Why an Air-Dock Boat Lift?

Air-Dock has sold thousands of boat lifts throughout the world since 1999. Our inflatable floating boat lifts hoist boats as small as personal water-craft and as large as 18,000 pounds and performance boats up to 51 feet long.

A boat hoist will keep your hull clean. Algae growth on the gelcoat of your boat hull not only looks unsightly but can permanently stain the boat reducing its resale value. Algae growth can also reduce your top speed by 10 mph and it will greatly reduce your gas mileage.
