Tilt-Up PWC Rails
Jet skis, Waverunners, SeaDoos and many other brands are enjoying immense popularity with houseboat and yacht owners around the world. They are referred to as "Personal Water Craft" or PWC's. Everyone needs an easy way to store them on their houseboats, yachts, and cruisers! That's where we come in.
Our Tilt-Up PWC Rails are designed for aluminum houseboats, pontoon boast, docks, and marina piers. If you have a cruiser, yacht, or a boat with a bolted-on swim platform, click here to read about our Cross-Deck loading options.
Our Tilt-Up Rails are easy to install, and are fully adjustable to any angle so your PWC will always be out of the water, clean, and ready to launch with the push of a button!
Why are so many existing houseboat owners getting our Rails?
We originally thought our primary market would be older boats that had the old-style davit winches and slings which are dangerous and time consuming. But a significant number of houseboats built in the last few years can't handle the length of today's 3-seater PWC’s. They are too long for the factory rails so they drag in the water where the thruster and steering linkage gets contaminated. Our Rails mount completely on the swim platform at a relatively flat angle so both the Rails and your PWC are completely out of the water. As a bonus, they don’t encroach up into the rear-deck porch, and they tilt up out of the way when not in use. They can be mounted over the ladder or beside the slide. The winch is self-contained in the mounting frame. With all these things in mind, lots of people are replacing their factory ramps. We love this of course, and consider it a great testimony about our design and quality.
Reclaim your swim platform!
The tilt-up capability is the most popular feature. When your PWC is unloaded, the Rails tilt up and out of the way so you have your entire swim platform available for swimming, playing, and fishing. You can mount your Rails right next to your slide. You can even mount it over your ladder because it tilts up out of the way.
Tilting the Rails up also makes it easier to maneuver your houseboat around the marina or in small coves since there is no structure extending beyond your swim platform. For the same reason, you can now bring your fishing boat, ski boat, wake-board boat, or runabout up along the back of your swim platform for loading and unloading.
