About the Custom Boat Loader

The Custom Boat Loader allows one person to safely and easily load and unload an aluminium dinghy from their 4WD roof using a cordless drill or fully wireless remote controlled version, in about 2 minutes! We also make a heavy duty version to suit the larger boats on the bigger vehicles. With a Custom Boat Loader you can place the boat in the water if you can get to it!

Step By Step

Step by Step

How the Custom Boat Loader operates.

  • The vehicle reverses to the stern of the dinghy.
  • The four lifting ropes are pulled through the guides on the Custom boat loader and secured to four anchor points on the boat.
  • A fulcrum plate fits between the stern of the dinghy and the tow-bar of the vehicle.
  • Once in position the winch is activated, pulling the boat up and off the ground. The worm drive winch gives full control when loading and unloading – you can stop at any time & the winch will hold the boat at any stage, automatically.
  • Once over the vertical, the boat pivots on the rear bar of the rack, & then runs easily forward until the bow is resting on the front edge of the rack.
  • The winch continues to pull on the four ropes until tension is sufficient to secure the boat onto the Custom boat loader & locked for transport, although tie down straps are recommended for extra safety over rough roads & anchor points are provided on the loader for this purpose.

A few kind words.

Have returned home safely from Tasmania after a fantastic holiday. Apart from the initial hitch caused by my auxiliary battery being flat, the boat loader worked magnificently. It attracted quite a bit of interest at Miena and a number of locals were keen to see it in operation and to hear about how it does all the work for you. A sensational product - very much appreciated - together with your service in meeting my needs in such a tight time frame.

Many thanks for the Boat Loader - we should have ordered it last year, and I may have saved myself a shoulder operation!

Boat loader arrived and all parts O.K. We have assembled and tested the loader and congratulations on an excellent designed mechanism. It works perfectly and we will promote the loader to all, so once again thank you for a great invention.
