BH-65 – 6,500 lb. Deluxe Flat Plate Boat Lift Hoist

The BH-65 – 6,500 lb. Deluxe Flat Plate Boat Lift Hoist combines a 1 HP heavy-duty wired motor and a 6,500 lb. gear plate assembly to create a boat hoist. Features no steel-on-steel moving parts. The hoist uses bronze-on-steel gearing. A 96-tooth cast-iron worm gear on a hardened bronze worm. The hoist uses a solid aluminum extended block housing that strengthens and supports the backplate. This reduces heat build-up caused by friction and keeps the worm gear greased and aligned. It allows for a more economical and lighter weight 1/4″ backplate. The hoist includes actual true backplate bearings, innovative and easy-to-reach zerk grease fittings, enclosed worm housings, aluminum drive pulleys, drive belts, and extended support blocks.

BH-USA recommends using a licensed electrician to wire or rewire any electrical components.

  1. Dave Reyn olds

    Hoist worked well and was easy to install. Very satisfied

  2. Regina Johnson

    Very easy to install and received the next day.

  3. Terry A. Postero

    Received next day …. Excellent service …. Strong sturdy motor.

  4. High quality lift. I do think BH-USA should put the capacity plate under the products they sale. That way you know what motor you have to pay extra for in order to actually have the capacity that’s advertised.

  5. Just as expected

  6. I have installed dozens of these lifts over the last few years and they are always dependable, resilient, easy to install and well made overall. In fact, I usually just don't consider anything else. When you find something that is this good, why would you?
