Heavy duty pontoons are intended for use in boat and yacht marinas that are protected naturally or by a breakwater, where the permitted wave height is up to 0.5 m.

Heavy duty pontoons are very stable and with high load-bearing capacity, which means they can also be used as breakwaters or floating platforms. In the latter case, for example, a shelter, a floating house or a floating sauna can be built on top.
- Standard widths of the pontoon are: 2.4 m, 3.2 m, 4.2 m.
- Standard lengths are: 9 m, 12 m, 15 m, 18 m, 20 m.
- Freeboard height is 0.49–0.7 m.
Pontoons come from the factory with dry brushed surface and without wood decking. You can buy boarding made from high-quality impregnated knot-free timber as an accessory.
For mooring, boat booms with plastic floats, mooring fingers or anchor buoys can be fitted to the pontoon.
A range of accessories are available, including wood decking, side decking, railings, ladders, fenders, bollards or mooring rings, lighting posts and a lifebuoy set. The pontoon can be made especially exclusive with noble wood decking or LED-lit bollards. Read also: “Accessories to Make Your Pontoon Feel Homey – 6 Products to Consider Installing”
Heavy duty pontoons maintenance
Heavy duty pontoons need little maintenance, but we definitely recommend to:
- clean the surface of the pontoon with a pressure washer once a year;
- to wash the decking with brooms or a pressure washer and to apply wood preservative that protects against UV once a year;
- occasionally check chain fastenings, fasteners and hinge connections;
- remove ladders and booms in autumn to avoid damage by ice.
