In boating, a fender is a bumper which is used to absorb the kinetic energy released by a boat or berthing against a jetty quay wall or other vessel. Fenders are used to prevent damage to boats, vessels and berthing structures. The way they work is due to the fact they have high energy absorption and a low reaction force.
The type of fender your boat needs depends on many variables, including dimensions and displacement of the vessel, maximum allowable stand-off, berthing structure, tidal variations and other berth-specific conditions.
Some boats require permanent inflatable boat fenders, whilst others use mobile boat fenders for docking only. See the following guide to boat fenders for sale as well as information on boat fender accessories.
