Product Details

Hurley Traditional Dinghy Davit ™

The Hurley Traditional Dinghy Davit ™ is electrocoated to military specs, constructed with lightweight marine grade aluminum, isolated stainless steel fasteners and hardware.   All allowing for a highly durable system that weighs in at about 15 pounds.  The skid-plates are made of polyethylene and will allow for easy scuff-free maneuvering.

  • Cross members can be removed for independent cradle movement.  By pulling the 2 pivot pins the davit is easily removed for storage while leaving a clutter free deck.
  • The high gloss white powder coating is standard to better blend in with your dinghy and boat and not only looks great but adds years of extra life.  Recommended for Fresh Water use.
  • 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.
  • The difficultly of retrieval depends upon the weight of your dinghy and the height of your platform off the water.

Add a Hurley Davit system to your hydraulic swim platform and remove those ugly and dangerous chocks. By adding a Hurley Davit, you have removed the permanent chocks, have gained more room, and you can deploy the dinghy without lowering the platform. Once the dinghy is off the platform you can pivot the cradles overboard which is now free & clear of any hazards.

Mounting Systems:

The standard deck mount has two low-profile brackets that mount permanently on the swim platform.  Once installed the system is easily removed for storage by pulling two pins leaving a clutter free platform.

Our standard deck mounts can bolt to our stainless steel Weaver Adapter Plate which simply slides in to the Weaver Snap Davits.  No need to drill more holes!

Properly Measuring for your Davit Mount Size

Key Dimensions Needed

Key Dimensions

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 edge).

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.

    Great company and great service!

    We love the davits!
    We have just completed our first cruise with our Hurley davits. We couldn’t be happier! They fit perfectly, (thanks to Capt. Hurley’s expertise), kept everything organized, and made our cruise so much more enjoyable. The ease of launching and securing the dingy is without question, a very good experience.

    Thanks so much!

    The top of our swim platform is 2 feet from the top of the water. Our 10′ RIB inflatable with its 15 horsepower 4 stroke Yamaha is a little difficult to pull up at an angle, but I can do it myself. If you didn’t have the 48″ extenders I would have had to find some other Davit system. Our boat is a 405 Cruisers Express Motor Yacht.
    Thank you for your advice and help.
