We finally got our platform on and it was a big hit for the Labor Day weekend.   It really made a huge difference for our family and friends.  I took shipment on the platform in May but had to put it in the garage until we could get the boat out from the lakes being flooded.   A few things... My template was almost spot on and only used a small drum sanding to finish fit in 10 minutes!  Was super excited about that great job!   All of the parts need were in the box. The design of the ladder opening and the P-handle are perfect and sturdy!  I was worried about the center supports struts being a little short but found a good spot I felt would do well.  A little shocking surprise drilling the bottom lag screws with measured bit... My hull was very thin in the fiberglass as I put 4 holes thru under the water line.  I recovered with stainless 1/4" x 2 1/2" bolts and the fender washers from Ace Hardware.  I cut an 8" square 3/4"plywood and coated with 5200. Then bolted all the way thru hull and plywood.    Overall my install time was 4 hours with the help of one person and a little forklift. Not bad!
Thanks for the great product,

Attached are a few pictures of the swim platform installed. Everything turned out perfect. We have been using this for the past 3-4 weeks. The install was easy. This makes a great addition the my boat. I wish I would have done this years ago.

Overall the install took about 6 hours. Your product matched the gel coat perfectly. We are very impressed with the quality, design and workmanship of this platform and it was a big hit with the kids on Memorial Day.

We have a model year 2004 Seaswirl Striper 2901. The swim platform you custom built for us is exactly what we wanted. It really gives the boat a "finished" look. We can now sit on the back of the boat when we are in a slip, we feel it added over 3 feet of usable space to the boat. I am sending pictures of the finished installation for you to add to your web page. I hope the pictures convince other Striper 2901 owners to add your swim platform to their boat so they will have the added enjoyment that we have.

Hi Scott,
We just wanted to thank you for everything.  The swimplatform is amazing – it adds so much room and is great for at the dock or out on the water! I also want to say your entire crew did an amazing job.  We ran into a small issue during the installation, and you guys helped us through the entire way.  As you can see my 2 year old daughter loves jumping off!
Thanks for everything,

Here are some pics of our new platform. I wish I had better party pictures, but the weather in Maine this year has not been very cooperative. None the less, WE LOVE IT. You guys build a great product and I’m passing on your information to anyone who will lend me an ear.

Here are a few photos of my 2001 Larson 23' Escape.  The platform seems like it has doubled our boat size and is perfect for putting on the wakeboard or skis.  Thanks!

Hi, I am email you to let you know that my family and I are very pleased with the service received from your company, and very satisfied with our new swim platform.  I love the shape and look of the platform, and it adds convenience and value to our boat. Installation was about half a day taking it easy, and the instructions received made it a breeze to install.
Thank you so much for everything,

p.s. several people have come up and asked about the platform,
at gas stations and on the water!!!
Thanks for the great product, the quality is second to none and the fit and finish perfect.  Installation was a breeze and I love the added function it gives the boat.
Attached are pictures, feel free to use them as you wish to advertise or forward to prospective buyers.

We have a 2000 Glastron GX225. Because the outdrive sticks out the back of the boat so far, we were considering selling but couldn't find anything used without the same problem. New was not an option. With 2 small kids, the platform was the perfect solution. I installed it with 2 helpers in about 2 hours. I couldn't believe how good it looks and the fit. Absolutely perfect. I've always thought that if you do one thing for a living, do it well. The people at Swim Platforms are a great example of that.
Thank you

We couldn't be happier with our recent swim platform addition this summer.  It was a straight foward install, looks great, and gave us just what we were hoping for.  We have two small kids and it made a huge difference getting them close to, and in and out of, the water.  We don't have to worry about the outdrive being right in the way so much either. 
Attached are some photos from the summer.  Our boat is a 1995 Crownline 202BR.  The yellow LPX in the background is my brother’s.  Is there any way he can avoid the "up-charge" on the custom(yellow) color?  If so, I am positive he would order one this fall. 
Thanks again for such a great product.  We received countless compliments and inquiries about it and have highly recommended your company.

I’m very late sending this note, but wanted you to know how much we enjoy our swim platform.  It’s like having a deck on the back of the house.

Scott, thanks for everything. I hope you can use these before and after photos. Our boat is a 2006 Bayliner 195 Classic. As you can see from the before photo, the old platform was narrow and had only one step. Boarding from the water was very difficult and dangerous. Our new platform is very spacious and has a three step ladder that extends deep into the water. The outdrive is also covered, making a safe area for our grandchildren. We love our new platform,and have recommended to many of our friends. Thanks again for a great product.

I had the platform installed professionally by JB Marine in Sicamous, British Columbia Canada.  They did a great job and it was what we needed for the boat.  It made putting on ski's and the wakeboard so easy.  Getting in and out of the boat was allot easier with the bigger ladder and are family allot safer.  I recommend these swim platforms to anyone without a swim platform on the back of their boat, you will not be disappointed at all with the purchase.  The quality and craftsman ship on the platform was great. These guys were great to deal with any of your questions or concerns about installation or shipping.

Hello guys,
Well here is the finished product…Install went fine, had to invest in a 24” extension to put swivel socket on to hold nuts on the inside…that helped a lot…Platform looks great and fit great, no issues during fit-up.  Everything arrived in good condition, no damage.  The boat really takes on a whole new feel out in the water having the extra room in the back to relax and enjoy those river days.  Appreciate yaw producing a genuine product that is top notch on quality and workmanship.  We spend a lot of time on the water and this platform just makes that time even more enjoyable, thank you.

Earlier this year I ordered a swim platform from and had it installed at my local boat shop. WOW! This item has done nothing but increase the usability and functionality of my boat.  It looks factory designed and installed.  The quality and workmanship of this platform is above and beyond reproach.  I ordered the color matched platform with the underside ladder.  My boat is now easier and SAFER to get in and out of, which in my mind is TOTALLY worth the cost.  Plus it adds many square feet of usable space at the rear of the boat.  I just cannot say enough about this platform and what it has done for my boat and for my guests that I invite out with me.  I have had many people comment and ask me about this platform.  Whether I'm at the fuel station, boat ramp, or on the lake, I get many compliments and inquiries about it constantly.  I always have much to tell them about this product and go so far as to give them the website address so they may research the product on their own.  I even had people comment to me that I should be selling them!  But that is how much I believe in this product.  There is really no feasible reason that I can conclude as to not having one of these platforms on your boat.  This is by FAR the best addition to my boat that I have invested in.  I have included a few photos of this awesome product.

Just wanted to comment on the platform we just purchased. We absolutely love the platform. The installation was pretty Thanks for your assistance with my swim platform.  It makes boarding much easier in a slip, among other advantages.

It has been a year since I bought one of your platforms.  I just got the boat out of storage for the year and it made me remember how awesome your products are.  It has completely changed the way we use the boat.  The swim platform is very high quality, and looks great.  It was easy to install and your customer service is top notch!  I would say it is the best improvement I have made to the boat, and dollar for dollar a great way to add useable space to your boat.  I tell everyone I see about it and tell them to go buy one!!  Thank you so much, and I look forward to many years of fun our swim platform!!
Thanks again,
