Teak Swim Platform

Just listed 3 new ones on eBay for $150 a pop. They have never been installed.
They sell for nearly $900 if you order one.

Hope somebody can use. They don’t fit my boat.

    Just checked on EBay and didn’t see them. Post them here and I’ll take all three if they’re as advertised.

    What boats are they for?
  • oldjeepoldjeep Posts: 2,994 Mega Baller
    WHo knows why that link isn't working now. Try this one - or just search for teak platform where the price = 150. Not that hard to find
    3 platforms

    Wow, that is a great price. I will measure my old one tonight and see if the dimensions are close.

    Guessing those are all for different vintage Nautiques. The bottom 2 look like they are for the NWZ was it ‘90-‘96?
  • BrennanKMNBrennanKMN Posts: 363 Crazy Baller
    I would have bought that in an instant if it would fit a TSC3 Nautique.
    I miss my teak platform. One of the things I really like about the new MC is they still offer teak.

    They make good coffee tables;) Too much work to have on a boat

    Well, this one is going to become a wine rack/bar for my wife's xmas present. Been looking for a while for a decent one for the project

    @oldjeep some work maybe but after the work they look great again. My fiberglass (or whatever composition it is) one looks like crap what with the pad cracking and various scratches. No amount of labor will help the pad, it'll take $$ and more labor. Wish I had a teak platform for my '08 196.

    Heat gun, adhesive remover and about $100 worth of seadek or gatorstep can fix up a glass platform quick. Disassembling and reparing rotted wood takes a lot longer. But that's why there are choices;).

    @LeonL Couldn't agree more.
    I have a black 196 so teak really pops on it too.
    I have considered reaching out to the CCF guy who custom makes teak platforms. $380 bucks isn't too bad IMO.

    Maybe someday...

    I think the teak platforms look way better than the fiberglass ones. Maybe I’m bias because I’ve had to repair and paint too many fiberglass ones. Even still the teak platform makes the boat stand out more, IMO.

    @oldjeep would you post some pics when you get done with the wine rack/bar project. That’s an awesome idea and I’d like to see it.

    An interesting story came with the platform. Apparently they had been built for a lawyer who was suing one of the big boat mfg over a carbon monoxide related death. The platform has recessed plexi plates on the bottom to cover the holes in the platform. The platforms have just been sitting around in the lawyers office for years. Nice work, but they have to come off for my project.

    Interesting and sad at the same time. Another reason for escalating boat prices.

    There was a girl a few years ago in Central Texas area that drown that was believed to have past out and drown on a platform due to carbon monoxide. Don't remember the details.

    I replaced my fiberglass platform with teak on my 2008 Natique for $350 because the failed SeaDeck was going to cost me $450 to replace. Fortunately Teak Work is located close to me. So, shipping was not a issue. Teak World used to supply every platform for Correct Craft, Master Craft, Sea Ray and more.

    As a winter project a few years ago I built a teak platform for my 2010 Nautique 200. I like it alot more than the fiberglass platforms.

    I still don't understand why all manufactures don't offer teak platforms.
