12,000 lb Galvanized 4-Piling Boat Lift





The 12,000 lb. Galvanized 4-Piling Boat Lift is the perfect solution for boat owners looking for a durable and reliable lift for their watercraft. Made of high-quality galvanized steel, this boat lift is designed to withstand harsh marine environments and heavy use.

This boat lift is specifically designed to be mounted on top of four dock pilings, providing a stable and secure lift for your boat. Its compound configuration of 31 feet of cable gives it a lift capacity of 12,000 pounds, making it perfect for larger boats. The all-welded construction ensures maximum durability and strength, while the hot-dipped galvanized finish protects against corrosion and rust.

Please note that piling mount bolts are not included with this boat lift. Additionally, this boat lift does not include cradle bunks, allowing you to customize the lift to fit your specific boat’s needs.

Invest in the 12,000 lb. Galvanized 4-Piling Boat Lift and enjoy years of safe and secure boat storage.

6,000-lb galvanized boat lift is equipped with standard 12 ft 6 in cradle beams. If your pilings are already installed, it is essential to obtain a precise center-to-center measurement between the pilings. Your cradle length will be determined by this measurement. When the center-to-center measurement is 12 ft 6 in, then you will need a cradle length of 12 ft 6 in If the correct length of boat cradles is not installed, issues can arise with how the boat lift operates.


To support the weight of the boat, the 8-inch pilings must be installed with enough seabed penetration. Each piling must be square and level with the others. Drive-end pilings (where the boat hoists are installed) should be 6 inches shorter than the other two pilings. After installation, movement of the pilings will affect boat lift operation and safety.


BH-USA flat-plate boat hoists are attached to the top beam with 1/2 in x 1 1/2 in bolts (included). Initially, mount the back of the flat-plate cover between the gear plate and the top beam. Align the hole in the drive pipe with the hole in the large gear sleeve. Set the gear sleeve bolt in place and snap the front cover into the back cover.


One of the flat-plate boat hoists is wired with an extra cable (45 ft) so that both drum switches can be mounted side-by-side. It is not recommended to wire both flat-plate hoists to one drum switch. For double motorboat lifts, we recommend using the GEM Remotes GR2 double motor boat lift remote. One to two boat lift motors can be operated simultaneously. It was designed to operate this type of lift.


Utilize lag or through bolts to secure the top beams to the pilings. Piling attachment bolts are not included.


The 10,000 lb & 12,000 lb galvanized boat lifts will come with 123 ft of boat lift cable. Unlike the 6,000 lb and 8,000 lb beams, the 10,000 lb & 12,000 lb beams have deadman brackets welded to each beam to attach your boat lift cable. Compounding blocks are included with boat cradles.

Installation is required. This unit should be assembled by experienced contractors or professionals familiar with boat hoist assembly and installation. Improper installation and maintenance may void the manufacturer’s warranty. The assembly/use instructions should be read and examined before operation.
