Wiggins Lift Co., Inc., has been awarded an Innovation Award at the Marina Recreation Association’s 44th Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show. The Conference was held on October 26–28 at the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort in Santa Barbara, California. CEO Michele Wiggins-McDowell and President Mike Wiggins received the award.
The Award honors development and technical advances in the recreational marina and boatyard industry, recognizing those who have advanced technology in a way that materially affects the industry.
The MRA offered the award to Wiggins for their new Wiggins Marina FLX, a revolutionary new approach to marina lifts. This unique machine has all-wheel steering, traversing mast, load-spreading, rotating cab, and Wiggins’ StabiLift™, and much more. It can perform crab steering, 4-wheel pivots, and side step turns, allowing it to maneuver in spaces never before possible. The first of these units was delivered to The Boat House Marina in Perth, Australia in September of this year.
The Award itself is a mahogany-clad custom blown glass vessel made in France. The chrome hardware and anchor cap are Belgian, and the nautically-inspired result is a handsome addition to any display case, bar or yacht. The design is based on the legendary boats of the Riviera and the look of the famous 1960’s Riva “Aquarama.” The vodka itself is made in Northeastern France with water from the French Alps, distilled five times.
Wiggins Lift thanks the MRA for this wonderful award!
