Step up Your Gangway

Step up Your Gangway

Meet the new NV Apollon 6R Special BL. This luxurious hydraulic gangway doubles as a swim ladder, with custom details available to match your yacht’s aesthetics.

Entirely made by hand, it combines innovative design, multiple functions and first-rate manufacturing quality using mirror-finish stainless steel. In gangway configuration, it measures 6 m long and 1 m wide, and can rotate 35° left and right.

It features hydraulic operation and a special rail design to allow use of its full width. Two removable ramps enable handicapped access aboard. The flat gangway deck is made of separate elements that rotate to become 13 steps, plus an extra one just below deck level.

Each has recessed blue LEDs for low light conditions. The stainless steel control panel has illuminated buttons, and its sensors confirm gangway position.
