Innovative System For Pull-on Storage of Inflatable Boat Dinghies and Hard Shell Dinghies on PowerboatsPull on dinghy davit


A high quality davit system that is easy to install and simple to use.


"No expensive gluing of parts on your dinghy. No hassles, no worries....just go boating!"


The Hurley Traditional Dinghy Davit is economical yet tough and provides a simple solution for dinghy storage while gaining more room on your swim platform. This rugged hassle free system lets you lift and pull your dinghy on for easy storage or just push-off for launching. Easily mounted on the swim platform and can be installed while the vessel is in the water. 

  • Constructed with light weight marine grade aluminum
  • 350 lb weight capacity. Keep in mind that as a dinghy gets heavier it gets harder to  pull up on your swim platform, so you may want to consider out H3O davit system which comes with a built-in winch system.
  • Powder Coated to military spec’s
  • Multiple mount sizes to accommodate different size platforms
  • Cross-members to aide in retrieval and launching
  • Davit mounts are 36" apart.
  • Easy 3-point tie down system available
  • Economical yet rugged
  • Mounting bolts are not included - as swim platform thicknesses are all different.
  • Two year warranty.

These davits are designed for the boat owner who demands the best in function and style at a low cost. A simple solution for dinghy storage while retaining room on your swim platform. We offer different mounting systems to match almost any size swim platform.


The Traditional Dinghy Davit is electrocoated to military specs, constructed with lightweight marine grade aluminum, isolated stainless steel fasteners and hardware.   All allowing for a highly durable system that weighs in at about 15 pounds. The skid-plates are made of polyethylene and will allow for easy scuff-free maneuvering.

  • Cross members can be removed for independent cradle movement.
  • By pulling the 2 pivot pins the davit is easily removed for storage while leaving a clutter free deck.
  • Easily mounted on the swim platform. No major installations, no expensive and complex gluing, no hassles, no damage to dinghy, less expensive and will last forever! Other davit systems require gluing of parts, this system does not.
  • The high gloss white powder coating is standard to better blend in with your dinghy and boat and not only looks great but adds years of extra life in harsh environments.
  • Easily mounted on the swim platform, this hassle free system lets you lift and pull your dinghy on for easy storage or just push-off for launching. Always available in emergency.
  • Davit can be customized with "Custom Optional InsertFor Rib" to perfectly match the hull shape of your rib.  We will insert polyethylene blocks that can be cut by you to perfectly to match your Rib hull shape. This not only give you a custom fit, but also adds strength to your system. When ordering your davit, be sure to add the Optional Rib Insert to your shopping cart also if you want it (it's a separate acessory).
  • The difficultly of retrieval depends upon the weight of dinghy and height of your platform off the water.
  • 350 lb weight capacity. Keep in mind that as a dinghy gets heavier it gets harder to  pull up on your swim platform, so you may want to consider out H3O davit system which comes with a built-in winch system.


Add a davit system to your hydraulic swim platform and remove those ugly and dangerous chocks. By adding a davit, you have removed the permanent chocks, have gained more room, and you can deploy the dinghy without lowering the platform. Once the dinghy is off the platform you can pivot the cradles overboard which is now free & clear of any hazards.


Mounting Brackets
(6 inch brackets only available)
The deck mount has two low-profile brackets that mount permanently on the swim platform. Once installed the system is easily removed for storage by pulling two pins leaving a clutter free platform. There are several size of mount brackets to suit your specific swim platform size. Select your correct size when purchasing. See Sizing Info tab above.





The system size is 37" wide (port to starboard measurement - the way the dinghy lays) by 40" long (fore to aft).

To determine which mount system will work best for you, measure the outside beam (width) of your dinghy, then divide by 2 and add 4 inches. Now measure your platform depth (transom of yacht to the outer end over the water).

You must add a number below to your platform depth figure in order to determine which mount to use. The platform depth figure must be equal to or greater than half the width of your dinghy width.

