Custom forklift for Cape Cod yard

The recent delivery of a Marine Travelift M2300H (23,000lb/10,400kg capacity) Hydro M_Drive marine forklift to Ryder’s Cove Boat Yard in Chatham, Massachusetts, now allows the yard to service and store larger vessels.

Ryder’s Cove is a full-service marina and boat dealership located on the elbow of Cape Cod. It provides wet slip and rack storage for around 200 boats and has been under the same ownership for 28 years.
The forklift Ryder’s Cove selected has many custom options, including a 105in (267cm) wheelbase, centre cab with wide view mast, wireless remote for lift functions, and dual-axis joystick controls.
The marina chose the shortest wheelbase available for the M2300H capacity class. This results in the tightest possible turning radius to maximise space and enables the operators to handle longer boats in their current drystack set-up.
The centre cab option offers unmatched visibility through the true wide-view mast. Not only does this put the operator in the centre of the machine but the mast and carriage are strategically designed to ensure the operator has maximum visibility when lifting to any level.
Operators selected dual-axis joystick control, as this was a feature they’d become used to on other machines, but also opted for remote control. The latter can move the carriage up and down, swing each fork independently in and out, swing shift the forks left and right, and simultaneously swing both forks open and closed.
This is the first Marine Travelift machine purchased by Ryder’s Cove and president, Alan Cohen, says the team is thrilled with it. “We’ve owned other forklifts prior to the Marine Travelift, and the M2300 is a well-engineered machine,” he said.
