Find any PWC owner who has a traditional PWC lift, show them an EZ Dock EZ Port MAX 2i, and watch as the “why didn’t I think of that” look appears on their face. “The EZ Port Max 2i features a split entry that centers your PWC and self-adjusting rollers that make loading and unloading smooth and almost effortless,” said Megan Damcevski of EZ Dock. Whether you are an experienced PWC operator or just getting started, this makes boarding and launching a breeze, and it’s ideal for any size or brand of PWC. The simplicity and obvious superiority of using this type of “lift” for a PWC is obvious: There are no cables to kink, no spools to jam, and no motors to power. Getting the PWC up onto the EZ Port is as easy as tapping the throttle, and re-launching is an easy push away. The EZ Port MAX 2i makes it simple to use and store your PWC, giving you more time to spend enjoying activities with friends and families. In case you’re wondering just how easy or difficult launching and retrieving a PWC on an EZ Port is, check out this short video.
Did you notice that the PWC stopped in just the right place, instead of over-shooting its parking spot? That’s because of the innovative EZ Port design. Polyethylene construction means things like rot and corrosion won’t ever be an issue. What we really like about this material, however, is that it’s essentially maintenance-free. It doesn’t have to be painted, it’s durable, UV stable, and it’s chemical resistant. The one-piece polyethylene construction is designed to last for years in the harshest waterfront conditions. In fact, an EZ Port may likely out-live your PWC. “With advancements in polyethylene manufacturing over the years, EZ Dock Ports and other products have become more and more durable,” explained Damcevski. “Our first dock ever made over 25 years ago is still in the water today!”
This type of unit is also a lot more flexible than a traditional lift in terms of how and where it’s secured. With a traditional lift, you need a dock with solid pilings to mount on. In the case of the EZ Port, the port is the dock—and it’s completely expandable. EZ Ports are essentially modular, and are attached to one another with a coupler system. You can add a section next to a finger pier, put a pair of ports between pilings, or create an entire floating dock from scratch. That means that as your fleet grows, your docking system can grow right along with it. You can mix and match sizes, too. The EZ Port Max is 12’4” long, and has a PWC weight capacity up to 1,380 pounds. The 14’ long EZ Port MAX 2i, can handle PWCs up to 1,700 pounds.
This kind of flexibility explains why Yamaha installed an EZ Dock system for their dealer meeting on the Potomac River, in Washington, DC. Allowing the use of a dozen PWCs, the entire docking platform (including changing rooms, a meeting room, and the EZ Ports) was set up in less than two days. Read the entire story about the dealer meeting and how EZ Dock and EZ Port made it happen on EZ Dock’s blog.
What about cost? How does the EZ Port MAX compare to a traditional lift? Distributors set exact pricing, and the cost will change depending on the nature of the system you need. But as a frame of reference, note that EZ Dock says the pricing is competitive with traditional lifts.
