two options: the Wahoo CAT3 or Wahoo CAT5
stronger than the rest or strongest on the market

One of the first decisions you’ll make when planning your new Wahoo dock is whether you want the CAT3™ or CAT5™.

Both of these Wahoo aluminum dock options combine premium materials and custom components with world-class engineering and state-of-the-art welding, creating boat docks absolutely unparalleled for strength and beauty. However, there are some key differences in the two models that will help you determine which Wahoo Dock is right for you.

Both the CAT3™ and CAT5™ models of Wahoo Docks are expertly engineered using marine-grade 6061-T6 aluminum with patented corner extrusions. Both the CAT 5 and the CAT 3 incorporate our patented noise-reduction bushings into the metal contact points.

Yet, there is no other aluminum floating dock that comes close to the CAT5 in terms of both features and quality. Want the top of the line aluminum boat dock? If you want a top-of-the-line boat dock, our CAT 5 is the clear choice. The CAT 5 can handle severe environmental conditions.

The CAT5 is the industry leader among aluminum docks. It features more patented dock components, more aluminum and other material where it’s needed for strength and stiffness, and an all-around supreme finish that makes it feel more hand-crafted and custom than any other dock on the market.
