The STEADI-PLANK™ Boat Boarding Ramp Systemę will allow you the flexibility to handle most all the dock and boat boarding situations that you will encounter. The STEADI-PLANK™ Boat Boarding Ramp System© is made of marine grade aluminum, using the latest state of the art "space age" honeycomb core construction and bonding techniques. The STEADI-PLANK™ Boat Boarding Ramp System© is very versatile and can be reconfigured and added to as your needs change.
  • YBS ramps are expandable and extendable. You are not "locked-in" to one length. You can add or remove sections as your needs change.
  • YBS ramps are made from marine grade aluminum with aluminum honeycomb core. NOT a COMPOSITE CORE that may wick water!
  • YBS ramps are made with an internaly welded frame with welded in cross members to insure strenght and stability.
  • YBS ramps are made with the aluminum honeycomb core bonded to the frame on all sides. Not just "laid in" as others do.
  • YBS ramps use custom made quick mounting forks made from marine grade aluminum. (Not a flimsy home gate latch like you would find at a home improvement store) This mounting system is designed to safely secure the ramp to the vessel or dock and maintain that attachment under the most severe sea and wind conditions. We do not use a gate latch that might fail like some others.
  • YBS ramps have a rubber edge guard on all sides to help protect your vessel from scratches.
  • YBS ramps have Eye rings to let you attach lines.
  • YBS ramps have a replaceable UHMW skid plate to protect the dock or pier.
  • YBS ramps let you add a full length handrail that will help support you if you should stumble. (NOT a small "T" handle or rope that may NOT steady you.)
  • YBS ramps are wider for better stability, easier boarding and the use of "roll-on's". (24" wide)
  • YBS ramps weigh less. (Approximately 2.5 Lb per sq. ft. with all mounting hardware attached)
  • YBS ramps afford you the most flexibility for mounting and reconfiguring for future needs.
  • YBS ramps are stronger ....All of YBS ramps will support over 1,000 lb distributed weight.
  • YBS ramps float. Many will not if lost over the side.
  • ALL of YBS PS/PSE series ramps may be upgraded to YBS "Passerelle" style boarding ramp or "C.A.R.S. ramp system (cable assisted retraction system"). You will not have to start over to upgrade to these features.
  • YBS ramps are in stock. We can ship any of YBS standard ramps within 4 days of receiving an order. YBS custom ramps can be shipped within 30-45 days of receiving an order.
  • YBS wheelchair ramps are made for the marine environment. They are not land based ramps trying to be used on a vessel.

Wheelchair Accessible Boarding Ramps

Unlike the way most people use land based wheelchair ramps, when used on a vessel, the vessel is always moving up, down, forward, aft, and side to side as the tide, wind, and waves control it. Therefore, the ramp end that is on the dock/land is also moving. As the tide comes and goes, the vessel end of the ramp may be higher or lower than the dock and the underside of the ramp may be resting on the dock instead of the end with the standard rubber pad that most traditional ramps have.

  • YBS has added hinged transition plates to the ends of the ramp to allow the wheelchair to transition the height difference created by the changing height difference of the vessel and dock.
  • YBS has also added UHMW skid pads to the under side of the ramp and at the bottom of the dock end of the ramp for it to slide on so not to damage the ramp or dock.
  • Since the vessel is moving with respect to the dock, YBS has developed a mounting system to secure the ramp to the vessel.
  • YBS Wheel Chair Boarding Ramps have removable wheel guards to allow for better storage aboard the vessel.
  • Boarding Ramps feature flat non-skid for smoother rolling on the ramp.
  • Removable optional handrail system.
  • YBS wheelchair ramps are extendable with optional extra length sections.
  • Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
