Now you can take inflatable boats, inflatable Rib, row boat, canoe, kayaks, ski tube towables on your cruise securely without spending several hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a davit system - and you won't lose precious swim platform, deck or bow space. Unlike most other davit systems, with the Dinghy Sling you don't have to glue parts on your dinghy, and in this case you won't have to drill holes in your vessel either.

The dinghy sling davit system floats behind your boat ready to accept your dinghy, which is then cradled by the sling. The dinghy is then lifted up to desired height on your transom or on the swim platform and pivoted to any angle you choose utilizing adjustable straps and specially made loop straps which connect to cleats, railings or stanchions on your larger vessel. Once snug, the dinghy will not move or bounce around even in rough seas. See the benefits below:

Benefits of the Dinghy Sling System:

  • 360 degree integrated flotations and long straps for larger vessels to allow the sling to help keep it's shape during deployment, resist floating under vessel, and ability to use on wider beams where cleats or rails are not close to dinghy.
  • Strong, portable, lightweight, UV resistant with all marine grade materials and strongest attachment buckles available.
  • Easy lifting and lowering with quick deployment for emergency situations.
  • Can be stored straight up or at any angle - you choose so as not to block view.
  • Can prevent man overboard situations where the dinghy could catch you.
  • Works on sailboats & power boats with or without a swim platform and even off the sides of docks for a clear walkway.
  • Will carry kayaks, row boats, canoes, inflatable boats, RIBs, ski tube towables, cargo and more.
  • Sling davit connects to your larger vessel using long support straps and quick snap buckles.
  • No drilling, bolting, gluing or modifications to your boat or dinghy. No more fiberglass chips and cracks!
  • Keeps your tender out of the water to prevent algae growth and drag on vessel.
  • Helps in maneuvering in tight harbors where towing would not be possible.
  • Helps reduce chance of theft of dinghy or kayak while up in sling.
  • Testing has shown reduced engine exhaust noise on deck and keeps you drier from splashing in following seas since inflatable rests against transom.
  • Easily operated with only 1 person. Feel secure knowing your dinghy is behind you ready to deploy in a few seconds.
  • Comes with a handy storage bag for tidy storage of sling when not in use.
  • Fits perfect on Cruisers, Back Cove, Searay, Formula, trawlers, catamaran and many other power boats and sailboats with inboard or inboard / outboard engines.

Can I Leave My Engine on my Dinghy when using the Dinghy Sing?
It is feasible to leave your outboard motor on the dinghy when using the Dinghy Sling, however this is your choice based on several factors such as:

  • Total weight of dinghy, engine, gas tank, etc, cannot exceed sling maximum weight rating of 200 lbs.
  • We recommend only 2 stroke engines under 8 HP, and not 4 stroke engines unless you plan to leave the dinghy in the horizontal or flat position. When 4 stroke engines are tilted sideways, they can allow gas to run into the crankcase, which is bad for the engine.
  • We recommend removing the fuel tank unless you plan to leave the dinghy slung in the horizontal position.
  • Will the dinghy will be tilted up in a vertical position and create instability of the engine, especially in rough water, leading to it falling off and being damaged or lost.
  • We suggest you consider all of these closely before deciding whether to leave your engine on when using the Dinghy Sling.

Do not use with other gear or seating in dinghy that exceeds sling maximum weight rating, or is loose and could fall out.
