Hydraulic Boat Trailer

The Roodberg Hydraulic Boat Trailer is a boat mover designed to launch and recover boats on a slipway, transport the boats over land and park them in a storage area. Because it has an open U-frame design, including hydraulically operated variable width, it is the world's fastest way to handle boats. An agricultural tractor or reach truck is used to pull the boat mover. It uses the hydraulic facility of the pulling vehicle for all functions of the boat trailer. The boats are supported on large soft pads to give maximum comfort to the hull. The frame and the pads are independently adjustable in height, to keep the boat horizontal and vertical under all circumstances. The drawbar is extendable to fit boats of different lengths. The hydraulic cylinders are specially designed and manufactured by Roodberg and all lifting cylinders are manufactured including built-in safety valves.​

Self-Propelled Slipway Trailer

Instead of using a pulling vehicle to tow the hydraulic boat mover, Roodberg can offer a self propelled version. This is done by adding a raised motor compartment. These self propelled trailers can either be operated from the driver's position or by means of a remote control.

Powered Slipway Hoist

Roodberg Powered Slipway Hoist is a particularly useful piece of boat handling equipment. Lifting just about any form of hull in and out of the water, this hoist also enables a yard to lift boats on and off trucks.

Specials & Other Types

Roodberg also produce other types of trailers and boat movers. These include a Slipway Sling Lift, Cradle Transporters (for just carrying boats in cradles) and trailers for carrying narrow/canal boats.
