An accessible boat is equipped with a lift with chair at the stern of the boat.

Users comments
The lift is used as a swim platform for people with disabilities. The user also rides on it to get in and out of the boat when he ties up at a high dock. He transfers to the lift chair and takes the wheelchair with him.
