Large Work Deck

DiveDock provides a 16' x 20' flat work deck. This exceeds boats costing over four times the price of DiveDock.  Combine this capability with its highway portability for rapid deployment and DiveDock stands alone. The patent-pending folding deck system creates a 16' beam in the water yet folds to only 8' on land for easy transport over the road without special permitting. On the water there  is plenty of room to stage surface air systems, air tanks, generators, compressors, sonar workstation, tow fish reel —all without sacrificing the ability to move about safely on deck to get work done quickly and efficiently.   

No Trailer!

Connect DiveDock  to your standard pickup truck receiver and go. There is no trailer. DiveDock is equipped with built-in highway-rated  wheels, brakes, and suspension, eliminating  the need for a separate trailer. The patent-pending remote-controlled wheels are raised from the water once afloat.  This allows DiveDock to be launched and retrieved at different locations by different vehicles. It is not necessary to return to the original launch location to bring DiveDock ashore.  Special highway permits are not required and DiveDock complies with all USDOT trailer registration requirements. 

DiverLift®  Elevator

Getting in and out of the water has never been easier. DiverLift® is a fully-submersible platform located at the bow to raise divers, victims, evidence, and material from the water. The 8'-wide patent-pending remote-controlled elevator can raise up to 1,500 pounds. Divers and crew expend less energy handling heavy gear and materials. Divers no longer need to climb ladders. Air tanks, helmets, and gear can be  removed  by divers from a comfortable seated position on the DiverLift.  Injury or drowning victims can be brought from the water safely in a flat, neutral position.  

Crane-Ready Water Access (Moon Pool)

A 4' x 4' opening in the workdeck midship provides direct access to the water. Davits  and cranes can be used to deploy and recover heavy objects such as mooring blocks, pipe and cable.  The midship location of the moon pool provides greater stability compared  to boats that must lift heavy objects over the gunwale or bow.  DiveDock also provides six feet of open deck around  the moon pool to help crew members guide and control the movement of heavy material.

Customizable Cabin

The DiveDock cabin was designed to provide maximum flexibility to meet crew member requirements. The cabin can be customized with rigid or flexible enclosures for inclement weather. A sonar workstation can be installed along with black-out shades to block ambient light from the operator's display. A platform located aft provides a convenient location to deploy a tow fish reel keeping the deck uncluttered yet accessible.  

Launch  Site Flexibility

DiveDock can be  launched from primitive water access locations previously inaccessible using normal trailers. The wheel boxes can be independently raised and lowered to adjust ground clearance.  This allows DiveDock to compensate for difficult slopes and obstacles encountered at otherwise impossible launch points. This capability can significantly reduce the travel time needed to reach  the target  location by towing and launching closer to the worksite rather than traveling longer distances over water.
