MGM Boats lifted Rosslare's Severn and Arklow's Trent Class RNLI Lifeboats for maintenance purposes late in December, just part of the busy lift-in/out schedule kept by its boatyard services at Dun Laoghaire Harbour.

The firm operates the only dedicated boat hoist on Dublin Bay, with the ability to lift craft up to 50–Tons; an essential service at the country's biggest boating centre.

East coast RNLI lifeboats, including those at Howth and Dun Laoghaire, are not the only large vessels to make use of the facility with Dublin Port's new pilot boat, Tolka also hauled out by MGM for maintenance last April.

The lifting and servicing of boats, including fishing trawlers, needs to continue year-round despite COVID-19

MGM Boats offer a wide range of boatyard services including pressure wash, block off and cradle, relaunch as well as boat storage.
