Our buying guide reviews the best deck boxes on the market so you can choose the right box for your boat. Below is a list of features which are included on most deck boxes and will help you to choose a suitable one for your boat.
Deck boxes are available in many sizes. It is a good idea to measure the area of your boat which you intent to put the box on, and then look for a box which fits comfortably in that space. For storage of small tools or accessories, a compact box will be suitable. If you intend to store fishing rods, poles, or any long items you may need a box at least 6ft in length.
Fiberglass is a common material used for good quality deck boxes. For boxes which are multi-purposed and can be used as seats, smooth, cushioned lids will make for a more comfortable perch. Rubbermaid plastics and polyethylene are cheaper alternative to fiber glass but still provides a good amount of protection for your items.
Deck boxes are likely to be regularly exposed to direct sunlight so choosing one which is UV resistant will boost longevity. Some boxes have a UV gel coat finish for further protection from the sun. Double wall construction provides a less-penetrable layer to keep water out of the box and maximize durability.
If you intend to use your dock box to store valuable equipment, a lockable attachment is a useful feature to look out for.
