If safety isn’t a concern, I would think it might deter occasional use as too much of a hassle?
My boat has low decks and access so it’s easier. Still craning anything is always more of a hassle than not so maybe it’s not a dramatic difference?

But once you have the tender lifted off the foredeck and swing over the side and lower it to the water, what do you do then, assuming you aren’t in it? Is there a way to get it to the swim deck or do you use the ladder or …?

Have there been any accidents?

The interior of the APH 68 does look really nice! I can see why that is preferred.

I am aware of three different ways to get the tender unhooked from the davit and moved aft to a boarding gate or to the swim platform.


1) Keep a tender line or two on board, and walk tender aft while paying out more davit line. This is probably the best method as long as there is a clear path to walk the tender aft, and enough davit line to reach aft.


2) Send someone up/down in the tender. The dangers are self evident in this approach. Also, at least my tender is carefully balanced on the lifting sling so it takes off and lands easily in the chocks. Throw in the weight of a person, and now all that has changed.


3) Use a ladder or other means to climb up/down from the deck to the tender while its along side the bow. This is how Nordhavns are set up, using a Marquipt ladder. I'm trying something different on mine and had toe pockets molded into the side of the boat so the ladder is essentially built in to the boat. I haven't used it other than to test it, but I think it's going to work and saves the hassle of handling and storing a ladder.

Riiiight. Now seeing the above, I can understand why you went to all that trouble/extra expence getting the toe-holds moulded into the hull sides.
