SailStep is the only rigid boarding ladder designed for use with teak and synthetic teak toe-rails. There are three alternative products on the market that attach to your stanchions, the Edson One Step, the Doyle QuickStep, and the Fender Step. They’re all rope ladders, and they’re inherently unstable.
Honestly, we’d have bought the ideal boarding ladder, if it existed. Instead, we ended up building a series of prototypes, culminating in what you see here. We’re proud of our results. With rigid aluminum risers, and a sturdy welded construction, SailStep is absolutely rock-solid for use in motion.
Frankly, our knees make our freeboard feel a bit higher every year. Our first prototype was built to keep the inventor’s wife from making that harried jump from deck to dock (she’s the model in our photos, and SailStep’s biggest fan). We’re sure your crew will love SailStep too.
We can guarantee SailStep’s strength and construction, but only you can guarantee its safe use.
