We are the exclusive dealer for Boat Floater boat lifts in Oklahoma and we truly are specialists because boat lifts are all we do.
Boat Floater Pontoon Boat Lifts
There are two Boat Floater boat lift models available that accommodate a pontoon boat. The Classic Model and the Free Floater are both excellent choices, but each provides a specific solution to your boat lift needs. Either model can be configured for a pontoon boat by adding a kit that cradles each toon as the boat is lifted or dropped in the water. If you currently have a Boat Floater model that is configured for a v-hull boat, this can also be modified to accommodate a pontoon boat. The main thing is to make sure if you are converting a Boat Floater lift that it is the appropriate size to lift the boat’s weight. Most pontoons will require a 4500# or 6600# boat lift. Keep in mind boat weight for the lift must include fuel. Better to go a little larger than not have enough lift strength.
Boat Floater Free Floater Model
The Boat Floater Free Floater boat lift is a great choice if you need to fit your pontoon boat into a narrow boat slip. Pontoon boats tend to be wide, so trying to squeeze one into a narrow boat slip is tricky. In most cases, you can use a Free Floater lift with a pontoon boat lift modification kit to fit it into a 10′ boat slip. It’s the most common model we use for pontoon boats.
Boat Floater Classic Model
The Classic boat lift model is a good choice for a pontoon boat lift in two situations. First, if your boat slip is in a particularly rough water area of the lake, then this is likely a better choice than the Free Floater. The Boat Floater Classic model locks in the upright position, reducing the wear & tear on the lift. Rough water tends to bounce things around and the Classic Model reduces this significantly. Second, if you are trying to “fit” your pontoon boat into a shorter slip, the Classic Model travels up and forward as it lifts your boat. This is important if you don’t want your pontoon boat “rear end” beyond the end of your boat slip.
