Overview of Boat Lift Options and Gear Units

Explore our range of boat lift options and gear units designed to meet your specific needs. From vertical cradle lifts to marine elevator and PWC elevator lifts, we offer versatile solutions for every watercraft.
The Verticle Cradle Lift

The Vertical Cradle Lift is the most popular boat lift that we build. We offer capacities ranging from 4,000# to 50,000#. They are supported by either four or eight pilings depending on the capacity. We have several different styles and materials available, including Galvanized Steel, Aluminum, and our bestselling Hybrid Lifts that combine the superior strength of Galvanized Steel Top Beams with the aesthetic benefits of Aluminum Cradle Beams.

The Marine Elevator Lift

The Marine Elevator Lift is designed to work in areas where a Vertical Cradle Lift cannot be installed due to site conditions or space constraints. We offer Marine Elevator Lifts in capacities ranging from 5,000# to 12,000#. The rail angle can be 35 degrees, 20 degrees, or vertical depending on the application.

The PWC Elevator Lift

The PWC Elevator Lift is available in capacities of 1,000# and 1,500# and in two different designs. The Low Rail design can be mounted on a piling or a concrete seawall / slab, and the rail stays in the water out of view when the boat is raised. The High Rail design mounts on a piling and the entire rail lifts completely out of the water when the boat is raised.

Gear Units

We offer several different gear units made by Aqua Marine Supply. Their products are designed and built specifically for the Boat Lift Industry.

The Flat Plate Belt Drive is the oldest gear unit design on the market and offers the longest service life when it is properly maintained. Unlike enclosed gearboxes, it can be repaired in the field to extend its life. It has a proven track record of durability over the last 50+ years.

The E Drive is an enclosed version of the Flat Plate. It is the original double-reduction gearbox with a full-size Bull Gear for maximum longevity. It was specifically designed for the boat lift industry by AMS in Ohio.

The DR Drive is a small enclosed double-reduction gearbox designed to provide higher speeds for smaller capacity boat lifts. We also have a larger, Heavy-Duty version for larger capacities called the HDR Drive.

The EBD is an enclosed Belt Drive that combines a small single-reduction gearbox with secondary belt reduction to achieve the final gear ratio. This hybrid approach reduces the number of moving parts inside the sealed housing and allows for a reliable high-speed gearbox for smaller capacity boat lifts
