By constantly designing bigger and better machines with a growing set of standard features and options, we can say with confidence that Marine Travelift builds the best boat hoists in the world. We currently offer boat hoists that range from 15 ton all the way up to 1,000 ton capacity. Contact your local dealer to find out why a Marine Travelift is the right investment for your boat handling operation.
Our customer-focused engineers have developed an incredible set of features and options that maximize value for our customers. The following are just some of the features that are available, though not all features are available on every hoist we sell. See your local dealer for more information on specific models.
- Articulated Pivot Trunnion
Allows for the frame of our crane to flex under uneven terrain without causing structural damage or risking the safety of the load. And it requires no greasing.
- Patented 4-Wheel Steering
An option that offers even more flexibility and precision handling of boats in limited spaces.
- Ackerman Steering Principal
Provides a tighter turning radius which allows for more efficient maneuvering in your yard. Sometimes up to 10% more than our competitors.
- Bolting Flanges
Provide easy reconfiguration of the dimensions of the boat hoist to meet various hull requirements.
- Sling Adjust
Our sling adjust mechanism provides easy sling movement forward or aft on the vessel hull. No lubrication is required.
- Separate Lifting Pumps
Separate lifting pumps for each drum provide even lifting for both front and rear drum sets. This feature is a Marine Travelift exclusive.
- Hoist 2-Lock System
The blocks are designed so that 100% of the available travel height can be used. The operator has no worries and can hoist up until the very top without any chance of damage.
- Flat Faced O-ring Seals
Superior seals prevent leaks and blow-outs in the hydraulic system.
- 316L Stainless Steel Tubing
Cadmium coated bolts and Zink covered pins mean our fasteners resist corrosion in a harsh marine environment.
- Wireless Remote Control
Allows for total control of the boat hoist without touching the machine.
- Cordura Covers
Protect hoses from damaging UV rays and abrasions for longer service life.
- Lebus Grooves
Reduce wear on the wire rope by eliminating wire crossing.
- More Steel
More weight per unit in each Marine Travelift for more heavy-duty work year after year.
- Easy Access Engine Compartment
Made of fiberglass to eliminate corrosion and reduce noise. All routine maintenance points are easy to access.
- Ergonomic Operator Controls
Reduce operator fatigue, allowing safer and more efficient operation of the hoist.
- Beam Formed Structure
More rigid than box-type designs for reduced fatigue and a longer life for the machine.
- Superior Paint
We use a two-part epoxy primer and two-part polyurethane top coat for better corrosion resistance and better appearance.
- 4-Ply Slings
Provide maximum reliability and durability.
