    Boat Mounted Watercraft Lift?

    I had a customer today that wants to mount a lift to his 41 foot cruiser. Do any of you know of a company that produces one? I have seen them before but have no idea where to buy them.

    Thanks.

    I have seen many on cruisers - but built on the swim platforms. The guys 44' Searay next door has one, but w/a dingy. They're damn cool.

    They are the same type. I think the watercraft one is built a little heavier.
    I found one type called sealift.

    What kinda boat is it???? A friend of are family makes custom swim platforms. He's been building boat for 30+ years and does extremly high quailty work. He mostly makes hunting boats now but also does custom work, you want it he'll build it. http://www.banksboats.com/

    Yes they can,Ive seen 31ft boats with them. Best type are the ones with a hydraulic swim platform. I personally dont like the ones that hang off the back of the swim platform.

    it also depends on what kinda of conditions the boat is driven in.... I have many customers with lifts or davits, boats ranging from 41'-146' I prefer to have ski on the deck. I have had customers lose entire ski's with lift off the back and not even notice for hours. I work with the boat brokers to ensure proper mounting if they want to make sure not to have problems. Davits are the way to go.
