Marine Boat Lift

If the vessels you need to handle and transport approach 25 tons to over 1200 tons, a marine boat lift may be a better choice. It is a mobile boat handling equipment riding on rubber wheels. With wheel independent steering system, the boat lift delivers excellent flexibility and maneuverability. It can work perfectly even in a very confined space. The non-standard boat gantry crane is intended to launch, haul or transport small to large vessels with efficiency, stability and safety.

What Are The Uses of Marine Boat Lifts?

Marine boat lift, also called travel lift or boat hoist, is commonly found in shipyards, marinas, commercial yards, yacht clubs, water recreation centers, navy and so on to handle a variety of vessels. It is designed for different purposes, such as lift-in, lift-out and transport.

Lift-in: it can be used to launch a boat.

Lift-out: it is able to lift a vessel out of the water for maintenance or repair.

Transport: it can transport these vessels from one location to another and arrange them in a row in order to improve the utilization of limited yard space.

It Is Critical to Choose The Right Type of Equipment

Boat lifts may vary widely in terms of configurations and specification. How can you select a proper machine for your application? There are several things you will need to consider in the selection process of a boat lift crane:

  • Maximum boat weight
  • What type of vessel you need to handle?
  • The size of your boat
  • Your required boat lift specifications, such as span, travelling speed, lifting speed, steering mode and control mode.
  • The environment that the equipment will be operating in
  • Additional requirements or options you might need

A proper travel lift can help you maximize efficiency, work safety and durability. If you are unsure as to which type of equipment is right for you, you can contact us online and discuss your required specifications with one of our experts. We will propose and identify a suitable and economical boat lift for your specific application.

Marine Boat Lift Parts

Marine boat lift is a large piece of equipment that consists of gantry structure, hoisting mechanism, travelling mechanism, steering mechanism, hydraulic drive system and crane controls.

  • Gantry structure – the metal structure of the crane adopts double gantry U frame that allows for easy handling of all vessels. Rigid construction provides a longer life for the machine.
  • Hoisting machine – hoist 2-block systems enable the operator to hoist up until the very top without any damage. Each winch with separate lifting pumps provides even and stable lifting for both front and rear hoist sets. There is even number of winches on each side. The number of winches is determined by the size and capacity of your boat lift.
  • Travelling mechanism – a multitude of travelling capabilities can fit varied working conditions and performance requirements.
  • Steering mechanism – different styles of steering modes are available as optional to ensure easier and more efficient operation of the equipment.
  • Hydraulic drive system – the equipment is fully hydraulically driven with low energy consumption.
  • Controls – generally the crane is operated using a remote control or cabin control.
