The cylindrical fender is the most common fender shape. Built with stainless steel D-rings located at the top and a bottom strap, this fender can be positioned vertically or horizontally (Models C84 and larger will need to use a Long Side Cover to positioned horizontally). The Fendertex® cylindrical textile fender offers high abrasion resistance. They are ultralightweight, easy to handle, and can be deflated and folded to minimize storage space.
1 - Technical textile with low elasticity at the ends to compensate for the increase in air volume caused by high temperatures maintains a constant pressure of about 5.1 psi (350 mbh)
2 - Long side ring
3 - Highly elastic inner tube, water can be added to act as ballast for the fender
4 - A technical textile made from polyester with high abrasion resistance. Does not absorb salt, thus avoiding micro scratches on the hull. Easy to clean with water or in a standard washing machine.
5 - Retention strap to prevent deformation of the collar during compression
6 - Inflatable suspension collar with a maximum capacity of 1.5 tons of vertical tension
7 - Suspension strap is sewn into a cross for added strength
8 - 316 stainless steel D-ring

Great fenders, will probably buy more!
The fenders themselves are very nice and customer service has been great, but the covers are taking easily 3 times longer than what was initially, and I’m still waiting on them. They should adjust the expectations listed for turnaround times accordingly
Excellent service and follow up for a great product
I'm very impressed with the inflatable fenders purchased from PYI. They are of an impressive quality that will easily last through many seasons. Plus, the idea is a great one and a huge space saver for a sailboat where storage is at a premium.
Very happy with the inflatable fenders we received. Not only is the quality top-notch, but it's an innovative idea to reduce storage space while on the move. We elected to get embroidered fender covers as well-- just awesome. Fabric is high quality and it looks like it will remain very durable over the years. Thanks!
