About Float Lifts of the Carolinas



Float Lifts of the Carolinas proudly serves the HydroHoist boat lift needs of the coastal area of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.  We are proud to offer the HarborHoist Floating Boat Lift, the most versatile, portable, floating boat lift on the market today.  

When comparing our lifts with any of our competitors’ lifts, you will see that there is really no competition at all. The materials and process that we employ are far superior in every regard, and this allows our individual components to fit flush and work together.

While it would be nice, ideal even, to offer our boat lifts at costs lower than our competition, it would be unfair to match the prices of inferior units. Oftentimes the cheapest options cost more in the long-run with maintenance, repairs, and replacements. This is true in all sectors, from cars to houses to boats. It is important to purchase a product that will be as dependable as the people who make it.  HydroHoist and Float Lifts of the Carolinas firmly stands by its commitment to the customer.”

Correctly caring for your boating investment takes time and energy...why not let Float Lifts assist you along the way?
