Best Boat Lifts for Shallow Water

Shallow water is a challenge for almost every vessel that floats. When there isn’t enough water, you can run aground or damage your engine. However, the right boat lift can accommodate the water conditions you deal with and help you save on storage, transport and maintenance costs. 

1. Durability

When shopping for shallow water boat lifts, make sure to choose one that won’t get damaged if the water gets too low. You will want to find one made of solid material that can endure bumping up against the bottom of the water bed when you lower your boat into the water. For example, EZ Dock’s Aegis™ 7 Boat Lift is made of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), which has high tensile strength and is resistant to damage.

2. Features

Shallow water lifts come with a variety of different features. You can choose manual, remote-controlled, electric or solar-powered models. You can also select from bottom standing, floating or suspended lifts. When picking the best shallow water boat lift for you, keep in mind that your dock may not support some of them. For instance, you may not have access to electricity at your boat dock, and you may have to be careful that you don’t block neighbors’ views with your boat lift addition. 

3. Protection

You are most likely buying a boat lift to protect your vessel from water damage. It’s critical to ensure the lift you purchase will safeguard the boat from other damage, too. If you live in an area with tropical storms or high water traffic, keep in mind that your boat lift might sway. Find a lift that won’t cause your boat to hit against the dock or obtain damage from the stormy conditions.
