HYDRAULIC BOAT LIFTS

Our hydraulic boat lifts are the most robust in the industry.  They feature heavy-duty marine grade aluminum construction with either 4′, 5’ or 6’ lifting range. The lift features an independent solar charged powerpack, stainless steel hydraulic cylinders with bronze scrapers to remove any marine growth, and rubber capped aluminum bunks to support your boat. The biodegradable hydraulic fluid is eco-friendly.

THE MOST ROBUST HYDRAULIC BOAT LIFTS IN THE INDUSTRY

HYDRAULIC BOAT LIFT FEATURES

H-FRAME HINGE PINS

The side beams of the lift have pipe welded in them with a Delrin bushing inserted to give more bearing surface while also preventing metal on metal wear.

PARABUNK

Most durable bunk in the industry, giving the most support to your boat with its wide footprint that spreads the load over a larger surface area. Our Parabunk protects the hydraulic cylinder in the down position from floating debris and any other potential hazards.

HEAVY DUTY GUIDES

The heavy duty guide-posts won’t roll and constantly require realigning. The included guide-post cushion provides an added layer of protection to your boat.

Empty Boat Lift

EXTENDED LIFTING RANGE

The lifts are available with 6′ , 5′ or 4′ lifting ranges. We can also fabricate longer ranges to accommodate specific needs. Our lifts will keep your boat both safe, high and dry!

Eco-Hydraulic Oil

ECO-FRIENDLY HYDRAULICS

The eco-friendly hydraulic fluid is biodegradable, it provides excellent shear stability to ensure optimal longevity of your hydraulic system.

Boat Lift Remote

REMOTE CONTROL OPERATION

Long range wireless remote with two transmitters. Spend more time boating and NO time cranking! The only boat lift remote that is waterproof and floats!

The Paradise Dock Advantage

PARADISE HYDRAULIC LIFT DESIGN

6061 MARINE GRADE ALUMINUM FRAME

The backbone to Paradise lift is our rugged structural frame which supports your boat. Our frame is far superior to any of our competitors and unique features of our design include the following:

  • Our design incorporates pockets and sleeves for elements to be connected primarily through bearing. It is well known that unlike steel, welds in aluminum are significantly weaker than the native material. Correspondingly, the Paradise design reduces reliance on welded connections in high stress locations whenever possible.
  • The most force exerted on the frame is through the hydraulic cylinder; the attachment point is subject to high stresses and hence is a critical area of the lift. The Paradise hydraulic cylinders pull on precision CNC cut plates that are pocketed to receive the rear cross member which allows us to rely on a much stronger mechanical fastening through bearing. Our competitors use welded ears which we have witnessed fail in the field.
  • The Paradise frame is constructed from marine grade 6061 T6 aluminum alloy with the minimum wall thickness of 0.25”. The pivot points have tubes welded through and special Delrin wear bushings to eliminate metal on metal contact. Many of our competitors utilize bronze bushings which, when exposed to moisture, react with the aluminum causing galvanic corrosion.

The Paradise frame’s unique configuration is such that the minimum required operational water depth is as low as 6 inches plus the draft of the boat which is significantly less than our competitors, ensuring that our customers can enjoy their investment regardless of water depth.

SUPERIOR HYDRAULIC LIFT SYSTEM

The Paradise hydraulic boat lift system is far superior to any of our competitors and unique features of our design include the following:

  • A hydraulic boat lift spends 99% of its time in the raised position. Our unique patent pending design allows the hydraulic cylinder piston to be fully retracted and protected in the hydraulic fluid for most of its life. All our competitors have the piston fully extended in the raised position, exposing it to corrosion and pitting; some have a rubber bellows to help protect it but these have only been partially effective and many bellows have failed over time. Our design offers the best available protection against corrosion, zebra mussels and other marine growth that can potentially damage the hydraulic components. We also offer the only marine boat lift cylinder that has a field replaceable bronze scraper to prevent build-up of deleterious material on the piston.

  • The hydraulic boat lift cylinder has oversized eyes that allow us to use 1” high strength stainless steel pins. These larger pins can withstand a larger load, ensuring that the points with the highest stress won’t fail.

  • Paradise uses superior materials to those utilized by our competitors in the hydraulic system as noted in the table. Our cylinders are machined from grade 2205 Duplex stainless steel, which not only has over twice the strength of grade 316L stainless steel, but grade 2205 also offers significantly better corrosion resistance making it ideal for marine environments.
  Material Yield Strength:
Paradise – Rod 17-4 PH Stainless Steel 125,000 PSI
Paradise – Cylinder 2205 Duplex Stainless Steel 65,000 PSI
Closest Competitor – Rod 316L Stainless Steel 29,700 PSI
Closest Competitor – Cylinder 316L Stainless Steel 29,700 PSI
  • Our hydraulic hoses are made from extremely durable thermoplastic 100R8, with a grade 316 stainless steel braid to protect from chaffing and marine mammals. All hose fittings are made from grade 316 stainless steel.
  • Paradise uses an environmentally friendly hydraulic oil that offers excellent shear stability.
  • The higher strength materials used, combined with our pump and cylinder design give us the flexibility to run at higher pressures than any of our competitors, increasing the lift capacity of the system.

PREMIUM POWERPACK

The Paradise powerpack is far superior to any other employed in the industry due to the unique features of our design which include the following:

  • We chose to run a 24V system instead of a 12V system due to the increased efficiency and performance from lower amp draw. Peak amp draw in a 12V system is between 230-280 amp resulting in excess heat within the components. As the electric motor gets hot it loses torque and efficiency resulting in potential damage and slower lifting times. Running at 24V allows us to halve the amp draw which increases the service life of all the electrical components. Our electric motors are sealed and submersible avoiding any water damage to the motor should it accidentally get wet.

  • The RC Unit we use to control the pump is the only remote control system in the industry that offers waterproof transmitters that float. The head unit is IP67 rated ensuring that it will be protected from the elements.

  • Many customers choose a hydraulic boat lift due to its ability to run off solar power. Keeping high voltage is imperative to a long-lasting lift. Many manufacturers provide a 10-12 watt solar panel which isn’t large enough to keep up with frequent boaters. Our solar panel is an industry leading 50 watt panel combined with a MPPT solar regulator to ensure you always have enough power to use your lift without causing damage to the battery from overcharging! ­­­­


We currently have a proprietary technology power source which are significantly lighter than the conventional lead-acid batteries which are widely used and provide a longer-life, quicker charging and offer more cycles per charge. This means that the fun on the water will never be limited waiting for the sun!

DEEP SIDED CANOPY

The new deep sided Paradise Canopy is the perfect addition for your boat lift, it protects your craft from the elements while making your life on the water easier and more enjoyable. No more tedious boat covers or sun damage to your upholstery!

Available in multiple colours and lengths, vented mesh ends allow the wind to pass through.

SOLAR & AC OPTIONS

The hydraulic pump is housed in a white fiberglass dock box. The dock box can be mounted to the lift via a leg mounted powerpack bracket or attached to the dock. 

The pump motor can be either AC or DC, DC lifts are powered by a deep cycle marine battery and can be charged by either an AC trickle charger or solar panel. 

CAPACITIES

We offer a full range of capacities ranging from 2,000 lbs all the way up to 20,000 lbs. Whether you have a PWC or large cuddy cabin cruiser we have you covered, we can manufacture larger capacities upon request.
