According to reports, a popular American shipyard, which deals with elite superyachts, has recently placed an order with Exit Engineering for a one-off gangway, which is to have similar technical and quality characteristics as the company’s regular series production. Exit Engineering has been specializing in products built with pre-preg fabrics and epoxy resin, which are later treated in an autoclave at high pressure (7 bar) and temperature (120 C).

This specially made one-off gangway has a length of 4.5 meters with a weight of 14.4 kg only. Composite material parts and dedicated software for the surface modeling and Finite Elements structural analysis was used to make it. Compared to the heavy and bulky hydraulic gangways, this is a product which will gain more popularity. The gangway is available in varied lengths of up to 6 meters and the clients can personalize the version as solid or folding. In addition to this, the clients can also customize the boat’s name on the gangway, for instance in any graphic or color. Moreover, a written pattern with Weng wood can be inserted if the gangway consists of a teak surface as a result of the use of CNC water-jet cutting machine for cutting curved patterns.
