FAQ’s About Boat Lifts
Boating experts to people who are experiencing their first time on the water, boat lifts are a hot topic of discussion and there are numerous questions that are asked frequently. We gathered up our expert team at Boat Lift Warehouse to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about boat lifts.
1. How much can a lift really hold?
Each boat lift can hold a different and specific amount of weight. It is important to understand the true “wet” weight of your watercraft to then ensure you are purchasing the correct boat lift capacity for your needs. It is always a good idea to buy larger than needed, in case of upgrading in size.
2. What types should I consider?
When considering a boat lift, the main goal is to keep your vessel safe when not in use and out of the water. A few options you have are pile mounted boat lifts, davit lifts, and elevator lifts. Boat Lift Warehouse has a few blog posts that go into more detail on these options, you can read more about them here.
3. How much is a standard boat lift?
This is a tricky question to answer, as there are a few variables to consider when totaling up the price. Selecting different weight capacities, adding features, and upgrading lifts all can affect the price.

4. Are there remote controls available?
Boat Lift Warehouse offers a multitude of boat lift remote controls. The pieces vary with technology, so completing some research and contacting a team member to answer any extra questions, we can get you set up with the remote control that is right for you.
5. How much additional water depth should I have?
The exact distance that the boat lift needs is the height of the cradle beam plus the amount of clearance between the centerline of the boat and the top of the cradle. Most lifts add roughly 12’’ to the required water depth over and above the draft of the boat. If the amount of clearance is higher than it needs to be, then that much more water depth is needed to float the boat off of the lift.
