Why Use an Elevator Boat Lift?

Elevator Boat LiftA standard boat lift system is built off a dock. Typically, the cradle on which the boat rests is suspended between a set of at least four pilings driven into the sea floor. However, there are some areas where these pilings can’t be used. For example, in a narrow canal, there may be regulations about how far from the seawall a structure can protrude, making it impossible to install a standard cradle lift. And, in other areas, the seafloor may not be able to support pilings. In most areas where a standard lift system won’t do, an elevator boat lift is the perfect alternative.

Unlike standard lifts, elevator lifts can be mounted to either a single row of pilings or directly to the seawall. Despite this difference in installation, elevator lifts offer similar operation. Your watercraft will rest on a set of bunk boards that are attached to a cradle. To depart, simply lower the cradle until your boat is floating freely.
