The benefits of storing boats out of the water are well-known, from reduced bottom scrubbing to less chance of sinking due to a failed bilge pump. Golden Boat Lifts engineers and manufactures rugged, long-lasting lifts adaptable to a wide range of hull shapes, vessel weights and site-specific conditions.

The company’s Four-Post Boat Lift is its most popular model and for good reason. There is hardly a boat shape it cannot be configured to lift, from inboard, outboard and sterndrive powerboats, to sailboats and PWC. It can be constructed to accommodate vessels from 4,500 to 56,000 lbs. Golden Boat Lifts offers Eight-Post Boat Lifts with up to 240,000 lb. capacity.

Heavy-duty adjustable guide post bumpers gently lead the boat into place. Carpeted wood or optional aluminum I-beam or extruded bunks provide maximum hull support. When ready, the boater raises the vessel out of the water with the touch of a button.

Each is engineered and built using 6061 T6 marine grade aluminum to withstand a punishing saltwater environment. Hardware and cables are superior quality 300 series stainless steel.

The lifts are fully welded. This avoids the electrolysis-induced corrosion and weakened joints common in bolted units. Only aluminum bearing blocks are used due to their long service life. Oversized winders are utilized to ensure fast lifting speeds and extended cable life.

The heart of the Four-Post Boat Lift is its drive unit. The company’s state-of-the-art Sea-Drive® features double reduction worm gears with an efficient 580:1 ratio, so there’s no slipping belts or broken chains. The unit provides 8,000 in. lbs. of torque at .96 hp. That’s over double the power of the competition. It’s virtually maintenance free and is backed by the company’s 10-year warranty.

Golden Boat Lifts are all CE approved and manufactured in an ISO 9001:2008 certified facility. It offers a 15-year warranty on all structural parts.
