Two feet, plus the draft of the boat. Approximately three feet.

HarborHoist has been successfully marketed for 6 years.

No, the HarborHoist is purposefully designed to be simple. In fact, there are no moving parts at all! Nothing that requires maintenance.

The structure is a marine grade aluminum. All hardware is stainless steel. While the boat is lifted and at rest there are no metallic components in the water.

The standard power source is a simple 110 volt. The lift can also be easily operated with an inverter on boat battery. Also available is a solar unit that mounts to the dock.

As your boating needs change, capacity and bunking can adapt to your boat! No need to buy an entire new lift. HarborHoist can accommodate any boat up to 16,000 lbs.

HarborHoist offers unparalleled easy accessibility to your boat. Each tank has a 1’x4′ non-skid step pad, making entering and exiting your boat safe for boaters of all ages.

None! The lift and controls are combined in a single unit.

No. In most cases, you won’t see the lift.

A good rule of thumb is the width is 2 feet wider than the beam of the boat.



“I purchased your lift for my boat in 2013. I love it! I am directly on the Intracoastal on Johns Island, SC, and the lift receives a lot of abuse from boat wakes and storms with never a problem!”

“I found Chuck and his staff at Tidewater Boat Lifts to be the most courteous, professional, and knowledgeable that I have ever dealt with on a boat lift installation…. All in all, the experience was outstanding! Chuck and his installation crew did everything they said they would do and delivered when promised. I could not be happier with my 18k Harbor Hoist lift they supplied for my 39ft Nor-Tech 390 Sport CC… the lift performs flawlessly. With the HarborHoist, our view is unobstructed and my boat sits there on the lift like it is on display. After my experience with Tidewater Boat Lifts and my HarborHoist, I will tell anyone looking for a boat lift they should be buying a HarborHoist.”

“For me, I wanted a lifting mechanism to keep the boat out of the water when not in use to both preserve the bottom and avoid surges at the dock from current, tides and wakes from other boaters. This all points to getting a permanent boat lift, right? I needed a solution that would be affordable, easy to use, withstand abuse and last; the less maintenance, the better. If at all possible, I wanted something BETTER than the traditional permanent lift. I found the solution to ALL of my concerns with the LAUNCH PAD from Tidewater Boat Lifts. This system is beyond my expectations because it also is expandable to accommodate a larger vessel.

There are two things about this experience that sold me and that was: the minimum of moving parts because of its excellent engineering, and the representative for Tidewater Boat Lifts, Chuck Gerber.”

“I would like to say that I am totally pleased with my Launch Pad lift. We have had no problems with it at all. It easily adjusts to accommodate different Hull designs. It is portable in that I can move it around to different docks, it required no installation process, no permits, it is Eco-friendly and simplistic in design. We are very happy and would recommend it to anyone.”

Great solution for my World Cat 295cc. Sits high above the water. (The lift is) very stable. I see many other boats rocking in their slip. (The HarborHoist) provides a very safe platform getting on and off your boat… with a nice place to walk down the starboard side for cleaning. Jeremy, the installer, was great (with a) high level of customer service.

“… Being my first one to assemble I cant say enough about the ease of assembly. The amount of engineering and forethought that went into the design of this lift is amazing. A small but important detail such as how the tank can support itself without falling over while the components are attached is great… the (HarborHoist) lift is hands down the best lift on the market today.”

“I (was) originally was worried that the Tidewater Launch Pad boat lift would be too unstable for my location. My dock is exposed to a very busy section of the ICW near Charleston, SC, and directly across from a very popular boat landing. The wake from fast moving yachts, inland cruise ships, tugs, and recreational boats is constant. The lift is unprotected from wave action generated by both the weather and vessels. It has performed exceptionally well under these harsh conditions. When the boat is loaded on the lift it is actually much more stable than when the boat alone is tied to my floating dock. The Launch Pad lift doesn’t obstruct our views of the river like our neighbor’s 4 point lift, has fewer mechanical parts, and loads/launches faster than his 4 point lift.”

“This hurricane (Irma) was a category 4 with the eye making landfall 20 miles west of us. We had a 7.5 ft. surge that went into the downstairs of our home. Our boat had no problems, strapped to the HarborHoist Boat Lift. (The HarborHoist Boat Lift) worked as advertised, rising with the surge. You might see the mast of a 41 ft sailboat that sunk directly across the canal. There was another boat about our size that was on a conventional lift, it was knocked off the lift and sunk. Your (HarborHoist) lift made all the difference!”
