HydroHoist Lands U.S. Navy Contract

Published: Tuesday, May 28, 2019

HydroHoist is proud to announce the receipt of orders from the U.S. Navy to provide HarborHoist boat lifts to protect Navy security and patrol boats.

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

HydroHoist was selected through a strong vetting process based on the Navy’s confidence in HydroHoist’s history and the HarborHoist’s rugged design, making it both fresh and saltwater friendly. The selection process factored in HydroHoist Boat Lifts position as the industry leader in boat lift manufacturing, 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.

“Our regional Navy contact worked with us through the pre-award vetting process,” said Robison.

“HydroHoist’s quality manufacturing process, strong aluminum 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.”

The HarborHoist™ boat lift has a level-lifting frame constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum. It is the most versatile boat lift in the HydroHoist family – perfect for fresh and saltwater. The unit can be tied to the dock by simply 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.

For information and pricing on the HarborHoist boat lift for retail, security, or military use, please contact JB Robison Jr., HydroHoist Inside Sales Manager, online at or directly at (918) 341-6811 or [email protected].
