Bellingham Marine received praise for the encapsulated docking system it built for the Miami International Boat Show.

Bellingham Marine received high praise for the portable floating timber dock system it provided to the Miami International Boat Show, which took place for the first time in its 75-year history at Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin.

Visitors had an opportunity to experience firsthand the latest product development from Bellingham, with several commenting on the docks about how solid they felt and asking whether they were actually temporary.

“Having the new temporary Bellingham docks for our inaugural show at Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin added to the enhanced consumer and exhibitor experience we delivered while bringing a clean, easy to install and remove system to our new in-water space,” National Marine Manufacturers Association assistant show manager and sales director Larry Berryman said in a statement.

“One of the best features of these docks is that they’re 100 percent EPA-compliant and completely encapsulated — they not only look good and function perfectly, but they help us ensure we’re meeting all environmental requirements — something that’s critical to NMMA.”

Bellingham received an Innovation Award for the portable dock system from the National Marine Manufacturers Association and Boating Writers International.

The system includes a number of features that make the docks easy to install, anchor, run utilities through, remove, transport and store.

Bellingham worked closely with the NMMA in the development of the new dock system.

“This portable system is the perfect choice for individuals looking for a temporary/portable system, infrastructure for overwater venues or a dock system that can be easily removed from the water during the offseason,” Bellingham Marine general manager Mark Johnson said.

The company said the docks are designed with a high live load capacity and are rated for commercial use. The system is designed around five primary components that allow the dock modules to be connected and arranged in an infinite number of configurations, much like a set of Legos.

Movable and flexible anchorage points allow the docks to be anchored by pile or a chain system in a variety of locations. Purposeful use and placement of cleats, lifting hardware and other components make the docks easy to install, remove and stack for storage.
