Strapped In

Your eyes aren't deceiving you; that's one heckuva yacht sitting in that TraveLift. To be specific, she's the 192-foot Ronin, and she and the TraveLift just made the record books. For not only is Ronin the largest private yacht ever hoisted by a TraveLift, but the 660-ton crane itself is the largest one at an American shipyard, Marine Group Boat Works in San Diego. And get this: The crane is just the second one made in the USA to be able to lift 500 or more tons, constructed in Wisconsin and shipped to Marine Group Boat Works in several pieces—carried on 19 18-wheelers.

Now that's what we call a heavy load.
