Family Owned & Operated

Welcome to Shore-Mate, your trusted partner for premium boat lifts and docks in the picturesque Rockford, Michigan region. With a legacy dating back to 1992, we were the pioneers in designing and manufacturing hydraulic boat lifts. Over the years, we’ve taken pride in our continuous commitment to innovation, setting industry standards that elevate your waterfront experience. Explore our expert craftsmanship and discover how we continue to lead the way in delivering cutting-edge solutions for your marine needs today.

Boat Lifts

Shore-Mate offers a comprehensive range of boat lifts designed to cater to boats of all sizes, including pontoons and personal watercraft.

Whether you opt for our hydraulic or cable lifts, you can trust in Shore-Mate’s commitment to protecting your investment. Our lifts elevate your boat out of the water, shielding it from algae, blistering, Zebra Mussels, and wave damage, thus preserving its value. 

With options ranging from manual to one-touch remote hydraulic models and the flexibility to customize the lift to your boat’s specific needs, Shore-Mate ensures that every lift is engineered for ease of use, versatility, and long-lasting durability. Our low bed construction allows for use in shallow water close to the shore, and the marine-grade aluminum construction, stainless steel, and brass fasteners, adjustable lift legs, and rust-resistant steel powder-coated lift wheel exemplify our commitment to quality.
