Six years ago Norwegian Cruise Lines needed a way to moor their four cruise ship ferry boats behind their private island Great Stirrup Cay which is part of the Berry Islands in the Bahamas. These boats are used to carry passengers from the ship to their private beaches for a day in the sun and sand. Today, these moorings are still in use as supplemental docking capacity for their new marina.
These 100 ft. long ferries needed a safe, durable system during significant 60 knot weather events that could withstand the heavy tonnage. Boatmoorings.com designed and installed a Helix Mooring System, durable enough to withstand the forces of NCL's fleet during these extreme sea storms. Six years later, after enduring the exertion of storms with winds up to 65 knots, the systems are still holding strong.
Captain Magnus Sjösvärd, Director of out Island Operations and Special Projects for NCL couldn't be more pleased with these Eco-Mooring Systems. He raves about their sturdiness and strength during the most extreme storms, and even after six years they work as well as when they were first installed. As the pioneer of helix mooring systems, this is yet another case where these Eco-Mooring Systems were tested and deemed stronger and more durable than the competition.
