When summer temps climb into the triple digits, there’s no better place to be than chillin’ on the water. If you happen to be a waterfront homeowner, you can take full advantage of a permanent dock for lounging and docking your watercraft and/or a floating dock that’s perfect for sunning and splashing around.
Whether you’re looking to complement your existing boat dock with a nearby, free-floating island that’s out of the path of watercraft coming and going, or you want a platform on the water to facilitate a safe play space for little swimmers, we can help!
The Otter Island Swim Raft from Wave Armor offers a practical and fun solution that’s sure to become your favorite lazy summer hangout.
So what can you expect from this deluxe, pontoon-style float? Let’s find out!
Easy-to-Assemble Floating Dock
This 8′ x 10′ floating platform is a breeze to assemble, with simple instructions and just a few parts that need to be attached. The platform is made from resilient, weatherproof, roto-molded polyurethane, and the foam-filled body won’t dent or crumple with play.
Although the platform is a solid 300 pounds, it includes comfortable, molded-in handles around the bottom of the raft that make it easy to carry on and off the water, ideally with one person at each corner.
A Safe Play Space Away from Your Boat Dock
Safety is a paramount concern for parents, and this thoughtfully designed floating dock addresses every possible hazard. The non-slip surface helps prevent sliding around, even when wet, and rounded corners won’t scrape your skin when you’re getting on and off the platform. The folding aluminum ladder is also rounded and features plastic caps on all endpoints for protection.
The anchor is sold separately, but it can easily be attached to four molded-in anchor points on the raft’s bottom to prevent drift on the water. Bungee-style attachments ensure gentle anchoring.
The Otter Island Swim Raft has a capacity of up to 3,000 pounds and is virtually unsinkable, ensuring a safe and fun environment for several children and/or adults to use as a home base while swimming.
Lounge Opportunities for the Whole Family
Whether you’re worried about letting kids play on and around your permanent dock as boats and personal watercraft are coming and going, or you don’t have a boat dock, and you want to provide a safe, high-visibility space for kids to play on the water, Otter Island Swim Rafts offer the perfect solution. Of course, they’re also great for teens and adults looking to swim or lounge on a floating platform.
Two multi-angle backrests can be locked into three different positions for sitting or sunning, and a pop-up table in between features beverage holders for each seat. Both the table and backrests nest flush in the raft surface when they are not in use. They are made from the same non-slip surface as the rest of the raft.
You’ll also appreciate storage space beneath the backrests, which is perfect for small items like goggles, snorkels, and even snacks.
