Boat Fenders

The R Series fenders are constructed using molded vertical ribs to enhance strength and minimize rolling. All our fenders use premium marine grade vinyl construction for superior durability. In addition, our fenders are soft and pliable to prevent scratching and have built in UV protection to guard against discoloration. MicroGuard™ guarantees that your fender will last forever without ever rotting, or developing mold or mildew.

T Series Fenders are one piece molded construction with no seams for unparalleled strength and durability. Reinforced ends provide exceptional strength where it is needed most. The vertical ribs further enhance strength and minimize rolling. Premium Marine Grade PVC has built in UV protection and along with MicroGuard™, assures the user that the fender will provide outstanding performance and reliability.

Our heavy duty H Series boat fenders are designed to provide maximum protection on larger vessels. The center mounting hole runs the length of the fender to allow it to be hung either vertically or horizontally without the need for additional lines.
