These may be pricey, but clicking around their offerings it looks like there's a reasonably compact folding mechanism and it provides stairs rather than ladder, and a dinghy platform at water level. Even if these guys are out of range (they seem to cater to the big boys), a good fabricator might be able to get some ideas for something similar but scaled to your needs.

It should fold up alongside your current railing amidships when not needed....
