Various Boat Lifts
We’ve done many different type of boat lifts, from yachts to tugs and barges, we love a challenge! Here’s a photo gallery of our many boat lifts we’ve done in the past.
Heavy Lift North Vancouver Silo Project
Amix Heavy Lift has been onsite in North Vancouver’s Low Level Road to assist in the $120-million expansion to Richardson International’s grain-handling terminal. The photos consist of the lift of cones, conveyor housing and belts all used for the function of the silos.

Nicola ferry has lift off
The Arctic Tuk performs another spectacular precision lift. After an 11-week spell in dry dock at BC Ferries’ Deas Pacific Marine facility in Richmond, the Nicola ferry was successfully hoisted aloft, swung across the barge deck, and lowered into the water. She will resume service for the Lax Kw’alaams First Nation Band by late Fall. Left: what the Nicola looks like in full service. See the video.
Westshore Terminals Coal Stacker/Reclaimer
Amix Heavy Lift completed this offloading project in Spring of 2009. When assembled, the jumbo-sized yellow steel components form a $30m coal stacker-reclaimer which increases Westshore Terminals annual coal handling capacity by millions of tons.
Sunken ferry T’Lagunna gets lifted aboard
Submerged on the shoal off Darrell Bay, the T’Lagunna lay at a sharp angle; her bow 60 ft down and her stern a further 60 feet below. Careful preliminary testing was done to ensure the corroded hull could handle the strain of being lifted. Divers cut four strategically placed holes in her deck to connect cables to the lift beam. Slowly, as water was pumped out of her, the once proud Albion Ferry was brought to the surface, before being gently lifted onto the deck of the Arctic Tuk for her final journey. Read full news report. See the video.
Amix Heavy Lift regularly gets commissioned to lift yachts and leisure craft of all shapes and sizes — usually for dry dock service and maintenance, but also for cross country transportation.

Part of an ongoing series of lifting operations at Duke Point, Nanaimo. Ship to shore offloading of massive wind turbine tower components. These components will eventually make their way overland to a wind farm installation at Cape Scott on the north western tip of Vancouver Island. See the video.
