Custom Boat Ladders

Custom Boat Ladders – We have a lot of experience designing and building custom boat ladders for commercial dive / tour boats and for people with disabilities.

Having operated a day charter boat in the Caribbean, we know that boat ladders that work well with your boat and are also easy for your customers to use are hard to find. We have experimented with many different configurations of boat ladders and we understand how to make them as as safe and as easy to use as possible. Whether your crew or customers are wearing scuba equipment, have mobility issues or just don’t want to struggle getting into and out of the water we can make a custom boat ladder that will work for you.
We can make custom boat ladders out of stainless steel, aluminum and in certain situations, where it is warranted, we can use exotic materials such as titanium.
Custom Boat Ladders - Removeable Side Ladder

An Example of a Removable Side Custom Boat Ladder

Removable side custom boat ladders are an example of ladders designed to be put in place when it is needed and stored on the side of the boat when not in use.  The are  lightweight and easily moved from the storage position to where it is deployed.  These ladders provide easy access for most people and are capable of handling loads in excess of 400 pounds.  Custom boat ladders of these types have the following features:

  • All aluminum (or stainless steel/titanium/steel) construction for lightness and corrosion resistance.
  • The steps are 5 inches deep so they are easy on the feet
  • The steps are located 10 inches apart so that most people can easily step up to the next step without strain.
  • These ladders are quickly secured to and released from the deck with a deck bracket and quick release pins.
  • These ladders are designed to be submersed by at least 3 feet so people do not have to pull themselves up onto the first step.
  •  These ladders are two feet wide so people can easily brace themselves if the boat is moving.
  • Braces to hold the ladder away from the boat can be sized and placed to hold the ladder away from the boat at the appropriate angle.

    Heres what i dont understand you show ladders but there is no way to buy them . Wy even advertise them you morons.,

    • Dear Michael,

      Thanks for your elegant critique. Your comments have given me the opportunity to explain that we make “custom” boat ladders. We do not have any on the shelf waiting to be purchased. Anyone who would like us to build them a ladder needs to explain where and how the ladder will be used so that we can recommend and design a ladder that will meet your needs. If you want us to help you with your ladder it starts with simply sending us a message…
