Towards the end of 2019 Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club decided that it was time to upgrade their ageing hardstand equipment. An independent marine engineer was engaged to conduct a review and suggest a solution. RPAYC’s General Manager, Craig Evans, made contact with Butchart Marine Services and Brownell Boat Stands were chosen as their preferred supplier. Butchart Marine Services have now supplied RPAYC with a full range of Brownell Boat and Keel Stands that will increase safety, efficiency and also to make sure that the club is using correct equipment that is designed specifically for the standing of boats. This is an important requirement for the club’s staff, contractors, members and external customers of this prestigious yacht club on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

In addition to supplying boat stands to RPAYC all the hardstand staff, including General Manager Craig Evans, have completed the Brownell Boat Stands Safety Training course. Boatyard Services Manager Monique Mobbs commented that the course was very straight forward and with all staff completing and receiving their certificate they will become one of the safest yards operating in Australia.
