For drivers and car owners alike, the concept of parking an automobile in a garage or with a valet in front of a hotel is second nature. It’s a simple concept— pull up to a building, leave your vehicle with the attendants and they store it away until you come back. Imagine a touchless garage system that eliminates door dings, scuffs and damage, rinses your car and places it into its secure spot.
It’s so simple that you may wonder why it hasn’t always been done like this for boaters—until now. With advancements in technology, materials, engineering and design, Technomarine Automated Dry Storage and building system can whisk boats away and store them safely—protected from the sun, elements, fire, theft, damage and mishandling. So, no more teenage valet attendants taking your convertible for a quick spin.
There are three fire protection systems in place inside and outside of the storage building, along with 24/7 security, monitoring, closed circuit TV and intrusion alarm system. And for storms, the building is designed to withstand category 4 hurricanes. Sounds like NASA could use one of these to store their space vehicles in.
Technomarine Automated Dry Storage handling cradle is specifically designed to protect the boat hull from scuffing, premature wear or other risks of accident. The advantage over conventional dry storage methods is that the hull will never come in contact with forks or handling equipment—or for that matter, an overzealous fork operator. Only one machine is used for handling and rinsing with high-pressure fresh water, eliminating the need to move the boat several times.
In a hurry? Now, vessels can be retrieved in less than five minutes—and you don’t have to be 007. Requests for launch or removal of a boat can be accomplished by the owner upon arrival or in advance by phone, e-mail or online through smartphone app. And there’s no tipping the machine.
Not to mention the space-saving efficiency of this new technology. By utilizing the vertical space, the automated dry storage system is able to take advantage of small spaces like never before. It truly is one-of-a-kind technology.
With marinas implementing Technomarine Automated Dry Storage and building systems around the world, you’ll wish and wonder why your automobile couldn’t be treated this well. Here’s to wishful thinking. Home, James.
