Best Features to Add to Your Floating Dock Project

May 28 2020

Whether you are a private landowner who wants to take advantage of your waterfront location or you are working on a commercial application, floating docks deliver a wide range of benefits. Easy to configure, install, move, and even remove for storage, these solutions offer exceptional convenience – and, of course, great access to the water. If you are planning a floating dock project, take a minute to consider all the features you can add.


There are a variety of features that can enhance your dock, including:

  • Dock Ladders: Hoisting yourself out of the water or a boat can be awkward. Make life easier on yourself and your guests with a convenient ladder. AccuDock offers 3, 4, and 5 step options, as well as folding ladders (which are great when water levels fluctuate widely).
  • Dock Stairs: Dock stairs can add further convenience and appeal for users. Made of fiberglass, our 3 and 4 step options are durable, slip-resistant, and safe. You can also opt for a backside return rail.
  • Railings: Another important safety feature, these are particularly important in commercial settings, but they are helpful for homeowners as well.
  • Bump Strips and Fenders: Prevent damage to your boat or PWC with these useful accessories.
  • Accessories for Personal Watercrafts: Love your PWC? When planning your floating dock project, consider adding:
    • Overhead Assist Bar and/or Side Assist Railing: These options make ingress and egress from kayaks or canoes much easier.
    • Safe Launch. This is designed for kayaks and are used on dock setups that have a slip. It allows you to launch your kayak on the ramp and easily enter the water.
    • Paddleboard Railing and Paddle Sport Storage Rack. If you love paddleboarding, your dock can be customized to meet your needs. Safely store your crafts/paddles out of the water and ensure they’re ready for the next time you head out.
    • Dock Boxes. Used to keep your dock and boating accessories safe and sound.
  • Colors: There are a variety of decking colors available today. Choose the option that best suits your property’s aesthetic, from teakwood and rosewood to harbor grey and sand castle.
  • Floating Dock Sections: Some of the handiest features in your floating dock project are the sections themselves! They are configurable so you can create a “custom” dock layout without going to the expense of specialty building. Modular systems offer the utmost convenience and customization without the staggering price tag.
