Product Media Release
As the market for superyacht tenders and chase boats now encompasses many variations of size and custom designs, it becomes more important than ever to ensure safe handling of these vessels and of course protect their value.
C-Quip Inflatable Tender Fenders are in high demand and are frequently being specified by yacht builders and crews worldwide.
As always, first impressions count and what better way for your passengers to arrive and dock alongside the sleek and elegant C-Quip tender fenders that will cushion the tenders on arrival and offer a perfectly placed handhold for disembarkation.
Providing your passengers with a safe, smooth docking experience is just part of the C-Quip tender fenders brief, it will then continue to provide safe and strong protection to both the superyacht and tender whilst moored alongside. Extending protection above and below the deck ensures that your tender and yacht are protected during changes in tender ride height due to large swells.
The C-Quip tender fender was developed in consultation with yacht captains and deck crew. Unlike other fender systems that use hard, unforgiving foam pads or rollers, our soft cushioning inflatable hypalon tube system is the ultimate in energy absorption. It naturally adjusts to any shape tender for quiet and comfortable protection. We also include a durable yet elegant neoprene cover that wraps the fender tube and can be customised with the vessel's name printed onto it.
All of our tender fenders are meticulously crafted from advanced carbon fibre prepreg using the latest in precision manufacturing. This offers the maximum strength whilst being light and easy for the crew to deploy. Locking them to deck is fast and secure with the C-Quip supplied threaded deck fittings. Additionally, the ability to quickly inflate and deflate the tubes makes storing them very easy.
