HydroHoist Wins Navy Contract

HydroHoist Boat Lifts received a contract from the U.S. Navy to provide HarborHoist boatlifts to protect Navy security and patrol boats.

The contracts for installations include ports in Virginia, New Jersey, Connecticut and New Hampshire, to be completed in April.

HydroHoist was selected through a vetting process based on HydroHoist’s history and the HarborHoist’s saltwater friendly design. The selection process also factored in HydroHoist’s ISO-9001 certification, full-time engineering staff and customer service department.

JB Robison Jr., HydroHoist inside sales manager, coordinated the contract with the Navy and was the point of contact throughout the process.

“HydroHoist’s quality manufacturing process, strong aluminum saltwater frame, polyethylene tanks and push button control are some of the HarborHoist attributes that set us apart. Ultimately, the affordability of the HarborHoist, ease of operation, and low maintenance requirements confirmed the U.S. Navy’s decision to choose HydroHoist,” Robinson said.

The HarborHoist™ boatlift has a level-lifting frame constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum. The unit can be tied to the dock by using ropes or through a conventional mooring system. The hoist is compatible with fixed or floating docks and works in U-shaped, double-wide, L-shaped and square docks. The hull supports can be configured for nearly all boat types, including inboard wake, pontoon and tritoon boats.
