HydroHoist Marine Group is bringing a new PWC docking platform to the recreational marine market.

While docking, a PWC is fully roller-supported on the new HP Extreme, which utilizes high-performance, 5-inch-by-2-inch rollers, the company said. Roller width and placement are easily adjustable to accommodate different crafts.

HydroHoist said the platform is made from expanded polystyrene marine foam for increased strength and leak elimination. The port has flat, anti-skid walking surfaces and an exclusive “air-pillow” bow stop.

“The HP Extreme is the easiest load and launch of any PWC docking platform on the market, with features unmatched by any in the boatlift industry,” HydroHoist CEO Mick Webber said in a statement.

“We’ve had customers involved in our testing, and they say it’s the easiest drive-on port — truly eliminating the initial ‘bump’ that many customers feel when driving onto a PWC port, and the added bow stop makes it easier to stop at the right point,” Webber added.

HydroHoist worked with the Italian company Persico Group, which HydroHoist said is known as a worldwide leader in engineering mold designs. The mold was shipped to RotoMoldUSA — a division of HydroHoist — for final assembly and where production began earlier this month.

“This CNC mold means an exacting standard of form, function and fit — again, a first in our industry and in cooperation with another worldwide leader in their field. We are thrilled to bring this level of engineering to our customers,” Webber said.
