Tender Mooring Whips.

Shipyard Supply Co is the leading manufacturer of high-quality tender whips for superyachts. With a stainless-steel roller tip and cleat and high gloss finish, our tender whips are built to the highest standards so they look great as well as being a reliable part of the deck setup.

Our GRP whips come in two standard sizes for tenders weighing up to 15,875 kg.

Sizes available:

  • (14 foot/4.2m)
  • (16 foot/4.8m)

What’s in the kit?

  • 2 x Fibreglass poles, cleats and couplers
  • 2 x Flush fit stainless-steel bases and hardware
  • Mooring whip lines

The flush stainless-steel bases eliminate tripping or catching of lines on board and can be installed on deck, swim platforms or rub rails, depending on the preferred location of the tender. The poles come in two pieces with a fibreglass coupler, so they can be easily stored on board. Breast and spring lines are to be used to hold the tender in place. The leverage created by the bending of the mooring whip pole keeps the tender a safe distance from the side of the yacht or swim platform.

For larger tenders, please enquire about our 6m carbon whips.  They’re lighter, longer and stiffer than the GRP equivalent and have been specifically developed for longer, heavier tenders with a wider beam.


  • GRP or carbon fibre poles
  • Custom paint scheme to match the yacht
