Public de-fenders!

Maybe it was something you were aware of from the get go. Or maybe you had to find out the hard way. But eventually, all savvy boaters know that when it comes to protecting your boat’s hull from chafing, scrapes, dings and other damage while docking, (or from contact with other boats) a boat fender is an essential piece of equipment.

In our  throw-a-way culture there are many fenders that are cheap and readily disposable. To make sure your boat gets the fender lovin’ care it deserves when docked, you’ll want high quality, dependable fenders, like Taylor Made from

Known for having the best combination of softness and durability on the market, Taylor Made Boat Fenders combine the latest in technology, design innovation and attention to detail. The result is the finest looking, top performing protection for your dollar – backed by a lifetime guarantee!

Whatever style or size boat you have, Taylor Made makes a fender to meet your needs. Their Hull Gard boat fender is considered to be the numero uno utility fender on the market. Featuring a unique oval design which prevents the fender from rolling out of position and inflation valves to adjust firmness levels, they are available in six sizes for boats ranging up to 50 feet.

Got a trailerable boat, in the 10-25’ range? The Super Gard  fenders with their double molded black ends for extra strength and seamless one-piece construction are a great option. The molded-in valve ensures easy inflation and a long life. For mooring conditions that require a horizontal fender, the Big B fender can be hung either vertically or horizontally using only a single fender line. It is available in four sizes.

But what about the big boys? Taken care of. The Tuff End boat fenders are designed for heavy duty marine applications. Constructed from flexible, resilient vinyl, the end in each fender is injection molded for extra strength and reliability. The seamless construction is the strongest in the industry and they are available in eight sizes for boats up to 100 feet. And if if you’ve got a REALLY huge boat (up to 200 feet!), the Freedom Yacht fenders feature a unique patented V shape that stays on pilings no matter which way the boat moves. Constructed of heavy duty PVC with the ability to hang vertically or horizontally, these fenders offer the ultimate in docking protection.

Taylor Made also produces a series of unique fenders, such as their Low Freeboard fenders, which are designed to wrap over the gunwale of low freeboard boats, and their Boat Bumper Fender Cushion that provides maximum protection when rafting or tying up against solid walls. Their Survivor series features an exclusive built-in Micro Pump that can be inflated anytime, anywhere without removing the fender or having to use additional pumps, needles or adapters.

What’s that? What about buoys? Glad you asked. Taylor Made also makes the best buoys your buck can buy, like the Sur-Moor Mooring Buoy,  or the Tuff End Inflatable Buoy designed to meet the punishing demands of the commercial marine industry.

So if you’re looking for rugged, dependable boat fenders (and buoys!) that offer the ultimate in protection and longevity, check out the Taylor Made line at
