Cruising

The Lake of the Ozarks was voted the #1 Recreational Lake in the Country for a reason! The majority of people who vacation here year after year either bring a boat with them or rent one while they're here. Whether you're here with friends or here with family, boating is a great activity for everyone to enjoy.


Watersports

If you're feeling adventurous, turn your day of boating into a day of tubing, skiing or wakeboarding. Nothing's better than feeling the wind and the water on your face as you fly behind the boat on a hot summer day! Watersports offer fun for people of all ages; you can also have a great time just watching someone being pulled behind the boat.


Attend Events

The Lake area has something going on just about every weekend throughout the summer months. From live music at your favorite waterfront bars to fireworks over the water for the holidays, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Check out www.FunLake.com for details on upcoming events on the water!


Dining

There's no shortage of waterfront dining options at the Lake of the Ozarks. From Bagnell Dam out to the Niangua arm, you'll find a variety of different cuisines to enjoy for lunch or dinner while you're out on the water for the day or just out for an evening cruise.

New Boat Lift Options

 If you own a boat, you know how important it is to keep it protected all your long! As the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks, we pride ourselves on building the toughest boat lifts to keep your investment safe. Check out a few of the new boat lifts at the Lake of the Ozarks we have available. 

6,500 lbs. Capacity:

The 6,500 lb lift is an ideal capacity for almost every tritoon on Lake of the Ozarks. The mechanism and structure of the lift are well suited for the rough waters that our lake has to offer. From a 24 foot deck boat to a 27 foot tritoon with a 300hp outboard, give serious consideration to our 6,500lb boat lift!


8,000 lbs. Capacity:

Our 8,000 lb boat lifts have become very popular as the size of modern tritoons with different engine configurations have demanded a bit more capacity. 26 to 28’ bow riders remain a popular boating choice on Lake of the Ozarks as well.


10,000 lbs. Capacity:

The 10,000 lb boat lift utilizes the same structure and mechanism as the 8,000, making this lift a very good price point. More bang for your buck, and the opportunity to grow into a bigger boat utilizing the same lift later on.


12,000 lbs. Capacity:

The 12,000 lb lift is a Heavy-Duty 6-arm mechanism designed for the rough waters at Lake of the Ozarks. You can choose to back-in over the deepest dropping lift on the market, knowing you have peace of mind that you have prop-turning clearances.

14,000 lbs. Capacity:

The 14,000 lb lift is built on the foundation of the 12,000… by simply increasing the length of tank capacity rises to handle 32 to 34’ boats and can also be the correct choice to handle the extra weight of mechanism, structure and walkways in a wide-well situation.


17,000 lbs. Capacity:

The 17,000 lb lift caps off the trio of 6-arm mechanisms available. Capable of lifting many of the 34 and 35 foot day cruisers, the 17,000lb lift is again “best in class”. In the “go fast” line of boats, the 17,000lb lift handles many 42’s with triples.


20,000 lbs. Capacity:

The 20,000 lb lift is an 8-arm mechanism ideally suited for many 37 to 41 foot day cruisers. One of the only brands on the market to fit in a 12’ slip, they work just as nicely in wider slips too.


24,000 lbs. Capacity:

The 24,000 lb lift is available in 8-arm and 10-arm mechanisms. A four-tank system, this lift offers a superb weight to width ratio of stability for your boat! Don’t float your boat! Put it on a new lift from Summerset Boat Lifts today!


Custom Boat Lift:

Built custom just for you! Your exquisite taste demands the best in boat lifts, visit us at Summerset Boat Lifts!

Here at Summerset Boat Lifts, we know it's vital to keep your lift up out of the water to extend the life of your vessel. Keep your boat in mint condition when you store it on a boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks. You've learned about our new boat lifts above, but we also have used lifts available. Stop by our location in Camdenton, MO, or give us a call to inquire about our current used inventory.

Lift Your PWC With Confidence!

Boating season is here and that means your PWC is about to see a lot of waves! While getting it out to zip around the water and catch waves is a blast, it's important that it's being protected while it's at your dock, as well. As the best boat lifts at the Lake of the Ozarks, we also pride ourselves on offering top-of-the-line PWC lifts at the Lake of the Ozarks! Check out the PWC lift options we have available:

Single PWC Lift

The flagship of our PWC line, the poly tank front-mount unit is quite capable of withstanding any water conditions. The design of the frame gives a smooth modern look and superior strength. The flotation tanks are some of the largest in the industry and this means you WILL have dry feet when you want to maintain or cover your craft, GUARANTEED.


PermaPort PWC Lift

The PermaPort floating platform is an alternative in the PWC storage market. The PermaPort has a self-centering entry roller for easy drive-on and five additional keel rollers to make the push off effortless. A key feature is the expanded poly foam fill that gives positive floatation should the shell become compromised – other brands are simply “filled with air” and will “fill with water” when punctured… The front-mount bracket has been upgraded to be Lake of the Ozarks friendly as well.


Side Mount PWC Lift

The side-mount mechanical lift is available for the homeowner with property line issues. It’s a space-saver in that the footprint on the dock is only 5 1/2 feet instead of 11 feet.


Double PWC Lift

The Double-Place Personal Water Craft lift is an extension of our popular single place design. For considerable price saving over purchasing two single’s, the double is available in several configurations. The width of the frame can be fit to most popular slip widths including 10, 11, 12 & 14’. The frame is also ideal for the discriminating boater that wants to fully deck the unit.

What are you waiting for? Protect your PWC at the Lake of the Ozarks by storing it up on a lift. Whether you're after a drive on, a single lift, or a platform double lift, we have all of your PWC lift needs covered! Contact Summerset Boat Lifts today to order your lift so you can get back to catching waves this spring!

Perks of a Storing Your Boat on a Lift

Boating is a popular activity at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you've got a boat and enjoy spending time out on the water, a boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks is the way to go! If you need some convincing, Summerset Boat Lifts is here to showcase a few of the reasons why you should store your boat up on a lift this season!

1) 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 it's 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.


2) To Get on the Water FASTER.

When your boat is stored on your dock, you can use it with ease. You don't have to coordinate a trip to the boat ramp to put the boat in or wait for help to arrive to launch your boat -- you can take it out on a whim anytime you'd like with the flip of a switch to lower your boat into the water! It makes it convenient to use your boat and you'll find yourself getting out the water more often than ever before!


3) 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.


4) To Prevent the Likelihood of Your Boat Sinking. 

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 Duratek 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.

Now that you know some of the perks of storing your boat on a lift, you're ready to invest in your boat and purchase a boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks. Contact the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks to lift your dreams!
