Miami Beach Marina recently added four custom-built, four-post boat lifts made by Golden Boat Lifts.

The new lifts are in addition to many smaller Golden Boat Lift-equipped berths at the marina.

Golden Boat Lifts said each of the new lifts has a 40,000-pound capacity. Typically a lift designed for that weight would require eight posts. The company redesigned the aluminum top beam to sit on four concrete piles and securely carry the load.

Not only did it make a less expensive installation for the marina, but the increased aesthetic appeal adds to the slips' salability, the company said.

The marina offers dockage that ranges from overnight to annual, so the lifts needed to be adaptable to a wide range of hull and engine configurations. The custom four-post lifts will adjust to even support twin-engine inboard diesels.

Miami Beach Marina, which is part of the RCI Marine Group, has 400 slips to accommodate boats as large as 250 feet.
