The sailing yacht Eos came to Harlingen for maintenance. Among other things, the masts of the yacht had to be removed. For this job Wagenborg Nedlift was asked. Besides the imposing size of the yacht (length 92,92 m, weight 1,500 tons) it was also a challenge to hoist the three masts. They weigh 25 tons each and are 74 meters high. Nedlift used therefore one of the largest cranes, the 500 ton Demag AC-500 in this job. It was an impressive appearance. It could have been seen from far it had not been that foggy....
