Versadock

Apologies if this has been discussed before.

http://www.versadock.com/

But I reckon these look pretty good - I think they were at London Boatshow. Has anyone got one? Would it cope with 8.5m? Does it scratch GRP?

Any comments/opinions would be much appreciated.

They are great in my opinion. I've driven a 6m rib on and off countless times and its very easy. It doesnt scratch your GRP, and of course it saves your hull getting covered in growth. If you can try and get hold of a copy of Anglia Afloat as theres a good review in there this month.

Thats very interesting to hear. My local marina is offering me a deal on a new one but I have never seen them in the flesh. My concern was getting on and off and how easy/hard that would be. For an 8.5 metre rib with O?B they are quoting just shy of 5k fitted. A good 4k less than a comparable hydrohoist.

Apparently some marina's dont like them as they cannot use your bearth when you are away, which is a p!ss take considering you pay for it for a year anyway!!

I think qcamel's about right on pricing.

I've got to put together a proposal for the harbour's office here, as no-one has seen them in Jersey yet.

New Versadock Brochure

Attached is a PDF brochure of the Versadock system! Versadock UK will be showing at SEAWORK 2007 stand No. 70. You will be able to see the Versadock product and some pictures of recent installations.
There will also be a large on the water display, (Berth 57) including a drive on dock, working platform and many new features. This will give you the opportunity to see and experience Versadock in a working marine environment.

Richard I see you have managed to get your old rib in the new Versadock brochure. lol

I recognise the versadock with the ribs and sailing dinghy's on in the first brochure. That is moored at the far end of Pwllheli Marina.

They seem like a great idea.
