The 13,000 lb. Aluminum Pontoon Boat Cradle is designed to be used with a boat lift that can handle up to 13,000 lbs. pontoon style boat. There is two options: (1) with aluminum bunks and (1) with the mounts for wooden beams (not provided). The cradle is fully adjustable. It uses stainless steel fasteners. The aluminum bunk version includes a cable compounding kit. The 12 foot 6 inch cradle beams have a 8 inch web and 5 inch flange. The bunks and mounts use backup plates to hold the stanchions and cradle mounting kits in place. Both versions include guidepost stanchions, stanchion PVC, and black 36 inch bumpers.

All boat cradles, cradle beams, and boat lift ship freight. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to unload the freight from the delivery truck. The purchaser must be present during delivery. For more questions, visit our shipping terms and conditions.

Aluminum cradles could become buoyant if wood bunks are added. To offset any buoyancy, engineered lifts with wood bunks (15001, 15002, 15006, and 15007) come with 4 x 10 lb cradle weights. Extra weights can be purchased separately.

Drilling into the aluminum structural beam compromises the integrity of the aluminum structural beam.
