Boat Hoists

Sail Newport has 2 self-serve boat hoists for the public to use.  These are single, center-point lifts that require either a lifting ring/strap that is terminated on the keel (J/24, J/22, Melges 24, Viper, Shields, Etchells) or a bridle system that comes to a single point (Lightning, Thistle, Snipe).  A User Agreement must be signed in the Dock Office prior to use.  Boat owners must provide their own lifting strap.  Boat owners may join Sail Newport as members to enjoy a discounted rate for hoist use, or register for summer-long or transient storage and membership to be granted unlimited hoist use during contracted dates.
