  • 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

Thank you, looks great!

Fantastic Space Saver

These are amazing space savers for distance cruisers, and take just moments to fill. The only issue is that they have a tendency to rise up and leave the hull unprotected when approaching the dock due to the very light weight.

Fendertex Fenders for the Win!

While skeptical at first, two years after outfitting a 75' trawler, I am a strong advocate for these fenders for many reasons. Besides the good looks, ease of handling, cleaning and storage (8 fenders in a large duffel bag compared with hauling 8 HTM-4's around the deck), I can attest to their durability and strength - no they won't pop and I get a lot of questions about that.

I look forward to outfitting all my vessels with Federtex Fenders as my clients experience for themselves the difference they make, and Tom with PYI Inc. offers great support to boot!

Experience them for yourself - you will not be disappointed.

Outstanding Support and Equipment. We purchased our new vessel and bought them fanciest fenders.
