Marine Railway Lifts

The Marine Railway Boat Lifts are ideal for beach access or other gradual slope conditions where there are no deep water docks or seawalls. This unique type of lift is often used to pull boats or seaplanes onto dry land, into boat houses or inside garages. Often referred to as a “boat railroad” our system consists of type 6061-T6 aluminum rails on which a low profile carriage with vinyl covered aluminum bunks carries your boat and is powered by an electric push-pull drive. These systems are truly unique, so don’t hesitate to contact our custom design team to build a Marine Railway system that accommodates your boat lifting needs. Take a look at our design and see why IQ boat lifts are Built for a Lifetime.
