Even in the best conditions, many boaters often feel insecure stepping from a dock onto a floating boat. Offering solid, sure-footed 360 degree access to the vessel, along with the benefits of out-of-water storage, Golden Boat Lifts introduces its custom-built Golden Deck Lift.

To use, boaters simply motor in between the guide posts. With the press of a button, the innovative Golden Deck Lift rises and perfectly nestles the boat or PWC securely between the custom-fitted bunks. Water instantly drains through the grated material. Then, it’s simply a matter of stepping out of the boat onto the deck, just like exiting a car onto a driveway.

The Golden Deck Lift blends seamlessly with its surroundings and improves waterfront aesthetics. It enables easier and safer boarding and disembarkation. For boats with taller gunwales, stairs can be easily added. Because the deck is typically set to stop flush with the land-based decking or walkway, provisions and equipment can be rolled right up to the boat. This stable, spacious surface also makes vessel maintenance ultra-convenient.

Available in various colors, the decking is constructed of a state-of-the art polymer that is rot- and insect-resistant, won’t shrink or swell, and requires absolutely no treating. The entire surface has a knurled, slip-resistant finish. Environmentally friendly, the grating allows sunlight to penetrate the deck, allowing submerged aquatic vegetation to grow.

Golden Deck Lifts are custom-built to work with any of the company’s lift capacities. They can be made in an almost unlimited range of sizes and shapes. Each utilize Golden Boat Lifts’ Sea-Drive®, a gearbox so reliable, with over 18,000 sold, none have failed.

For over 30 years, Golden Boat Lifts has manufactured a wide range of dependable and easy-to-use aluminum boat lifts for a broad variety of hull shapes and weights up to 250,000 lbs. The company is an ISO 9001:2008 certified facility.
