  • 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.

    • The lightest fender in the world
    • Can be deflated and rolled for stowage
    • Built to withstand an immense amount of pressure
    • Automatically adapts to temperature swings

  • 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

Great Fenders!

Great fenders, will probably buy more!

Michael Chapin
Customer service is free at, but waiting forever for items.

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

Craig Whitten
Quality is very apparent, construction will last

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.

Craig Whitten
Awesome, superb quality

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!
