Frequently Asked Questions about Boat Dollies

What is the difference between a boat dolly and a boat stand?

Boat stands create a fixed support system, while dollies have wheels allowing you to move the vessels around the boatyard, boat show, or shop.

What boat dolly is right for me?

It depends on the weight, length, and type of vessel. For example, our Titan Dollies can handle as much as 25,000 pounds per pair. Please contact HOSTAR for help selecting appropriate dollies for your boat.

How do I determine how many boat dollies I need?

You will need two dollies for most boats. However, pontoon vessels should have at least four three-wheel dollies. Our Power Cat dollies are designed to work with four or more units.

What type of boat dollies do you manufacture?
