New Paradise Roll-In Dock

We are proud to introduce our new roll-in dock system, designed and built at our facility in Vernon, BC. This new system is constructed from marine grade 6061 T6 aluminum with custom stainless steel fasteners, its is stiffer, stronger and tougher than the competition!

Our dock has a multi-track system that makes reconfiguring and customizing a breeze. We have many standard sizes and accessories available, custom sections are available upon request. The unique bolt together design gives the owner flexibility as the competing weld-together designs limit the consumers ability to replace parts or make changes, although bolt-together is a more expensive construction method we believe the advantages outweigh the additional cost, would you buy a car you couldn’t repair?

Our Superior 6′ Lifting Range: Why It’s Important to Have!

- Water fluctuation is regulated on Lake Okanagan, typical lake fluctuation is between 3.5-4 feet and flooding events can result in even higher water levels (as we have seen in recent years!)

- It’s imperative that your lift has enough range to keep your boat high enough out of the waves, as most locals are aware 2-3′ waves are not uncommon, especially during storms! Unlike the chain-hoist or cable lifts that are hardwired to the dock power, our lifts are self-contained and solar-powered, and the hydraulics are designed to be submerged. The powerpack can simply be removed in flood events, avoiding expensive repair bills and damage.

- Many lift dealers will attempt to sell you that their 4′ or 5′ ranges are sufficient, as their product cannot handle the additional stresses associated with a 6′ lift, or try to upsell you on costly range extensions that also reduce the capacity. Our products have been designed to overcome these shortfalls and come standardized with a 6′ range. Awesome!

-Our Golden Tornado lift comes stock with a 6′ lifting range, it is perfectly suited for the Okanagan Valley or lakes with high water fluctuation or large wave action.

A quality boat lift is an expensive investment. It’s important to do your research, ask your dealer questions about what product will be best suited to your environment and needs, and ultimately guarantee it’s your boat that’s high and dry (…not your wallet!)

Latest Installations

Check out some of our latest boat lift installations throughout British Columbia, to view more installations please visit our gallery. Whether you have a tournament boat, cruiser, or cuddy cabin we have a lift that will protect your boat.

The Sunstream SunLift and FLOE vertical lifts are the preferred lifts for lakes with less than 4′ of water fluctuation during the boating season, these lifts can be installed into water depths up to 25′. For deeper water or large fluctuation such as tidal situations the Sunstream FloaLift is the preferred lift.

Unlike most boat lift companies we carry a large inventory of lifts and docks enabling us to provide timely service delivering the product you want when you need it.

If you were offered a KIA or a BMW for a few hundred dollars more which would you take ?

Sure both have 4 wheels and a motor but there are major differences in performance and craftsmanship. All boat lifts are not created equally so it’s important to make an informed decision when it comes time to purchase.

At Paradise Dock & Lift we stand behind our product. We do not believe in steel construction, it’s a cheaper material than our aluminum and there’s a reason why! Our 6061 aluminum frames are just as strong and will never rust or require re-painting. We also believe the bunks should be rubber capped aluminum; wooden carpeted bunks rot, tear and require constant repairs. Many manufactures use these lower quality components to produce a subpar product. Our lifts use only the highest quality components and will pass the test of time. When your purchasing a boat lift your making an investment for many years to come so it’s important to be educated and make the right choice.
