The ShoreStation SSV40108HY FlexPower® hydraulic lift offers a sleek, clean look with a smooth, level-lift operation that provides an easy and fast way to dock and launch your boat. Powered by reliable and safe DC power that provides constant power source allowing for fast and effortless operation with the option to use AC power or your boat battery to keep the batteries charged.

One of the best features of the Flex Power® Hydraulic lifts have been designed with the entire hydraulic system positioned above the waterline and away from the dock for safe and easy access to your boat. This also provides a dependable, long lasting hydraulic system that does not fall victim to corrosion, leaking connections or failing seals.

Newly designed for 2021 the ShoreStation SS-V40108HY model features a new power unit with a more compact enclosure and new bi-directional reversing hydraulic pump. ShoreStation has also redesigned the lifting tube for the HY model, in that it now features a channel style lift tube with a removable and coated top plate to make maintenance access much easier than before. The top plate of the lift tube is also coated in order to provide you a place to step when entering and exiting the watercraft.

Hydraulic Boat Lift Priority One: Smart Design!

ShoreStation, a company that originated in the 50''s as Midwest Industries and specialized in Hydraulic designs for agriculture has one of the best understandings of hydraulics in the marine industry.

With any type of lift, keeping the moving parts out of the water is important and with a hydraulic, this means your pump, cylinder and all fitting components out of the water. In contrast to most competitors that utilize Cantilever hydraulic hoists, cantilever lifts have half of their mechanics beneath the waterline. ShoreStation focuses on keeping vital components out of the water and in a more controlled environment leads to much higher reliability and less overall maintenance. The illustration below shows the hydraulic cylinder (#1), the lift cable (#2) and the leveling cables (#3).


With the ShoreStation hydraulic hoist, you do not need to worry about your boat falling into the water due to a pump, hose or fitting failure. A unique safety feature on the FlexPower hoist is the pressure valve in the hydraulic system that stops the hoist from dropping (image above #4) your boat into the water, even if a hydraulic hose is cut. With all of the fluid hoses out of the water, seals and fittings provide a longer life with fewer maintenance issues.

These lifts feature large diameter stainless steel lift cables operating over large diameter sheaves with self lubricating GARMAX® bushings. The simple design ensures no cable to cable contact, eliminating the possibility of the cables binding and damaging each other.

The "V" shape cradle rack beam design of the platform allows for operation in shallow water and provides more positive centering. In the up position, there are no moving parts left in the water which minimizes corrosion. Boarding step and distinctive Drop Side allow for easy entry and exit from your boat.



This lift can be equipped for virtually any watercraft style and an array of lakefront conditions and offers a large variety of accessories it can be configured with to suit your needs. While choosing your hoist configuration, please review the following options that this unit can be configured with.

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.



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 - standard legs extensions include 20" legs for water depths up to 4-1/2 ft.

DEEP WATER LEGS - Longer adjustable leg extensions available for deeper water. Featuring a large foot pad for stability and locking pins for height adjustment these legs assure proper installation in variety of water depths from one to seven feet.



This hoist can be equipped with a variety of ShoreStation support hardware options found at However, we find that most SS-V40108HY models are typically equipped with the standard Ultra Bunk kit. Boat Support option includes complete hardware kits that are mounted to the moving cradle of the lift and are contact and support your boat.


STANDARD 12' ULTRA BUNKS - This configuration is well suited for single hull designs including flat bottom, round bottom, and deep-V hull designs. The Ultra Bunk includes two individual aluminum extrusion bunk rails covered with a non-abrasive vinyl. Ultra Bunks are maintenance free and do not trap lake sediment like older style carpeted lumber bunks.


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.

92" GLIDEPOLE CORNER POST GUIDE - Pivots on the corner of your lift to provide a visual aid when centering and landing your boat on the lift. Fully adjustable inward, outward, and vertically for desired protection.

FRONT POST UPRIGHT GUIDES - Keeps the boat''s bow centered when landing in high wind or waves. Mounts on the front cradle tube to provide full adjustability for a perfect fit.

SPRING-LOADED CENTERING GUIDE - The flex-action of these new guide posts makes loading your boat easier than ever. As the boat enters the lift they self-adjust to keep the boat centered for trouble-free loading every time.

FOUR POST FOAM CENTERING GUIDE - One of ShoreStation''s most traditional centering guides, these are mounted at the four corners of the lifting platform this centering device provides four soft uprights posts that assist with keeping your watercraft centered on the hoist.



Motor & Bow Stops are another optional style of parking aid that are designed to help with parking a watercraft. They help prevent "overshooting" the parking location. The Motor and Bow stops are not suitable for all watercraft styles.

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

BOW STOP –  Bring your boat to a stop in the perfect position every time. These padded stops will help prevent your boat from overrunning the lift.
