Anchor Marine manufacturer a range of quality marina bow fenders designed to last.
Bow Fenders are specifically used to cushion the bow of your boat and keep it in good condition all year round. Bow fenders from Anchor Marine come in two different designs – bulbous and Slimline. Bulbous bow fenders have more protection at the very tip of the fender as it inflates into a large bulbous-type cushion. The Slimline bow fenders tend to be wider in their design, protecting a larger area of your boat’s bow. However, they have slightly less inflatable protection to that of the bulbous design. The Slimline design also comes with a front strap so that it can be raised and lowered easily.
Fenders are conventionally fitted with spliced fender rope. The splice is as strong as the rope it is made from and so is a perfect way of securing any fender. Generally all bow fenders will fit most bow shapes, however the three eyes allow for adjusting should your bow be too large or too long. The Bow Fender should be adjusted to a height where the very tip of your bow is cushioned should an impact occur. The height can be adjusted by the fender rope that should be fed through the centre eye of the bow fender.
Each bow fender is moulded from a single piece of UV resistant marine grade vinyl. All of the fender eyes are also reinforced to prevent the fender ropes from pulling through. The Anchor Marine Range of boaw fenders includes 4 different sizes and are available in either blue or white. We also stock a range of traditional narrowboat bow / stern rope fenders which can be seen by clicking here, narrowboat fenders.
