HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SMALLCRAFT LIFT

THE RIGHT FIT FOR RELIABLE, OPTIMAL OPERATION

FIND THE SMALL CRAFT LIFT FOR YOU

This page is devoted to boat lift capacities of 2,000 lbs. and under.  If your boat is over 2,000 lbs., see our How to Choose Your Boat Lift" page for larger boats.

Searching for a boat lift for your watercraft that is 2,000 lbs. or less?  Personal Watercraft and smaller boats can benefit from a boat lift for the same reason larger craft lifts do.  Boat lifts protect your ride from corrosion and damage that can occur from sitting in the water.  When you store your PWC or small boat on a boat lift, it will last longer and be protected from the elements.  It will also improve the value of your waterfront property. With so many boat lift styles to choose from, it may seem difficult to find the right choice. We are here to help!  The information on this page will help you narrow your choices and if you are still not sure, reach out to us today!

First off, any RGC lift is a top choice, because all RGC Lifts are constructed from marine-grade aluminum, guaranteed to outlast the competition and look great in the process. Furthermore, RGC has been building boat lifts in the USA for over 75 years, so you know we have the experience you can trust.  Choosing an RGC Lift means a worry-free, reliable and stylish place to keep your investment secure so you can relax and enjoy your time on the water.
