This attractive gangway with its teak grate panels is a surprisingly light, easy to manage, durable gangway/passerelle. The Teak Gangway is used extensively by many boat owners, who have previously owned older heavier teak gangways.
The teak used is grown commercially, and because of the grate design and the aluminium structure, makes it a lot lighter and therefore easier to deploy even by one person. Combined with the aluminium structure, the end result is a reasonably lightweight and extremely durable gangway/passerelle.

Quality of finish, attention to detail and compact size, makes this folding gangway/bathing ladder a prestigious accessory to any boat. It can be used both as a gangway/passerelle or a bathing ladder, depending on the requirement.
Manufactured in Italy by Nemo, this compact gangway has been a winner since it was first introduced into the UK market in 1998. Because of it minimal height when folded (65 or 85 cm), it can easily be secured to the guardrail or simply stowed in a locker, due to its extremely compact size. The well designed hinge locking system offers a safe and secure gangway in its open position, also ensuring easy operation when deploying this gangway. The Universal gangway comes complete with its own delrin deck socket, a handrail and storage bag option.
The teak steps are shaped to ensure a comfortable foot position when used as a bathing ladder. Two small adjustable feet can also be fitted to the back of the gangway, which allows the gangway to adopt a secure angle to the transom. There is also an optional aluminium extension, with two rungs which hang perpendicularly into the water.
The hinge system is another of the features on the two part folding gangways. Nominated at one of the Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) for an award, handles on the hinge pull outwards to release the lock and once the gangway is open, automatically lock ensuring a safe, enduring gangway. To fold the gangway, the locks are released and the gangway returns to its compact position.
All of our teak gangways have an option to be fitted with a handrail and some include a storage bag as standard.
