Susan Bland's SailStep

Perhaps you'll be next year's winner?


Are 'Creaky Knees' making your sailboat feel taller every year?  Sign up for a chance to win the SailStep portable boarding ladder and help shorten the gap between dock and deck! 

SailStep's award-winning design has revolutionized docking and casting off by providing a safe and easy way to step between your boat and the dock. The rock-solid step sits at about half your hull's height, so your crew can step off on approach, with dock lines in hand, or walk your boat out of the slip and effortlessly step aboard. No stress; no hazardous jumping. No embarrassing sit & scootch. Solid and sturdy in use, SailStep feels more like strolling up a set of stairs, rather than climbing a ladder. 

Watch how easy it is:

The ample step ingeniously folds into a rugged aluminum frame. It's small and compact, and at around 5lbs weight it's perfect to carry onboard, and fits easily into your dock-box. You'll never be caught without a step again.

Three different models are available, designed to fit boats with aluminum, teak, and molded-fiberglass toerails. SailStep fits most production sailboats, including Beneteau, Catalina, Ericson, Jeanneau, Pearson, Tartan, Wauquiez, and more. Visit to find the right boarding solution for your boat.

So be the trend setter in your marina, ditch the rickety crate or swingy rope ladder and get the award-winning SailStep. And you don't have to wait to find out if you win the prize, you can have two, one on your boat and the other in your dock-box!

Sailstep Practical Sailor Award

**SailStep is hand-crafted of custom aluminum extrusions, welded, and anodized to match your deck hardware. The lower step is injection-molded PBT, for extreme durability and UV resistance. Each component, down to the teflon-coated screws, is designed for long-term service. It comes with a three year guarantee, but your SailStep may well outlast your boat.
