The U.S. Navy ordered lifts for security and patrol boats from HydroHoist Boat Lifts of Claremore, Okla. The contracts for installations includes ports in Virginia, New Jersey, Connecticut and New Hampshire. In a statement, HydroHoist said the installations will be completed in April.

“HydroHoist’s quality manufacturing process, strong aluminum saltwater frame, polyethylene tanks and pushbutton control are some of the HarborHoist attributes that set us apart,” JB Robison Jr., HydroHoist inside sales manager, said in the statement. “Ultimately, the affordability of the HarborHoist, ease of operation and low maintenance requirements confirmed the U.S. Navy’s decision to choose HydroHoist.”
