DOCK DESIGN OPTIONS
The layout, or footprint, is often the most critical element to a dock’s utility and is generally driven by the
expected boating or recreational needs of a user. A waterfront property owner with no boats and is seeking
a dock for fi shing, swimming or lounging purposes may opt for a Platform confi guration. Alternatively, if
one’s expectations are to own one or two boats, a traditional Single or Double Slip Dock may be more
suitable because of the protection a slip can provide. Moreover, waterfront property owners with one boat
and one or two PWCs have popularized our Side Slip Dock layout because of the generous, water level lounging area.
As you can imagine, there are endless permutations around these basic layouts but the vast majority of all docks are based on the following basic footprints.
DESIGN OPTIONS OVERVIEW
Wahoo Docks custom builds more unique docks for more locations throughout the world than any other dock manufacturer. We design docks to suit wide
ranging tastes, needs, regulatory requirements and environmental conditions. Yet, in each and every installation, the same attention to detail, proprietary
structural materials and exceptional design standards are maintained to ensure unparalleled durability, low maintenance and aesthetic appeal. Regulatory criteria
typically frame the general design of a dock, especially regarding its overall dimensions. However, even in the most stringent cases, customers can personalize
their docks through shape, colors, materials and other options to satisfy their particular needs and tastes—making it uniquely their own.
The docks presented are certainly not an inclusive list—in fact, we rarely build two docks that look exactly the same—but, these examples should provide a good
basis to help you make educated design decisions about your dock—specifi cally, with regard to its layout, roof style and anchoring system.
