The perfect companion for floating docks, floating lifts are ideal for deep water applications but can be used in as little as 4’ to 8’ of water (dependant on lift size). BoatPort lifts may be installed on almost any structurally sound aluminum, steel or wood floating dock that has an “L” or “U”-shaped configuration where there is at least one walkway finger or pier extending down the side of the boat. Lift operation requires access to a 115V AC receptacle. Optionally, a small portable generator or 24V battery may be used to power the pump lift. BoatPort lifts can also be installed on stationary dock provided water levels do not rise or fall more than a total of 16”.
Detailed assembly/installation instructions are included with every lift. The lift can be assembled on land, moved to a landing on a boat trailer, placed in the water and towed to the dock for mounting.
Your BoatPort lift includes an electric pump that raises and lowers the lift by changing the buoyancy of the flotation tanks. A simple turn of a lever is all it takes. The pump is housed in a water resistant poly enclosure with a key locking lid. The amount of time needed to fully raise the lift depends on the weight of the boat. In general, it takes approximately one minute per 1000 pounds of boat weight.
