Are you after a Side Boat Loader to carry your cartopper boat?

BoatHoist are now the only supplier of electric Side Boat Loaders in Australia. We have been manufacturing our electric Side Boat Loader since 2012 and have over 1500 happy boat loader customers out on the road enjoying the benefits of our award winning electric boat loader. BoatHoist is an Australian owned family company and all our boat loaders are manufactured right here on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

The Benefits of our Side Boat Loader.

  1. Robust all aluminum construction means the boat loader only weighs 35kg but with an industry leading loading capacity of 130kg this allows you to maximize your payload.
  2. The side loader is super safe as the boat can’t slip or fall at any stage during the loading or unloading operation. The load is spread between the vehicle roof racks and through the side arms onto the ground. This reduces the force on the roof of the vehicle unlike rear loaders that concentrate all the load on the back of your vehicle.
  3. You can unload your rooftop boat from either side of the vehicle, even when the caravan is still hitched to your car. A great option for those overnight stops next to the water.
  4. Wireless remote control 12volt electric winch running off the Anderson plug on your vehicle puts you on the same side as the boat during the loading operation. A much safer and easier option than been stuck on the wrong side with a drill in your hand.

The BoatHoist electric side boat loader is designed to bolt directly to your heavy-duty roof racks, flat racks or cargo racks and will fit all vehicle types. We even have a unique design option for Dual Cab Utes that overcomes the problem of movement between the vehicle cab and the canopy. The Flexi-mount system allows you to attach onto two roof racks on the canopy and also attach to a third roof rack mounted to the cab of your Ute. The Flexi-mount absorbs the movement between the cab and the canopy while still transferring weight into the third roof rack on the cab. This effectively increases the load carrying capacity by 50kg and allows the boat to sit flush with the rear of the canopy. Aluminium canopy’s, builders racks on the tub of the Ute, or even camper trailers fitted with a load carrying frame. All these options can be fitted with a BoatHoist electric side boat loader.

The BoatHoist boat loader is supplied as a kit and can be delivered to your home in all Australian States. It is designed to be fitted by the average home handman in about 4 hours or we offer a fitting service at our Coolum Beach workshop.

BoatHoist also manufacture our own robust aluminum folding boat trailer and an outboard motor trolley that can be loaded into the back of your vehicle or mounted on the A-frame of your caravan.
