Lifting Your Dreams... No Matter The Size

No matter what size, Summerset Boat Lifts can help protect your boat this coming winter. While traditionally people used to remove their boats from the lake over the winter, it's becoming more and more common (and much easier) to leave your boat up on a lift. Here at Summerset Boat Lifts, we can help prepare your lift for the long winter ahead - no matter what size boat you own! Take a look below to learn about the various boat sizes we can lift!

PWC Lifts 

Our personal watercraft lifts come in 3 styles: side-mount, single front-mount and double front-mount. The side mount PWC lift is ideal for those looking to save space, as the footprint on the dock is only 5 1/2 feet instead of 11 feet. The flagship of our PWC line, the poly tank front-mount unit is quite capable of withstanding any water conditions. The single-tank by design will hold your watercraft higher out of the water than a double-tank would. The double is an extension of our popular single tank design.

4,000 & 6,000 LB Lifts 

The 6,500 lb lift is an ideal capacity for almost every tritoon on the Lake of the Ozarks. the mechanism and structure of the lift are well-suited for the rough waters that our lake has to offer during the busy summer months. From a 24 foot deck boat to a 27 foot tritoon with a 300 hp outboard, this is the boat lift for your needs.

8,000 & 10,000 LB Lifts 

Our 8,000 lb boat lifts are unique to the industry in that the structure has c-channel on the bottom of the tanks, which allows the weight of the boat to be distributed across many more points than the competition. The 10,000 lb lift utilizes the same structure and mechanism, giving you the opportunity to grow into a bigger boat utilizing the same lift later on.

12,000 - 17,000 LB Lifts

Our 12,000 lb lift is a heavy-duty 6-arm mechanism designed for the rough waters of the Lake of the Ozarks. Our 14,000 lb lift is our first 3-tank system and builds on the foundation of our 12,000 lb lift. The 17,000 lb lift caps off the trio of 6-arm mechanisms available. It is perfectly capable of lifting many of the 34 to 35 foot day cruisers.

20,000 LB & Bigger Lifts 

Suited for many 37-41 foot day cruisers, the 20,000 lb lift is an 8-arm mechanism that features four structures that create a rigid box to dissipate the weight of the boat over many points on the lift and dock. The 24,000 lb lift is available in an 8-arm or 10-arm mechanism. The four tank system offers a superb weight to width ratio, offering great stability for your boat. Larger lifts can be custom built just for you! Your exquisite taste in big boats demands the best in boat lifts.

The wrong size boat lift can be detrimental to your vessel. If your lift isn't able to properly lift your boat out of the water it may break and allow your boat to sink down into the water. Protect your boat and lift your dreams with our Lake of the Ozarks boat lift company! If you are unsure your lift is the right size for your boat, give us a call today. We look forward to lifting your dreams!

Tips to Prepare Your Boat & Lift for the Off-Season

As the summer boating season comes to a close, you may be thinking about preparing your water toys and dock for the off-season. It's important to protect your investments and prepare your boat and lift for the winter months. With proper care, you have a better chance of ensuring your boating season will kick off smoothly next spring! Take a look below to learn how you can prepare your lift and boat for the off-season!


Prepare Boat Lift for Winter

Your boat lift should be maintained at least twice a year. Once in the fall and again in the spring. This process can double check all the fittings are tight and your lift is ready to take on the damage that may happen during the coming seasons. Catching a small repair early is important to help prevent further, more permanent damage.The potential for damage during the winter months is strongly due to freezing water. Your lift hoses, connector arms, and tubs can all be damaged by the freezing temperatures. While we are checking over your lift before winter hits, you can go ahead and schedule your spring check up, as well. We look forward to ensuring your lift is ready for the harsh winter weather!

Prepare Dock for Winter

As winter nears, it's important to think about the wellbeing of your dock. Freezing water can cause a number of issues for docks. We can install de-icers near your dock to help keep the water moving - therefore reducing the chance of it freezing. This can drastically reduce the potential damage to your dock, lift, and boat! It's a great way to protect your investment this coming winter!

Prepare Boat for Winter

As we near the cooler time of year, it's time to prepare your boat for winter. It's important to winterize your boat every year. This process drains fluids from your boat to help reduce the chance of damage due to freezing. Draining the fluids can help protect your engine and help prevent a crack in the engine which can be a costly repair.

