Lake Chautauqua Dock and Lifts

Boating on the surface area of approximately 13,000 acres Metal Craft Docks and Lifts are in use everywhere at Lake Chautauqua.

Docks on Lake Chautauqua

Metal Craft Docks are built to stand the test of time with minimal maintenance. Our first commercial installation at Camp Mission Meadows on Lake Chautauqua in 1957 is still in use today! It’s important to Metal Craft Docks to have authorized dealer Chautauqua Ironworks to assist our dock customers with design, delivery and installation of their aluminum dock system. Need a replacement part or additional dock section? No problem! Chautauqua Ironworks has basic parts and even a few extra dock sections readily available. Metal Craft Docks are available in three standard colors: Cloud White, Earth Sand, and Sea Green as well as four standard widths and three standard lengths. Contact Chautauqua Ironworks for more information and assistance with your next dock project.

Lake Chautauqua Lifts

Lake Chautauqua residents have to extend their docks a very far distance into the lake just to reach the minimum water depth for watercraft. It’s important that your boat is secured when not in use and Metal Craft Docks has the solution to put your mind at ease. Metal Craft Lifts allow boat owners to safely and securely raise their watercraft out of the water for storage during the boating season. We offer aluminum boat lifts to accommodate boats up to 5000 lbs. and PWCs up to 1200 lbs. Metal Craft aluminum boat lifts have optional side guide and bunk upgrades so you can outfit the lift for your needs! Contact Metal Craft Docks today to discuss our boat lift and PWC options today.
