The Best Aluminum Dock Ladders and Boat ladders

Aqua-Stairs ® Quality and Affordable Dock and Boat Ladders

When you are looking for bold new designs in marine ladders, you’re going to want to look at the aluminum dock ladders and boat ladders from Aqua-Stairs. Our sloped designs are different from the traditional dock and boat ladders in that they allow people—and dogs—to step in and out of the water quickly.

Standard dock, pier, seawall, swim platform, and other swimming ladders tend to be designed vertically. That makes the act of getting in and out of the water much closer to climbing than walking. With our unique staircase design, you can walk in and out of the water instead of climbing. That isn’t the only change we’ve made either. While vertical steps are typically between two and three inches in depth—which can hurt your feet—our steps are approximately eight inches deep. This provides much more comfortable footing.

We are always looking for new ways to improve our stair-step style dock ladders to ensure our customers get the most out of our products. Whether we are offering multiple step options—from three steps to seven steps—attaching easy-to-use flip-out brackets or making sure the steps are wide and deep enough for you to sit on while in the water, you are going to love how our ladders are designed.

Why Climb Out of the Water when You can Walk Out?

Aqua-Stairs ladders were specifically designed to allow people with certain disabilities, handicaps, or physical limitations to enjoy the water again. Aqua-Stairs contribute to creating a safer waterfront for everybody. Whether you are using our ladder due to a disability or simply because you prefer an easier, better way to get into and out of the water, you are sure to be impressed with what our ladders have to offer.

Your Aqua-Stairs can be permanently mounted to your boat or dock by bolting the upper plate directly to the mounting surface, or they can be attached with the included flip-out brackets—which allows you to quickly flip the ladder up and out of the water to prevent the buildup of algae while not in use. Contact us today to learn all about our ladder options to find the perfect build for your needs.

The Aqua-Stairs Dock and Boat Ladders Are Great For:

Kayaks, Canoes, and Jet Ski Enthusiasts: Rather than stepping off of a high dock down to a canoe, kayak, or jet ski, you can simply walk down our dock ladder steps to the water’s level to board with ease.

Any Adult: Stop climbing in and out of the water when you can use our boat and dock stairs to step out easily instead. Want to just sit and enjoy the water? Our ladders make it easy to do that as well.

Relaxation: Say goodbye to treading in the water only to have to use the rest of your strength to climb out. Instead, you can sit on these dock ladders as you would any stairs and rest in the water.

Elderly and Children: This is an excellent stair-step ladder for those who need assistance getting into or out of the water—including the elderly, children, and the disabled. There is no need for a handrail on the dock ladder since the front pipe is at a convenient, natural arm’s length when using these swim steps.

Pets: Our Aqua-Stairs make for the perfect dog dock or boat ladder, allowing your pet to get back out of the water easily. Using our dog dock or boat ladder alleviates you from having to either pick them up or send them back to the shore. It also gives your pets the ability to come up on their own.

Specifications of Our Aqua-Stairs

Aqua-Stairs are all marine-grade 6063 T aluminum boats, dock, and pontoon ladders. The steps are made of textured plate aluminum to prevent slipping and are rolled and hemmed at the front to provide a smooth edge to prevent cuts.

The dock ladder models are hinged at the mounting brackets to allow the ladder to be easily lifted out of the water for storage. Only four bolts are required to attach these swim ladders to a floating dock, fixed dock, seawall, swim platform, bulkhead, or pier.

The dock ladder models all can easily accommodate up to 500 lbs. since the body of these ladders are all fully welded—unlike many other marine ladders. All of our aluminum dock and boat ladders come with a limited lifetime warranty.
