Different Types of Boat Lifts



Having an adequate boat lift to protect your investment is an important decision, and we recognize that there are all kinds of options out there. This article breaks down the different types of lifts we carry and the features that make them unique.


We have manual, hydro-cable, and hydraulic boat lifts for sale. They vary significantly in price, so how do you know which is the best option and the most worth your money?


Manual Boat Lift

  • Less expensive, but they do require more effort.

  • Requires some strength to lift the boat to a desirable height.

  • Great if you're looking for a high-quality boat lift without making a large investment.

  • The M4500 boat lift is ideal for boats between 20 and 24 feet.

  • Advantages: minimal maintenance, a lightweight and durable structure, and a corrosion resistant finish.


Hydro-Cable Boat Lift

  • Raise your boat out of the water with minimal effort.

  • Features an acetal pulley system inside the tubing that, on-demand, lifts and lowers your boat.

  • Great for anyone looking to avoid the manual labour involved with cranking the wheel on a manual lift.

  • Slightly more expensive than a manual lift, but because they are remote-operated, hydro-cable boat lifts require significantly less effort.

  • The HC4500 hydro-cable boat lift is ideal for boats between 20 and 24 feet.

  • In addition to being lightweight, durable, corrosion-resistant, and maintenance-free, this hydro-cable lift features a hydraulic unit, cylinders containing environmentally-friendly biodegradable hydraulic oil, a 12V power supply with solar panel and side guides included in the purchase price.


Hydraulic Boat Lift

  • The primary difference between the hydro-cable boat lift and the hydraulic boat lift is that the hydraulic boat lift has no cables whatsoever.

  • Allows you to lift and lower your boat with no physical effort.

  • Require a minimum of 40 inches of water, plus the draft of the boat.

  • The HL4500 hydraulic boat lift is ideal for boats between 21 and 24 feet.

  • Much like the hydro-cable lift, the hydraulic lift features a hydraulic unit, cylinders containing environmentally-friendly biodegradable hydraulic oil, a 12V power supply with solar panel and vertical entry guides included in the purchase price.


In addition to boat lifts, we also carry a variety of canopy options. While your lift is protecting your boat from the elements below it, a canopy protects it from the elements above. With an aluminum structure, our boat lift canopies for sale feature a, 24" overhang, air vent, and easy installation.
