Interesting Companionway

I was looking through latches for the companionway hatch on my new-to-me Ranger 22 (Ranger Yachts) and came across an image of a rather unusual hatch arrangement. If anyone could tell me what kind of boat it was fitted to, or if you have any other interesting designs, please tell/show me. Thanks.Click image for larger version

Re: Interesting Companionway

it looks like it possibly lifts up horizontally at the base and slides/stows under the dog house.

Re: Interesting Companionway

Pretty common french system, as ER9 said it looks like it lifts and slides into the garage on the cabintop. It's an excellent system.

Re: Interesting Companionway

If does look like you could whack it out and down very quickly from either side and it looks pretty solid too. Nice system.

I particularly like the ones that drop down and allow a range of different types, but they come at a significant cost to engine positioning depending on the boat.

Re: Interesting Companionway

The big window would be nice, and partly opened it would stop rain from entering the hatch. The boat needs a dodger though.. All boats need dodgers!

Re: Interesting Companionway

Rover a Trisbal 36 has a similar companionway hatch. This photo shows it in the stored position. To close, pull it back and then down.


More info on a Trisbal 36

Re: Interesting Companionway

Now tell me they have an option for dropping down "just" some window screening for use on hot nights, and I'll call that a clever alternative to companionway boards.
