Lightweight vessel fendering for Safehaven Marine high speed interceptor vessel

Safehaven Marine chose Manuplas high performance cast fenders to help provide optimal protection to the hull of the 'Barracuda' high speed interceptor and patrol vessel.

Manuplas fenders are manufactured from a lightweight polyurethane foam core and cast or sprayed with a unique protective polyurethane coating.  This construction helps minimise weight on high speed vessels.  

Manuplas cast fenders are highly impact and abrasion resistant and require minimal maintenance due to a virtually non-marking, high quality, smooth surface finish.  In-house tooling ensures ultimate quality and design accuracy of the fender mould finish.

Manuplas supplies rapid-turnaround vessel fender solution to Strategic Marine

Manuplas has supplied a five piece, sprayed bow fender system to Vietnam-based Strategic Marine for use on one of the company’s Search & Rescue (SAR) vessels.

Strategic Marine initially contacted Manuplas with a requirement for a bow fender solution for its ‘Red Gannet’ 40m SAR vessel, on the understanding that a system could be delivered within a very quick four-week lead time.

The modular approach and design of Manuplas fender systems offers flexibility on the shape, size and technical specification of fendering solutions, and enables the company to provide a solution for specific vessels without the need to invest in costly and time-consuming mould tooling. This meant the Manuplas team was able to provide a solution that could meet the criteria required by Strategic Marine and supply and deliver its solution within 4 weeks, quicker than any of its competitors!
