Standardized Floating Dock Components for Marinas

A floating dock is a type of dock assembled from individually designed standardized prefabricated sections. These sections can be connected in a variety of configurations to create a customized dock that meets the specific needs of the user. For Marinas, this means that you can customize your dock system for the types of boats and waterways your clients use. 

NyDock is a floating dock system made up of a combination of wood or composite deck and framing supported by High-Density Polyethylene pipes (HDPE). This pontoon material has been used in mining, municipal and industrial applications for many years. Compared to docks made of steel, HDPE floating docks are longer lasting due to their corrosion resistance and durability. 

The NyDock system, made up of a series of interconnected pontoons, provides buoyancy and supports the weight of the dock. The pontoons can withstand seasonal fluctuations in temperature and water levels while maintaining the same freeboard height for regular boat use. The NyDock HDPE pipes can be used in a variety of waterways including saltwater, freshwater and ponds. For both commercial and residential applications, NyDock floating docks can be customized to meet your unique needs.

Why Are Standardized Floating Dock Layouts Good For Marinas?

When working with the experienced team at NyDock, individual components can be added or removed in the design process to create your desired layout, allowing the marina to accommodate different sizes and types of boats. Our experienced team will help you design a layout that optimizes your space. NyDock uses drone technology to map out the property and create a pre-purchase design. This allows us to adjust for any irregularities on your property and choose a slip that matches your customers' boat size needs. Our drone technology and CAD layouts give you an opportunity to scrutinize the drawings and make adjustments prior to construction.

Ease of maintenance

Maintaining your NyDock floating dock is easy and cost-effective. The experienced NyDock team will help in designing and installing your floating dock ensuring the longevity of your dock. The NyDock floating dock system includes the necessary anchoring system to allow for easy adjustments during the season to compensate for seasonal water level fluctuation. The HDPE pipes used in the NyDock floating dock system prevent rust, dents, leaks, and cracks, and they do not require repainting. The materials we use and the quality and care of our designs and installations ensure that your NyDock system will last. 

When maintaining a marina, whether large or small, the costs and work associated with winterizing your business can be daunting. But with NyDock floating docks you can go into the winter months without having to remove your docks. To prepare your floating dock for the ice, to disconnect the ramp loosen the anchoring ropes and tie guidelines to the shore. This allows your docks to freeze into the ice in the winter and rise with water level increases in the spring. Allow your docks to freeze into the ice in any area that is calm and reasonably sheltered from ice damming or away from areas that would commonly have ice smash up against the shore. Once the ice melts, you can reconnect your ramps and your docks will be ready to use.


With our highly durable materials, you can have the confidence that NyDock is a cost-effective solution for your marina. Our HDPE pontoons require little to no maintenance, and with the added benefit of no winter removal, your NyDock floating dock will be a cost-effective solution for your business that keeps your customers happy for years to come. In the unlikely event that something happens to your floating dock, the NyDock team is committed to providing you with fast repairs.
