Homes with Spectacular Private Docks

May 17, 2021

Days on the water create incomparable memories between friends and family. In 2020, family activities represented the largest category of growth for boat sales and rentals across the fishing, touring, and day-cruising markets. Private docks provide flexibility, privacy, peace, and easy access to water recreation. Simply tie up and you’re already home. A private boat dock not only adds value to the home but also offers a place to dive in or sit at the edge of the water and watch the sunset.

As it gets warmer, people around the world are ready for some much-needed time on the water. Here are three spectacular homes from around the Americas featuring private docks.
