The Retreat 1.6 was designed specifically to address those boats that were a touch too big to properly fit on the Retreat, but not quite big enough to justify the Retreat 2 or Harbor.
At 7.5′ by 16′, the Retreat 1.6 is a two-piece, foam filled lift. Like its bigger cousins, the Retreat 1.6 offers adjustable and removable bunks, a recessed bow entry, and the ability to attach either bow-to or side-to to any manner of structure.
In addition, the Retreat 1.6 is available as a solar hybrid lift that utilizes an integrated air ballast to dynamically lift and lower the stern of your boat into the water. This option increases its lift capacity to hold heavier boats while at the same time makes it easier to launch featherweight boats (like kevlar-hulled flats boats) that are too light to submerge their props enough to back off a standard lift under their own power.

Price range – Standard lifts starting around $5000. Air assist lifts starting around $7000.
