Floatem Poles – Guide Pole System for Trailered Boats

No more struggling to launch or recover your boat

Have you ever been frustrated trying to load your boat on to the trailer? You’re all lined up to recover your boat and a wake or gust of wind leaves you beside your trailer!

These innovative new boat accessories actually extend as you enter the water, the deeper you get the more they extend, always visible above the waterline. They protect and guide your boat on and off the trailer, reducing the effect of wind, wake and currents.

Floatem Poles fit most trailer and boat combinations and come complete with all the necessary hardware and a pair of guide cushions, in a choice of colours, black, navy blue or day glow orange.


No special tools required! Easy bolt on fitting that requires no drilling or cutting.

For maximum mounting flexibility, high strength mounting brackets can attach the poles above or below the trailer frame.

The square box section of the poles, fastened to the square box section or channel of the trailer will always remain upright, so no twisting or skewing when knocked. The round sleeves roll on the uprights as your boat passes them, therefore less chance of damaging your craft.

Slightly angled, wider at the top, allows the passage of boat fixtures, wakeboard towers and cleats with ease.


Easy to fit and strong, Floatem poles guide and centre your boat on to the trailer with ease.
They fit trailer frames up to 65mm (2.5″) wide x 100mm (4″) high, with up to 400mm (16″) of adjustment on each side ensuring a custom fit on most boat and trailer combinations.

Because of their low profile, they look neat on the road. An added feature, once you have launched your boat, is they serve as marker poles when manoeuvring an empty trailer around the boatyard, allowing you and others to see the corners of the trailer.

Easy to use!

The quick and easy way to centre your boat and trailer. Make Single handed launch and recovery a breeze!

Floatem Poles are low profile telescopic guide / docking poles that extend as you enter the water, staying above the rubbing strip of the boat.
On the road they sit at 980mm (38″) tall but extend up to 1600mm (63″ max) as they enter the water

Floatem poles provide an essential visual aid when reversing down the boat ramp to launch or recover your boat.
