Types of Boat Doors
Access Doors: These are the most common and versatile ways to add access to any area of your boat.
Console Doors: Console doors are commonly found on center console boats and allow access to the helm/ console. These doors can vary in style and size to match the needs of each boat.
Transom Doors: The transom is the area back section of the boat hull, where outboard motors are mounted. A door in the transom area makes it easy to board and exit the boat or gain access to the swim platform. They are usually on larger boats or pontoon boats.
Deck Hatches: Deck hatches are essentially heavy-duty, better-supported boat doors. Since they are often installed on high-traffic areas like fishing platforms or boat decks, they are designed to hold weight and be walked on.
Wind block Doors: These doors are most common on dual console boats, like ski boats, or catamarans. They block the wind and elements from reaching the seating area. Wind block doors are also commonly referred to as walkthru doors.
Livewell lids: Livewell lids allow access to the bait tank, livewell or bait well and are usually secured to the boat hull with butt hinges. These are easy to replace but since there are so many options it's best to call us so we can find the perfect replacement lid for your boat.
Deck Plates: Usually round and threaded, they are great ways to add a small access area to almost any section of your boat. However, they are most often seen on the boat deck.
