Shipboard cranes


Compact design, reliable performance

MacGregor shipboard cranes ensure safe, accurate lifts on board ships and offshore installations, and port-based cargo handling operations.

Cranes can be customised and delivered to meet customer-specific safe working load requirements, with various slew bearing dimensions and pedestal heights. These tailored cranes accommodate operational needs and industry regulations.

Specially-designed offshore cranes can be delivered with an operator cabin and various functions integrated within the control system, such as active heave-compensation and auto-tensioning.

To meet customer and all major class requirements, offshore-rated and merchant marine crane models are fitted with all the necessary and optional safety functions such as length and tension-monitoring, MOPS and AOPS.
