Types of Boat Docks in Sarasota

There are two types of boat docks that are offered by Wood Dock & Seawall, including:

Traditional Permanent or Fixed Boat Docks

If your dock needs to accommodate high traffic, a fixed dock is a great option. Unlike floating docks, fixed docks will experience less movement from watercraft activity and foot traffic. By and large, there are many additional benefits.

Floating Boat Docks

Unlike fixed docks, floating docks adapt to changing water levels. In other words, when the tides rise and fall, floating docks remain level with your boat. Additionally, floating boat docks do not need pilings or substructures for support. Consequently, they are quicker and easier to install.

What Type of Boat Dock Do I Need?

Choosing the right type of boat dock for your property involves more than just selecting a style that is visually pleasing. Generally speaking, there are a variety of things to consider when determining your docks needs. In other words, asking yourself the following questions will be helpful.


  • How many boats will the dock be accommodating?
  • Will the dock be accommodating any other watercrafts such as kayaks or jet skis?
  • What is the depth of the water?
  • What are the conditions of the water in your area? Is there heavy boat traffic or frequent storms?
  • What is your budget for building the dock?
  • Do you have time to maintain the dock yourself?

Boat Dock Decking Material

Wood Dock & Seawall offers only the finest selection of decking material to design your boat dock. Not only are our docks durable, they are long-lasting. As a result, we offer the following types of decking material:

  • Marine grade pressure-treated wood pilling and a pressure-treated wood decking – Pressure treated wood decking is a very popular choice for boat docks and marinas. After all, this type of decking offers a traditional wood grain appearance. Additionally, pressure treated wood dock planking is also one of the most cost-effective decking materials for boat docks.
  • Composite decking material – If you are looking for a more maintenance-free dock, then composite decking is for you. In the first place, composite decking is available in a variety of colors. Which are often fade-resistant. Additionally, staining and sealing is not required. Furthermore, most composite dock decking options are backed by a manufacturer’s warranty.
