Floating Boat LiftsFloating Boat Lifts are an ideal complement to a floating dock. Floating boat lifts were originally designed to meet the needs of boaters in the inland reservoirs of the south central and south eastern United States, but they are a good choice anywhere your shoreline is marked by deep water or water that fluctuates more than a few feet during the course of a boating season. While floating boat lifts are a natural fit with floating docks, they may also be attached to standing docks or seawalls. To use a floating boat lift, you must generally have a minimum of four to five feet of water in order to allow the tanks to submerge and the boat to enter the lift.

How they work
Floating boat lifts use a set of tanks, which raise the boat when they are filled with air, and lower the boat when the air is released. These lifts are attached to the dock, and are typically used year round.
