The ultimate ocean cruising machine gets a lift

The ultimate ocean cruising machine gets a lift

NZ Crane helped the team from Rapido boat builders launch one of its new trimarans in Auckland recently. 

While conditions were not ideal, using a 170 tonne Grove All-Terrain Crane the nine tonne Rapido 60 was lifted and moved at a low height across the wharf to keep it out of the wind before lowering it into the water.  

The Rapido 60 is designed and constructed as a powerful ocean cruising trimaran but with a luxurious and spacious living area.
