Walcon Marine has acquired Docking Solutions Ltd, the Devon-based supplier of heavy-duty pontoons and commercial-grade bridges, from its parent company Baltic Wharf Ltd.

Docking Solutions pontoons use twin tubular steel floats braced by welded cross tubes for strength and durability, mounted in a catamaran configuration.

They can be fabricated to almost any length and size and in high-freeboard configurations.


“We are very pleased that Colin Bower and the Docking Solutions product range have joined Walcon Marine,” said James Walters, Walcon Marine MD. “The heavy-duty pontoons designed and produced by Docking Solutions extend our product range and allow us to offer more cost-effective solutions to the commercial and governmental sectors, as well as sturdy alternatives for providers of leisure berthing facilities with locations that are exposed or in high-traffic positions.”

He added: “We look forward to introducing our client base to these high quality, long-lasting products as part of an enhanced Walcon offering.”

Colin Bower, Docking Solutions MD, added, “Over the past 25 years we have sold our pontoons to a wide range of satisfied customers. Becoming part of Walcon marks the start of a new era for the brand and we anticipate that Docking Solutions’ bridges and pontoons will reach new markets and become an even more common sight in harbours around the UK and abroad.”

Docking Solutions’ customers include harbour and port authorities, search and rescue services and the MoD, as well as marinas serving leisure users.
