For the FB262 yacht project, Lift Emotion will supply three guest and crew elevators, as well as a dumb waiter. Lift Emotion will design, deliver and install these elevators in such a way, that the shipyard can decorate them, to exactly match the yacht’s custom interior.

Lift Emotion uses their C-line marine elevator, a proven solution that is well known for the rigidity and durability. The hydraulic driven elevators are controlled by special hydraulic pumps and electronically controlled valves that ensure a smooth ride.

The elevators will feature central opening landing doors, that have Solas A0-class certificates to match the demands by class and flag state.

Lift Emotion plans to finish the elevators for the 90m Benetti megayacht FB262 in the first quarter of 2013, and soon after that will start their installation.
