The increasing demand and size of personal watercraft (PWC) shows no sign of abating according to Forbes Magazine*.

For owners, operators and crew alike, the safe handling and stowage of PWC creates an additional task for the day-to-day operation of the yacht. Ribs and tenders too can add to the burden, requiring space in the garage or tender bays.


The size, weight and quality of equipment means launching and stowing PWCs is a demanding task, as well as being a potential source of strain related injuries to crew. Without a planned approach to lifting and moving items such as jet skies, the potential for wear-&-tear increases to both the equipment and the garage itself.


Harken trolley and rail systems provide a simple but effective way to easily move & store PWCs, ribs and tenders within the space available, in the garages of superyachts. Deck or ceiling mounted and with load ratings up to 11.12 kN (1134 kg/2500 lb), crew can safely move craft for launching, reducing both the task time and risk of injury.


Easy to retrofit, help is available worldwide to specify and fix trolley and rail systems from Harken’s network of approved dealers and installers.
