Safe Water Access Is Only A Launch Away

Published: Monday, April 9, 2018

The YAKport is a personal paddle sport launch providing a safe and stable cradle for boarding and unloading your personal vessel. Simply place your favorite paddle sport vessel on the YAKport and enjoy a sure footed, stable entry right above the water level. Then, with very little effort, pull yourself into the water for a safe launch. Once your paddling session is over, pull right back onto the YAKport and enjoy the same stability and convenience while getting out of the water.

The YAKport works with most kayaks, paddleboards, and canoes. Its versatility allows it to be easily connected to both floating and fixed docks. It is also compatible with both 1000 and 2000 Series Connect-A-Dock systems. The unit is available in five colors — light gray, dark gray, tan, blue, and black — for convenience in matching your current dock system or kayak.

Various accessories are available, such as an Over Head Assist Bar, which attaches to the top of the YAKport and assists with entry and exit of your kayak. Optional short or long Grab Bars are also available to assist in easy entry and exit of the launch.

The YAKport has built-in UV protection and is environmentally friendly. The main unit is made of virgin polyethylene, is saltwater safe, and all parts are made in the USA!

All parts come with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty. Overall dimensions of the YAKport are 60”x48”x20” and it weighs 99 lbs. It will handle paddle sport vessels up to 34” wide.

For more information or to order, go to or call (833) 424-0876. The YAKport is also available through all Connect-A-Dock dealers and through Menards stores.
