Drive-on-dock means owners can avoid the hassle of launching and recovering their craft

Owners often want to keep their boats out of the water but don’t want the hassle of launching and recovering every time they want to use their craft.

For many marinas, this means installing a drive-on-dock that can also be used in areas that dry out to keep boats from settling on the mud or stones.

Tetradock has developed floating docks for ribs, jet skis, small motorboats and other craft that MD John Crane says are recognised as a perfect solution.

“What I wanted wasn’t available to the industry at a price I was prepared to pay, so I started Tetradock,” he said. “The business has grown tremendously over the last couple of years as people realise the benefits. 

“Many companies are not interested in the odd dock but we’re very happy to take on this work.”

The company is expanding and exporting to many countries including New Zealand where a contract has just been signed with an agent.

One of the Tetradock’s latest contracts is with MDL’s Torquay Marina.

“We’re able to deliver and install the docks,” explained Mr Crane. “The docks are modular and can be made to different sizes.”
