Cantilever Boat & Pontoon Lifts
The original Hewitt cantilever boat and pontoon lift continues to be one of our most popular lifts. These rugged general purpose electric or manual boat lifts have a natural mechanical advantage that actually makes operation easier as the boat is raised higher. Cantilever lifts also have a long history of trouble-free performance. They have fewer moving parts for superior reliability and place less stress on pulleys and cables. In the cantilever lift’s fully raised position, cables carry no weight; the load is entirely supported by the frame. Corrosion resistant aluminum construction also assures low maintenance – no rust, no painting. Our cantilever lift design is ideal for boats and pontoons, but can be fitted for smaller watercraft like a paddle boat lift.
We have three operation styles available: electric with AC power, electric with DC battery power, and manual. A manual boat lift is the most cost effective and simple operation. It has an easy to use hand crank for the winch. An electric boat lift will do all the work for you by raising and lowering the boat with a winch. It is important to know your weight capacity for boat lift selection.
