The “Nautical-Lift” is a unique lift apparatus,
manufactured from 316-L grade stainless steel, and designed
to transport a vessel’s swim platform in and out of
the water. The lift structure ‘Hides’ below the swim
platform, out of direct view while the swim platform
is raised. Its stainless steel structure and hydraulic
components, naval bronze bushings and anodic protection
ensure that it will offer years of sea duty living at
the waterline of the vessel.
When the swimplatform is up in the stowed
position, a pair of secondary latches ensures that it
will stay up in the worst sea conditions. When the lift
is lowered, the latches hydraulically retract and the
swimplatform is lowered with two stainless steel cylinders
driving the pantograph lift structure. Once in the water
the operator can drive the tender off of the swimplatform,
and with the RF remote controller return the lift to
the stowed position.
The “Nautical-Lift” is manufactured for boat builders,
and specifically for the vessel’s unique transom configuration.
One-off lifts are available for custom builders, in
lift capacities from 600 pounds to 2000 pounds. Pre-engineered
Nautical-Lifts are available through select dealers
for certain production built yachts. Please call Nautical
Structures for the current listing of yacht models and
the select dealers that these lifts are available through.
