4-Step Gunwale-Mount Ladder

Product Overview

Stainless steel gunwale-mounted ladders are a secure, strong, removable boarding system.

Handrails have a 180° bend and rise 5" above the deck to provide secure handholds, so boarding your boat becomes more like climbing out of a swimming pool.

Two buttons in the bottom of the handrails slide into a pair of included keyhole mounts with secure retainer clips. The cushioned standoffs can be cut to fit hull contours.

The bottom two steps of these ladders fold up and clip flush against the ladder for compact storage. And they are made of 304 stainless steel tubing, to withstand the saltwater boating environment.
