New HarborHoist claimed to be the most versatile, free-floating boat lift on the market
HydroHoist Boat Lifts, a manufacturer of marine dock equipment, announced today the release of what it claims is the most versatile hydro-pneumatic boat lift available – HarborHoist.
Built to protect the value of a vessel in adverse weather conditions and the harsh marine environment, the unit is constructed with marine-grade, impact-resistant polyethylene tanks and an aluminium frame to extend the life of the product. With a capacity to handle vessels from 4,400lb-25,000lb (2,000kg-11,340kg), HarborHoist is constructed of the highest quality materials to enhance longevity in salt water applications. In addition, HarborHoist includes a self-leveling 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, outboard, tow/wake, pontoon and tritoon.
“To meet customer demand, we increased the side of the product, maximized lift capacity and increased the flexibility of the types of boats supported”
HarborHoist can simply be tied to a dock or moored with a conventional mooring system. 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. It comes 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. Its low-profile design does not obstruct shoreline views like other products. Assembly and installation are said to be simple and intuitive.
HarborHoist operates using standard 110 VAC power and can also be operated by an 1800-watt generator, inverter or solar power system. Canopies are available for additional vessel protection.
“We have seen incredible reception to smaller versions of the HarborHoist we introduced this year and received immediate requests to increase lifting capacity,” said Mick Webber, CEO, HydroHoist Marine Group. “To meet customer demand, we increased the side of the product, maximized lift capacity and increased the flexibility of the types of boats supported. With decades of experience and superior product knowledge of the industry, we have been able to apply our technology to manufacturing the most advanced floating salt and fresh water boat lift on the market.”
