Specialist superyacht rigging, inspections and service company Marine Results International Ltd has purchased the intellectual property of Seaway Powell Marine Ltd, following the company’s liquidation in 2016. The acquisition will enable Marine Results to access the blueprints to the high-quality hydraulic systems, large underdeck captive winches, capstans, hydraulic cylinders, traveller systems, and other hydraulic systems that Seaway Powell produced for several decades. This will mean that the company can provide service and support to the superyachts and other vessels which are equipped with these products and systems.
Jon Morris of Marine Results emphasises the importance of the continuity that Marine Results is providing. “There are over 120 captive winches on board yachts under navigation today and we will be endeavouring to make contact with each of them. The winches are intricate pieces of engineering that need to be serviced correctly. We hold the records of each yacht and have very detailed drawings of all the individual component parts of the assemblies.” Seaway Powell capstans are also used by the MOD and RNLI.
The company is now servicing the following Seaway Powell products as well as providing spare parts: Captive winches: CW12, CW14, CW16, CW18, CW1824; Capstans: C3000E, C4000E, C4000H, C9500, C12500, C15000, Hydraulic Cylinders, Travellers, Transom door/Hatch Locks and Runner Foreguy Winches. If your yacht has those products on board and you are looking for servicing options in the run up to the Winter Refit, it may be reassuring to use a company who already has your records.