Example: If your dinghy width is 60", then divide by 2 + 4" = 34". If your swim platform depth (B) is 32", by adding 2" to the platform depth this would make it equal to the dinghy width of 34" so then you would choose the 6" model.

Hint: it's the 6 inch model you need because 4 inches of the mount must be used to secure to the deck.

If your having problems determining the right mount size, contact us.

Key Dimensions to Determine Mount
A = Swim platforms internal width. B = Platforms depth (transom to edge).
C = Distance from top of platform to the water. D = Beam of dinghy.

- Questions and Answers -

Why this Davit?
This hassle-free launch and retrieval system allows you to store your inflatable, with outboard, on your swim platform while giving you 1/3 more space. The system size is 37" wide (port to starboard measurement - the way the dinghy lays) by 40" long (fore to aft). Made with light weight aluminum, stainless steel fasteners and hardware allows for a highly durable corrosion free system. Easily mounted on the swim platform, this hassle free system lets you pull your dinghy on for easy storage or just push off for launching. Easily launched for an emergency and allows no algae or barnacle growth on the dinghy - saving you money in cleaning and repairs down the road.

How do I know it will fit my swim platform?
Your platform only needs to be approximately 4 inches greater than half the width (beam) of your inflatable for mounting. To determine that this application will work for you, measure the beam of your dinghy and divide by 2 and add 4 inches. If this figure is equal or larger than the depth (transom to the end) of your platform we have a davit for you (view sizing information tab). If you think it will not fit your swim platform, consider one of our other davit products. Extension mounts can be purchased for smaller swim platforms.

Is my swim platform strong enough?
Usually, but not always, particularly if you are planning on cradling a heavy dinghy. We suggest consulting the manufacturer for the "safe working load" of your swim platform.

How should I plan my installation?
Take your time and plan your installation! The ideal position for the dinghy on the davit is to have the dinghy sitting squarely in the "cradle" of the davit and off-set the davit on the platform so that the stern (transom) of the dinghy is more supported due to weight of motor, etc.

Can I use the rails on my swim platform to mount my davit?
Yes. We have mounts to attach directly to swim platform rails.

How are davits rated?
The davits are rated on their ability to carry a "safe working load". For example, it is unreasonable to suggest that a davit with a safe working load of 300lbs. could cradle a dinghy weighing double that or 600lbs. These davits have a very large margin of strength designed into them and simply do not fail if used within their designed ratings. However, allowing the dinghy to fill with water will create a bad situation. Remember to remove the drain plug if your boat will be unattended to any period of time.

Can I remove my davit?
Yes! The deck mounts have two quick release pins and can be removed in seconds for storage and only weighs approx. 15 pounds. The 36" system is completely removeable now except for the small plastic support brackets.

Should I tie the dinghy in place?
Yes! You must secure your dinghy in place on the davit system. Damage or loss is certain to result if not tied down. The dinghy should be tied down securely from the bow and stern to prevent movement of the dinghy and shock loads coming from heavy seas. We prefer to see ratchet or cam straps used. If the straps become loose at sea, a simple pull on the ratchet lever or strap will snug the dinghy. Using additional rope is a wise idea also.

Can I take my boat in heavy seas with the dinghy on the davit?
Yes! We all know the type of seas we are generally comfortable and/or experienced in. You can carry anything you like on the davits up to the designed weight rating of your davit system. If you are planing a cruise and expect rougher conditions, consider removing the outboard motor. Double check the dinghy and make sure it's lashed on the deck - you cannot know what conditions you might encounter and bad weather is no place to discover that you should have paid closer attention. To be safe, always add some additional rope tie-downs up and over the boat.

Can I get my davit customized to fit my hard bottom dinghy?
Yes you can customize it. When ordering be sure to add "Custom Optional InsertFor Rib" to your shopping cart. We will then insert polyethylene blocks that can be cut perfectly to match your Rib. This not only give you a custom fit, but also adds strength to your system. Older models can be sent to us to be customized as well.
