Queen’s Award winner Superyacht Tenders & Toys has been selected by specialist inflatable supplier Henshaw to handle sales of all its superyacht transom fenders.
Johan Jorstadius, VP Sales Europe for Wing, Henshaw, Fabtek and Patten Group commented, “Superyacht Tenders & Toys is the front-runner when it comes to superyacht deck equipment management and consultancy, so they were the obvious choice for a partner.
"Their insight into superyacht requirements and experience onboard yachts, combined with our technical product knowledge will allow us to share expertise and deliver quality custom solutions for the superyacht market.”
Superyacht Tenders and Toys’ deck equipment specialists will handle all superyacht transom fender enquiries for Henshaw. The two companies will collaborate on initial concept designs and the team from Superyacht Tenders & Toys will template a transom prior to production to ensure the fenders align to the yacht’s contour.
Josh Richardson, managing director at Superyacht Tenders & Toys, said, “As superyacht design continues to evolve and owners look for new and stand-out hull designs, transom fenders are becoming more complicated. Templating a yacht in person is key to ensure the fenders perfectly fit each individual transom.”
Popular with all superyachts from cruising boats to explorer vessels, transom fenders provide long-lasting protection from damage by tenders and water toys. Foam-filled and wrapped in Hypalon, Henshaw’s composite fenders are designed for high impact. The closed-cell core and durable Hypalon covering are specifically engineered for the marine environment. Manufactured to be non-slip and soft-step, the fenders are available in a range of colours or faux teak to match the deck.
Josh added, “Customisation is infiltrating every area of superyacht life and transom fenders are no exception. By working with Henshaw, we can deliver fenders of any size, shape or colour that aesthetically complement the mothership.”
Henshaw’s transom fenders come in sections for simple, fast installation. Each piece is lightweight for easy handling and quick stowing after use.
