Cab Positions

Side cab or center cab? With Marine Travelift – you pick, based on your preference. Either way, you’ll be getting a marine forklift that is designed and engineered to give operators the clearest views around.

With Marine Travelift’s forward-mounted side cabs, your operator will have maximum visibility throughout the launching or stacking process – the best in the industry. Our unique optimal visibility is achieved by positioning the forklift driver further forward over the front tire.
Our Hydro M_Drive center-mounted operator cabs feature wide view masts for maximum visibility. Enable your operator to see all the angles, right from their chair – making it the best center cab views in the marina industry.
