What Are Jet Ski Lifts?

A jet ski lift raises and stores your jet ski out of the water to protect it from damage. While cleats and mooring lines are great when your watercraft is in use, you need something for when it’s time to exit the water. Should a storm roll in, you don’t want your personal watercraft (PWC) crashing into your dock or seawall. You can also build a boat house around your lifters for further protection.

Jet skis go by many names, such as personal watercraft (PWC), sea-doos, wave runners, and water scooters. Thus, jet ski lifts also go by the names PWC lifts and PWC jet ski lifts.

But don’t let the name fool you. You can use a jet ski lift for other water vessels, too, like:

  • Canoes
  • Jet boats
  • Kayaks
  • Small skiffs

For larger boats and pontoons, specialized boat lifts are used due to the increased size and weight.

Permitting and Installation Considerations

Before installation, check local guidelines for permits related to decks, docks, and lifts. Consulting with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) or similar local government bodies can provide clarity and ensure compliance, streamlining your lift installation process.
