HydroHoist Boat Lifts, a US manufacturer of marine dock equipment, has announced the release of what it calls the most versatile hydro-pneumatic boat lift available.
HarborHoist is constructed with polyethylene tanks and an aluminium frame to extend the life of the product. With a capacity to handle vessels from 4,400 to 25,000 pounds, it is claimed to be constructed of the highest quality materials to enhance longevity in salt water applications. In addition, HarborHoist includes a self-levelling lift system for added safety when launching and stowing. It is compatible with fixed or floating docks and works with all types of dock applications including: U-shaped, double-wide slips, L-shaped or square dock spaces. The hull support system can be configured for nearly all types of boats, including stern drive and outboard.
With its standard rope mooring system there is no permanent attachment to the dock, which allows the unit to be easily moved in places that are prone to flooding and hurricanes. HarborHoist is equipped with a push-button controller and non-skid walkways mounted to the top of the tanks that run the full length for easy access in both the up or down position. This allows for easy and safe loading and unloading of passengers. The HarborHoist operates using standard 110VAC power and can also be operated by an 1800 watt generator, inverter or solar power system. Canopies are available for additional vessel protection.
