In order not to damage the yacht by lagging at the pier and to moor in a busy marina without damaging your yacht, as well as for yachts moored in the neighborhood - you need fenders.
Fenders - this is a very important part of the yacht's equipment. Mooring without fenders difficult and dangerous task, both for your boat and for those around you. Fenders help to avoid blows about the berth or fender, as well as contact with the hulls of neighboring yachts. When entering the marina, the crew of the yacht hangs out the fenders in advance. But important for safe mooring choose the right size and type of fenders, their number and placement of fenders along the body.
If you are already a yacht owner, you are familiar with what fenders are, but, if you are just planning to buy your own yacht, we will be happy to help you sort out this issue.
So, types of fenders there are different, not only oval and round, but also flat fenders, as well as fenders of a number of unusual shapes, such as a step fender or an unusual fender for a dinghy. Fenders need to be serviced, know how much pressure should be in your fenders and how to properly inflate the fender. You also need to know what knot to tie the fenders to the rails and what covers for fenders are, as well as what purpose they serve.
What fenders are, how they differ, what are their features, how to choose fenders for your boat and how much they cost - see the new video with Sasha Goron, the skipper of the Interparus Yachting team.
