The easy way to launch and retrieve your tender!

LaConner Maritime’s Hide-a-Davit is the ideal accessory for quickly launching and retrieving your yacht’s tender. It mounts to the stern of your boat under the transom platform, leaving the platform un-obstructed when the tender is in use. Launch operation is as simple as pushing a button and stepping onboard your tender; retrieval is similarly hassle-free.

• Hardware attaches to the transom, under the swim step and out of sight.

• Compatible with inboard and outdrive yachts.

• In the down position, lifting arms are clear of the dinghy and motor.

Your complete satisfaction is our goal.


Technical Information:

The Hide-a-Davit system is built of corrosion-resistant stainless steel and marine aluminum. Two hydraulic cylinders give the standard system 650 pounds of lift. All this is installed under the swim step, out of sight, leaving the swim step clear and unobstructed. There is no unsightly hardware showing. The arms are formed of aluminum, powder coated white, and fitted with rubber pads to protect your tender.

For installation the boat must be hauled out. There are hydraulic lines that go below the swim step, but above the water line. There are also structural braces that bolt to the transom.

The kit comes complete with all hardware, arms, hydraulic system, “up and down” switch and easy to follow installation instructions.
