Step by step - find the right ladder
How many steps should my ladder have?
Rather one step extra than one too little, regardless of whether it is the ladder on the bowsprit, the transom or the stern platform. Several of our ladders have folding and telescopic parts that can be adjusted as required.
Both small and large feet can slip when they are wet. Make sure the ladder has footsteps that are comfortable to climb on and provide a safe grip. All of our ladders have flat, comfy steps with rifled surface - both safe and comfortable.
Do not miss our comfortable teak steps. They are available in several sizes, perfect to complement your ladder with. Click here for more information.
Something to hold on to
Make sure that the ladder takes you all the way up in the boat. Several of our ladder models have built-in handles that make it easier for boarding and disembarking. The models which do not have it, such as the smooth ladders in casing, can be complemented with removable handles attached to the bowsprit or the platform.
Check out our Comfort Series. Bowsprits with welded and sturdy handles. Available in several sizes.
A ladder on the stern platform
Complete the stern platform with a smooth ladder in casing or a BUT ladder with handles. A ladder in casing is easy to pull out when in the water because it is mounted underneath the platform. Another benefit is that it does not take up any space on the platform.
If you choose to mount a ladder in casing on the platform, we recommend our ladders with 3-4 steps. This gives you enough depth that greatly simplifies the climb.
Ladder on the transom
If you do not have a stern platform on the boat, it is (even more) important that there is a ladder if something would happen. Our Bathing ladders are easy to fold down when in the water and have an increased depth for easy climbing. Of course, these also work well as bathing ladders for more voluntary dipping.
Rarely a transom is straight. We have lots of ladders with adjustable struts that can be easily adapted to the boat.
