Self-Propelled Vs. Towable Hydraulic Trailers for Your Marina

Self-Propelled Vs. Towable Hydraulic Trailers for Your Marina Posted on December 4, 2018

If you move boats from one side of your business to another, time is an important factor and so is safety and convenience. When it is time to think about some new hydraulic trailers you have many options including self-propelled and towable models. Which trailer is the best choice for you? Here is a closer look at the pros and cons of each one to give you a better idea.

Towable Units

A towable unit is the most economical choice. They are relatively simple in design. Towable yard trailers are specifically designed for yard use. The Goldstar Series comes in three sizes and can handle both shoal draft sail and power boats. These hydraulic trailers are specially made so one person can operate them with no problems.

Towable units have a few drawbacks. For example:

* Space – you need plenty of room to connect your tow vehicle.
* Maneuvering – it can be difficult to maneuver in tight spaces
* Reverse – it takes a lot of skill to back up trailers correctly.
* Time – using them can take up a lot of valuable time.


If you have tight storage needs, the ease of operation and four-wheel drive features are a welcome addition to your business. Most models come with an industrial diesel engine for trouble-free operation, and we have submersible options too.


With self-propelled hydraulic trailers, the operator has full visibility in all directions. Although initial cost may be more, you do not have to use towing vehicles, so this can save money in the long run. You can quickly and efficiently move your vessels anywhere you need them
