The Kurtlinger gangway

Suitable for all sailors.

With the Kurtlinger Gangway you finally have a safe gangway that thinks for itself.

Designed and manufactured by Kurt Aubele from Upper Bavaria, this combines constant sure-footedness with independent height adjustment at high and low tide in just one gangway. No matter which port, bay or dock you go to, your Kurtlinger gangway always adapts. From a flat transition to an incline of +/- 45°. As soon as there is an incline, there are always stairs for sure-footed on- and off-boarding for you and your accompanying guests.

up to +/- 1m
Tidal range

Thanks to its clever technology with self-leveling steps, the Kurtlinger gangway always adapts to height differences between deck and dock. This means that steps are always sure-footed and non-slip.

The gangway is anchored in the ship using the pin, which must be folded out. The gangway is set up on the pier with the rollers folded out. It is important that the rollers are far enough away from the edge of the pier so that they do not slip off the dock when the ship is moving, otherwise the gangway and the ship could be damaged.


Transport/storage of the gangway:

For transport, a handle is attached to the center of gravity of the gangway.

The Kurtlinger gangway is available in different versions.

The new generation is here!

Can an ingenious invention be improved? The new model leaves nothing to be desired. Here the construction is more compact and the technology is embedded in the longitudinal struts in such a way that it makes setting up and dismantling the gangway much easier for everyone.
