If you’ve ever dreamed of skipping the stairs and gliding from your cozy lakeside home down to your dock, stop dreaming and check out a hillside trolley. A hillside trolley is the ultimate home accessory that turns your hillside retreat into a view-filled haven without the hassle of stairs to the lake.

What is a Hillside Trolley?

If you’re a homeowner with a property on a lake or river, you know how important it is to have easy access to your waterfront. But what if your property is on a hillside? Now, imagine your home where accessing every level, including your dock, is as easy as pushing a button. That’s the beauty of a hillside trolley. Also known as trams, inclined elevators, hillside trams, and funiculars, these systems are a smooth and efficient home accessory that simplifies accessing all levels of your home, including your waterfront.

Precision Engineering for Your Peace of Mind

Marine Innovations hillside trolleys meet or exceed ASME A17.1, section 5.4 standards, and are built to be life-long systems with powder-coated aluminum, galvanized steel, zinc-plated steel, and stainless steel. Each system is professionally engineered and built for that exact installation. Our in-house engineer designs each system to ensure it exceeds the ASME code and safety regulations. CAD drawings are transferred to CNC waterjet cutting systems, plasma cutters, and CNC mills for material cutting, and CNC brake for parts forming. Engineered jigs and fixtures are utilized for exacting welds and consistent manufacturing procedures.

Craftsmanship at Every Step of the Process

Marine Innovations takes pride in going the extra mile when it comes to quality. Our craftsmen cut, weld, finish, and assemble each system, one part at a time. We take the steps necessary to ensure a quality hillside trolley that will last you a lifetime.

Installation is critical to ensuring a safe, strong and dependable hillside trolley. Marine Innovations prides itself on its proprietary, engineered pin pile installation method for an unmatched sturdy system with no concrete required, saving time and expense in installation. Our systems are installed by factory-trained personnel to ensure the strongest, safest hillside trolley.

Sometimes it’s the little things that make a house a home. It’s the same with a hillside trolley. Unique options such as designer carriages, canopies, custom controls, kayak/paddle board racks, and lights let you customize your system to your exact needs. These small (or sometimes big) touches can be the perfect accessory to ensure your enjoyment and comfort.
