Golden boat lifts also have a variety of accessories available to exceed your accessibility and safety needs. Here's a deeper look into our top 7:

1. Stairs/Steps

Are you tired of jumping across from your boat to the dock? Do you want to ensure your dearest grandmother climbs aboard your boat with ease? Well, here's your solution. Golden's stair system gives you unbeatable access to your boat as they attach easily to our standard walkways. These come in different sizes including, 2 Step, 3 Step, and 4 Step options (8 inch step rise).

Another great benefit of these steps is that they can come with hand rails if requested. Larger sized steps are also available upon request. Adding stairs to your boat lift will alleviate accessibility issues with the elderly or disabled individuals, and will give you greater peace of mind when it comes to safety.

2. Walkway

Similarly to how stairs helps with accessibility, the walkway has many of the same aspects. After your boat has been lifted out of the water, allow your guests a greater size walkway as they deboard your boat. Cleaning will also be a breeze with all that extra space. The standard size is 15.5 inches wide or 12 inches wide, with lengths up to 24 feet long.

3. Remote Controls

Looking for more convenience in your life? Remote controls will provide just that. This incredible accessory allows you to put the boat on the lift while you're still in the boat. An extra add-on option for the remote control is an auto-stop effect in which the boat lift will stop at the preset height and depth. After a fun-filled day on the water, with just a simple press of the button, you can lift your boat out of the water with ease. Can life get any better?

4. Stern Platform

These durable steel platforms provide you with impeccable access to motors and out drives. Standard size is 16 feet long, but can also be customized to fit your needs. Rest assured you'll be able to reach those hard to reach places with a helpful stern platform.

5. Tide Guides

Keeping track of the tides and water level changes during the day can be an impossible task if you're busy entertaining friends or working on your boat all day. You can make this part of your life so much easier by having a tide guide. Tide guides are designed to keep the cradle in place in high current situations or high tides. They mount on all 4 corners of the cradle beams they follow the piles, and therefore keep the cradle in place at all times. Leaving you with one less thing to worry about.

6. Top Beam Covers

These are commonly used in a low profile installation system so that the top beam can be used as a walkway platform. These are made to fit each specific size lift.

7. Cable Keeper

The cable keeper's purpose is to keep the cable running in the correct grooves. This is extremely helpful in rough water situations. These are optional on any 4-post of 8-post lift system, but could save you time and hassle in a tricky situation.
