One person can easily assemble a MAX lift with no prior knowledge in just a few hours!

 

Professional lift assembly available for an additional fee, (assembly fee depends on exact accessories added to base lift). Southwest MI delivery available on fully assembled lifts and local professional installation may be available, please call for details! Delivery of unassembled lifts in kit form is available for all of Michigan and Northern Indiana, or simply bring your own 6'x12' utlity trailer or car hauling trailer!

 

For canopy sizing: Physically measure the overall length of your boat if it is available, including the outboard motor or swim deck, then add 2-3 feet to that number to get the proper canopy size. If your boat is not on hand to measure, take the stated length of the boat and add 2 feet for the outboard motor or rear swim deck on I/O boats, then add 2-3 feet to that number.

 

For example, most manufacturers don't include the outboard or swim deck, therefore a "210" boat is typically actually 23 feet or so and require a 26 ft. canopy, and a "265" boat would typically actually be around 28.5 feet overall and would be a tight squeeze on a 30 ft. canopy.

MAX StorDry deep-coverage canopies are built with extra rigid frame extrusions and bows, with a much deeper frame than the competition, providing far greater supported coverage for your boat with less wind strain on the fabric itself. This allows for the boat to tuck up into the canopy to better guard against blowing rain and sunlight exposure, rather than merely sitting under the competition's shallow canopies like an umbrella. The unique slide-rail tensioning bracket allows for customized annual tensioning of the canopy from one end which makes for a more appealing looking and tight canopy - no more baggy canopies flopping around in the wind, which also helps extend the life of the vinyl by reducing wind-whip.

 

The vinyl cover is a premium aftermarket Shelter-Rite 18oz PVC coated fabric with heat-welded seams and double layered reinforcements sewn into the corners. Very easy to install with the integrated 'quick-lash' webbing sewn into the entire perimeter of the canopy and provided bungees which hook into the canopy bows. Gray and Tan are by far our most popular canopy color options- less heat, less sun fade, and less of the unsightly and inevitable bird poop showing on top!  The standard 12" valence (measured starting at the bottom of the side frame rails) provides a whopping 39" of coverage to the top of the peak, or upgrade to 18" valence with zippered-end for roughly 45" of maximum coverage, yet allowing wake boat towers and tall pontoon seats to pass through for easy in/out!

 

 

For canopy sizing: Physically measure the overall length of your boat if it is available, including the outboard motor or swim deck, then add 2-3 feet to that number to get the proper canopy size. If your boat is not on hand to measure, take the stated length of the boat and add 2 feet for the outboard motor or rear swim deck on I/O boats, then add 2-3 feet to that number.

 

For example, most manufacturers don't include the outboard or swim deck, therefore a "210" boat is typically actually 23 feet or so and require a 26 ft. canopy, and a "265" boat would typically actually be around 28.5 feet overall and would be a tight squeeze on a 30 ft. canopy.

 

 

 

Max Lifts- Deep-Coverage Canopies

 

 

Some manufacturers do not count the swim deck or outboard motor in the length specification of the boat, so please physically measure your boat before ordering to ensure proper coverage! For proper coverage, add 2-3' of canopy beyond the overall length of your boat!

 

For example, if you have a 21' (210) bowrider boat, it is likely 23' of overall length (OAL), which requires a 26' canopy. If you have a 24' pontoon or tritoon, your OAL with motor is likely 26'+ which requires a 28' canopy. Going too large (i.e. 28' canopy on 20' boat) is just creating a larger windsail without the extra ballast weight that a larger boat would provide!

Boat Lift/ Boat Hoist Bunks

 

Shown Above: Triple SUPERIOR V-Bunks using our 12' SUPERIOR Bunks and Four 18" Powder-Coated Steel Uprights with 5.5" U-Bolts.

 

 

SUPERIOR & MAX Premium Poly Vinyl/ Aluminum Bunks

 

SUPERIOR is our own brand which is made to our specs and will not rot or break causing the hassle of having to replace traditional carpeted wood bunks in the middle of the season! The vinyl is much more gentle on your boat versus carpet, which traps sediment and turns itself into sandpaper and holds moisture, rotting the wood prematurely! Our lift packages above include one pair of 12' SUPERIOR bunks with 18" brackets- for V-hull boats bowriders, I/O cruisers).

