Sunstream Boat Lifts says its SunLift SLX range offers the world’s only adjustable, free-standing hydraulic boat lifts. The lifts reportedly accommodate everything from PWC to 50-plus-foot boats weighing up to 30,000 pounds.

The battery-powered lifts draw 185 amps; they rely on a trickle-charge system (solar or AC) and can be app-controlled via Bluetooth. The SLX lifts work in fresh and salt water, and all hydraulic cylinders and hoses are stainless steel. Each lift has 6 feet, 6 inches of travel and can fit into berths with depths that are mere inches up to 21 feet.

Designing a skinny-water-friendly system wasn’t easy, says Sunstream CEO Ken Hey, but the company added a joggle—or notch—below the vertically traveling H-frame’s after beam.

“The joggle can be below the mud,” Hey says, adding that the joggle also accommodates a wide range of vessels.

Sunstream makes a variety of hull-supporting bunks, and custom fabrications are available.
