Cradle Boat Lifts

Neptune four post and eight post Yacht lifts are often the most economical solution for lifting your boat where pilings can be used. Click here to read more about Neptune boatlifts.


A cradle suspended by stainless steel cables from two (or more) top beams resting on pilings lifts the boat out of the water. Structural components are 6061 T6 marine grade aluminum welded for maximum strength, and 300 series stainless steel cables and hardware for strength and durability. All of the forces are on the pilings, none on the dock or seawall.
