GatorDock products are beautiful, heavy-duty options for large scale, high-traffic commercial marinas seeking the best long-term value. Our aluminum marina systems have been in service for forty years without needing to be replaced. Gator's signature E-channel frames promote stability and long life while being a cost efficient choice. Aluminum docks will require far less maintenance over the years than other conventional materials allowing you to save your maintenance budget for expanding your marina's services. With over 7000 marine access installations over the years, Gator is the expert at building a long lasting marina design specific to local environments and customer's needs.
Our professional team of product specialists can help you model your marina and include custom requests to make your project unique. Rather than choosing standard or off the shelf docks, when you choose Gator your boater's needs and the specific environmental characteristics of your marina location will determine the design.
Often times we work with clients whose marinas need to be expanded to cater to larger vessel sizes or new watercrafts. The engineering team at Gator can help restructure your current system into a more efficient and expanded design. Gator's unique materials and manufacturing process allow us to create angled and mitered dock sections. These unique-to-Gator design options make a large impact on marina layouts while meeting restrictive budgets.
To start the process of building your floating marina system, choose one of our three floatation options. The Full Float is the most stable, durable option for high traffic, large scale marinas. The Full Float can be customized to meet almost any loading and freeboard requirements. The Pontoon Float and Poly-Tub Float are also options for floatation on your floating marina.

Fixed marinas provide consistent marina pier heights regardless of water fluctuation. Gator aluminum pier sections can span 20 feet on pile centers, minimizing the cost of piles and pile driving. Maximize the life of your fixed marina supports by choosing TimberGuard™ or UltraComposite™ piles.
Your marina's needs may require a combination of a fixed and a floating system. If your dock system layout is catering to many different vessel types or sizes, section your marina into smaller dock systems built specifically to your client's needs.
The typical marina caters to large sailboats, catamarans, and yachts. Gator's designers have built marinas for these common vessels but have also built specialized marinas for sailing teams, houseboats, personal watercraft, and other specialized boating.
