Why Should You Buy a Boat Lift?

Why Should You Buy a Boat Lift?

Written by ShoreMaster Marketing

Stability, reliability, durability, and performance: These are all important characteristics not only for your boat, but for your future boat lift as well!

A boat lift is necessary for several reasons. Many new boat owners are surprised to learn that boats shouldn’t always be stored in the water. But more time spent in the water means more maintenance and care required due to deterioration and damage. Boat lifts move your boat out of the water, offering support and protection against wind, waves, and more.

So, why do you need a boat lift? We list a few of the benefits below!

  • To secure storage:When you aren’t using your boat, the water isn’t actually the safest place to store it. A boat lift eliminates water impact and fluctuation, so it doesn’t bang against the dock or sink into your slip. Additionally, when Summer winds blow through or storms hit the boat lift while help reduce Mother Nature's impact on your watercraft. 
  • To prevent damage: When a boat is left in the water, it leads to algae growth and corrosion on the bottom. A boat lift reduces the risk of this and protects your paint job as well.
  • To maintain value and extend lifespan: When you take care of your boat, it stays in better condition for a longer period of time — and you’ll be less likely to have expensive problems down the road and also maintain the value of your boat. 
  • To increase boating time: The best boat lifts make it easy to get in and out of the water — minimizing maintenance time and maximizing enjoyment! A hydraulic boat lift, for example, offers the convenience of push-button operation.

Clearly, you need a boat lift to protect your boat, maintain its value, and enjoy the water. They’re well worth the investment when you consider the extra cost and resources that would result from water damage and deterioration. The question becomes, then, which boat lift is best?

The answer to that depends on the style and size of your boat! ShoreMaster carries vertical lifts, hydraulic lifts, pontoon lifts, and PWC lifts. Then you have even more options within those categories, depending on boat lift capacity, the size of your slip, if you want a canopy or not, how deep your water is, and so on. Ultimately, the best boat lift is one that will offer the right level of protection and performance for your needs.
