The CraftLander 45120 Tritoon Boat Lift is a 4500 lb capacity, 120" wide freestanding vertical tritoon lift. This unit features the option for a Tritoon Saddle Kit and is available with 10', 12', or 15' vinyl and aluminum hull bunk length options. This configuration allows for supporting each pontoon providing stability and safety. The key to this kit is the low profile saddle bracket which perfectly aligns the bunks to support a toon. These bunks are well suited for tritoons as long as all three toons are the same size. Once aligned, the system provides a perfect parking spot for your boat keeping it close to the cradle which is great for shallow water.
If your center toon is taller than the outside toons, the standard saddle kit will not work. We have a couple options for tritoons with larger center toon diameters. If the center toon is slightly larger than the outside toons, we then will use the standard saddle kit for a pontoon along with a set of standard bunk brackets for the center toon which allows the bunks to be adjusted independently. In some cases where the center toon is much larger, we use three sets of the standard bunk brackets to make sure the boat will sit high enough above the cradle. These take a little more work to set up, but they still work well.
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.

BOAT SUPPORT OPTIONS
The following options are designed for specifically for tritoons. Each is mounted to the moving cradle of the lift and are the contact and support your boat.
Tritoon Saddle Kit with Vinyl Hull Bunks - The saddle kit utilizes a triple set of vinyl and aluminum hull bunks (10's, 12's or 15's) and lifts from beneath the toons of the pontoon. This is how we set them up if all 3 toons are the same size. They are easy to align and support the toon very nicely. This kit includes three sets of the vinyl & aluminum Bunks and are maintenance free and do not trap lake sediment like older style carpeted lumber bunks. The bracket for the saddle kit is specially designed to fit the I-beam cradle and mount one end of two sets of bunks to each bracket assembly. They are not too difficult to install and they are easy to adjust for your pontoon.
Custom Tritoon Triple Hull Bunk Set-Up - When the center toon is a slightly larger than the outside toons, we can use the saddle kit brackets for the outside toons and a standard bunk bracket set for the center toon. This allows us to customize where the bunks support the center toon. If the center toon is significantly larger, we can use three sets of the standard bunk brackets which give you more room between the cradle of the lift and the toons and allows us to customize the bunks for all three toons. This is the way we did all the bunks before the saddle kit was available. If you are unsure, please do not hesitate to reach out and we can discuss further.
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.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.
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 8.5 feet.
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 guides 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.
