Sunstream’s ruggedized boat lifts save government agencies a tremendous amount of time and money by modernizing boat protection and maintenance practices. The Return on Investment is realized quickly by increasing the life of the asset, saving hard costs on fuel burn and by optimizing the workforce.

Government FloatLiftSimply tie the FloatLift™ to most places you can tie your boat: slips, side-ties or even a mooring buoy. The DC system can be charged using either the solar or AC powered options. The standard rear guides and remote control make docking incredibly easy.

The FloatLift™ is designed for fresh or salt water, with an aluminum frame, stainless steel hardware, marine grade hydraulic cylinders with stainless shafts, and marine grade hoses. The rubber-capped SuperBunks™ are not only durable, but provide the ultimate in cushioned support for your hull.
