Quite a few manufacturers provide a pontoon boat lift with canopy that not only protects the boat from being corroded by water but also prevent and damage from sun, rain and other environmental damages. An individual may consider lift models that include a canopy for additional protection for their prized pontoon boats.
Hewitt Narrow Pontoon
Hewitt has been building lifts for boats since 1972 and their experience allows them to manufacture one of the best products in the market. Their Narrow pontoon boat lift with canopy comes in three different models which are suitable for pontoon boats of different lengths and weights. These include a 20 feet model that can handle 2000 lbs., a 24 feet model that can carry 2400 lbs. and a 28 feet model that can lift boats with up to 3000 lbs. weight. The unique point of these lifts is that the beams are positioned between the pontoons. As they are equal to the length of the boat, it allows the weight to be distributed more proportionally making it easier to lift and lower boats. All the models come with a 120” canopy that provides protection to the boat from weather, sun and wind. The frame is constructed from aluminum which ensures that it is not corroded due to exposure to water. It includes a self-braking winch for operation that can either be installed in front or on side of the lift for easier operation.
Shore Master Pontoon Lifts
For a person shopping for a pontoon boat lift with canopy, Shore Master is another manufacturer worth considering. Their lifts come in three different models. The 4010 PTN can take a weight of up to 4000 lbs. while the 5500 PTN can support boats with 5500 lbs. capacity and they both can be installed with a canopy with size varying from 23 to 33 feet for protecting the boat. The 701168 PTN model from Shore Master is ideal for longer and heavier boats as it can accommodate boats with a weight of 7000 lbs. The lifts can be equipped with the Lift Boss or Lift Mate motors for operating the lifts easily using a switch, key or a remote. Both the lift and canopy frame is welded for increased durability and high-quality construction. The lifts include guide rails for docking the boat correctly and evenly distributing its weight across the lift.
Shore Mate Pontoon Lifts
Shore Mate manufactures pontoon boat lifts with canopy that free a person from the hassles of having to cover their boats for protection every time they use them. They offer the L45120V and the L4500H pontoon lifts each of which can accommodate boats with a maximum weight of 4500 lbs. and beam width of 10 feet. The former is a center lift that picks the boat from in between the pontoons and is ideal for shallow waters that have a depth greater than 8 feet while the latter is a cantilever style lift that picks the boat up from under the pontoons and is ideal for deep waters greater than 18 feet. Each of these can be pre-fitted with a canopy for added protection.