 

Note: For pontoons you will need (2) sets of bunks (see picture, below) and for tri-toons (3) sets. Pontoons/ tri-toons over 25' long would greatly benefit from 14' bunks for additional support!

 

SUPERIOR 12' Poly/ Alum. Bunks (Pair) w/ Four 18" Powder Coated Steel Uprights, U-Bolts- $493.00 plus tax

 

SUPERIOR 14' Poly/ Alum. Bunks (Pair) w/ Four 18" Powder Coated Steel Uprights, U-Bolts- $523.00 plus tax

   

 

MAX OEM Bunks

 

Max Premium Poly/Aluminum Bunks with Brackets (Pair)- 12' for 3,500 lb.Thru 5,000 lb. Lifts-  $526.00 plus tax

 

 

Max HD (Reinforced) Premium Poly/Aluminum Bunks (Pair)- 14'- Required for 6,000 lb. & 7,000 lb. Lifts Or Wake Boats With Fins (Extra Clearance)-  $989.00 plus tax



 

Center-Lift Pontoon Bunks

Shown Above: SUPERIOR 12' Poly/ Aluminum Bunks With Our36" Tall x2"x2" Center-Lift Style Brackets For Pontoons Under 3,000 lbs. This Style Is the Cheaper Alternative To Double V-Bunks, Though V-Bunks Are Safer For Your Pontoon- Part Number For the Bracket

 

Center-Lift Style Pontoon Bunks (For Pontoons/ Tritoons Up To 3,000 lbs.)

 

These are a cheaper and simpler bunk alternative for lightweight pontoons/ tritoons with the benefit that they can also somewhat act as a guide for the boat when properly adjusted. This type can also allow the boat lift to be installed in the shallowest possible operating depth for a vertical boat lift when properly adjusted. Theoretically, if your boat can float at least 3" over the lift framework when it is lowered all the way, then these will theoretically work, whereas V-bunks probably require roughly 8" of water depth over the lower framework of the boat lift.

 

The downside is that the boat is designed to ride on the 'toons' and not necessarily meant to be picked up by the deck of the boat- though it is a popular option and it does work well for many people. However, picture that your house is built with most of the weight supported by the framework in the walls around the perimeter, but imagine that your foundation was only built in the center of your floor and trying to balance and hold all the weight of the perimeter walls.

 

This is why we prefer dual V-bunks, which support the main perimeter weight, where your pontoon was designed to hold the weight.

 

SUPERIOR 12' Poly/ Alum. Bunks (Pair) w/ Center Lift Pontoon Set of 4- 2"x2" Tubes 36" Tall w/ 8 U-bolts and 4-5" to 6" Hole Plates (Part Number BRKT-BU-2-36)- $449.00 plus tax

(Substitute These Brackets in a Max Lift Package Above- Subract $12 From Package Price)

 

 

SUPERIOR 12' Poly/ Alum. Bunks (Pair) w/ Center Lift Pontoon Set of 4-  36" Tall Powder-Coated Steel Brackets w/ 4 U-bolts and ]= (Part Number Bracket 36 & U Bolt 5.5)- $541.00 plus tax

(Substitute These Brackets in a Max Lift Package Above- Add $80 To Package Price)

Boat Lift/ Boat Hoist Motor Options

 

Lift Tech 110V Motor (Keyed)

Lift Tech 24V Motor (Keyed)

Lift Tech 15' Corded Remote Control To Hang In Lift Canopy

 

Lift Tech Direct-Drive Motors

 

Lift Tech direct-drive motors set the standard for 'electric boat lifts' as many people call them. Some brands offer integrated motor options from the factory (nearly every major brand utilizes LiftTech motors in some form inside of their integrated winch boxes), typically at a greatly inflated price with the only benefit being a slightly cleaner look. If the motor ever has an issue, that may mean replacing the entire winch and motor (or at least requiring any work to be done by a qualified brand dealer representative due to complexity) which can be very expensive.

 

The preferred alternative is to add a stand-alone Lift Tech motor to any standard boat lift with a manual crank winch, which can be added in less than an hour, or swapped out by just about anyone in 20 minutes with a ratchet and wrench. Motors can be added at the time of purchase, or anytime later if you give the manual winch a shot and decide that cranking your boat up and down 4 times a day on the weekend is not your favorite thing to do. These motors can handle any boat lift capacity up to 7,000lbs.

