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.

We fitted the loader and everything is working great. We went camping for a week, and had no dramas at all. We are extremely happy with it. It’s one of the best purchases we have ever made, we would absolutely highly recommend it to any one that’s in the market for one. You are all great to deal with during the purchase and even after the purchase, setting up etc. Lovely people and extremely highly regarded. Thanks so very much.

Just wanted to send you an email as a testimonial of our experiences with your company Custom Boat Loaders.

I purchased my loader from you back in 2010 and have loved the unit ever since. I upgraded my boat and your support and advise re changes required to the gear box and how to replace it was fantastic. Living in Adelaide I needed to be able to do the change myself and your input and support through this process was magic. Recently I changed my vehicle and you could not have been more helpful regarding information, support and the offer for a local aluminium fabricator to be able to contact you regarding the best way to support the loader through an existing fibreglass canopy.

Selling a product is one thing, back up service is another and it is in this area you again excel.

As a user of your product and almost more importantly as a customer requiring follow up support you and your company have been exceptional and I highly recommend Custom Boat Loaders to everyone that reads this not just for the quality and performance of the boat loader but also for the fantastic after sales service provided even after 10 years from the date of purchase.

Well done Cameron, to you and Janine thank you for how you have treated me as a customer.

I will always promote your company whenever the opportunity arises.

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.
