National Marine Manufacturers Association Honors EZ Dock with 2017 Innovation Award
Company’s Revolutionary EZ Launch® Residential earns the Docking and Fendering Equipment Category award
Huntersville, NC, March 3, 2017 – EZ Dock earned a coveted Innovation Award at the Miami International Boat Show as voted on by Boating Writers International. The new EZ Launch® Residential was recognized for innovation in the docking category for its unique design for helping novice and experienced kayakers get in and out of their vessel without getting their feet wet. NMMA honored EZ Dock with this award as one of just 19 winners out of 63 evaluated products.
“The EZ Launch® Residential is a beautifully simple idea creating access to paddle sports for all ages and experience levels,” said one of the judges. Ken Schober, VP of Sales for EZ Dock, added “We’re thrilled to receive recognition for this product. Much of our success as a company has been through our collaboration with our sales network on innovation and design, and this award proves that to be a winning formula.”
The patent pending EZ Launch® Residential was designed from the ground up to provide a new level of stability, security and simplicity for kayaks and canoes. This port features innovative built-in hand holds to help effortlessly pull yourself onto the port or push yourself into the water via the entries/exits on either side of the port. Its one-piece construction, integrated paddle notches and v-shaped entry make launching and docking safe, easy and dry – even as water levels change.
The EZ Launch® Residential integrates easily into both EZ Dock products and current launch setups. From old wooden docks to floating structures, the EZ Launch® Residential can connect to virtually any existing dock, regardless of its material or mooring.
