Which boat lift is best for me?

With the highest quality engineering in the industry, RGC Boatlifts are the premium option, hands-down. But finding out which model and style is right for can be the confusing part. When determining the appropriate lift for your boat and lifestyle, consider not only your current lifting needs, but the boat you may buy in 5 to 10 years. RGC lifts are constructed using premium materials and manufacturing. Each lift is paired with a frame, two cylinders, and a power unit specific to that lift and its weight capacity. It is not possible to “upgrade” or adapt your lift to accommodate a different capacity. Purchasing a higher capacity lift gives you the freedom to purchase a heavier boat in the future, but also adds significant resale value to your house or slip when you decide to sell.

When making your choice, here are some of the questions you may want to ask:

What is the manufacturer’s dry weight of my boat?

This is the main factor to consider. Remember that boat manufacturer specifications do not account for fuel, oil, ballast and add on accessories you have added including personal supplies as well as Coast Guard required emergency equipment. If you are unsure, take the time to have it weighed or give us a call and one of our trained professionals will help to enlighten you.

Will I be upgrading my boat in a few years?

Purchasing a boat lift with a higher weight capacity today could save you money down the road, rarely does a family down size there next boat.

Do I plan to sell my house or slip in the foreseeable future?
