Wide Applications of Mobile Boat Hoist

Mobile boat hoists find applications in various marine and waterfront environments, offering a versatile and efficient solution for handling boats. Here are some common applications of the boat hoists:

  • Boat Launching and Retrieval: Mobile boat hoists are frequently used for launching boats into the water and retrieving them. This is particularly useful in marinas and boatyards where boats need to be moved between storage areas and the water.
  • Boat Maintenance and Repairs: Boat hoists are essential for lifting boats out of the water for maintenance and repairs. This includes tasks such as hull cleaning, painting, inspections, propeller changes, and other routine maintenance activities.

  • New Boat Launch and Testing: When new boats are manufactured, mobile boat hoists are used to launch them into the water for initial testing and sea trials. This allows manufacturers to ensure that the vessels meet performance and safety standards.
  • Custom Boat Handling: Mobile boat hoists are adaptable for custom applications, such as handling oversized or uniquely shaped boats that may not fit traditional lifting methods.

Function Features of Mobile Boat Lift

  • For non-standard design, relative dimension, performance and technical parameters can fully meet the requirements of specific construction condition.
  • Steering system of multi-mode (hydraulic steering scheme uses cylinder or turbine worm type control), and it can conveniently and quickly realize equipment walking steering and transitions,the walking wheel group at the bottom is equipped with auxiliary support cylinder and light turning to reduce the abrasion of tires.
  • Steering method: straight, oblique, 90 degree pivot steering, “8” steering and more.
  • The main structure’s upper longitudinal beam and upper cross beam are respectively use rigid and articulated connection,and it can effectively avoid the phenomenon of uneven steel structure stress.
  • Lifting system has movable hanging point and fixed point lifting, and can adjust the longitudinal spacing between hanging points to meet the lifting of different length of yacht, and improve the adaptability of the device.
  • The whole machine with design of full hydraulic steering’s walking, steering and lifting use hydraulic drive with strong power, and it can realize the step less speed and stable running of equipment.
  • The whole boat hoist adopts the remote operation with the complete operation functions, wide vision, convenient operation and flexibility.
  • Full-directional, multi-level safety protection system with high performance.
  • Can cross transposition according to the different length of the ship.

Advantages of Using Bost Hoist

Using a mobile boat hoist provides several advantages in the context of boat maintenance, storage, and marina operations, including improved efficiency, reduced manual labor, versatility, environmental benefits and more. Check for details:

  • Versatility: Mobile boat hoists are versatile and can lift a wide range of boat sizes and types. This flexibility makes them suitable for marinas and boatyards with diverse clients, accommodating various vessels from small boats to large yachts.
  • Efficient Boat Handling: Mobile boat hoists offer efficient handling of boats during launch and retrieval. The process is typically quicker compared to traditional methods, reducing the time boats spend out of the water and minimizing inconvenience for boat owners.
  • Reduced Manual Labor: The use of a mobile boat lift reduces the need for manual labor in launching and retrieving boats. This not only increases efficiency but also lowers the risk of accidents and damage to boats, improving overall safety.
  • Customized Lifting: Many marine boat hoists come with adjustable slings or lifting arms, allowing for a customized lift tailored to the specific hull shape and size of each boat. This ensures a secure and precise lifting operation.
  • Mobility and Accessibility: The mobility of boat hoists allows them to be easily moved around the boatyard or marina. This enhances accessibility and allows operators to reach boats located in different areas, maximizing the use of available space.
  • Space Efficiency: Boat hoists contribute to space efficiency in a marina or boatyard. Since they can move boats horizontally after lifting them, it becomes easier to store and organize boats in a way that optimizes space utilization.
  • Enhanced Safety Features: Modern mobile boat hoists are equipped with advanced safety features, such as remote control systems and load monitoring. These features enhance overall safety during lifting and transportation operations.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: While the initial investment in a mobile boat hoist can be significant, the long-term cost-effectiveness is realized through reduced labor costs, increased efficiency, and the potential for higher customer turnover.

Work Flow of Bost Hoist

A mobile boat hoist is a specialized piece of equipment used for lifting and moving boats, typically from the water to a storage or maintenance area. The workflow of a mobile boat hoist involves several steps to ensure the safe and efficient handling of boats.

  • Arrival and Preparation: The mobile boat hoist arrives at the location where the boat is currently situated, usually near a body of water. The hoist operator assesses the condition of the boat, ensuring it is ready for lifting.
  • Positioning of the Boat Hoist: The mobile boat hoist is positioned in a suitable location to access the boat. The operator must ensure that the hoist is on stable ground and can safely reach the boat.
  • Attaching Slings or Straps: The hoist operator attaches slings or straps to designated lifting points on the boat. These lifting points are typically specified by the boat manufacturer and are designed to distribute the load evenly.
  • Lifting the Boat: The boat is lifted slowly and carefully out of the water using the mobile boat hoist. The operator must ensure that the boat remains level and stable during the lifting process.
  • Transporting the Boat: Once lifted, the boat is carefully transported to its destination. This may be a storage area, a maintenance facility, or another location for launching back into the water.
  • Lowering the Boat: If the purpose of lifting was for maintenance or repairs, the boat is carefully lowered to the ground or to a maintenance stand. Safety is a priority during this phase to prevent any damage to the boat.
  • Maintenance or Storage: If the boat is undergoing maintenance, repair work is carried out as needed. If the boat is being stored, it is placed in the designated storage area.
  • Return to Water: After maintenance or when the boat owner is ready to launch the boat again, the mobile boat hoist is used to lift the boat and transport it back to the water.
  • Detaching Slings or Straps: Once the boat is in the water, the slings or straps are carefully detached.
  • Securing the Boat: The boat is secured in the water, and any necessary adjustments are made to ensure its stability.
