If there’s one thing owners of sailboats and power cats agree on, it’s that a clean hull makes for a fast boat with less maintenance. Storing boats out of the water is the best way to achieve this. Golden Boat Lifts manufactures custom Four- and Eight-Post Boat Lifts for power and sail catamarans, trimarans, and fin and winged keel vessels.
With capacities of up to 56,000 lbs. for the Four-Post model and up to 240,000 for the Eight-Post version, Golden Boat Lifts will engineer and build a lift for almost any boat. Hulls and keels are thoroughly supported using strategically placed carpeted wood or optional aluminum bunks, placing no undue stress on any one part of the vessel.
Golden Boat Lifts builds its fully welded units using 6061 T6 marine-grade aluminum. Cables and hardware are all 300 series stainless steel. This robust construction ensures a long life in a saltwater environment.
The company’s reliable Sea-Drive® unit provides unmatched power. It delivers a 480:1 ratio, harnessing its 8,000 in. lbs. of torque at .96 hp. This translates into smooth and effortless lifting capability.
Owners quickly realize how convenient it is to launch their vessels with a touch of a button. And upon return, heavy-duty adjustable guide post bumpers gently guide the boat into position.
They also learn that their investment is safer. Boats that are out of the water don’t sink if shore power is interrupted for lengths of time or a bilge pump fails. Nor are they at the mercies of wakes, tides and wind buffeting them in their slips.
And best of all, there is considerably less vessel maintenance. Scrubbing the waterline and bottom becomes a thing of the past, allowing owners more time to enjoy their boats.
Golden Boat Lifts are manufactured in an ISO 9001:2008 certified facility. Each lift is CE approved and comes with a 15-year warranty on structural parts.
