Residential Inclined Elevators, Lakeside Trams, Funiculars and Hillside Trolleys
You probably fell in love with your hillside home for its gorgeous views, but accessing the base or waterfront on your property poses a challenge. Trees, brush, rocks and unstable terrain may make it impossible to navigate the slope. An inclined elevator or hillside tram offers the perfect solution to retain the beauty while attaining full access!

Residential Inclined Elevator Models
Our inclined elevators are engineered with our proprietary pin pile design, creating a small footprint which makes minimal impact on your hillside. This opens up endless architectural and landscaping options in new-home construction or can be adapted to your existing architecture, adding tremendous value to your property.
While stairs offer a solution, they do not make hauling belongings or escorting children or physically challenged friends and relatives very efficient. Our inclined elevators are fully code compliant and designed with industrial components that deliver the strongest structure on the market today to safely, efficiently transport your precious cargo. We want you to feel safe and secure with your lakeside tram system, so our full-time staff is available throughout the sales, design and installation process, and after the sale. We’re just a phone call away.
After you’ve chosen your customized accessories, we’ll build your state-of-the-art hillside elevator to your specifications, and to our superior standards, right in our own facility. Our certified, factory-trained experts will install it on your property. Marine Innovations is proud to bring families together for the good times with our inclined elevators.

We invested in a Marine Innovations tram so we could stay in our home as we get older. We wanted to make it easy to access our lake. Our family and visitors love it! The view from the tram is great. It was the right thing to do!

It will also allow us to host functions for veterans through Patriots for Disabled Divers.
Thank you, Marine Innovations, for helping to make this possible.

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.

My experience with Marine Innovations is defined by efficiency and affordability. I compared quotes from multiple companies and Marine Innovations was the best value. When others couldn’t schedule the installation for months/years, Marine Innovations went out of their way to get my tram installed within a couple of months. Once on-site, the team had the tram 90% complete with the first week. I recommend Marine Innovations to anyone looking for a seamless path to their dream tram.
If you’d like to know more about our company or talk with one of us, please give us a call. We’d be happy to answer your questions and help you make the most of your property by adding a lakeside elevator or hillside tram.
