1987 280 Voyager Swim Platform

Swim platform on my 1987 280 Voyager was squishy, so I replaced it. It turned out amazing.
Used swimplatforms.com.

Looks great, they do a fantastic job. I have a buddy with a 37 Maxxum and they did an extended one for him and it looks factory.

They do good work, I've installed a few. Wish they had specs for a 3807 but I've checked and they don't. They'll custom make from a supplied pattern but the $ sucks right now. Looks like something else I'll have to make myself. Just want something larger but I can live with it for now.

She looks sweet. :down:

Here are pictures in the water. Swim platform is a little low, close to water and large septet to back cockpit. Adds a little weight to the rear as well. Great swim platform, very glad I got it down.

Nice job. Looks good on the boat and swim platforms do add function to any boat.

That looks great! My platform has some damage and a new, larger platform would make a great upgrade. I have a request for quote in with SwimPlatform.com now.
