Boat Hoist

The Redondo Beach Marina, BOAT HOIST is one of only a handful of public hoists along the California coastline. It is the choice of many boaters who prefer the convenience of having a skilled operator launch their boat mechanically and safely via slings.

The Boat Hoist is a mere 100 yards from the harbor entrance and open ocean, and the Redondo Canyon begins a few hundred yards outside the breakwater. Rocky Point and the kelp beds off Palos Verdes are popular fishing grounds within minutes of King Harbor. At various times of the year, fishermen can pursue halibut, rockfish, sculpin, seabass, bonito, barracuda, and yellowtail.

Hoist your jet skis and private fishing boats for a day in the sun at the Redondo Beach Marina Boat Hoists. One 5 ton hoist make it easy and quick to be on the Pacific in no time flat.

Hand launch for your personal hand-carried watercraft is available at the Redondo Beach Marina,. Enjoy a day in the sun with your whole family.

The five-ton hoist in Redondo Beach Marina, is capable of hoisting boats up to 10,000 pounds and 30 feet in length. The Boat Hoist is open every day of the year except Christmas, and winter hours are from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. The extended summer hours begin Memorial Day Weekend. The fee is for a round trip, and prices range from $8.00 for a hand launch size boat, personal watercraft – $18.00, for 18 to 24ft – $30.00, for 25ft and over $40.00. Late returns and stay-overs are sometimes available by prior arrangement for an additional fee. For further information contact 310-374-3481.

There are several double-spaced parking spots within Redondo Beach Marina, for the ease of parking vehicles with trailers attached, but in the summer it’s best to start the day early, because the popularity of the harbor can limit parking availability in the peak summertime afternoon.
