Hurley H2O Dinghy Davit ®

The Hurley H2O Dinghy Davit ® has a Sleek Euro Design, Marine Grade High-Density Polyethylene Cradles, and Stainless Steel Components, Functions as Good as it Looks, and is Impervious to Harsh Environments.  Our revolutionary new stainless steel mounting system provides a quick release, leaving a very small footprint profile that could pull a barge.  Each mount footprint requires only two bolts for the install and only stands 5/8" high leaving a clear deck for any activity. Mount Covers are available.

The H2O has been designed for either soft or hard bottoms.  The soft bottom model offers a wide 3" footprint for your tender.  This helps in the support of the transom where most of the weight is and is much easier on the bottom.  If you start out with a soft bottom tender and upgrade to a hard bottom, no problem, remove the soft bottom pads and add the adjustable Chock Pads.

The Hurley H2O Dinghy Davit ® is easily mounted on the swim platform.  This hassle-free system lets you lift and pull your dinghy on for easy storage or just push off for launching.  Always available in an emergency.

If you have a lip on the outer edge of your platform, let us know how high it is and we will ship you free shims with your purchase. 1/4" & 3/8" shims available.   The difficulty of retrieval depends upon the weight of your dinghy and the height of your platform off the water.

Hurley Marine, Inc. pioneered the original swim platform davit of this style back in 2002.  Since the original, our research and development (R&D) team has worked to provide the consumer with the very best in design and quality for versatility and years of enjoyment.  We believe that you should enjoy taking your tender along but not sacrificing your vessel's performance.  The low profile storage position on our davits provides exceptional stern visibility with none of the performance-robbing kite flying drag.  There are no other dinghy davits that compare!.  Make Sure it says "HURLEY" . . .   Sold Worldwide!

Additional Information


Properly Measuring for your Davit Mount Size

Key Dimensions Needed

Key Dimensions to Determine Mount Size

A = Swim platforms internal width
B = Platforms depth (transom to edge)
C = Distance from top of platform to the water
D = Beam of dinghy

To determine which mount system will work best for you, measure the beam of your dinghy, divide by 2 and add 4 inches. Now measure your platform (transom to the end).

You must add a number below to your platform length figure in order to determine which mount to use.

Example: If your dinghy width is 60″ then divide by 2 + 4″ = 34″. Swim platform is 32″. By adding 2″ to the platform this would make it equal to the dinghy width of 34″ so then you would have chosen the 6″ mount.

• 0 – 2″ for the 6″ Mount
• 2″-4″ for the 8″ Xtensions
• 4″-6″ for the 10″ Xtensions
• 6″+ for the 36″ Xtensions

Hint: 4 inches of the mount must be used to secure to the platform.

If you have a lip on the upper edge of your platform, let us know how high it is and we will include free shims with your purchase.

  1. Robert M. Toedter

    Great products are characterized by their elegant simplicity of design and ease of use. The Hurley Marine H20 Davits check all of the boxes. With the help and advice given by Hurley’s staff, the installation was straight-forward and easy. Our dinghy (Zodiac 340 Aluminum Bottom with Mercury 5HP outboard) pulled-up easily and without undue effort onto the swim platform. Also purchased were the cleats that attach to the mounting plates to tie the dinghy to while it’s in the water, and mounting plate covers to prevent people from stubbing their toes on the mounting plates. If you have a swim platform, then the Hurley Marine H20 Davit system is a winner!

    Hi Leslie,

    Thank you for all of your assistance in helping us in selection of the right Davit for our boat a 2018 Back Cove 32.

    Attached is a photo of us proceeding upriver at approximately 15 knots on Sojourn on the Columbia River. The H2O davit works great for our needs and the dinghy is an easy on and off of our Zodiac fiberglass 8’10” Cadet RIB equipped with a 6 hp Yamaha four-stroke engine.

    Best, Randy Duncan

    I’m very satisfied with my H2O’s, they are light and well made. When not in use the hardware on my platform is almost out of sight, this summer I had a chance to use them a lot, I’m very pleased with the product. I recommend this to everyone. and I also commend the good service by Mr. Hurley.