 

 

LiftTech Direct-Drive 110V Motor with Install Kit (Brand Specific), 15' Corded Remote (To Hang In Canopy)- $964 plus tax

(Requires a 110V GFCI power outlet at your shoreline, maximum of 100' of 12 guage extension cord or heavier guage)

 

 

LiftTech Direct-Drive 24V Motor with Install Kit (Brand Specific), 15' Corded Remote (To Hang In Canopy), 24V Solar Panel Kit with Post-Mount Aluminum Battery Tray, 20W Solar Panel, 4' Panel Arm, Hardware, Wiring- $1,373 plus tax

(Price does NOT include batteries- we don't sell batteries! Requires TWO 12V deep-cycle marine batteries- size/ series 24 and two black plastic storage cases- find them at Costco, Sam's, Walmart, Menards, Etc.)

SUPERIOR Universal Boat Guides & Boat Lift Step-Over

SUPERIOR Universal Boat Guides & Boat Lift Step

Our 12' guide-ons come with U-bolt brackets that fit either a 2"x5" or 2"x6" cradle beam size on your existing boat lift, with slider tabs that bolt to the upright tubes, allowing you to adjust the position of the uprights based on your lift.

 

Our boat lift step comes with the same U-bolt brackets that the side guides come with, and have two hole options which allow it to fit either a 2"x5" or a 2"x6" side cradle beam. The boat lift step WILL NOT WORK on Shore Station Brand lifts or any other brand which has a horizontal bar on the side of the lift frame itself- it requires a V-cut lift frame (the outer boat lift frame itself, not the cradle, like the photos above) on the dock side to avoid interference as the step travels up and down with the cradle. The vertical mounting tubes measure 32" tall, and has 20" of space between the angled support gussets and the bottom of the tube, so theoretically you can have 12-13" of vertical adjustability depending on the size of your lift cradle. The TITAN gray composite tread is 1'x3' and provides a grippy surface for confident loading and unloading.

 

 

SUPERIOR Poly/ Aluminum 12' Horizontal Boat Guide-Ons $443 plus 6% tax

 

SUPERIOR Boat Lift Step-Over (Aluminum Frame w/ Titan Composite Tread)  $219 plus 6% tax

(Sorry, due to outrageous shipping fees, we will not ship the Boat Lift Steps)

 

SUPERIOR Universal Vertical Guide-Ons (VGOs)

SUPERIOR Vertical Guide-Ons (VGOs)

 

Our own design of universal vertical boat guides is the simplest, most effective way to guide your boat into your boat lift/ hoist, while taking up the least amount of width for boats with a tight clearance. 4' aluminum tube welded to mounting bracket, with 5' PVC roller-sleeve cover.

 

The vertical design ensures that the guides always make contact with your boat's rub rail first, unlike horizontal full-length guides often miss the rub rail and end up rubbing against the hull or pontoons of your boat if they are not properly adjusted, or if you hit waves while entering the lift.

 

Universal mounting with the provided U-bolts, bottom plates and Nylock nuts fits any brand of 2"x5" or 2"x6" cradle beams.

 

 

SUPERIOR Vertical Guide-Ons- Sold Each- $76 plus 6% tax

Max Premier Poly/Aluminum Guide-Ons

Max Premier Poly/Aluminum Walk-On Guide-Ons

 

Premier Poly/ Aluminum Walk-On Guide-Ons angle out to guide your precious boat safely into the lift and will help to correctly center the boat on the bunks when properly adjusted to your boat's height and width. Once your boat is safely parked and lifted out of the water, the walk-on guide-ons provide a fantastic step to safely get in and out of the boat via the two modular steps that can be positioned specifically for your boat, and allow you to walk around the boat to easily put the cover on the boat.

 

Fits Max VL Model Boat Lifts- 3,500# to 7,000# Weight Capacity.

Max Premier Bow Stop

Max Premier Bow Stop

 

The Max Premier Bow Stop allows you to safely position your ski boat perfectly on the bunks to prevent pulling too far forward inside the lift and smashing your expensive prop and driveshaft on the lift cradle's frame. A must have for your top-of-the-line ski/ wakeboard boat!

MAX Motor Stop

 

Easily park boat in the correct position every time with the adjustable stop! Adjustable from 24"-48".
