Davit FAQs to Help you Select the Right Davit

What is your best davit system?
They are all great for their specific needs but if you have the space on your swim platform and you have the budget, then the Winch-on with electric winch and Pull-on are the strongest and most convenient.

Does your yacht have a shallow swim platform?
The Pull-on davits offer extensions that help for shallow depth swim platforms. Contact us for exact measurements. However, for very shallow swim platforms the Pivot-up, Sling davit or Quick Snap davit system work great as they allow the inflatable boat or dinghy to pivot up into a vertical position on its side.

Are you capable of lifting and pulling heavy weight?
If no, the Winch-on davit (manual or electric options) is best as it pivots and tips up to allows you to winch the inflatable boat, dinghy or PWC up onto the cradle of the davit system.

Which davit system is good for a PWC (Seadoo and other brands)?
The Winch-on davit system is great for PWCs because of their added size and weight so a more robust davit is needed and the Winch-on system offers a winch system also that makes it easy to bring up a heavy PWC to your swim platform with no effort at all.

Is your inflatable boat, dinghy or PWC under 350 lbs?
If you have a light inflatable boat or dinghy and are able to even davit your dinghy on its side, then we have several davit system options for you including the Pull-on, Pivot-up, Sling davit, or Quick Snap.

Is your inflatable boat, dinghy or PWC over 350 lbs?
If you have a heavy inflatable boat or dinghy, a RIB or PWV then the Winch-on davit (with manual or electric options) is your best option.

Do you want to keep your engine on your dinghy while stored?
See the Winch-on davit, Pull-on or Lift-up davits. The Pivot-up davit also works great when used in conjunction with the pivoting motor mount to allow for the engine to stay on. It also works great on shallow depth swim platforms.

Do you have a sailboat?
See the Lift-up, although the sling davit may also work subject to your aft area and what small craft you intended on carrying.

Do you need the davit to be removable?
All of our davits are removable except the Lift-up davit. Some davit systems even break down into small pieces allowing for easy storage in small lockers or below decks.

Do you want to carry a canoe, kayak or other water toy?
See the Dinghy Sling, Winch-on, Pull-on or Lift-up davit systems as they have great flexibility in what type of small craft they can carry.

I'm really confused as to what davit system I need, what do I do?
Email us or call us and we will help you figure that out because we are the davit system experts.
