Tiger Docks® Floating Dock system and Sunstream 24,000-lb FloatLifts™ installed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii


Centrally located in the United States, Tiger Docks is a premiere floating dock manufacturer with clients across the globe. Our custom marine solutions include helping you select a boat lift that will meet all of your specific criteria while remaining sensitive to your operational and fiscal requirements.


Tiger Docks specializes in fast-response military, police, and fire rescue boat lifts. Whether the need is for performance, speed, reliability or all of the above, Tiger Docks can help. Tiger Docks is a distributor of GSA-approved boat lifts, including those made by Sunstream and HydroHoist.


These reliable, high-performance boat lifts save government agencies a tremendous amount of time and money by modernizing boat protection and maintenance practices. The return on investment is realized by increasing the life of the asset, saving hard costs on fuel burn, and optimizing the workforce's time.

Sunstream's FloatLift™ has a capacity weight up to 36,000 lbs. Simply tie the FloatLift to most places you can tie your boat: slips, side-ties or even a mooring buoy. The DC system can be charged using either the solar or AC powered options. The standard rear guides and remote control make docking incredibly easy.

The FloatLift is designed for fresh or salt water, with an aluminum frame, stainless steel hardware, marine-grade hydraulic cylinders with stainless shafts, and marine-grade hoses. The rubber-capped SuperBunks™ are not only durable, but provide the ultimate in cushioned support for your hull.

With a Sunstream FloatLift, boats last longer and burn 10-20% less fuel. Maintenance costs are reduced, as are extra costs associated with storing and relocating your fleet. Enhance your mission, reduce total ownership costs, and protect the environment with this hardworking life.

Boat lifts offered by Tiger Docks are a popular choice among military, police, and fire rescue units because they...

  • Keep vessels response-ready
  • Reduce maintenance by allowing boat servicing to take place on the water
  • Make docking safer and easier
  • Dry-store a boat anywhere
  • Come with a 1-year warranty
