    These are pieces of equipment that are thought of as necessary but yet we do not pay them that much attention. Ever thought of the craftmanship that goes in to making a custom passerelle or boarding ladder for a superyacht. It is insane and not to mention expensive. Here is a look at a quick overview of a passerelle being made for a superyacht.

    There's a lot of experience in crane building out there. Passerelles are easy compared to their less fancy cousins like fire trucks. Imagine a passerelle doing this:

    My uncle use to drive the back of a hook and ladder in NYC. How far we've come. I've crossed to too many boats on a 2 x 12, and even boat to boat on an extension ladder. Sometimes fancy is really nice.

    Sure beats the 8" boards I've used to board many boats. Nice setup as long as there's a second set of steps to the swim platform.

    Mmm... Can't say that I'm impressed by painted aluminum.
    The passerelle fitted to the Wider in your other post is in another league, imho.
