Choose the Dock Layout that Fits Your Lifestyle

When you build a dock at the Lake of the Ozarks there is a lot to consider. Deciding how you want to use your dock and your lifestyle will dictate the layout of your new dock. Are you are using your dock to swim and entertain or do you use your dock to fish and house your boats? These are the things you need to decide and today, your favorite dock builders at the Lake of the Ozarks would like to provide you with a few layouts to consider when deciding how to build your new dock.


Platform docks are ideal for fishing, swimming, and lounging. While the platform dock may be the most simple layout, it can be further enhanced by the many accessories. Install a railing for safety, add a roof for shade and protection, attach a cleat for boat mooring, or even mount a diving board. Simple layouts can still be elegant in design.

Single Slip

A slip is an opening in the dock where a boat can be securely stored with protection on three sides. If you only own one watercraft, you may desire a dock with a single built-in slip. Add a lift to remove your boat from the water during the winter season and install a roof for protection from rain, snow, and harmful UV rays. The single slip boat dock is the perfect solution for storing a boat year-round.

Double Slip

Whether you already own two boats or plan to expand your fleet, you may opt for a floating dock with two boat slips. They are the most common layout for our residential docks at the Lake of the Ozarks and often times include an upper deck for lounging and additional storage.

PWC Side Slip

If you own both a boat and a personal watercraft (PWC), like a jet ski, then a dock with a side slip may be the best option for you. A side slip offers the same level of protection for your watercraft as a standard slip, while retaining as much usable deck space as possible.

Custom Layout

One Source Services can customize your dock to meet your lifestyle. Whether you want multiple boat slips of varying sizes or a fully enclosed floating structure, we can build the dock of your dreams. Let our industry-expert dealers collaborate with you to create a dock that is unique in appearance and the envy of everyone on the water.

Commercial Layout

Even commercial layouts are fully customizable with the most common styles being E-Shaped or Fishbone. Both of these slip styles can be altered to fit small speed boats or large yachts. Commercial layouts can also include rows of lifts for personal watercraft. Our team of designers will help create a layout that is suitable for any commercial application.
