A duckboard rail is a necessary element to the majority of boats. We can manufacture a custom duckboard rail that incorporates a range of features or attachments to help make your boat exactly what you want it to be.
What is a Duckboard Rail?
Duckboard rails are stainless steel or aluminium rails which are attached to the top of the rear of the boat (the stern) and often extend partially along the sides of the boat.
The primary purpose of a Duckboard rail is a grab rail and to prevent people going overboard. It is particularly important if you have kids.
Apart from the safety factor, our custom duckboard rails also look great and can be fitted with a range of extras, such as –
Fishing rod holders,
Gas bottle holders, and
Aluminium Duckboard Rail vs Stainless Steel Duckboard Rail
We can build and weld Duckboard rails from either aluminium or stainless steel, the main differences are –
- Stainless steel is stronger, lasts longer and most people think it looks better,
- Aluminium is lighter and cheaper.
If there is likely to be a heavy load on the duckboard rail we strongly suggest using stainless steel.
