Deck Cranes and Chocks

SternFIRST and Davco have combined to bring you the perfect combination for the stowage of your dinghy on the deck or hardtop of your boat. 
Davco have been making crane davits since 1986 and were the first Australian company to offer a fold-up and extendable boom davit not only in Australia, but worldwide. Davco have patents on their technology around the world and their systems are used by some of the world’s largest boat manufacturers including Maritimo and Riviera.
SternFIRST have developed a unique removable swivel chock system that incorporates marine stainless steel with hypalon pads to hold your dinghy securely to the deck when underway.  When at anchor and with the dinghy launched, the chocks simply slide off the quick-release bases to leave the deck free of obstructions for the safety of your guests and crew.
SternFIRST can also supply and fit Davco hydraulic swim platform systems and the new electric sliding roof systems that are becoming a much desired item on the larger sport cruisers.
Contact SternFIRST today for an obligation free quotation.



Thank you so much for the quality work your team did on the swim platform rails for our Riviera. To place an order and then have the finished product 1 week later was brilliant  and these days is unheard of. Dealing with you and your team was a pleasure and I will certainly be telling anyone who asks where I had them made that they should only go to SternFIRST for quality and excellent service..."

What a first class job you did on the deck chocks on my Riviera 45, easy to use and quality workmanship. Thanks Mitch..."

Quality, looks and functionality are so important when choosing an accessory system for my yacht. Weaver products are obviously high quality... "

Our Maritimo 48 was crying out for the solution SternFIRST supplied and fitted.  A great job from a great team, thanks again..."
