The other benefit of residential docks is that they offer the convenience of easy accessibility to your property. Your friends and family will be able to access your property easily since they will be able to park their boats more conveniently. If you also own a commercial dock, the clients will also be able to enjoy the same benefit since they will not have to worry about wasting too much time in waiting for parking space for their space since as the owner you will have made all the necessary arrangements to cater for their needs.
The other benefit of having a dock on your property is that it increases the value of your property.
