Davit Systems

We always enjoy hearing comments from our many satisfied customers such as SKIP ROWLAND:

You and everyone connected with your company deserves the highest of compliments for the professional and THOROUGH manner in which you handled the sale and installation of our system. Being a “one-off” we anticipated some problems but never expected the attention to duty and integrity in business displayed by you folks.

Now, to the system itself. It works like a charm:

  1. It’s as close to theft proof as anything I can imagine.
  2. It is considerably more sturdy than ANY other system.
  3. The ease of adjusting height of inflatable from the water becomes a strong point in marketing this system for boats entering a following sea or who may at times be bothered by large wakes from other vessels.

The Sea Wise System holds the inflatable (and ours is a big one) absolutely steady, and it is so very easy to operate.

What our clients say

Stuart, I want to thank you for your assistance this summer.  I was relocating the SeaWise davit on my Eastbay Flybridge 43 and was able to fix a few issues I was having. I may approach you yet to fabricate a ‘taller’ swivel hook when I have time to measure and describe it.  The purpose of my note is to say how well everything works and how pleased we are with your support.

Thank you!

Wanted to tell you our new dinghy works very well. Thank you for all you did, coming down to the boat & custom fitting the base of the prawn puller to the hardware. It all works very well. It is nice to deal with a company that when you asked for something a little different they don’t just say they can’t do that. You always said “yah, I think we can make that work” and you did.

Thanks again!

We have been installing Sea Wise Marine systems for over 15 years with great success. Our customers love the ease and stress-free deployment functions and the reliability of the systems. The craftsmanship is top notch with top grade stainless steel fabrication. We will continue to recommend the Sea Wise davits to our customers.

I purchased the Seawise lift for my 2017 Nordic Tug 40. I have been pleased with both the lift and the after purchase service by Seawise. It was the right choice for my tender.

Thank you for the great the great price you gave me. Please let me know when you come down, dinner and drinks on me or at least drinks if your not too busy.

Love the system…it’s the best system I have ever seen and used …hated my old system. Don’t know why people buy any other ones, yours is so well designed and sooo easy to use.

My 11 year old grandson can even put the Dingy down. Great materials used …have had it for over 10 years now and no problems and no rust or corrosion anywhere. Never had had any mechanical issues with it ever. I love that it gives me full use of my swim platform…where most other systems cover some or most of the platform . I show and recommend it to many many of my boating friends.

You have a great product and a fine crew.  We installed our hydraulic system in April of 1998, and have been very satisfied with its performance and ease of operation.

Wishing you all the best in your future endeavors.

Dear Stuart
I am a Fleet Manager for Elliott Bay Yachting Center in Seattle, and I have managed a fleet of up to 100 luxury lease yachts from 28 feet to 60 feet of both power and sail vessels.  I have worked with almost every dinghy davit manufacturer in the United States, and have found that the Sea Wise system appears to be far superior to all other systems used in the fleet.

The Sea Wise systems are constructed with superior materials and generally a more heavy-duty design, and to my knowledge no dinghies have ever been lost due to heavy weather encounters. I have seen other systems fail and dinghies have been sheered away from stern steps in heavy weather situations. The ease of recovering and launching the dinghy is also a real plus compared to most other swim step type systems. The manual and electric launch systems are both easy to use, and the safety-locking pin prevents any accidental launches. My experience with owners and contractors that install this system has been very positive. The word is spreading here in the Northwest, that your system appears to be the system of choice for boat owners who are looking for a davit system to install on the swim step of their yacht. I believe that this is the best system on the market for the designed installation.

Dear Stuart,
I have a hydraulic powder coated unit with a dinghy that is a Novurania 11’6” model 335 DL, feauring a hard bottom, center console etc. I power it with a Honda 25 HP four stroke taking the cumulative weight to the maximum specified.  I have been totally satisfied with the system and have enjoyed it immensely. I can easily get the boat off at any dock, buoy or anchor situation and have many frustrated friends unable or unwilling to go through the hassle and fear of a second story crane launch. In addition, my wife can drop the dinghy with the flick of a toggle switch without any concern for safety or physical strain. I have literally gone from starting to drop the dinghy to pulling away under power in 45 seconds. An important additional advantage is the freedom to access my swim step to enter my starboard aft cockpit entry.

From my perspective, a strong useable dinghy is critical to enjoying boating in the Northwest. The Sea Wise System is well engineered and satisfies my needs completely. You should see the number of looks I have received over the years just dropping the dinghy in a marina with one finger on the toggle. These systems aren’t cheap. But they shouldn’t be. It is a purchase I would recommend to any boater who has the right situation.

Best regards
