The Royal Yachting Association Chooses EZ Dock to Help Promote Sailing
Monett, MO, USA—EZ Dock, Inc. recently announced that the company has been chosen by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) to help attract newcomers to the world of sailing. RYA’s objective was to find a modular dock system that could be used during the Southampton Boat Show to allow attendees to get up-close and personal with the sport of sailing. The Southampton Boat Show takes place from September 15th to 24th in Southampton, United Kingdom.
"This opportunity is a great fit," said Sharon Wahrmund, product manager for EZ Dock, Inc. "This demonstration will allow the RYA to dock sailboats during the boat show and allow EZ Dock to demonstrate to sailboat enthusiasts how stable, durable, and modular the EZ Dock system is. EZ Dock’s modular design made it possible to create a dock layout specifically for the exhibition, with plenty of mooring space for testing sailboats. Our unique pylon design creates the most stable modular dock system, which is perfect for an event of this type where a lot of wave movement is present from boating traffic," continued Wahrmund.
EZ Dock’s products are manufactured from a linear low-density polyethylene that is virtually maintenance free, and carry an eight-year limited warranty. EZ Dock drive-on lifts and docks utilize a patented connecting system for ease of installation and of adding additional components. EZ Dock’s patented floatation chambers and extra-heavy wall thickness provide tremendous structural integrity that is engineered to create stability on water. The hollow floatation pieces are excellent for installations where extreme environmental issues are a concern. All products are light beige in color to help prevent solar heat absorption, which results in a cooler surface in hot climates.
EZ Dock is part of the PlayPower, Inc. group, and continues to be the leading manufacturer of durable, polyethylene floating dock systems and lifts worldwide. EZ Dock is proud of its highly stable, easily installed docking systems, and of its famous EZ Port products, which pioneered the PWC lift concept.
