The latest project from superyacht deck equipment specialist Shipyard Supply Co (SSCo) saw a set of custom transom fenders successfully delivered to a 60m CMN superyacht.
Designed to fit the unique contour of the yacht’s transom, the fenders will provide long-lasting protection from damage by tenders and watersports toys.
SSCo commercial manager Luke Porter commented, “The fenders have a closed-cell foam core with a durable Hypalon covering, so they are designed to withstand high impact. The majority of our enquiries are for customised items, so we offer tailored options whenever we can. Manufactured to be non-slip and soft-step, the transom fenders are available in a range of colours or faux teak to match the deck.”
Luke continued, “We made two visits out to the yacht; the first was a consultation as the transom arrangement was due to be re-configured. SSCo supplied the deck sockets for the updated transom and then re-visited to template the new area to ensure the fenders were an exact fit once manufactured.”
Each set of transom fenders is designed to match a yacht’s transom and they come in sections for simple, quick installation when needed. The sections are crew-friendly; lightweight for easy handling and efficient stowage after use.
Existing handrail sockets can be utilised to securely fix the fenders in place or SSCo can supply deck sockets and plugs. Find out more here: https://shipyardsupply.co/products/transom-fenders/
