Features and Information on Rail Mount Davits

Our sail systems are adjustable at any time, by merely loosening a rail bracket and sliding it on the rail to a new chosen location. No other system has this feature while retaining so much lateral support. All our systems are shipped with slings custom made to fit your dinghy. In most cases they are manufactured from white vinyl coated stainless lifeline cable, with the ends finished in stainless thimbles and carbines. Where nicro press sleeves are used, we use zinc plated ones that will give a consistent quality appearance.These systems have been engineered to offer the most in strength, appearance and performance. Some of the features include:

  • Easy one-afternoon installation giving factory perfect strength and appearance. 

  • Manufactured in two heights, allowing installation on boats with any height of stern rail. 

  • Full range of spacers, mounts and brackets for hard to fit models of any make. 

  • Base mount is a "universal joint", it allows installation on a surface of any angle. 

  • Tubular strut system is the strongest transverse support system in the industry. 

  • Each davit is static tested to 450 lbs. to withstand pounding motion at sea. 

  • System is rated to easily handle a safe working load of 250 lbs. 

  • Brand name 4:1 or optional 6:1 blocks, designed for 3/8" rope. 

  • Four welded stainless cleats included on davits. 

  • Custom made slings to fit your dinghy! 

  • Thirty-day unconditional money back guarantee! (Shipping costs excluded.) 

  • One-year no hassle warranty!


Other Options Included:


  • Connecting strut kits (one or two) to join the davits together. This increases transverse support and provides a mounting platform for solar panels. 

  • Spliced yacht braid rope available in a choice of colors. 

  • 6:1 tackle for one side or for both sides. 

  • Spacers and special mounts that make difficult installations a breeze.
