Boat Dock Additions

Custom crafted by us, to make your dock your own


These dock additions are the just some of the available features and options to set your dock apart from all others.

The design elements and functional pieces shown here are all available through your Flotation Systems dealer.

Watercraft Lifts

If you have a boat or PWC, the ease and safety of a lift is essential. Flotation Systems offers a range of ways to keep your vessel dry, clean, and secure.

personal-watercraft-lift-3For stationary docks, we can provide mounting and materials for overhead lifts. Your lift will be installed when your dock is constructed on-site. For floating docks, we offer the even weight distribution of tank-style lifts that connect at four points inside the slip.

Personal watercraft lifts are available as overhead lifts for stationary docks and drive-on lifts for floating docks. Each installation is different, based on brand and style of lift you select. Your Flotation Systems dealer will be happy to help you select the right lift for your needs.

Slip Fill-Ins

Our slip fill-ins are designed to convert unused slips into useful space for seating or personal watercraft storage. Used in multi-slip docks that only need one slip now, a fill-in is the perfect way to maximize your space while keeping your dock ready until the slip is needed.

Fill-ins are available for any size Flotation Systems slip, and are custom-made to suit your application. The slip can be entirely enclosed, or space can be left—as a 45-degree “V” or square end—in the fill-in for smaller watercraft docking.

Slip fill-ins are installed when the dock scan be installed during initial dock installation or at a later date. Stable and beautiful, each fill-in looks and acts as part of the dock, featuring the same LockDry decking used on the regular platform. When you add a boatready, the fill-in can be removed and your dock converted to part or full slip capacity.

Please note that our slip fill-ins are not intended for repeated installation and removal.

Swim Platforms

The ultimate in warm-weather fun, our swim platforms deliver wide, sun-kissed footage and provide the perfect place for recreation and entertaining.

Each swim platform is a perfectly integrated extension of the main dock, giving maximum space for all the fun a day (or night) has to offer.
