Shallow Water Boat Lifts
The Benefits of Using a Shallow Water Boat Lift
The benefits of using a shallow water boat lift are that they can be installed in as little as 24 inches of water, making them perfect for docks or waterfront property in shallow coves as well as for smaller boats. They are easy to operate and provide a safe and stable platform for loading and unloading your boat.
1. Why have a shallow water boat lift?
The convenience and practicality of owning a boat lift for shallow water make getting into and out of the water simple. Low water depth is a problem that causes most boat owners to drive their boats to and from a boat launch. Instead, with a shallow water lift, you can just get in and go. It’s also an important element in maintaining the value of your boat by lifting it out of the water when not in use, ensuring that your vessel stays in excellent working order.
2. About Water Depth
The water depth at your dock’s location is one of the most crucial elements to consider before purchasing a boat lift. Simply, at LOTO Lift we use your water depth to determine whether or not you’ll need a low water boat lift. If your average water level is less than four to six feet we recommend that you consider a shallow water lift.
3. How does a shallow water boat lift work?
At LOTO Lift, our boat lifts are pneumatic meaning that they work by an air/water displacement type. The system bolts to the dock, either from front or side, and pumps in enough air in order for you to be able to lift up weights ranging between 3,000 to 30,000 lbs. Conversely, as you vent air, removing it from the tank, your lift sinks and gently lowers your boat into the water.
