Floating Docks & Platform Docks

Floating docks make the most sense for lots of homes on the Knoxville area lakes and rivers, especially if you have deep water or a soft shoreline. In fact, many folks simply prefer a floating or platform dock because of their versatility. At Knoxville Barge, we build sturdy and stylish custom floating docks in all shapes and sizes.

Whether you want a simple swim platform for the family, or a large floating dock at your waterfront business, Knoxville Barge can build you exactly the dock you have in mind.

Are Floating Docks Right for You?

Compared to fixed docks, the main reasons to install a floating dock include a deep shoreline, soft mud, and drastic water level changes. Floating platforms can be used regardless of water levels, so you won’t get stuck during low tide, nor will your dock get submerged in high tide. But that’s not where the advantages end.

Benefits of Floating Docks

  • Floats with high and low water
  • Portable and removable for winter storage
  • Great for swimming and fishing
  • With or without slip(s), can dock various sizes of boats
  • Fully customizable (decking, rails, ladders, and more)
