Boat Lift Advantage

When founder Byron Godbersen designed the first ShoreStation back in 1959, he engineered it to work smarter than other lifts, but he also did one other thing – he over-built it. Heavier materials, stronger winches, better cables. Why all the fuss? Well, Byron believed that weekends at the lake should be spent relaxing with the family, not fixing broken equipment. Dependability was key way back then and it still is today. Relax, and spend your weekends doing what you love.


The old addage "you get what you pay for" couldn't be more true when it comes to ShoreStation® boat lifts. With 50 years of experience and continuous improvement, we have perfected the art of building the best! Our "robust" design provides the lowest cost of ownership among any lift, not to mention peace of mind about costly and time-consuming repairs. When you are ready to upgrade your boat lift, ShoreStation® used boat lifts have the highest resale value of any lift brand.


Midwest Industries Inc. was founded in 1954 in Ida Grove, Iowa.

Founder Byron Godbersen's first invention, the Bolster Hoist, used hydraulics to tilt grain bins that had been traditionally emptied by hand. The wildly successful product sparked an entire line of Midwest farm equipment.

Under Byron's guidance, Midwest evolved over the years from farm equipment to marine products.

Today production is focused exclusively on ShoreLand'r® Trailers and ShoreStation® Lakefront Systems.

The company's Ida Grove headquarters includes a 340,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, distribution warehouse, convention center and private test lake. Midwest employs over 300 people and their products are distributed throughout the U.S. and Canada, and internationally to countries in Europe and Asia.
