The Genesis bow boat ladder has been especially designed for boats with bow rails which end close together on the foredeck creating a narrow entry at the point of the bow.

If your boat at the front does not allow rotation through the bow rails of the Ascend ladder versions, then the Genesis ladder with its much narrower profile is a very effective and stylistically attractive ladder suitable for use on all boats with a bow and bow rail design capable of having a Jacob’s Ladder fitted. As with the Ascend ladders, the Genesis is typically suitable for boats up to 8 metres (ca.26’), whether aluminium or fibreglass, and potentially suitable for craft beyond 8m depending on their bow configuration and anchor size and/or anchor retrieval assembly.

This ladder when deployed, rotates on the roller axle folding forward from its stowed position on the boat’s deck to a solid fixed position extending downwards and outwards at a 30° angle from the vertical, providing a totally firm feeling underfoot as well as a more direct access pathway through the bow rails and into the boat.

It is the angled and solid-fixed aspect of the Genesis bow access ladder when deployed, along with its full integration into the bowsprit roller frame that are its unique features.
