn’t withstand the environment or the demands of the job.

After thorough online research, World Yacht reached out to Allied Power Products, Inc. (APPI). APPI recommended one of their standard Columbia hoists, the H2000, which perfectly suited the application. This compact and weather-resistant hoist can operate using the vessel’s onboard generator electrical service. As an added benefit, the hoist seamlessly integrated with World Yacht’s existing gangway service crane.

The Columbia H2000 hoist from APPI offers a reliable and efficient solution for gangway handling, easing the crew’s workload and ensuring smooth passenger transitions. Its durable construction and adaptable design make it an ideal choice for marine environments.
