Stepping up

Famed for their helm chairs, Bergamo-based Besenzoni showcased a new Oceano range of hydraulic platforms for superyachts at the 2023 Monaco Yacht Show.

01 November 2023


Comprising three models, available in various finishes, the new range of Besenzoni Oceano hydraulic platforms serve as a bathing or boarding ladder, as well as an extension of the beach area and tender lift platform.

Besenzoni also designs customised terraces to enlarge the space between the saloon and gunwales and “create a living zone that connects the interior to the exterior”.

The range of swim platforms/ladders currently comprises three models (LP100 Plus, LP200 and LP300), which come in different sizes and finishes.

Their main function is as a bathing ladder or boarding ladder as they are specially designed to provide easy access to the quayside or to the water but also to make it easier to anchor the boat as well as safely get back on board from the water.

In addition to this, they can serve both as an extension of the beach area and as a comfortable tender lift platform.


Among the features of this multi-function ladder is the ability to safely lift loads of up to 400 kilograms by simply using the push-button panel which is easy to operate and extremely user-friendly.

The ladder/platform is operated hydraulically. It involves an up/down movement and automatic alignment of the steps into a horizontal position.

It is also possible to add a folding footboard at the end to extend the last step, making it even easier to access the quayside.

The structure of the Oceano ladders consists of AISI steel, which is renowned for being highly resistant to corrosion and extremely weather-proof. The coating applied to both the ladder and the platform will be of the owner’s choice so that it blends with the overall décor of the boat.

Adding lights to the steps means that using the ladder at night is extremely safe and atmospheric.  The combination of the materials used ensures long-term durability in marine environments.
