A FENDER THAT TURNS YOUR
TENDER INTO A LIFERAFT

PRICING AND INFO, FOR BOAT COLLARS ON TENDERS

A Boat Collar on your aluminium, fibreglass or plastic tender:

  • Won't scuff, mark or scratch yacht.
  • Solid foam flotation - won't deflate if punctured.
  • Easy D.I.Y fit.
  • Light weight.
  • Long wearing & durable (average 10 year lifespan).
  • Paint to match your yacht.
  • Carry more load with increased freeboard & better stability.
  • Never sink, even if full of sea or rain water.
  • Suits most small boats, including plastic and fibreglass.

PREPARED FOR ROUGH WEATHER?

A Boat Collar adds so much stability to even the tippiest of tenders, that you'll receive better performance from a deep-v hull with a Boat Collar, than a flat bottom boat.

After all, tenders are used in conditions & locations that other small boats aren't. Whether its beach launching, through bad chop/ rain/storms, or off to see nearby islands, tenders are small boats that need to do it all.

We know first hand that living on a yacht is not always sunshine and gentle breezes. Stepping off the duck board while the yacht is lurching around in rough chop with the dinghy rising and falling is very dangerous. So you need a tender that you can step into and know it won't flip over on your, but will support your unbalanced weight with ease.

If you're deciding between a deep V-bottom boat and a flat bottom boat, chose the v-bottom as it'll be more comfortable and faster through chop than the flat bottom boat - with the Collar.

The Kapten Boat Collar makes driving in horrid conditions much more comfortable, stable and gives greater handling & control.

It doesn't take much to capsize a small dinghy. Misplaced weight, a swell hitting you at just the wrong time, or even another boats' wake, can spell disaster.

It's not worth the risk.

COMPARE TYPES OF TENDERS

By adding a Collar to a standard shaped boat, you'll enjoy the best fender for your tender, with the bonus of amazing performance and safety. Below graph looks at what you can expect from these types of boats. (Only the green column has a Boat Collar fitted).

FREEDOM TO MOVE

Even a very tippy 2 metre tender (6.6ft as above) can get great stability with a Kapten Boat Collar. Boarding and trips ashore are so stable and dry, you've never known such comfort. Go snorkeling & easily climb back in!

For all that flotation, you still end up with a tender that's far lighter than most inflatables. Carrying your tender up a beach is also easier with a Collar, because you can get a good grip underneath it.

TRANSOM FOAM = FENDER + FLOTATION

You can add Transom Foam to your Boat Collar order, so you can add even more buoyancy to your boat, as well as protect the rear corners of your boat from making impact with your yacht.

Alternatively, for small tenders with HP under 6hp, you can leave 100mm excess of the Collar to flow past your transom board - as shown in the far right image. Greater care must be taken with this excess flap - not to put pressure on it. Whereas the Transom foam is screwed on & glued to the Collar sides.
