Yellow Mag II: lighter, easier, stronger

Yellow Mag II supersedes its heavier predecessor (and inferior copies) and carries Patent no. NL2011620. The improved pilot ladder magnet is 30% lighter and, whilst as strong as ever, requires 15% less manual effort to release, making it easier to deploy and handle. Magnet mountings and base plate flex to better accommodate rough surfaces like paint, corrosion scale, weld seams and curvature on ship hulls, ensuring maximum grip in adverse conditions. Beware of inferior and out-dated copies of Yellow Mag II. Yellow-Mag II can also be used as a magnet to secure floating oil spill booms and maintenance vessels.

Improved, Patented (NL2011620) Yellow Mag II Pilot Ladder Magnet features include: Pilots ladder ship hull magnets 2

  • 1.6 Kgs lighter in weight
  • N42 grade or better neodymium magnet material.
  • Flexible base and magnet mounts
  • Better grip on rough surfaces
  • Stainless steel ring for tie off
  • >450 kg gripping power per unit but removes easily with lever handle
    Supplied as single units or in set of 4 in strong marine ply box


Pilot ladder security such as Yellow MagII for use during Pilot transfer has been mandated by the International Marine Pilots Association. Yellow MagII is used by many fleets worldwide, including the entire BP tanker fleet.
