What is a Boat House Lift?

What is a Boat House Lift?When watercraft owners hear the term “boat house lift”, many think it’s a lift system for a houseboat. However, this name refers to the configuration of the lift system itself, and not the type of boat. Whereas a standard lift system has no overhead covering, a house boat lift includes a boat hoist along with a roofing system. While this configuration is not necessary for all needs, there are a number of reasons why some boaters find it beneficial.

The most significant benefit of a boat lift system is the protection it provides for your vessel. By keeping the hull of your watercraft above the waterline when it is not in use, you’ll prevent common and costly problems, such as saltwater corrosion and organism growth. Because it is uncovered, this may leave some boat owners concerned about damage that can be caused by inclement weather and intense sun. One option is to place a cover over the boat while it is on the lift system. However, this is not a practical solution for some types of boats and it adds an additional step when docking the vessel. By keeping boats safe from both the harsh elements and extended water exposure, a boat house lift provides the ultimate in protection.
