PrestoMarine Lifts has announced the launch of their new platform, the PML platform. The PML platform is an accessory that can be attached onto lifts already installed on board yachts and allows easier access for users from the water. The platform is designed to be used as an extra step for disabled users, and can be positioned just under or just above the waterline. Monica Hedlund of PrestoMarine Lifts explained, “With a net around it, the step can also be lowered just below the waterline and used as a seat for children.”
Monica added, “The concept of the PML platform was ready at the end of 2014, but was demonstrated on an actual lift for the first time at Allt för sjön in Stockholm last month. As it stands, there is currently nothing like this on the market – a product which you can add and/or take off of an installed lift. The first platform is on its way to the US this week for installation; very exciting for us.
“The idea of the PML platform came about after interacting with a customer at a boat show when he brought to our attention his difficulty of getting out of the water and back up on the swim platform; we then instantly promised to come up with a solution and here it is!
