For Uncompromising Beauty and Durability

The Strongest Boat Dock Money Can Buy

more aluminum & patented parts than other available docks

Your dock purchase is a pretty big investment. Don’t settle for a lower-quality Wahoo dock look-alike… No other aluminum dock you will find has the same aluminum thickness, strength, and density Wahoo uses or the meticulously engineered, painstakingly designed, and PATENTED dock components and parts.

The same Engineers who founded Wahoo Docks and operate it still, are the ones who carefully crafted – from conception to production – every element of the Wahoo CAT3™ and CAT5™. Both these docks share some similar features and specifications but the CAT5 is the clear industry leader in aluminum boat docks available today.

Although these two aluminum dock types are different in some regards, there are some things you can rely on, no matter which model you choose.

Both the CAT3™ and CAT5™ models of Wahoo Docks are expertly engineered using marine-grade 6061-T6 aluminum with patented* corner extrusions. Both the CAT 5 and the CAT 3 incorporate our patented* noise-reduction bushings into the metal contact points. There are a host of design and color options available with every Wahoo Dock, including more than 8 decking choices, over 20 roof colors, and unlimited layout designs! Every dock we make is finished with the finest attention to detail, and we offer a warranty that is unparalleled. You can be confident that your Wahoo Dock will be built with precision and care — AND it will look brand new for many years to come! *Patent Information: US7806630, US8157480, US8668407US20140123588, US8,276,344

The CAT5™

Click on any image to view larger and/or slideshow

Our CAT 5™ is the industry leader in aluminum boat docks. It features more patented dock components, more material where it’s needed for strength and stiffness, and an all-around supreme finish that makes it feel more hand-crafted and custom than any other dock on the market.

No other aluminum floating boat dock even compares to our CAT 5 dock. If you want a top-of-the-line boat dock, our CAT 5 is the clear choice. The CAT 5 can handle severe environmental conditions.

Strongest Boat Dock Choice

The CAT5 features a beefy 9” aluminum mainframe with interlocking connections that dovetail together to provide extra strength that extends far beyond just the weld points. The 9” channel incorporates a feature that supports the decking load without relying on welds for strength. Additionally, welded corners and intermediate receivers provide integral fastening for dock roof poles, which gives our docks extra stiffness without having to use unsightly diagonal bracing. We also utilize a 6″ channel in the lower frame that provides even more bracing for added strength. This ensures dock weight load is equally distributed, further minimizing stress on the weld points and creating an incredibly stiff dock structure.

Maximum Flotation

Because the CAT5 has more metal in its framework to create a stiffer dock, it uses more standard flotation than other docks to support the extra weight and because the stiffness of the dock allows it to support the extra flotation. Besides this additional buoyancy, the extra dock floats contribute to the dock’s unique stability and strength.

Extra Design Options

Because it’s our luxury model, the CAT5 allows us to design some unique extras with this dock. For example, only on the CAT5 can you find DryJoist™ structural roofing underlay, which creates an upper deck that provides a dry below deck area that won’t allow water to seep through to the level below. It also allows us to overcome common design challenges such as extended roof overhangs and very tall roofs that wouldn’t be wise – or safe – with lesser docks.
