Swim platform ladders mount to the top or bottom of your swim platform or swim steps. If you spend a lot of time swimming out on the lake, this kind of ladder is essential.
Swim steps for boats vary in two main ways: how they stow and the number of steps or rungs they have. Choose one with enough steps to make boarding easy and safe. As far as storage goes, there are a number of options. Some ladders telescope closed or flip up onto the top of your boat's platform. Others slide and stow underneath!
