A pilot ladder is a specialized ladder used in maritime operations to safely transfer maritime pilots between their pilot boats and the ships they guide. The ladders are around 9 to 10 meters long and are made of hardwood steps. The 4 lowers steps of the ladder are made out of rubber. These rubber steps enhance safety during boarding and disembarking operations.

All of our products follow international regulations, such as IMO’s SOLAS convention, to ensure safety and consistency.

Note: A pilot ladder is designed for maritime pilots to transfer between pilot boats and ships during navigation, while an embarkation ladder serves for personnel to board or disembark from a ship during routine operations.
