Many watercraft owners turn to boat davits for their waterfront properties in Miami, Florida, as a means of keeping their vessels out of salt water when not in use. Certainly, it is important for a boat’s hull to not be constantly exposed to salt water, as this can result in corrosion and organism growth – both costly problems. However, davits are not typically the best solution to these problems. This is because davits suspend a boat rather than support it, placing strain on the hull and potentially causing damage over time.
To best protect your watercraft from both warping and the deleterious effects of salt water, having a boat lift installed on your property in Miami, FL, is the best solution. As opposed to boat davits, lift systems cradle your boat from the bottom, so there is no strain on the hull. And when you turn to DECO Boat Lifts, you’ll enjoy a variety of benefits that can’t be found with boat davits. For example, we offer the innovative Maxi Lift, which is comparatively priced with davits, but has numerous advanced features, such as a heavy duty flat plate drive system with lift capacities of up to 16,000 lbs.
DECO Boat Lifts also offers other lift system options, such as our Concept CRS Lift, which features a direct drive system with unbeatable lift power. And another benefit to choosing one of our lifts over boat davits is that you’ll get to choose a configuration that suits your needs and docking situation. Our Beamless Lift is a popular choice because it is designed without overhead beams to make moving about the vessel to perform cleaning and maintenance as easy as possible. Plus, it is free from underwater cabling, which reduces wear and the need for replacement parts.
