New Zealand marine company Balex Marine showcased a brand new product, the Balex Dock, at the Auckland On Water Boatshow in Auckland New Zealand.
Daniel Given, the New Zealand entrepreneur and managing director of Balex Marine saw the Balex Dock as a key addition to the Balex product lineup.
“Our core mission is to make boating more accessible and enable people to get out on the water easily. The Balex Dock is a customised floating dock solution that will allow people to safely launch and retrieve their boat on the waterways, lakes and marinas” says Daniel.
“In New Zealand, many people struggle to store their trailer boats and don’t want the maintenance issues and costs associated with leaving them in the water. Launching and retrieving a boat onto a standard floating dock can be tricky. The Balex Dock enables people to use a floating dock at the touch of a button.”
Recognising this key opportunity, Given started working with the team to build a dock solution that would simplify the launch and retrieval onto floating docks. This complete system is made from marine grade materials and is customizable to the boat and storage requirements of each individual customer.
