NAUTICA INTERNATIONAL is now producing the innovative side door for all model boats from 10 – 43 feet. The overwhelming success of this feature first offered on the WIDEBODY models is now available on all models.
The side door option was developed in response to customers requests for an easier way to get back into the boat for swimmers and divers. It also provides an ideal way for guests to step aboard or disembark from the boat to a dock or a yachts platform. With the side door opened, it provides a near deck level - even fiberglass step or platform to walk thru. Two other features now offered to work in tandem with the side door feature are the; removable hand rail and the telescopic swim ladder option.
Stepping aboard a rolling tender has never been easier and safer especially for novices or the elderly. Rather than climbing over a round soft inflatable tube, the side door feature allows passengers to just step thru and on to the deck. The removable - plug in stainless steel handle provides a waist level sturdy place to steady guests with.
Swimmers and divers will find the built in telescopic stainless steel swim ladder installed just under the door perfect for getting back on board from the water. The recessed three foot (3’), three step telescopic ladder can be accessed from the water by releasing a latch on the face of the ladder door. It deploys outward from its recessed compartment while telescoping vertically down three feet into the water. Additional hand rails can be placed on the inflatable collars at the door opening to further assist swimmers.
When closed and secured for boating in rough seas the door and ladder feature neatly blend back into the sleek boat profile for an unobtrusive look.
