About Our Company

Our owners have over 50 years combined experience in servicing the marine industry. In 1986 we started a company called "The Hoist Shop" to sell boat lifts to the public. We incorporated in August of 1987 and later changed the name to Aluminum Boat Cradles Inc. We built the shop/office where we are located in 1989. We have enlarged the property to about 4 acres so we can now offer marine lumber also. We have several long time employees (several 10+ years and one 25+ years).

Our experience around docks and boats led us to design and develop a way to and to support the boats from the bottom as if they were on a boat trailer (total support). Our Aluminum Boat Cradles are designed to protect your investment in your boat. Made out of T-6 Aluminum Alloy Construction and M.I.G. Welded, it's an investment that will protect your boat from expensive hull repairs and permanent damage to your boats performance. Aluminum Boat Cradles come in three standard widths for V-Hull,In Board and Pontoon Boats and can handle beam widths up to 108". Cradles can be shipped worldwide.

We take pride in our products; we want each and every one of them to be a well built, dependable product that will be used for many years. We take pride that our product is unique and not a copy of another manufacturer.
