Boat Lift

Hi guys

Has anyone experience of boat lifts?

I would be interested to hear of types used, reliability, pricing etc.


Take it easy ....but, take it all the way.

FloatLift from Sunstream.


I spent months researching different models from around the world and ended-up buying a FloatLift from Sunstream in the US ( They are more expensive than other models but they're the best I've seen.

You drive your boat between the floats onto rubber skids; press a button on your keychain and the hydraulic rams pull the floats downwards and inwards to lift you and your boat in c30 seconds! Brilliant! The floats are foam-filled so are unsinkable and your boat stays perfectly level throughout the lift or launch!

I have had it since 2003 and haven't had a single issue with it.

Let me know if you want more information or advice on it.
