Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers, located in Colonia, Yap, operates a unique floating restaurant housed in a 121-year-old Indonesian Phinisi sailing ship. The restaurant relies on a dumbwaiter system to efficiently transport items between the kitchen in the belly of the ship and the three service floors above.

Numie Acker, the General Manager at Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers, shared their experience working with Allied Power Products, Inc. (APPI):

“Allied Power Company was very accommodating and were willing to assist us in getting their product to us in Yap, FSM. The customer service was outstanding, and they took care of ensuring that we had received our product safely.

We have been pleased with their product as we bought our first hoist from them over 15 years ago and did not have to replace it until last year. The hoist is used for our dumbwaiter system on our floating restaurant which is on an over a century old Indonesian Phinisi ship.”

APPI recommended the Columbia HF2300-1A17-L-02 AC electric hoist for the dumbwaiter application. This hoist offers a load rating of up to 2,300 lbs on the first layer and a line speed of 12.2 fpm, making it well-suited for the demanding environment of the floating restaurant.

The Columbia hoist, powered by a 115 VAC single-phase motor, seamlessly integrated with the restaurant’s existing dumbwaiter system, ensuring smooth and efficient operation. The durability and reliability of the Columbia hoist are evident from the fact that Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers used their first APPI hoist for over 15 years before needing a replacement.
