Crafting Timeless Docks Since 1956

At Martin Docks, we believe that a dock is more than just a structure – it’s a lifestyle. Established in 1956, we have been dedicated to building docks that stand the test of time, providing a platform for your unique lakefront lifestyle. Our commitment to quality craftsmanship and premium materials ensures that every Martin Dock is a testament to durability and longevity. 

Original Martin Boathouse Dock: A waterfront haven exuding timeless charm and functional design


Our roots trace back to G.H. Martin, who after serving his country in WWII, assisted in the construction of Lake Lanier as a welder. During his time as a welder, G.H. built a strong reputation for himself as a skilled tradesman with keen craftsmanship.

In 1956, after the completion of the Buford Dam, G.H. was sought out by Mr. J.D. Jewell to build the first private boat house on Lake Lanier. Many years thereafter, as Lake Lanier started to fill-in and lakefront property started to develop, G.H.’s entrepreneurial drive led him to establish Martin Docks, North Georgia’s oldest dock builder and a pioneer in the boat dock industry. Three generations later, and over 5,000+ docks built, Martin Docks continues the tradition of crafting timeless boat docks throughout the Southeast.

From our humble beginnings, we’ve continuously strived to raise the bar on our product offerings and service delivery excellence. Today, we’re proud to be the leading full-service lakefront provider in North Georgia and surrounding areas, offering a comprehensive list of solutions to enhance our customers’ lakefront experience. 

If you’re in the market for a new boat dock, boat lift, PWC port, rip rap & steps, or are interested in learning about our boat dock remodeling, dock and lift repair service, or Dock Watch program, we encourage you to pass by our facility or contact us to learn more. 

We stand by our work with pride and look-forward to welcoming you to the Martin Docks family.
