When it comes to the top of Technomarine’s 200 Series line, think of System 285 as a football linebacker—strong and durable enough to take on heavy linemen, but agile and flexible enough to play any position on the field.
An advanced docking solution, System 285 is completely flexible and versatile for reconfiguration or expansion. It is ideal for berthing big boats longer than 80 feet—like today’s Mega Yachts and Super Yachts, measuring in at up to 200 feet. Those are some hefty guys to accommodate.
The system’s strength and durability comes from its strong but lightweight marine-grade aluminum alloy structure and salt-water-resistant components and hardware. With a choice of strong or heavy-duty load bearing capacities, it’s designed to withstand high lateral impact loads—like stopping a running back short of the goal line. Seriously, it’s impact resistant up to a 240-ton boat as well as built to withstand Category 3 hurricanes.
Space to breathe. The system has top and lateral railings that allow for movable cleats, bollards, and marine extrusions. Unlike drilling into concrete docks, moorings can be easily repositioned for ample, customized dock spacing between Mega-yachts. While our hefty neighbors can be buddies, they shouldn’t feel the need to share their Grey-Poupon.
A totally integrated system, it’s compatible with all 200 Series decking, fenders, fingers and accessories. The system also features a wake attenuator for passing boat traffic. And like pumping iron at the gym, it employs a 24-inch-diameter steel pile anchoring system.
Fast becoming a fan favorite of big boat marinas, System 285 has been installed all over the world from Oman to Miami, from New Jersey to Santa Marta in Columbia.
With the perfect balance of strength and flexibility, it’s a top pick for Mega-yacht marinas. More durable than concrete and able to float on water. Built to last, yet cost-effective. Strong and flexible. Lightweight but heavy-duty. Muscle with finesse. Those are game-changing combinations.
