Yacht management services company Stella Maris Yachting (SMY) has been made the exclusive UK service agent for Wise Handling Ltd. Effective immediately, SMY's engineering division will be responsible for servicing all Wise boat hoists and travel lifts in Britain.

“We are delighted to have been appointed as Wise’s exclusive service agent for the UK,” says SMY’s managing director Craig Murray-Gilmour. “Our engineering team, which is equally at home servicing superyacht, small boat engines and systems, is fully qualified."

SMY engineers have already been providing servicing for Wise on the UK’s south coast for a number of years and are completely familiar with the products and processes, he adds. The agreement consolidates the relationship between the two companies, as it widens the remit of the service offer.

SMY is well known for its engineering and project management services for all types of cruising and specialist yachts. Wise Handling manufactures mobile lifting and traveling solutions for the marine and industrial sectors – from small boat trailer hoists to large commercial vessel hoists.

SMY’s services will be available to the hundreds of boat yards and marinas which use Wise.
