Brownell Boat Stands makes it easy for you to choose a boat stand that will work best for your type of vessel and storage needs with our Boat Stand Selector. For the best and most accurate results, you will need to know a couple of specifications, including the length, beam, draft and weight/displacement for your motorboat or sailboat. A boat stand system is used as a balancing device. The weight of the boat rests on its keel, supported by keep stands, benches or blocks. Our stands have been independently tested and have a certified safe working load of 20,000 pounds / 9,100 kgs.
