Waterman Marine Floats

Waterman Marine Floats and Ramps

We are pleased to offer handcrafted floats and ramps for sale together or as individual pieces; as a replacement for your existing components, or to complement your new pier.

As you see from the photo gallery these items are exceptionally well crafted, constructed for a long and useful life. All structural lumber is pressure treated southern yellow pine for strength and longevity with western red cedar decking for beauty and tactile friendliness. Waterman Marine Floats Internal fasteners are 1/2” & 5/8” hot dipped galvanized carriage bolts, nuts and washers. Cedar decking is fastened with stainless steel.


All floats come fully equipped with bollards at all corners, heavy duty cleats, vinyl boat bumpering and dingy rail if requested. Our floats are fully foamed for stability and buoyancy with heavy 4"x 6" shoes on the bottom to permit the float to be towed or dragged from the water for seasonal storage.

Float sizes vary with individual requirements and we can build non standard sizes subject to requirements to insure structural integrity. Our standard float sizes are 8' to 12' in width and lengths from10’ to 40'.

Three freeboard configurations are offered; lake-boy with 6 1/2" of freeboard, lo boy with 9" of freeboard and hi-boy with 16" of freeboard. Lake-boy is for lake settings in usually calm waters while lo boy is suitable for sheltered ocean settings. The hi-boy configuration is used for rough water and open ocean exposure.
