New Carbon Fibre Yacht Components

18 November 2005

Ocean Endeavours has launched a range of production composite components for performance and luxury yachts.

Ranging from carbon steering wheels to telescopic masts for navigation lights, from ladders to canting keel systems, each ‘standard’ product is said to be manufactured with the same skill and attention to detail as the company’s custom products, ensuring that accuracy, longevity and reliability is consistently achieved. An example of these newly available products is the all carbon ladder for superyachts. Promoted on the Superyacht Docs stand at METS, it features 570mm wide steps with a wide bottom platform, and can be supplied between 2m and 2.5m in length.

The use of carbon ensures the ladder is stiff enough to provide a sturdy walkway, yet also keeps the weight low, allowing ease of mounting, dismounting and stowing. The cantilevered design features a simple attachment to the boat making the ladder easy to deploy and stow single handed. Understanding the customisation requirements of superyacht designers and owners, Ocean Endeavours offers the ladder with a choice of finish, incorporating non slip tread surfaces.
