HOSTAR designs and builds state-of-the-art hydraulic trailers for today's marina's, boatyards, haulers, restorers, dealers, and manufacturers.

Our hydraulic trailers solve the problems of limited storage space, high transporting and handling costs, unwieldy cradles and time-consuming loading and launching procedures. A completely open center, simple controls, and hydraulically driven arms and frame are the keys to their timesaving and laborsaving capabilities. A HOSTAR hydraulic trailer requires only one operator to handle ramp launching and haulout, loading and off-loading, transporting and storing.

Committed to providing hydraulic trailers and allied equipment of the highest quality, we have earned our reputation for incomparable value and superior customer service. We equip our trailers with the finest components, U.S. made wherever possible, and out welders and mechanics are exceptional craftsmen who take great pride in their work. We are known for our willingness to adapt designs to fit special customer requirements which often results in interesting and innovative improvements.

Our customers, who use their trailers on a daily basis, have become our best salesmen! We invite you to talk with some of them and to call us or visit our plant here in Massachusetts.
