In celebration of Azimut-Benetti’s 50th anniversary, McLaren helped a 60-foot yacht make its way to the heart of New York City’s Times Square Plaza. McLaren’s surveying, site / civil and structural teams collaborated to successfully “anchor” this ship, conducting a turn-by-turn analysis to get the 95,000 pound, 15 foot 8 inch wide vessel and trailer safely to Times Square. McLaren also provided traditional survey measurements, laser scanning and a load analysis of the pavers in the pedestrian plaza where the yacht will be on display until Tuesday, June 11.
