Convenient Free-Floating Boat Lift

HarborHoist is a self-contained, free-floating boat lift. The convenience of the lift comes from its easy assembly and installation, ability to work in shallow water (as little as 2 feet plus boat draft), and simplicity of access for both loading and unloading passengers with non-skid step pads.

Options are available for a 4 Tank 4,400-lb. lift, a 6 Tank 6,600-lb. lift, and an 8 Tank 8,800-lb. lift. The rugged lift includes marine-grade polyethylene tanks and an all-aluminum structure.

The fully integrated HarborHoist control comes with a standard 110V, with the option of a solar-powered control and 220V.

Powerful, Quiet Macerating Pumps

 When it comes to marine heads, dependable performance is critical. Stylish Tecma toilets from Thetford Marine utilize an advanced macerating pump, creating a reliable waste transfer system that ensures worry-free use for boat owners.

Powerful yet quiet, Tecma macerating pumps are the result of intensive technical research and the company's dedication to quality. High-speed cutting blades within the macerating chamber prevent any potentially harmful debris from reaching the pump. This, combined with the unit's high-volume discharge rate of more than 73 gallons per minute, eliminates the possibility of toilet clogs or blockages.

Tecma macerator pumps are available in 12V, 24V and 230V versions.
