Fabulous Water Level Dry Docking Solution

Be fab on the water with FAB docks – In the last few years, there has been a quiet revolution happening in marinas all around the country. A local Gold Coast innovation is not only keeping boats clean and dry—and hence, saving their owners thousands of dollars a year in maintenance—but it is also making novice skippers look like seasoned pros when it comes to berthing their boat.

FAB Dock was launched at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show in 2011, and is now saving hundreds of boats all around the country from the perils of living in salt water. The beauty of it is in its simplicity. A completely welded, one piece inflatable unit that is self-contained and operates on 12-volt. This means that it is easily moved if required, and is a substantially cheaper option than any other dry docking system. Not that there is anything cheap about the final product—it is made from the finest materials and components available and comes with a three-year warranty.

It is hard to keep something so good a secret for long. There are now FAB Docks installed in six countries, including in use by various New Zealand councils as a ‘Quarantine Doc’ in the fight against the spread of unwanted marine organisms in some of their more sensitive marine environments.

Having successfully built custom-made FAB Docks for nearly five years, the company has now launched their ‘off-the-shelf’ range for most boats up to 28 feet in length, with prices starting at just $6990.

So, if you want to join the fight to save our marine environment by eliminating toxic antifoul, and save yourself thousands of dollars every year in the process, then we recommend that you check out the company’s website and see if they can tailor a solution for your boat.
