JOWI Stock Power and Sailboat Cradles
JOWI Stock boat cradles come in five sizes. The correct cradle for your boat is generally determined by displacement of your vessel; however, in some cases an extremely long hull to displacement can override the displacement factor. JOWI Stock cradles can be adjusted to just about any hull shape. The vertical tubes are sized, based upon the LOA, beam and draft of your boat, at the time of fabrication. All painted models have a flat black enamel finish and come with an installed 2" X 8" pressure-treated keel board as standard equipment. Aluminum Models .5 and 1 are also available. Custom cradles and/or modifications can be made upon request at additional charge.
Overseas Yacht Shipping Cradles
If you are shipping your boat overseas, we recommend that you purchase the next size larger cradle, due to the extreme conditions that can be found on a large vessel encountering severe weather. It is recommended that you have the port review and sign-off on the acceptance of the cradle, prior to the boat and cradle arriving at the port for loading shipboard. Additionally, we recommend that the boat be matched to the cradle prior to it arriving at the port. Water loads (deck loads) are not recommended, due to the high costs that can be encountered by the boat owner, if the boat and cradle don’t fit properly when first brought together.
Cradle Delivery via Semi-Truck
JOWI Cradles have a maximum width of 96" so that they can be shipped via a standard Cube or Wedge Semi-Trailer to your location. We recommend delivery to a commercial address that can handle the weight of the cradle at the time it is unloaded. Deliveries to residential addresses or addresses where there is not equipment available to unload the cradle can increase the delivery cost substantially. If you don’t have a commercial address, or a means to remove a heavy cradle from a semi-truck, we recommend that you have us ship your cradle to the nearest truck terminal, where you can pick the cradle with a flatbed trailer or other . . . and move it to its final resting place.
