Cradle Lifts

Reliability, Quiet Operation, and Low Maintenance

Introduced in 1980, our Cradle Lift is the most popular option for boaters looking to protect their investment.

Choose between marine grade aluminum or hot-dipped galvanized steel.

Select your weight capacity up to 45,000 pounds driven by our Premier Direct Drive or Flat Plate systems.

Long lasting floating pillowblock bearings quietly operate friction-free, even under heavy load conditions.

Consider ease-of-access options like a remote control system with a limit switch, or aluminum walkways and work platforms.


The Premier Direct Drive cradle lift system delivers protection and power while requiring very little maintenance. You'll be looking good and carefree thanks to this premier direct drive lift thats totally enclosed with precision gearing and oil bath.
