The Rhino-Rack Nautic Kayak Lifter is a complete system for easily loading and unloading your kayaks on top your car.

With an 80kg load capacity, it does not require any heavy lifting and a single person can operate it using the included winch.

The unit is designed to be neatly stored on the roof of your vehicle beside your kayak when not in operation.

Important Note: Designed to fit Rhino-Rack Vortex and Thule Aero systems with bar overhang with at least 100mm excluding pad and clamp setups.


With no drilling required, the Rhino-Rack Nautic Kayak Lifter is quick and easy to set up. Adjustable height to suit most vehicles, it uses a 2-point harness to hoist your kayak.

Designed and built in Australia, the Nautic Kayak Lifter has a lifting capacity of 80kgs/176lbs and has alloy ramps to load your kayak with minimum friction and easy sliding motion.

What's included?

  • 2 x adjustable alloy ramps
  • 2 x longitudinal alloy roller support bars
  • Hand Brake Winch
  • Harness Kit (6 tie down straps with multiple lengths included)
  • 8m / 26ft non stretch marine rope

Roof Rack Compatibility

The Nautic Kayak Lifter requires a minimum of 100m of overhang on the roller side (as indicated in the fitting instructions on page 2). This can be achieved by offsetting the cross bar to one side.

NOTE: the winch side does not require the 100m overhang.
