The swimming pontoon ECO is a long-term cost-effective solution that suits perfectly as a swimming pontoon or boat pontoon for home and is ideal for beaches of inland waterways.
Using standard modules, you can create a swimming pontoon with a suitable length, shape and load capacity (see the examples below). You can successfully use the floats under a floating sauna or a floating platform. An existing pontoon can be extended later in length and width.
When planning a swimming pontoon ECO, we recommend reading these useful articles:
- Boat Pontoons – 3 important things to consider when choosing a pontoon;
- Location of the pontoon – 6 factors of nature to assess;
The standard width of the swimming pontoon ECO is 2 m and the standard lengths are 4 m, 5 m and 6 m.
ECO pontoons can be placed perpendicular or longitudinal to the shore, and only a proper ground support is enough to secure a pontoon with one module. Longer structures are anchored with concrete anchors and fastening chains, fastening posts or fastening diagonals. (We recommend that you leave the anchoring to us, as special equipment is required for the safe installation of heavy anchors).

The strong load-bearing structure is made of deep-impregnated softwood and the decking is profiled to avoid sliding. Also, the wood materials used are sorted by strength and finger-jointed, which guarantee top-notch quality and durability.
All metal parts have been made resistant to environmental impacts with hot-dip galvanizing.
The ECO 400 l plastic floats are manufactured using rotational molding, making them resistant to UV rays, ice and hits from rocks. Floats are empty inside, making them light and easy to handle. The floats have a very low draft and are suitable for waterways with fluctuating water levels or on swampy soil.
Thanks to its compact size, it’s easy to transport the swimming pontoon yourself. The installation can be ordered from us, or you can do it quite easily by yourself (also read the post: “Floating pontoon – do you build it yourself or buy a ready-made solution?”). In the video you can see how ECO transport and installation works:
A range of accessories are available, including side decking, ladders, railings, fenders, mooring rings, lighting posts and a lifebuoy set. You can make your pontoon especially exclusive with noble wood decking or LED-lit bollards. You will find inspiration in the article “Home pier accessories – 6 products to consider”.
Swimming pontoon ECO maintenance
For the winter, we recommend the swimming pontoon ECO to be dismantled, as freezing may damage the structure of the product. However, you know the ice situation and average water level of the future location the best, so write or call us, and we’ll give you advice on what you should do.
We have gathered all other questions related to pontoon maintenance in the guide “How to properly maintain pontoons?”.
