Opacmare Deck Crane Five Year ABS Testing

Opacmare Deck Crain

Opacmare Deck Crane in the yard for re-certification.

Depending on the Class of your vessel, your cranes require testing and certification each year or every five years.

It involves careful inspection and load testing by an experienced technician who has kept his training and certification up to the standards required to maintain your vessel’s Class certification.

This Opacmare crane on a 130’ yacht came in for ABS class servicing and testing.  The crane used Spectra Line instead of wire. This is not unusual except that due to UV deterioration, any crane that has Spectra Line should consider replacement every 12-18 months.

We replaced the Specta Line, performed load testing of the line and the overall system, re-certified for Class and had him on his way toward another season of safe yachting.

Our technicians have the right certifications to maintain your yacht with the most up to date equipment. Give us a call if you have a question about your crane or simply need new Spectra Line and a re-certification.
