Slipway Winch Hauling Boat Ashore With Accessories

Aicrane offers two primary boat hauling methods, each requiring distinct accessories to lift boats out of the water, and each method boasts its unique features. The boat can be lift with the help of rail trolley or airbags.

Airbag Boat Hauling Method

The utilization of airbags for boat hauling is an efficient solution. The airbag, known for its flexibility and cushioning properties, allows the boat to pitch and roll freely during the landing process, safeguarding the vessel’s structural integrity. This method effectively combines slipway and rail trolley functions, resulting in streamlined equipment, reduced construction costs, and simplified maintenance. Adaptable to diverse vessel types for shore landings, airbag boat hauling offers a contemporary and efficient alternative to traditional methods.
