Passerelles & Gangways

Specifications

Single Telescopic

The single-telescoping type passerelle is a design that enhances the stowed efficiency and deployed flexibility of the plank. The passerelle may be deployed with the telescoping section extended or retracted. This allows the pocketing hydraulic passerelle to be used in a variety of boarding conditions. The single-telescoping passerelle luffs +/- 20 degrees and slews a total of 90-degrees.

Nautical Structures' hydraulic self-centering, slew-lock and float functions are stan-dard features incorporated into the design of the telescoping passerelle, eliminating the need for electric limit/proximity switches. This provides long-term reliable per-formance in a wet marine environment with reduced maintenance requirements.

Double Telescopic

The double-telescoping type passerelle is a design that increases the stowed efficiency of the plank. By doubling the plank-sections the ratio of stowed length to deployed length is increased. This allows the pocketing hydraulic passerelle to stow in shorter spaces in the yacht. The passerelle may be deployed with the telescoping sections extended or retracted. This allows the pocketing hydraulic passerelle to be used in a variety of boarding conditions.

The double-telescoping passerelle luffs +/- 20 degrees and slews a total of 90 degrees. Nautical Structures' hydraulic self-centering, slew-lock and float functions are Standard features incorporated into the design of the telescoping passerelle, eliminating the need for electric limit/proximity switches. This provides long-term reliable performance in a wet marine environment with reduced maintenance requirements.

Fold Over Telescoping

The fold-over passerelle provides a unique solution for vessel designs with limited stowage space or requirements for enhanced deployment length. The folding design provides the greatest efficiency in the stowed:deployed ratio. This ratio is further enhanced when the folding plank sec-tion includes an additional telescoping plank section. The passerelle folds in a "stacked" fashion when stowed.

The Nautical Structures' unique folding design opens into a rigid 'locked' position, providing a boarding experience with very minimal deflection and bounce while in the self-support mode. The folding plank design deploys with both plank sections aligned eliminating the "step" found in all multi-section telescoping planks; a greatly enhanced appearance with additional safety by eliminating potential trip-points along the plank. This design is also ideal for passerelles configured to accommodate a wheelchair. Nautical Structures' hydraulic self-centering, slew-lock and float functions are standard features incorporated into the design of the folding-type passerelle, eliminating the need for electric limit/proximity switches. This provides long-term reliable performance in a wet marine environment with reduced maintenance requirements.

The folding passerelle is available in deployed lengths from five-meters to over ten-meters de-pending upon the vessel's boarding requirements. Include our unique self-leveling final boarding platform or a self-leveling stairway built into the folding plank section and the folding-type passerelle may be the most versatile boarding system available.

Jack-Knife

The passerelle rotates starboard in a Jack-Knife movement and stows behind the transom hatch . When the hatch is closed the name of the vessel is visible.

Rugged aluminum alloy construction and attention to the finer details is what differentiates the Nautical Structures passerelle from that of other manufacturers. The exceptional quality and value of your vessel has now extended all the way to the dock as the passerelle is typically the primary entranceway onto your yacht.

Quality features include: Watertight enclosure fabricated in either steel or aluminum alloy, Self-Propelled Deployment, without the use of belts or gears, hydraulic luffing and slew-ing, the ability to self-support its weight above the dock while passengers are boarding with very minimal deflection, mandrel-bent Hoop-Style stainless steel handrails, traditional seamed teak walking surfaces LED light-ing hand-laid into the teak, wireless remote control, call-bell/intercom/security system, hydraulic automation including self-support and float-feature, and automated hydraulic transom door. The float feature allows the passerelle to be deployed onto the dock with the benefit of dock-wheels the passerelle is capable of moving with the tide and with the vessel on its spring-lines.

Additional Features May Include:

Side Accommodation Stair

Nautical Structures specializes in the design and manufacture of individually-built exceptional passerelles. Each passerelle is built to order and to the exacting standards of the client. No two are necessarily produced exactly alike as each vessel we build for tends to be unique. The passerelles are available in any one of a number of configurations, including telescoping, folding, folding with a telescoping section, and the self-leveling ‘Jack-knife’ style.

Rugged aluminum alloy construction and attention to the finer details is what differentiates the Nautical Structures passerelle from that of all other manufacturers. From your first step onto your Nautical Structures Passerelle you know that you have arrived back on board in the comfort and style that you are accustom. The exceptional quality and value of your vessel has now extended all the way to the dock as the passerelle is typically the primary entranceway onto your yacht. Quality features include: Watertight enclosure fabricated in either steel or aluminum alloy, Self-Propelled Deployment, without the use of belts or gears, hydraulic luffing and slewing, the ability to self-support its weight above the dock while passengers are boarding with very minimal deflection, mandrel-bent Hoop-Style stainless steel handrails, traditional seamed teak walking surfaces, LED lighting hand-laid into the teak, wireless remote control, call-bell/intercom/security system, hydraulic automation including self-support and float-feature, and automated hydraulic transom door.
