  • The tandem fender is designed for sailboats, both monohulls and catamarans. It's dual tube design prevents it from rolling on itself and protects a larger area than other shaped fenders. The Fendertex® tandem textile fender offers the highest performance protection. 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.
