Davits – Helpful Questions when looking for a Davit
Todd Hurley of Hurley Marine explains how the right davit makes loading your dinghy a breeze.
What are the benefits of bringing a tender aboard using a davit?
Hurley: Instead of towing a dinghy behind your craft, you easily can bring it aboard to eliminate performance-robbing drag. The low-profile storage position on Hurley Davits provides exceptional stern visibility.
What factors should be taken into consideration when choosing a davit?
Hurley: Platform and dinghy measurements, as well as weight, should be kept in mind. We advise choosing the best davit for your boat and letting that dictate your choice of dinghy. Remember that dinghy size and weight may impact trim, performance and the structural integrity of your vessel. While some boat owners get around this by towing their dinghy, it’s neither safe nor practical.
Are davits hard to install?
Hurley: Hurley Davits are easily mounted with simple hand tools, even when the vessel is in the water.

Hurley’s H3O Dinghy Davit System is Strong and Stable!
The H3O dinghy davit has now been time tested and going very strong. This new davit system has proven itself in the retrieval of inflatables to the Sea Doo Spark Jet Ski and more . . . We have put a weight load limit of 425 pounds on this davit but this system has proven itself well beyond. Some customers have even stretched the limits by hitting the 650 pound mark with just a few minor adjustments.
CAD software was used throughout the product development cycle of this complex and unique design which allows this rugged davit system to winch your tender on for easy storage or just push-off for launching.
Another special feature of the H3O dinghy davit is the adjustable and removable winching system. The stainless steel retrieval arm is adjustable from 3′ to 5′, depending upon the length of your tender, and is easliy removed for storage while underway.
Online Dinghy Davit Worksheet
Dinghy Davit Worksheet – When you are looking to order a Dinghy Davit, the first step is filling out our Online Dinghy Davit Worksheet. We do not keep measurements on file based on vessel or dinghies types, because all combinations are different. We absolutely want to make sure the Davit system we recommend is going to work with your set up.
We do not keep measurements on file based on vessel or dinghy types . . .
The online Dinghy Davit worksheet will ask for Platform Length, Width and Depth. We ask how high the platform sits off the water because the higher the distance, the harder the retrieval. As for the dinghy, we need to know the length and the beam of the dinghy. This will tell us how much of the dinghy will be able to sit on the platform and which size mounts will work. Also […]
Hurley Marine, Inc. is proud to announce BHG Marine, based in Lymington England, as the sole Distributor in the UK and Ireland, for the Hurley Davit line.
Hurley Dinghy Davits have 3 different models, which accommodate many sizes of inflatable boats and tenders. Allowing easy storage of a tender on the swim platform of many craft, and offering an easy launch and retrieval system for all hard or soft bottom inflatable, tender or Jet Ski.

These systems allow the outboard motor to stay fitted when launching and retrieving, and the davits can easily be removed and stored, when the swim platform is in use.
