Powder coating customizes, protects boat lifts

Powder coating allows boat owners to customize their boat lifts while protecting their investment. It also cranks up dock appeal and allow boat owners to become the envy of their neighborhood!

Powder coating is a dry finishing process proven superior to painting. Powder coating is applied using an electrostatic spray deposition and cures to metal surfaces, such as aluminum, under heat or ultraviolet lighting. The result is a hard coating that is much tougher than conventional paint.

There are two primary reasons that boat owners opt to powder coat their boat lift: durability and appearance.


Powder coating a boat lift protects a consumer’s investment. IMM Quality Boat Lifts uses a marine-grade primer coat to protect the aluminum and prevent it from oxidizing. Our team then applies additional top coats with UV stabilizers to protect lifts from sunlight. Ultimately, powder coated boat lifts last longer when exposed to dangerous UV rays, saltwater and rain.

Many captains want their boat lifts to project a sense of style and personality, in addition to functionality. Bland is out, and color is in.

At quick glance, boat lifts often look the same because they’re the same color – raw aluminum. IMM Quality Boat Lifts can customize boat lifts in any color. Because colors can influence mood, they set the tone for your boating experience. That’s why it is so important to choose the right color.

Clients select custom colors for a variety of reasons. These are the three most common reasons:

  • It matches their boat
  • It matches their home
  • It matches their natural surroundings

Much like painting a home’s interior, it’s all about choosing the right colors for the space. The boat lift in the photo above, for instance, flows perfectly with the boat’s color scheme.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Powder Coating Boat Lifts:

Powder coating is a dry finishing process where a dry powder is applied electrostatically to metal surfaces, such as aluminum. The coated surface is then cured under heat or ultraviolet lighting, resulting in a hard coating that is tougher than conventional paint.

Powder coating provides enhanced durability and appearance for boat lifts. It protects the metal surface from oxidation, UV rays, saltwater, and rain, ultimately extending the lift's lifespan. Additionally, powder coating allows for customization in color and style, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of the boat lift and dock.

Boat lifts undergo significant exposure to harsh elements, including sunlight and saltwater. Powder coating with marine-grade primer and UV stabilizers helps protect the aluminum from corrosion and degradation caused by UV rays and environmental factors, ensuring the lift remains in optimal condition for years to come.

Customizing boat lifts with powder coating allows owners to personalize their waterfront property and match the lift to their boat, home, or natural surroundings. By choosing the right color and finish, owners can enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of their dock and become the envy of their neighborhood.

Clients often choose custom colors based on personal preferences and considerations such as matching their boat's color scheme, complementing their home's exterior, or blending with the natural surroundings of their waterfront property. It's essential to select colors that reflect your style and create the desired mood for your boating experience.

 Powder coating is suitable for most boat lifts made of aluminum or other metal materials. However, it's essential to consult with a professional boat lift manufacturer or installer to ensure compatibility and determine the best powder coating options for your specific lift model and usage requirements.
