A pontoon or tritoon is perfect for a leisurely cruise down the lake. Some pontoons will get up and go, but for the most part, it's created to hang out with friends and family while putting around. The layout of the boat is the most open concept of them all, creating a great space for entertaining.

Wake Boat 

If your crew is all about the action, a wake boat is perfect. The tower on this kind of boat is designed to easily pull someone up out of the water, whether on a wakeboard, skiis, or wakeskate. There are a ton of awesome features on this type of boat and if watersports are your thing, this is the way to go!


A cruiser is a large boat that's perfect for entertaining your crew. These boats typically keep the speed at bay while you cruise up and down the lake. Shuttle your group to a dinner out on the water or drive around all day, taking in the breathtaking views. No matter how you choose to spend your time, a cruiser is a fun ride with tons of entertainment options!

Fishing Boat

If you're dreaming of days out on the lake and reeling in the big one, a fishing boat is right up your alley. This kind of boat features everything a fisher could want to make a day of fishing a breeze. From live wells to trolling motors to tackle storage, there are a ton of fantastic options on fishing boats these days.

Now that you know more about the various boat types on the market, you're ready to choose the one that works with your boating vision.

Here at Summerset Boat Lifts, we pride ourselves on offering the best boat lifts at the Lake of the Ozarks.

"We love our lift and lift remote from Summerset Boat Lifts! We highly recommend the products and can attest that the service is outstanding from start to finish! Get yourself the best boat lift with the best service at The Lake!" - Jill R., Facebook Review

"One of the best service companies of my life.  When we had a service need, they were to the dock almost before we could walk down!!   When we were ready to sell our lift they contracted to pick it up, sell it and forward a projected favorable amount to us.  In short order, we received a check in the mail for the upper-end amount quoted.  How refreshing!!" - Daniel S., Google Review

"Was looking for some brackets for a jet ski lift on a Saturday. Stopped by and they helped me out after nobody would. Great bunch of guys and very knowledgeable. Would recommend them!" - Kyle S., Facebook Review

"Got a call from my boat service center that when they picked up my boat for winter servicing the lift wouldn't go back up. I call Summerset and they came out promptly and fixed my lift. I had asked them what it would cost and they were able to give me an estimate with an assumption of the probable cause. The invoice came back exactly as estimated (no surprises). They emailed me the bill and I didn't have to make it down to the lake to supervise a solution. Love the easy button. Thanks, Summerset!" - Mark F., Google Review

"Brian and his entire Summerset team have been a pleasure to work with, including the purchase of my new boat lift, and also their continued superior service and assistance whenever I've had any questions. I met with many boat lift dealers to learn about their respective products, and Brian and the Summerset offering was the highest quality and professional service I found. I also wanted my lift customized with a walkway to be able to get up close to clean my boat and make it easier to board, and Brian worked with me to build and install a special lift that met my needs. I've had many other boat owners stop my slip to comment on how smart it was to have a custom lift and walkway built for my boat. I highly recommend Brian's team and the Summerset lifts and will definitely utilize their services and products again for any additional needs." - Jonathon E., Facebook Review

"I called Brian yesterday and told him about the problem I was having with my used lift. I was out today and when I came back my lift was up. With everything that is going on in our world today this company steps up and gets it done.Thanks again Brian and Angie you really make me feel like we are family a true Testament to a wonderful business." - William M., Facebook Review

"Had a couple minor issues the last couple months with my lift and I texted Phil both times and he responded immediately as usual and sent his team out and did the necessary repairs and called me both times to follow up. One of the best service organizations at Lake of the Ozarks." - Ken R., Google Review
