Single-telescoping passerelle

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.

Double telescopic passerelle

The double-telescoping type passerelle is a further extension on the single telescoping passerelle and its design increases the stowed efficiency of the plank. 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. 

Fold-over telescoping passerelle

The fold-over passerelle provides a unique solution for vessel designs with limited stowage space or requirements for larger deployment length. The folding design provides the greatest efficiency in the stowed:deployed ratio.  The passerelle folds in stack when stowed.

Fold over passerelle

Fold under telescoping passerelle

The fold-under passerelle, much like the fold-over passerelle provides a 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 and this ratio is further enhanced when the folding plank section includes an additional telescoping plank section. The passerelle folds in stack when stowed.

Jack-knife passerelle

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 on show.
