Shipyard Supply Co (SSCo) has launched its own brand of tender mooring whips for superyachts, designed to be the most reliable, well-built and yacht friendly tender whips on the market.
Seeing a gap in the market for a high quality tender whip, SSCo has developed their own whips using a new fibreglass manufacturing method offering greater multi-directional load capacity, incorporating stainless-steel fittings (as opposed to plastic) to ensure the aesthetics match functionality.
Tender mooring whips are designed to keep the tender or jet ski a safe distance from the yacht, preventing damage to either vessel when tenders are moored alongside. The specially designed heavy duty poles, mounted in stainless steel bases, pull the tender away from the hull by applying continuous variable pressure between the yacht and tender. Spring lines keep the tender from moving out of position.
Manufactured in the UK, SSCo's whips are available in painted GRP or carbon to suit yacht tenders of all sizes, from 3-20m+ weighing upwards of 15,000kg.
All GRP options come in a white high-gloss finish as standard, but SSCo are uniquely able to offer custom painting and finishing to match the yacht’s requirements. SSCo also manufactures all deck sockets and can provide over the rail or clamp to stanchion custom mounts as required.
Complete whip kits include two fibreglass poles, two flush deck mounts and polyester whip lines. These come in two sections for ease of transport and storage and are available for same day dispatch from the UK.
