    We have some big family members, 250-300 lbs and I'm curious if the ladder will support them or not. We have the curved ladder not the stainless. Is there an official limit that anyone knows about?

    With all the safety stickers on the new boats, if there was a weight limited it would be posted.

    There is one on the roof ladder for our motorhome. It says 250 weight limit.
    I have to agree with Remediation. If there was a problem there would be a sticker.
    They're everywhere.

    I'd be surprised if it was over 300. Everything has a limit.

    I'm thinking that if you can fit between the handrails you don't weigh too much.

    Remember you don’t weigh as much in the water. It’s that last (top) step that could be the question. Like MattB says, everything has a weight limit, they just don’t always post it.
