Lightweight, robust and easy to install, carbon fibre stanchions superbly designed and produced by AMS are the perfect complement to any kind of yacht adding to decks, balconies, swim platforms an eye-catching effect.
AMS produces both fixed and removable stanchions that can be quickly removed and stored. Fixed stanchions are installed on a deck interface in mirror finish stainless steel bases while the removable ones are mounted on quick-lock fixtures.
Straight, curved or custom shaped on request, AMS stanchion poles in pre-preg or chopped carbon fibre are laminated in epoxy resin and can be finished with high-gloss or matte carbon look, and are also available in painted finish. Coupled to Dyneema ® lines, a composite unidirectional laminate, our stanchions enhance protection and allow leaning outboard in total safety.
To keep decks, balconies, bulwarks rails secure, the Dyneema ® lines tension is adjusted with stainless steel turnbuckles.
Note: every stanchions system is designed according to the applicable Register design requirements.


  • Finite Element Analysis for the optimization of the weight and strength
  • Lightweight products with high strength and robustness
  • Saving of space and weight for the mechanisms
  • Complex shape manufacturing
  • High durability

AMS, trough the most advanced carbon fibre lamination technologies, is able to manufacture items with very complex shapes that could not otherwise be produced using conventional materials.


Design criteria
Each product is unique and it is designed according to the applicable Register design requirements and load cases. The finite element analysis allows us to obtain the lightest possible product with the highest strength and robustness. The design process leads to an optimised product where the carbon fibres are oriented towards the maximum stress direction.

Epoxy resin prepreg carbon fibre.
Epoxy resin carbon fibre laminated in vacuum bag.
Epoxy resin chopped carbon fibre laminated in vacuum bag.
