Which lift should I choose for my superyacht?

When it comes to superyachts, the greatest example of form and function being married beautifully is a high-quality marine lift. There is a multitude of marine lifts to choose from and they all have different purposes and advantages. As one of the top luxury yacht elevator companies when it comes to designing, engineering and building yacht lift systems we’re here to present you the three choices to consider:

Cylindrical Glass Lift

A cylindrical glass lift is perfect for when you want your lift to breathe elegance into the space. Marvel at this beauty of engineering with a completely transparent glass exterior. Charm your guests as they experience all of the decks of your vessel and see all its intricacies first-hand. As they are being steadily shuttled through your yacht they will feel almost like they are flying.

In the design stage of creating your cylindrical glass lift you can request bespoke elements crafted to complement the surroundings of the yacht’s interior. Make it your own by choosing different metal finishes such as stainless steel or bronze to add accents to the lift shaft and car. Our recommendation of the perfect place for this lift on your superyacht would be a central location such as the middle of a spiral staircase for maximum use and display. This custom yacht lift would be the perfect addition to the most extravagant of superyachts.

Passenger Lift

A passenger lift can be slightly larger than a cylindrical glass lift and have a lot more functionality regarding how it will be used at sea. Similarly to the other lift solutions we can provide, the passenger lift has an extremely quiet running noise and so will not disturb your guests with unwanted mechanical sounds. The ride quality of our passenger lift is extremely smooth, mimicking the calming waters your yacht will sail through.

One great reason for installing a passenger lift in your yacht is the improved accessibility that it can bring to your guests. By adding wheelchair access, you can open up the wondrous world of superyachts to everyone.

This is more of a crew-focused solution and would be the main workhorse of the vessel in getting laundry or luggage from A to B. Your crew can also use the lift to move around the boat more efficiently and tend to all of the passengers’ needs. Working on a superyacht is a physically demanding job, therefore, improving logistics on your boat will only make your guests and your crew happier. 

Holland Marine Lifts can also provide non-passenger lift solutions for the purpose of the smooth running of your superyacht.

Custom Made Dumbwaiter

Dumbwaiters have existed and been used for thousands of years, with the first recorded use in 200 BC by the Ancient Romans. A dumbwaiter forgoes the purpose of ferrying people around your ship, and instead is a trusted tool streamlining the running of the galley, without the need to climb stairs. A superyacht dumbwaiter is the pinnacle of efficiency when serving food and moving items around a vessel with 

multiple decks. This can either be built and then installed by being hoisted onto your superyacht or have our engineers physically build the lift on the boat. A custom-made dumbwaiter would be the perfect choice for those who are no strangers to entertaining a large group of guests with incredible dinner parties. Enjoy faster table service and the reduced risk of dropping plates when trying to navigate stairs allowing you to serve food with the efficiency of a high-end restaurant. 

In addition to these lift models, we can also construct completely tailored lift solutions for your superyacht that take into consideration the existing structure and your specific needs. When choosing an installation location onboard your yacht, you need not worry, all of the lifts can be made with whatever space you have available.
As experts in the field of marine lift construction, our main goal is your receipt of a magnificent piece of engineering that is appreciated by everyone who steps foot on your vessel.
