Experienced boat owners know that a boat lift provides the best protection against the hazards of wet storage. A boat lift keeps your hull clear of the waterline to significantly reduce costly wear and tear caused by hull blisters, not to mention costly damage to outdrives, props, and shafts. A clean hull bottom is preserved by lifting the boat clear of potentially damaging wave action and marine organisms. In this way, a boat lift quickly pays for itself.
The cleaner hull enhances speed and performance and saves you money with better fuel-efficiency. Even with the best bottom paint, the hull bottom requires regular cleaning, and the boat lift can reduce the time you spend scrubbing away the hull growth and debris which piles up with wet storage. You'll spend more time enjoying your boat on deck, rather than laboring tediously below the hull, and bottom paint coats will last longer as well.
Southwest Florida boat owners have been relying on Duncan Seawall to provide the quality boat lifts to protect any type of boat from powerboats, pontoon vessels, and jet boats, to sailboats and yachts. We proudly offer a wide range of boat lifts from Golden Boat Lifts, the industry-leading boat lift brand since 1997.

We've already mentioned the complete customization we provide with installation for all types of boats with the wide variety of boat lifts to select from with the Golden Boat Lift lineup. But there is more to meeting our rigorous standard of quality which comes into play with the Golden Boat Lift brand including:
The Golden Boat Lift ironclad manufacturer's warranties provide comprehensive coverage for both the lift structure up to 25 years and the aluminum bearings with a separate 15-year warranty. $1,000,000 product liability coverage protects your investment in the unlikely event of failure.
Traditional shafted beam lift construction with 4 pilings is an economical choice for boats in the 5,000 to 28,000-pound range, and higher lifting capacity sizes are available on request. Golden 4-post Boat Lifts come with the recommended Golden Sea Drive gearboxes, or they can be purchased with the more economical Flat Plate drive.
The Golden 8-Post Boat Lift features 8 pilings and 4 motors for lifting capacity in the 32,000 to 240,000-pound range. All 8-post lifts will have direct drive gear reducers, while 32,000, 40,000, and 56,000-pound lifts use the exclusive Golden Sea Drive system.
The Golden Elevator Lift is the solution when conditions such as rock walls or seawalls, narrow canals, or local permit regulations prohibit the use of pilings for your boat lift. Elevator lifts are available for the 3,000 to 40,000-pound range with larger capacities available on request. The degree of incline is determined by individual installation conditions. Golden Elevator lifts all feature carpeted bunk boards, heavy-duty wheels, extensive stainless steel construction, and oversized groove cable winders for extended cable life.
The innovative patented Gatorvator design eliminates the top beam structure while using just 2 drive spools which are grooved for the longest cable life possible. The cables never wrap over each other on the spools and lifting the boat is 33% faster. The Gatorvator lifts have less cable than all other lifts and no underwater electric lines are requir
ed. The Gatorvator fits most piling configurations making it adaptable to boathouses and existing 3 or 4 piling configurations. Without any unsightly top beam, the Gatorvator has a clean look, and maintenance and boarding are much easier.
We've highlighted just a few of the outstanding types of lifts available from Golden Boat Lift. Details for floating dock lifts, deck lifts, and more boat lift and dock solutions are available at the Golden Boat Lift website at the link above.

When you combine Golden Boat Lifts with their number 1 installer, Duncan Seawall, you can rest assured that the result will be unsurpassed customer satisfaction. We've been named the #1 Golden Boat Lift dealer not just in the state of Florida but worldwide. We've sold and installed more Golden Boat Lifts than any other marine construction company.
When raising your boat on the lift Duncan Seawall recommends that you align the transom of the boat with the back edge of the lateral bunks on the boat lift. We also recommend using an auto-stop that will automatically stop the lift beams from bottoming out which can cause unspooling of the cables. For shallow water lifting, we can provide shallow water cradle beams and adjustable bunks. Dredging may have to be performed in certain shallow water situations.
Unlike some other Florida marine contractors our men don't work for 4 hours before being called away from your project to work on some other "priority job." Our electricians are licensed for work above water, and our experienced teams ensure that your Golden Boat Lift installation is seamless and smooth, leaving you with a user-friendly, low maintenance quality lift you can rely on for years to come.
We are a full-service marine construction firm offering a complete line of waterfront structures and dredging services throughout Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, Pinellas, and other surrounding counties. Our commitment to quality workmanship and unsurpassed customer service has always been the key to our success so don't hesitate to contact us for all of your residential or commercial marine construction projects.
