Launching and loading your dinghy or Jet Ski from davits or a swim platform can be a back breaking undertaking, even with the aid of mechanics. A cradle lift, that is an integral part of your boat’s stern platform or fitted outboard of your current platform makes launching auxiliary watercraft, easier. It also protects your dinghy because it sits in a cradle made to fit its particular bottom.
Benefits of a Cradle Lift
Many boat owners store their dinghy or RIB on davits that are often not strong enough for the weight of a PWC. You will also see them lashed to stern platforms and cabin tops. They are stored when you use these methods of transportation but they are not easily accessible. Hydraulic platforms that raise and lower are a step up from davits when using your swim platform for dinghy storage and when fitted with a cradle lift is the best way to transport your PWC or dinghy on the stern of your Sea Ray.
All Sealift platforms come with pop-up chocks that neatly nestle the bottoms of most V-bottom RIBS and personal watercraft. This helps secure them when loaded while offering a clear deck for use as a swim and loading platform for your MJM 50Z. Available as an option on Sea Ray boats, Hinckley Yachts, Grand Banks and Grand Banks Eastbay Series, Lazzara Yachts, and MJM Yachts, or as an addition to your current boat, Sealift platforms are built to last and easy to maintain.
Do you Need One?
For the avid yachtsman ease of use is the key to enjoying your yacht. The ability to launch and retrieve your auxiliary watercraft easily can add to this pleasure. The addition of a Sealift cradle lift will make your days on the water more enjoyable and is why you need one on your new boat, or on the boat, you already have.
