The double-telescoping type passerelle is a design that increases the stowed efficiency of the plank. By doubling the plank-sections the ratio of stowed length to deployed length is increased. 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. The double-telescoping passerelle luffs +/- 20 degrees and slews a total of 90 degrees. Nautical Structures' hydraulic self-centering, slew-lock and float functions are Standard features incorporated into the design of the telescoping passerelle, eliminating the need for electric limit/proximity switches. This provides long-term reliable performance in a wet marine environment with reduced maintenance requirements.