Now that you know how to prepare your boat and lift for the upcoming winter months, you're ready to get started. As the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks, we want to help you protect your investment this winter. If you notice any damage to your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks this winter, contact Summerset Boat Lifts and we'll be out to repair your lift in a hurry!

Join Us for Supercat Fest 2018

One of our favorite annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks is back August 23-25, 2018! Supercat Fest is an annual celebration of the world's finest high-performance catamarans and more. The event is held at the Horny Toad Complex at Camden on the Lake, and coincides with the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout.


Supercat Fest Details


Headquartered at Camden on the Lake Resort Docks in Lake Ozark, Supercat Fest presents the greatest collection of exotic go-fast catamarans - and even a few v-bottom sport boats and high-performance center consoles - in the world! The owners bring the boats, so it's not a formal boat show, but that makes it that much more enjoyable for performance boat enthusiasts. It's just one big party for those looking to enjoy fast boats, live music and more. This year's Supercat Fest will feature some of your favorite events from year's past including the Friday night Bikini Contest and the Saturday night Lake of the Ozarks Shootout Auction. Watch the Shootout races on Saturday from the big screen at the pool!

The Dave Baker Band 


This year's Supercat Fest will feature music from the Dave Baker Band! They will take the stage at 8 pm on both Friday and Saturday night. The Dave Baker Band brings you all your favorite tunes from the 70's to current hits in one show. If Journey and the Zac Brown Band threw a party and invited Lady Gaga, AC/DC and Elton John - this would be the soundtrack. After many years of being the voice and front man for Mid-Missouri's most popular bands The Cherry Pistols and Five Turn Knot, lead singer Dave Baker has joined together some of the best local talent to bring you The Dave Baker Band. This is one show that will not disappoint!

With fast boats and great music, why wouldn't you want to join us for Supercat Fest 2018? This is one of Summerset Boat Lifts' favorite annual events! The best part is being able to host one of these awesome catamarans on our super-cool dock featuring a helicopter pad.


We hope you have a great time out on the water during all the upcoming boating events at the Lake - and remember, if you're in need of boat lift services at the Lake of the Ozarks, we're your guys!

3 Reasons You Need at Boat Lift at the Lake of the Ozarks

While you don't have to worry about saltwater and waves, our Lake does offer some challenges when it comes to protecting your boat. Purchasing a Lake of the Ozarks boat lift is the best way to protect your watercraft investment. Today's blog discusses several reasons that you should consider investing in a lift from your premier Lake of the Ozarks boat lift dealer!

1. To Reduce Your Boat Maintenance Costs. 


When you store your boat on a lift, it'll be easier to keep it maintained. If your boat sits in water for long periods of time, algae and other organisms in the water can build up on the bottom. Not only does this cause the need for extra cleaning, but it can cause maintenance issues, such as the need to repaint the bottom of your boat. By storing your boat on a lift, you can decrease maintenance and reduce the likelihood of it getting damaged from floating debris, which in turn reduces your repair costs.

2. To Protect Your Boat from Rough Waters. 


Especially during the summer boating season, the Lake of the Ozarks can experience some rough water conditions. Extra boat traffic, as well as summer storms, can cause rough waves that could cause your boat to hit your dock if its not up on a lift. Your boat lift will keep your boat in place as the waves splash up around it. This ensures your boat doesn't ram into your dock causing damage to your boat, the dock or both. It also prevents the rough waters from dislodging your boat and having it drift away.

3. To Prevent the Likelihood of Your Boat Sinking. 


You'd be surprised at the amount of boats that sink at the Lake of the Ozarks each year. Most boats that sink, do so at their dock. Whether it's a dead battery or a failed bilge pump, it doesn't take much for a boat to start taking on water and sinking. A boating accident is not required for a boat to sink. A Galva-Hoist boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks can give you the peace of mind that your boat is safe and secure at your dock.

Get your boat lift at Summerset Boat Lifts today! No matter the size or style of your boat, we've got a lift for you. The Galva-Hoist line of floating boat lifts provides great value and performance. Give us a call at 573-348-5073 to discuss your boat lift needs today!
