Crew Lift Working 2


Boating Transfer System

Crew Lift has been specifically designed to enable people with restricted mobility to enjoy the pleasures of boating, giving them a safe and effective way to get on board. It has a guaranteed long life and can be mounted at dock-side, jetty or pontoon. The simple controls make it very easy to operate and provide a quick, comfortable and safe method of transfer.

Commissioning an installed Crewlift Davit by Caley Marina is a mandatory requirement under our safety and quality systems. Commissioning consists of an inspection and sign-off. It also includes training and certification for up to four people.

This training is the bare minimum for safe Crewlift operation. Further instruction in using lifting equipment to move people who have disabilities can be obtained from Caley Marina or external agencies such as the RYA.

The cost of commissioning is included in the price of a single Crewlift Davit. Travel and accommodation expenses for a commissioning engineer are additional.


Full instructions for the installation of your Crewlift will be provided by Caley Marina. This work can be undertaken by our workshop, or any suitably qualified contractor.

Crewlift can be installed on any secure, fixed surface. Pontoons may require specific engineering; for this reason, Caley Marina has forged special partnerships with the major UK pontoon manufacturers. Please ask if you require help with installation.

Our price for installation depends on numerous factors and we supply quotes on a case-by-case basis.
