Two of the latest Besenzoni products recently showcased by the Italian company are a new gangway and ladder.

The PI 382 Sprint model is an automatically operated telescopic gangway whilst the SP 601 is a hydraulically operated retractable ladder/gangway.

Hydraulic power

The PI 382, made from electro-polished or painted stainless steel, combines the functions of gangway and davit. It is equipped with an electro-hydraulic power unit with infra-red remote control for operation from the cockpit and features automatic stanchions with ropes as standard on the starboard side.

The SP 601 retractable ladder/gangway is operated hydraulically, can be tilted upwards or downwards and has self-levelling teak steps. It is available either in polished, powder-coated, or chrome-finish stainless steel.

The stanchions with rope are manually operated and retractable. The control panel for operating the ladder can be located in the cockpit. It is equipped with a hydraulic power unit and has an infra-red remote control. Additionally, there is an optional “ladder outside” sensor intended to warn the bridge when the boat sets off.


Besenzoni, distributed in the UK by Trimage, enjoyed a positive 2018, reporting an increase in turnover of 13% compared with the last four years, thanks to its fruitful collaboration with manufacturers of boats of all kinds.

Successes include 104 davits each with an average lifting capacity of 500kg, 535 hydraulic gangways and more than 5,000m of ropes used in the gangway stanchions.

The company also manufactured 95,000 hydraulic joints, 109 swim platforms, 129 ladders, 78 sunroofs and 14 balconies.
