Vertical Hydraulic Boat Lift Technology from ShoreMaster
Hydraulic Technology has been around for a very long time and it reliably powers machines and equipment in nearly every industry. ShoreMaster has created a boat lift that is designed to lift today's heavy wakeboard and wakesurf boats, larger pontoons and runabouts with ease, and less potential for problems due to the higher weights of these boats.
A vertical hydraulic boat lift is a vertical boat lift that, rather than relying on cables and pulleys to operate, uses hydraulic cylinders and power to raise and lower your boat. The resulting boat lift system is low-maintenance and hassle-free, with a quick and convenient operation that means getting into and out of the water faster. Hydraulic boat lifts feature push-button operation, which beats manually cranking a wheel no matter how eager you are to set out for a day on the water. Vertical hydraulic lifts are typically used in three to seven-foot water with minor fluctuations with soft, firm, or semi-firm bottom conditions. Yet, they are also good in shallow water conditions generally and are very flexible in where they can go and what they can lift.
Vertical hydraulic boat lifts combine the speed and convenience of hydraulic boat lifts with the flexibility and adjustability to various waterfronts that vertical boat lifts provide. Investing in a vertical hydraulic boat lift is a win-win situation for many types of water. Vertical hydraulic boat lifts are considered one of the best designs compared to traditional boat lifts. They offer the best combination of features you could want in a boat lift for watercraft of just about any size.
A vertical hydraulic system means you won’t have to worry about wear and tear or damage to cables and pulleys. This also means that you have less overall maintenance, which is more convenient and a significant cost savings over the life of your boat and boat lift and a matter of safety. When you get yours through a high-quality manufacturer like ShoreMaster, you know the quality, convenience, and safety will last for years.
Will The Vertical Hydraulic Boat Lift work in Shallow Water?
Absolutely. The ShoreMaster Vertical Hydraulic Lift is designed to operate in very shallow water for a Hydraulic style boat lift. The TruLift requires as little as 5.75" of water plus the draft of your boat to be able operate and store your boat on the lift. The vertical design means you can get your wakeboard / wakesurf boat on and off of the boat lift in very shallow water. The Vertical Hydraulic lift also works well in deep water, with up to 68" of lift rack travel - the ShoreMaster Vertical Hydraulic boat lift is simply the best boat lift you can buy for your boat.

Does the Vertical Hydraulic Lift Have Rams, Pumps or Hydraulic Lines In The Water?
The vertical hydraulic boat lifts are designed so that the hydraulic and fluid lines are above the water line: this makes them a more reliable choice that requires less maintenance over time. It also keeps those fluid lines safe from muskrats, beavers, and other wildlife that might try to take a bite out of your system and get fluid in the water (although ShoreMaster uses a biodegradable fluid that’s not harmful to the environment).
