Trish Hamilton, owner of North Miami’s Keystone Point Marina, reports that the marina is “…taking delivery of a brand new, beautiful Wiggins forklift on the opening day of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Many marinas paint their forklift equipment to blend with the property colors—we’ve decided to take it a step further with custom-designed artwork by marine industry artist Hugo Cardonne.
Hamilton explained, “Since FLIBS draws such an international crowd we thought it would be the perfect venue to present a trendy, fun design for a piece of equipment that is an industry mainstay. It’s not just a forklift—it’s a moving work of art!
The new Marina Bull™ forklift will be showcased at the Wiggins Lift Company booth all week. On Thursday, November 2 at 5:30 p.m. there will be an official unveiling, with a naming ceremony and cocktail reception at the FLIBS, Worldwide Forklift booth number 1030. ALL PRESS AND MARINE INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND.
“The folks at Wiggins make the planning and purchasing of a new marine forklift really easy,” added Hamilton. “The engineers at Wiggins Lift Company have designed a powerful piece of equipment that fits our customers’ boat types, with some room to grow our larger boat-owner customer base. This is the sixth forklift we have purchased from Wiggins, and we want to have some fun with the process of taking delivery.”
