Craftlander lifts affordable and reliable with many great features that you may pay more for in higher end lifts. They have a heavy-duty aluminum frame with 100% stainless steel mounting hardware to ensure a long life in the water. The all-aluminum frame makes them light weight for easy removal in the winter for people in the northern states. The winch used by Craftlander makes them easier to crank than lifts of comparable size made by other manufacturers. Assembly is easy, even the novice, with all shipments coming with a full direction book and only requiring a few simple tools to put them together.
With a 120 inside opening beam it is best for boats that are up to 9 wide. These lifts are freestanding and do not require any type of anchoring. The lifts are designed to be placed along side of a dock or seawall.
Our lifts utilize an I-beam platform design for strength and reliability, but they are also designed for lower water application and allows the cradle to drop down into the lower framework. This allows our lifts to work as well as V-rack boat lift designs in shallow water while being more light weight.
The Craftlander Very high lift is designed for deep water, water with tidal changes, and water with large waves. The 84″ of cradle travel ensures your boat will stay high and dry.

Boat lift Options
This Craftlander lift can be setup to work with almost any boat on any lake, river, or shore. Below you will find out what options are available for this lift and more information about them
Boat Supports- There are many options that will fit this Craftlander lift for your boat. Each option comes with everything needed for mounting including hardware and directions
Standard 12′ Bunks- These 100% aluminum and poly bunks will last a life time with no parts that can weather. They are great for shallow V boats, flat bottoms, and other small run-abouts. They provide 6″ of lift off the bottom of the lift frame to keep your boat elevated off of the frame.
Ski 12′ Bunks- These 100% aluminum and poly bunks will last a life time with no parts that can weather. The ski bunks raise the bottom of the boat 12″ off the bottom of the frame. They are great for ski boats and deep v boats. The added room off the frame is great for ski boat fins and prop shafts.
Pontoon Saddle Kit- The best way to put your pontoon on a lift is by supporting it by the toons. The pontoon saddle kit does just this. This kit comes with 4 12′ vinyl bunks and mounting hardware to create 2 saddles for your pontoons. This is far better than using wood to support the boat by the frame as the saddle kit lifts the boat like it floats and is designed to be supported.
Tritoon Saddle Kit- The best way to put your tritoon on a lift is by supporting it by the toons. The tritoon saddle kit does just this. This kit comes with 6 12′ vinyl bunks and mounting hardware to create 3 saddles for your toons. Some Tritoons have a dropped center toon. If so please let us know and we will send a modified kit.
Boat Protection-While driving your boat into your lift you may want some added protection from the lift frame to keep from possibly scratching your boat. Craftlander has 3 options to help guide you in your lift the right way every time.
Carpeted Guide-Ons- The original way to keep you coming into your lift straight is the carpeted guide on. This kit comes with 2 12′ carpeted wrapped beams that attach to adjustable height brackets to work for almost any boat. Carpeted guides can hold sand in their fabric and may scratch decals, so if you have decals poly or foam guides are recommended.
Poly Guide-Ons- The best way to guide your boat, and especially your pontoon in is with the poly guide ons. These are the same bunks that support your boat with a welded mounting frame. They are 12′ long and will not hold any debris in them like carpeted guide ons can.
Foam Guide-Ons- The foam guide on is great for the budget watcher out there that still wants to guide their boat in. The four post mount will help keep you off the uprights and keep you centered in the lift.
Extension Legs- All Craftlander lifts come with 4 adjustable height legs. This way if you’re water is very shallow you can have the lift setting on the lake bed or if it is very deep you can elevate the lift to ensure you have enough lift to raise your boat out of the water.
54″ Legs- These legs are great when you need just a little more leg length than the standard 30″ Legs. They can be adjusted up to 42″ Long. With this leg length you can use these legs in water up to 6′ deep and still receive proper lift from the cradle.
Deep Water 72″ Legs- These legs are great for deep water or mucky installs where the legs may sink. They provide up to 58″ of length from foot to frame and can be used in water up to 7.5′ deep. These legs can be purchased as a rear pair only or all four legs depending on your needs.
