Never set foot on a boat ramp again

Boatcatch is a patented boat trailer accessory which makes launching and retrieving your boat on the boat ramp quick and easy. After it’s installed, you won’t have to even stand on a ramp ever again. No wet feet and no slipping on muddy, slippery ramps. Best of all, you will also save time and prevent arguments.

Once installed, Boatcatch allows you to launch and retrieve your boat in as little as 20 seconds with just 2 people. Spend less time on the boat ramp and more time enjoying your boating.

If you want to get technical, Boatcatch is a coupling system which helps form a quick release connection between your boat trailer the bow of the boat.

There are two sizes and Boatcatch is supplied as a kit complete with a universal mounting bracket and all components you will need for your boat-trailer arrangement. With complete instructions supplied and online or phone support, our product is easy to install and can be fitted by the average handyman.
