As I want to have my Alpha 29 Sportsbridge lifted out this winter I have been asked by the yard how heavy she is.  I haven't a clue.  Does anyone have any idea or a means of finding out?

Dimensions:
Length: 28ft 6ins ( 8.69m)
Beam: 10ft ( 3.05m)       Something like a 35 foot twin engine heavily built cruiser will weigh in at about 9 ton when new. If your boat has one engine then at 29 feet it could weigh in at a guess of not more than 6 ton.

That's very helpful thanks.  I have a single 35hp Nanni on shaft and the yard has a 5 ton limit so I may just be over that.  Since posting I found this site https://boatdesignlab.com/?page_id=270 which shows about 5 tons for my boat.

I used to have an Aston Seamaster 30, which I had craned out to clear the prop. Using the alarm on the jib, the crane operator reckoned the weight was approximately 4.5 tonnes. I wouldn't have thought your boat would be heavier than 5 tonnes.

Well that's interesting Steve, some time ago Sutton Staithe Boatyard pulled our Seamaster 30 with their lift and tractor for a new cutlass bearing and re-antifoul. It came out OK but when getting it back into the water it damn near launched the tractor as well, they estimated the weight to be around 7 tons.


Best Regards

Bob

PO20 But NR12 as much as possible.
