Marine Innovations Has Been Manufacturing State-of-the-Art Inclined Elevators, Hillside Elevator & Lift Systems, Lakeside Trams and Residential Funiculars for Over 30 Years

Your hillside property offers breathtaking scenic overviews which come with unique access problems. Steep, wooded, rocky or otherwise unsafe terrain make it a challenge to get back and forth to the base of the hill or waterfront. Steps are one option, but you still have to climb them, toting your cargo up and down as you go. Sometimes physical limitations make that climb impossible. Families with young children or pets, the elderly, people with handicaps, or folks who just don’t want to spend their time running stairs all day love Marine Innovation’s lakeside elevators, trams and lifts.

Luke Hoffman - Battle Lake, MN

Our Marine Innovations tram is a game changer. It’s perfect for running our two young children to the dock and back. The aluminum and galvanized steel construction is solid and strong. As an engineer, I weighed every option and I’m very satisfied with our tram. I’ve already recommended them to several friends.

Gull Lake Homeowner - Nisswa, MN

We loved the views from our new home on the lake, but accessing the water was a challenge. The Marine Innovations tram changed the climb to a smooth and easy ride. Now we have complete enjoyment of our home.

Carol & Phil Ferris - Lake Almanor, CA

We love the convenience of our Marine Innovations tram. We enjoy the simplicity and ease of riding to the dock, no more carrying stuff up and down the hill. Our grandkids love it too. Mike and Lori were a joy to work with throughout the entire process.

Charlotte Jacunski, Operations Manager, Northshore Marina

Northshore Marina clients love our Marine Innovations trams. They use the larger tram to haul gear to their boats and the express tram for quick up and down trips from the parking area to the dock. Our employees use them to keep the ship’s store stocked. They run constantly during our busy periods and their uptime is spectacular. They are essential for our older boating community to access and enjoy Lake Travis.

Brett L. - Lake Tuscaloosa, AL

My wife and I were planning for our property on Lake Tuscaloosa. We knew with two young children, we wouldn’t want to trudge up and down the mountainous bank to the dock. We researched other brands, but Marine Innovations stood out.  With the system being all built in-house, they were clearly the superior product. Nick was quick to respond to my call and they stood by their installation date. Now we have an aesthetically pleasing tram that is far better than a walking path to the lake.

M.D.W. - Knoxville, TN

Our dock was unusable, 200’ down a bank at a 30 degree angle. The Marine Innovations tram is a lifesaver. Easy and functional, it makes travel to the water, and the best part, back up to our house, a breeze. Nick was professional, delivering everything he promised on time. I give them my highest recommendation.
