Default Looking to buy boat lift cradle 34 freeman

I have a 4 post 16,000 pound lift. Looking for cradle for my new 34 freeman arriving in a few months. Located in sw Florida but willing to travel.

ive seem a few on here for sale but I am assuming they are sold.

if I need to go new is there anyone that has had one built? would like to use a company that already has the measurements.

Most lift installers have the dimensions for most boat builders, so I wouldnít worry about that part.

I am pretty sure Float-On in Vero Beach has the dimensions and could make one for you. Congrats on the new boat!

In SW florida call Boat Master in Ft. Meyers. They can build you a cradle. Or Myco can build one. I've seen some really custom cradels for stepped go fast hulls over in Naples.

Called them 3 weeks ago with this EXACT request and they said they havenít built a cradle in several years and donít do it anymore. Not sure whose info is wrong but I ended up getting my local lift guy to fabricate something. Should be complete in a week in time for the new Freeman.

I have the dims on the one my boat sits on. Itís cheap and easy to build.

A lot of the factory built ones are built short so if enough people are in front cleaning it may get bouncy in rear of vessel...and then OOPs.

U donít really need a cradle....just 4 carpeted wooden bunks (2 for each sponson) with 2 cutouts for the steps. And if you upgrade to a 37, just spread them out a few inches. Should run much cheaper than a cradle too. About $2000-3000. Donít forget to add 20lbs of lead to each side cuz wood floats and can lead to poorly wound cables.
