4-Post Boat Lifts

One of the most common boat lift designs is a 4-Post Boat Lift.  A 4-Post Boat Lift is designed to attach to 4 posts by mounting beams to the top of the pilings on each side of the boat with cables near each one of the pilings to lift two cradle beams.  The boat sits on bucks mounted to the cradle beams.  The full weight of the boat is pushing straight down, making the design simple and safe.  4-Post Boat lifts are made for boats ranging from 1,000 to 30,000 pounds.
