Ship Access Gangway

What is a Ship Gangway?

A ship gangway, also known as a ship brow or accommodation ladder, is a passageway that joins a ship’s quarterdeck to the forecastle. Today’s use of ship gangways is for passengers to safely board and exit a ship, as well as for loading and unloading, and repairing ships.
