Syncrolift Cherbourg

Burgess Marine has formally partnered with the Port of Cherbourg in support of the growing refit and repair market developing across the South Coast and the English Channel.

Since 2001, Burgess Marine has been the Port of Cherbourg's primary engineering partner in respect of the Rolls-Royce Syncrolift facility in Cherbourg. The facility (with a lift 90m x 32m) comfortably caters for vessels over 90 metres in length, and offers a 4500 tonnes lift capacity. Having for many years utilised the facility specifically in support of High Speed Craft operated by Sea Containers, Condor Ferries and Brittany Ferries, Burgess Marine now intends to expand its commercial activities on the site in the support of both Superyachts and UK based ship owners and operators. English Channel.

Skilled, experienced personnel that are capable of carrying out planned or emergency structural repairs and renewals, as well as mechanical repairs both above and below the waterline are routinely deployed, at short notice, from Burgess Marine's Dover, Portsmouth or Southampton facilities.

The Syncrolift, the largest and most modern in the region, is ideally located only 75 miles from Southampton and Portsmouth, 70 miles from Portland, and just 135 miles from the busy Dover Straits. The longevity of Burgess Marine's partnership ensures lift rates are highly competitive and response times immediate.
