Is a Boat Elevator Right for Your Waterfront Property in Palm Bay, FL?

A boat elevator lift attached to the seawall in Florida holds a medium-sized vessel.There’s no doubt that a boat lift is the best way to store your watercraft in Palm Bay, Florida. Keeping the hull of your vessel hoisted above the waterline while docked will reduce maintenance while preventing common problems, such as organism growth and saltwater corrosion. However, not all waterfront properties are suited for a traditional cradle boat lift. In these cases, a boat elevator from DECO Boat Lifts might be the perfect solution.

What is a Boat Elevator?

Standard cradle boat lifts are built between two rows of pilings that extend out from the dock. When such pilings can’t be built due to local regulations or a subsurface that doesn’t support pilings, a boat elevator is typically the best option. Unlike cradle boat lifts, elevator lifts can be mounted on one side either to a single row of pilings or directly to the seawall.

Boat elevators operate similarly to traditional boat lifts, except they use a pivot system. When you choose DECO Boat Lifts, you won’t have to sacrifice quality when choosing this option.
