Boat Platform Lifts

ShoreStation Hydraulic Boat Lifts.

When it comes to your time on the water, every moment is precious.

Don’t spoil your view with an unsightly lift. ShoreStation’s platform lift not only looks great, but it provides easy access to your boat for entrance, cleaning and servicing.

  • Fast, Effortless Lift You may have to see it to believe it! ShoreStation Piling Mount Lifts raise and lower your boat 4 to 5 times faster than the traditional pile mount systems, making loading and lifting in wind and waves a breeze!
  • Powerful Hydraulic System Safe, reliable, powerful operating system.
  • Unique Tandem Hydraulic Design With the simple push of a button the tandem hydraulic pump delivers equal volume to both cylinders, resulting in synchronized lifting that automatically keeps the lift platform level. Eliminating the need for dual motors or manual adjustment.
  • Minimum Maintenance The hydraulic cylinder is fully retracted when the boat is lifted so it’s not exposed to the elements. Preventing corrosion and fouling unlike underwater hydraulic lift designs.
ShoreStation Wireless Remote

Quietly raises and lowers over your boat in seconds with the push of a button.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are several advantages to our hydraulic boat lift over traditional lifts that wind cables around a pole or drum. Below are just a few of the many:

  • Speed – lift speeds exponentially faster result in safer and more convenient operation. Because the platform comes up quicker, it reduces your time needed to hold the boat in place.
  • Longevity – We offer the best warranty in the industry (by far!). Hydraulic lifts do not wind cables creating much less stress on the cables. This allows us to confidently offer an industry leading 15-year warranty on the cables and structure. Watch our video animation of the Cylinder Operation.
  • Hassle-Free – Unlike traditional lifts that can be over-wound or "bird nest" when the cables go slack, our hassle-free cable design makes it impossible for these head-ache situations to occur. We have created a system that protects the user from the lift, and vice-versa!
  • Reliability – 24v DC power with solar charging not only saves you electrical costs, but it adds reliability that the lift will work in any conditions. More importantly, it keeps your waterfront safer when you don’t have to worry about electrical currents near the water.
One of the best features of this system is that it is virtually maintenance free. You don't have to worry about annual inspection costs, greasing gears, or replacing or repairing cables. The only required maintenance is replacing your battery when it dies, which is commonly 3-5 years. You can even leave the battery outside all winter long if it is hooked up to the solar panel or battery tender and continues to get a charge.
Deep cycle group 24 marine batteries are recommended.
Simplicity is the trademark of the system. The lift is easily operated with the single push of a wireless remote and has built-in user safety factors that ensure the user cannot cause any damage to the boat or system itself. If a rare situation does arise where the lift is not working properly, the system can most commonly be diagnosed and fixes on-site without any major tools or repair.
We include Jax Marine Blue hydraulic fluid with all lifts. Rarely will you experience a leak, but in the event that is does happen the fluid is biodegradable and EPA approved. We recommend replacing the fluid every 10 years.
Yes, in the unlikely event of a cylinder failure, it can be replaced. It is also possible to rebuild the cylinder and install new seals. This would be a rare occurrence in our experience. I would equate it to rebuilding your transmission in your car…this usually occurs after 250K miles.
Reliable DC power delivers maximum and constant power, resulting in the fastest lift time of any power system available. No more worrying about low voltage AC power supplies. DC also yields 6 – 8 cycles on a fully charged battery. The Battery Tender or solar panel automatically recharges the battery with no daily maintenance.
The first two numbers listed in the model number indicate the capacity in hundreds of pounds.
