HydroHoist Unveils The Newest PWC Docking Platform In Their Fleet - HydroPort Epic

Leading Manufacturer of Marine Equipment Launches their Most Advanced PWC Platform Yet

Published: Wednesday, March 25, 2020

HydroHoist Boat Lifts, leading manufacturer of marine equipment, recently announced the release of their latest design—and the most versatile personal watercraft (PWC) docking platform available—the HydroPort® Epic.

For the ultimate in convenience and to improve the safety of those boarding the vessel, the Epic PWC platform was designed with a wider walkway and built-in anti-slip surface for easier access around the craft. The additional walkway footprint also allows operators to safely clean and cover their PWC after use without having to balance on smaller walkways.

For simple maintenance, the HydroPort Epic is equipped with enhanced drainage to remove any debris and water from the platform. A redesigned rear entry allows for a smoother loading and launching process. Keeping current customers in mind, this PWC platform can connect with the existing HydroPort Extreme model so that individuals and marinas can continue to grow their HydroPort fleet.

“HydroHoist is committed to supporting innovation in the boating industry,” said Mick Webber, CEO, HydroHoist, LLC. “We continuously keep up with the latest trends in both boat and PWC development. As these products continue to get larger, HydroHoist is growing, enhancing, and redesigning our product lines to accommodate the larger capacities while maintaining our core quality, craftsmanship, and performance that we build into every product.”

For maximum utility, the HydroPort Epic includes six sets of UV protected wheels, with the ability to lift 2,000-pounds. The Epic model is available in blue, gray, and tan, and weighs 430 pounds. The product will be available through both HydroHoist and ShoreMaster distribution channels. You can view the HydroPort Epic at several 2020 boat shows around the nation, too.
