Pontoon is one of a number of floats used chiefly to support a bridge, to raise a sunken ship, or to float a hydroplane or a floating dock. Pontoons have been built of wood, of hides stretched over wicker frames, of copper or tin sheet metal sheathed over wooden frames, of aluminum, and of steel. The original and widespread use was to support temporary military bridges.
Cyrus the Great built (536) the earliest pontoon bridge in history, using skin-covered pontoons.However, pontoons are usually flat-bottomed boats. And these specialized pontoon boats require a different kind of boatlift to support it and give the ultimate and best results.
Offers a complete line of maintenance free aluminum pontoon lifts. Our lifts are designed and engineered with features that make each lift work with your particular boat or pontoon. Adjustable leveling legs make it easy to set the right depth and our self-braking winch system allows for safe and easy operation. Most of the pontoon boatlifts are constructed of high quality marine alloy aluminum for maximum strength and durability. Aluminum is completely rust proof and corrosion resistant.
Weather or ultraviolet rays do not affect it. Bunk assemblies adjust both vertically and horizontally for maximum pontoon boat support.With an ageing population, more pontoon boaters are turning to motorized systems and manual operating system is fast becoming a thing of yester years. Therefore, with the advancement of technologies, pontoon boatlifts are available with the best of facilities like remote controls, AC charges and solar power which adds to the comfort to meet the everyday need in a less time consuming fashion..
