Boat Lift

Boat lift is a caisson type mini floating dock built on continuous tri – hull pontoons with lateral wing walls, suitable for shallow water operation. It is specially designed to transfer boat from water to land (Dry berth) and vice versa.

Specially used for docking and undocking the vessel, boat lift is moved in vertical direction with the guidance of spud piles.  The movement is carried out through ballasting and de – ballasting of the tanks.

Ballasting of the tanks is accomplished through gravity filling and de – ballasting system is pneumatically operated. The lifted vessel is locked with securing arm which is hydraulically operated, until boat is transferred to the land.
