Posted by Michelle Howard

HydroHoist Boat Lifts,a manufacturer of marine dock equipment, has announced the receipt of orders from the U.S. Navy to provide HarborHoist boat lifts to protect Navy security and patrol boats.

The contracts for installations include ports in Virginia, New Jersey, Connecticut and New Hampshire, to be completed in April.

HydroHoist was selected through a strong vetting process based on the Navy's confidence in HydroHoist's history and the HarborHoist's saltwater friendly design. The selection process factored in HydroHoist Boat Lifts position as the industry leader in boat lift manufacturing, ISO-9001 certification, full-time engineering staff, and customer service department.

JB Robison Jr., HydroHoist Inside Sales Manager, coordinated the contract with the Navy and was the point of contact throughout the process.

The HarborHoist boat lift has a level-lifting frame constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum. It is the most versatile boat lift in the HydroHoist family - perfect for fresh and salt water. The unit can be tied to the dock by simply using ropes or through a conventional mooring system. The hoist is compatible with fixed or floating docks and works in U-shaped, double-wide, L-shaped, and square docks. The hull supports can be configured for nearly all boat types, including inboard wake, pontoon, and tritoon boats.
