This hook will optimise the handling of tender boats on board large luxury yachts. Currently this is the only stainless steel hook worldwide that is allowed for man-riding and normal loads and has an integrated hook weight and a DNVGL Type Approval Certificate. Through compact design and the integrated hook weight, valuable headroom height is saved. The high gloss polished stainless steel design gives the hook the perfect look. With suitable and certified cranes and this hook system, manned tenders can be launched.

The integrated hook weight for safe crane operation is more compact than the usual wire weights. Every centimetre that can be saved in height is valuable in the day-to-day handling of tenders, also to enable them to be moved safely inside the boat garages on board the yacht. Further plus points are the ergonomic design and good looks of this hook. And, above all, the type approval for man-riding by DNVGL.These hooks are not only used as load attachment devices for FUCHS cranes, but are also offered separately for the updating and optimisation of crane systems already installed on board luxury yachts. The hook is available in different sizes, currently up to a maximum load of 4,000 kilos. Another version with a maximum load of 8,000 kilos will be available in the second half of this year.
Founded in 1962, FUCHS Fördertechnik AG has quickly expanded into a medium-sized production company for a wide variety of conveyor technology that is currently being led in the second family generation. The increasingly specialised demands especially in shipbuilding led and lead to the development and custom production of highly innovative cranes and crane systems of different types as well as crane trolleys and lighting masts purpose-made for their specific use and the individual customer requirements. This unique know-how in highly specialised crane-building has made FUCHS a market leader and an especially reliable partner for the future. Customers from all parts of the world rely on FUCHS Fördertechnik AG – in shipping as well as in offshore and industrial technologies.
FUCHS Fördertechnik AG is part of the working group Deutsche Yachten – Superyacht Germany. This is made by a number of select German companies that are active in the build and equipping of yachts of more than 30 metres in length. This working group is part of the German Boat and Shipbuilder’s Trade association DBSV (Deutscher Boots- und Schiffbauer-Verband) in which all relevant companies of the German yachting industry are organised. The aim of the group is to promote yacht-building in Germany and inform about the many services and resources that Germany has to offer this industry.
