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.

It is most definately OK for you to arrange for anyone interested to have a look at the Custom Boat Loader "Masterpiece of Engineering" anytime. All they have to do is give us a phone call first up to make sure that we are home. I may even be able to meet them in Townsville somewhere if I am planning a trip into town around a convenient time for both parties. I know that your Boat Loader generates a lot of interest from people who see it sitting on top of our Cruiser and we have handed out quite a few of your brochures and cards to people on your behalf. I hope that this has been fruitful to sales for you. We have even had enjoyable discussions with other happy Custom Boat Loader owners, the most recent one with a couple in Yungaburra who have recently come back from a trip up in the gulf.

Di and Cameron at Custom Boat Loaders have been extremely professional throughout our dealings. Di organised all the admin side of the transaction and the logistics of getting our boat loader from Perth to Melbourne. Cameron provided great practical support over the phone during the home installation of the loader to our 100 Series LC. I probably phoned him ten times during fitment to clarify aspects of the installation and he always responded in a helpful and understanding manner. We recently returned from Karumba after our annual fishing holiday and I can confirm that the Custom Boat Loader performed marvelously. It was simple to use and we are confident it will serve us well for many years to come. Congratulations must go to the management and staff at Custom Boat Loaders for designing and producing such a great product and for the outstanding support they provide to their customers. My only advice to prospective buyers would be to stretch the budget a little further and buy the electric motor model. My loader is 14.4 volt hand drill operated and although it works perfectly, I think the upmarket model with the built in motor would be an advantage worth the extra investment. In summary..... great product and outstanding customer service.

We have a Makocraft 3.8m v bottom which has a beam of 1.70m. We use a Custom Boat Loader from Perth [very easy to use and an excellent company to deal with] and I would suggest you contact them as they had no qualms about a 1.70m beam on my LC100.
