Best Boat Dock Dealer in Big Spirit Lake and Okoboji of Iowa

Best Dealers and Companies for Aluminum Powder-Coated DIY Boat Docks in Iowa

Donaldson Docks was founded in 1961 by Glen Donaldson, a blacksmith who lived on Big Spirit Lake of Iowa. Donaldson tired of the constant damage done to traditional plank-and-post docks by wind storms, which arose on this large body of water often. In response to this challenge, Donaldson designed and constructed a dock of redwood and steel that could withstand the heavy storms.

Today’s docks are constructed using lightweight, exceptionally durable aluminum platforms and steel poles & hardware. Each dock is custom fabricated to order in Estherville, Iowa by skilled machinists and welders. Innovative designed brackets, hardware, and cross bracing guarantee that your dock will endure the whole summer through. The aluminum platforms and benches are powder coated to simulate a natural wood grained dock. Powder Coating is much thicker than paint and is applied using a magnetic charge that bonds the coating to the aluminum to ensure everlasting beauty. The four foot wide by eight foot long dock sections can be configured into many different layouts to suit any residential or commercial needs. Our docks are designed to easily be installed by the Do It Yourself kind of person. Also available are used, reconditioned Redwood and Cedar Docks. Donaldson Docks offers instillation, removal, and servicing of docks year after year so that you and your family can continue to enjoy the beautiful lake.
