Please Select the style of bunks for your Watercraft  at the Above options.

This page allows you to custom build a vertical Craftlander pontoon lift. You will choose the capacity, bunk type, leg length and an optional loading guide. Craftlander offers a heavy duty bolt-together design with aluminum and stainless steel construction that provides superior environmental endurance and eliminates the need for aluminum welds while adding to the strength and stability of the lift.

CraftLander lifts are easier to crank than most lifts on the market today due to their patented "Positive Drive Winch" that is chain driven with roller bearings. In contrast to many other lift brands that install generic third party winches, CraftLander is one of very few manufacturers that custom design their vertical lift winch assemblies for their hoists.

This lift has been designed to be used in low and fluctuating water levels. The 64" lift height gives you a lot of cradle travel to work with and keeps you from having to move the lift to shallow or deeper water. The large tapered pads or feet on this unit allow it to be moved across many different surfaces and lake bottoms without snagging or digging in. This is very helpful for seasonal installation and removal.



This CraftLander Hoist can be equipped for virtually any watercraft style and a spectrum of lakefront conditions. With a wide variety of equipment accessories the unit can be configured to suit your needs. While choosing your hoist configuration, please review the following options that this unit can be configured with. These options are selected above and allow you to configure the new hoist to your needs.

This section provides description to the various options that you can have this hoist equipped with. These options are selected above the "Add to Cart" button, which allow you to build the configuration that you want.


    EXTENSION LEG OPTIONS: Freestanding Lifts such as this model utilize four, independently adjustable legs which are inserted into the corner columns of the hoist. When installed they allow you to adjust the height of the lift at each of the corners so that you can achieve a level plane across the hoist. Attached to each leg is a large base pad that will rest on the lake bottom.

    STANDARD LEG - the standard leg option includes 54" legs (overall length) that provide 42" of usable height. The leg uses a large foot pad for stability and hitch pins for height adjustment. This telescoping design allows for proper installation in a variety of water depths up to 6-1/2 feet.

    DEEP WATER LEGS - the longer adjustable 72" leg extensions provide 58" of usable height. These are used for deeper water and are a much heavier duty extrusion. The leg uses a large foot pad for stability and hitch pins for height adjustment. This telescoping design allows for proper installation in a variety of water depths up to 8 feet.


    PONTOON SUPPORT OPTIONS: This hoist can be equipped with a few support hardware options. The following options are designed for pontoon boats. Boat Support options include complete hardware kits that are mounted to the moving cradle of the lift.

    PONTOON RACK – This configuration is typically used on Pontoons and in some cases with Tritoon boat designs. One of the most traditional systems used, the pontoon rack includes four vertical cradle mounted bracket assemblies. Once installed lumber boards are attached to the bracket assemblies which then act as a support surface your boat's under-deck. Pontoon rack systems such as this have been widely used for a number of years due to the basic design and user friendliness.

    DUAL 10' or 12' VINYL/ALUMINUM BUNKS - This configuration is well suited for Pontoon and some cathedral hull designs. The Dual Vinyl Aluminum Bunk kit includes two sets of aluminum extrusions bunk rails covered with a non-abrasive vinyl. The Vinyl/Aluminum Bunks are maintenance free and do not trap lake sediment like older style carpeted lumber bunks. When installed each set of bunks are located to the exterior of the cradle and are designed to support the underside of toons.

    TRITOON VINYL/ALUMINUM TRIPLE BUNK KIT - This configuration is well suited for Tritoons. This kit includes two outside mounted 12' bunk sets and a center mounted 10' bunk support for support of the center toon. The Vinyl/Aluminum bunks are maintenance free and do not trap lake sediment like older style carpeted lumber bunks. When installed this system allows for the support of three toons.


    LOADING GUIDE OPTIONS: Loading guides are optional accessories that can be added to your hoist at any time. They are highly recommended for those in rough and windy areas or for inexperienced drivers. They are designed to assist with leaving and parking your boat, by providing a "guide" aid to keep you centrally located within the hoist frame.

    POLY AND ALUMINUM PONTOON/TRITOON GUIDES - These are new to our 2016 Craftlander product line and are a guide designed to work specifically with pontoons and tritoons. This kit uses  custom angled aluminum mounting hardware and a vinyl and aluminum side bunk. The kit uses all aluminum and poly with no wood or carpet significantly reducing maintenance over time. 

    FULL LENGTH CARPETED SIDE GUIDES - Carpeted loading/centering guides consists of four heavy duty aluminum upright brackets that attach to the I-Beam of the hoist, of which support a carpeted lumber rails with steel reinforcement backer plates that span the full length of the hoist on both interior sides. The carpeted rails act as a centering guide for positioning on the hoist safely. This guide option is not recommended for watercrafts with side hull decals. This guide if it comes in contact with decal stickers will cause damage to the decal.


    MOTOR STOP OPTIONS: Motor Stops are another optional style of parking aid that are designed to help with parking a watercraft. Motor Stops help prevent "overshooting" the parking location. The Motor stop are not suitable for Wake and Ski Style watercrafts with drive shaft prop and rudders

    MOTOR STOP - Mounted to the stern end rack beam and assists with stopping your watercraft and prevents your boat from overrunning the lift.
