Highest Quality Golden Boat Lifts Now Available In Michigan

Published: Friday, February 14, 2020

Waters Edge Dock & Hoist is pleased and excited to announce a very special partnership with Golden Boat Lifts. The 2020 vision is to bring the best of the best to Michigan and its Great Lakes!

For more than a decade, Waters Edge, headed up by brothers Jerry and Garrick Wilson, have been servicing Michigan’s waterfront customers. They are known for their high quality equipment and exceptional customer service, supporting the notion that the product you buy is only as good as the company installing and servicing it.
"We were born and raised in a family of entrepreneurs," stated Owner Jerry Wilson. "Completing a job and taking great pride in the work we do, it's in our blood."

It was a no brainer for the Wilson brothers to team up with Bill Golden, a 40-year veteran of the boat lift industry. Bill's experience and quality approach has earned him the respect and confidence of customers around the globe. Waters Edge and Golden both saw a need for a partner company that had a commitment and attention to detail in design, craftsmanship, safety, and service.

"When we accept someone into the Golden family, we are looking for experience,” explained Bill. “I don't want to bring a contractor in[to the family] who doesn't have the experience to deliver the best installation of our product. We canvas the world to find the best contractors because our boat lifts, quite frankly, are only as good as the install. We found what we are looking for with Waters Edge.”

There's no doubt Golden Lifts, which are made for heavy ocean vessels experiencing hurricanes, high wave action, and highly corrosive salt water, will be a perfect fit for large vessels in the Great Lakes region.

The 2020 vision seen by both companies blends perfectly: To bring the highest quality product, and the most robust, overbuilt boat lift in the industry to Michigan; and to combine that with a team committed to exceptional installation and customer service.
