Passerelle/Stairs on a 37M MY

This 37 meter motor yacht build in 1967 by Clelands Shipbuilding Company needed a passerelle for her charter seasons.

The passerelle should fit in an inside volume of only 2M10 in the lazaret, and should also be used as a ladder to access to the bathing platform.

No existing passerelle in the yacht market would be adapted to the situation.

A careful study unabled us to find the right design and our answer has been a passerelle made of two parts:

  • One part being located into the lazaret when at rest
  • One part remaining outside and being used as a scale to reach the platform from the main deckreceived_174780505191158520171003_101614

All the elements were made in carbon and glass fiber, and the movement has been made possible thanks to a strait collaboration with GZ Nautica for the rams and electronic.
