About Yacht Fenders
Yacht fenders are essentially cushioning devices placed between the hull of a yacht and another object to reduce the impact of any collision. Yacht fenders are located at various hull points, usually near the bow or stern. Yacht fenders come in several different types and sizes, from small inflatable ones to Super Yacht Fenders, which are designed for large vessels. Yacht fenders protect against abrasion, scrapes, shocks, and vibrations when a vessel is moored up.
Types of Yacht Fenders
Cylindrical Fenders: These are the most common type of Yacht Fenders and are generally used in small areas. They are made from various materials, including PVC, rubber, and nylon.
Arch Fenders: These Yacht Fenders are designed for larger areas, such as the sides of a Super Yacht. They are usually made from reinforced rubber and provide superior protection against shocks and vibrations
Foam Elastomer Fenders: These are the cheapest type of Yacht Fenders and are usually made from a combination of foam and elastomer, which provides superior protection against shocks, vibrations and abrasion.
Cone Fenders: These Yacht Fenders are designed for mooring in exposed areas, such as marinas. They provide excellent protection against impact and are made from various materials, including rubber and foam.
Pneumatic Fenders: These are the most expensive type of Yacht Fenders and are used in areas with a risk of high-impact collisions. They are also suitable for use in choppy waters, as they have a greater degree of flexibility
Hydro-pneumatic Fenders: These are the latest type of Yacht Fenders and have a unique design allowing them to be used in shallow and deep waters. They provide superior protection against shocks, vibrations and abrasion as they are made from reinforced rubber.
How Many Fenders Are Needed on a Yacht?
The number of Yacht Fenders depends on the size and type of the vessel. Generally speaking, it is recommended that smaller vessels use two fenders - one at either end of the boat - while larger vessels should use four or more. It is essential to consider where you want to moor your yacht to decide how many fenders are needed.
