Floating boat lift

Does anyone know what I can expect to pay for a floating lift. I only need a 6000 lbs lift because my boat is 19.5 ft. Brand recommendations?

Very nice lifts. I have had two installed for 14 seasons with no issues. I can't tell you what they cost now, but I am sure they would be happy to quote you.

If your boat is 19.5', you could probably get by with a 4000 to 4500lb lift. If you can find a used hydrohoist, you are looking at ~4k, new probably $7500.

Found a used one, 4000#, $3500 installed. I believe they are around $6-7k new.

I bought a used 6,000 lb. Sunstream Floatlift 6 years ago for $8,000. Best money I ever spent. Don't see a lot of them used for sale.

Hydrohoist. You don't need that big of a lift though...

Hydrohoist 6000 lb lift brand new with remote pedestal - think I paid somewhere around $7000 new - was more than enough for our X-15 and 4000 lb might not have cut it for our X-25. If you can swing it, go as large as you think your boat might go.
