So, why invest in a sailboat lift installation for your watercraft? A boat lift is designed to suspend a boat above the water - for either a personal dock or a commercial dock. Utilizing a sailboat lift offers several advantages over keeping it tied at the dock within the water. Read more here for boat lift information.


  • Security is one of the main advantages of using a boat lift. You’ll never have to worry about losing your boat or having it being smashed against the dock by the water. Neither will you have to worry about the boat sinking at the dock. The opportunity for marine growth is limited when the sailboat is kept out of the water, so you may not have to apply bottom paint.

  • Not only are sailboat lifts good for the safety and security of your boat, but they also protect your boat from corrosion. A sailboat stored on a lift is less subject to dings and scratches, so a lift can even add long-term value to the boat.

  • In addition, keeping a boat at the water is also much handier than launching from a trailer before each outing.


  • How to choose a boat lift? You will need to do your research to see if you want a manual or electric boat lift. Be sure to check your boat's length, beam, and weight and don't cut the specs of your boat lift too close - if anything, you will want to overspecify. Choose a sailboat lift installation from a trusted marine contractor.

  • How much does a sailboat lift installation cost? The cost of a sailboat lift installation will depend on the lift you choose. For example, if you are opting for a vertical boat lift, you can expect to pay a price of between $6,000 and $20,000. Hydraulic boat lifts, by comparison, can range between $2,000 and $12,000.

  • How to position boat on lift? Your sailboat needs to be centered on your boat lift. During elevation, you should properly balance the boat between its front and back. Be sure to pay attention to the proper weight capacity, regularly maintain your cables, and lift your boat to the appropriate height, as directed by your sailboat lift installer.
