AccuDock is a global leader in design and manufacturing of floating docks for all markets from residential to commercial. AccuDock fabricates their unique docks with Wolf Serenity Decking. Since our relationship began in 2015, AccuDock has outfitted their docks with over one million feet of decking! We sat down with the AccuDock Team to learn more about their process and what makes their docks stand out above the rest.
Tell us about the inception of AccuDock.
Founder, John Harrison, has been around the water his whole life and spent the 15 years prior to AccuDock managing absentee owner private yachts in South Florida. Looking for a change, and using his day-to-day experiences as motivation, he realized the need for floating work platforms. The initial thought was simple – small single floating dock sections to provide in-water maintenance on boats. John listened to customers and realized the need for alternative floating dock applications in other areas like kayaking, canoeing, and rowing. Residential projects opened the doors to commercial projects, and before long the idea of only servicing the tri-county area grew into larger international shipments. AccuDock was officially opened on April 1st, 2007.

We are extremely diverse in what type of applications we can offer for our floating docks and welcome custom projects. The customization we offer provides us with a real advantage because we can provide the best solution for the customer’s needs instead of just a solution. Our focus is always customer satisfaction.

Do you have standard styles of docks or are they mostly custom?
There are stock items that are readily available such as our work floats and low-profile docks. We also have a variety of kayak and paddle sport packages that are very popular. However, the majority of our residential and commercial projects require custom specifications to meet the customer’s needs.
