If you own a boat, you know how important it is to protect it from damage. That’s why investing in quality fenders is essential. Let’s take a look at the benefits of using Polyform US fenders.


Polyform US has over 40 years of design and manufacturing knowledge in the production of inflatable fenders and buoys. Based in Kent, Washington, USA, Polyform US designs its products for the harshest of environments making boat fenders for deep sea conditions and has been protecting river cruisers, fishing vessels, yachts, and super yachts for decades.


They have a range of different fenders for every occasion:


F Series Boat Fenders

The dependable F Series fenders come in a variety of sizes to fit any craft and are designed for reliable performance even under harsh environmental conditions.


A Series Buoys



The A Series is an all-purpose buoy, with the signature "blue ropehold" which has proven itself in the most adverse conditions. You name it — ocean, sea, river, or lake — the A Series has been there and a fender you can surely rely on. 


G Series Boat Fenders



Polyform’s G Series boat fender has been thoughtfully designed with ribs to provide extra strength, robust inflation valves on larger sizes, and reinforced ropeholds for enduring performance - all with a pristine aesthetic finish.


HTM Series Boat Fenders



The HTM (hole-through-middle) boat fender was designed to provide maximum protection in a wide variety of applications. Vertical ribs for extra protection, reinforced tube ends to prevent lines from pulling through if the fender gets caught in a tight spot, and extra wall thickness to resist punctures and tears are just a few of the features this fender has to offer. The HTM Series fender is designed to provide protection and stand-off for larger vessels up to 50 feet in length.

This should be used as a general guide. The final responsibility has to be taken by the consumer due to many variables out of Polyform's control.
