Big Bumpers® are much larger than traditional bumpers and fenders, available in large 18” and 24” diameters and lengths from 2’ to 12’. The larger size of an inflatable Big Bumper® provides protection not offered by conventional smaller bumpers. They are perfect for private docks, marinas and rafting up to other boats. Big Bumpers® are fully customizable with logo’s and graphics. Inflated or deflated in seconds they are the perfect accessory to protect gelcoat and fiberglass from both surface scratches and more serious damage. Once deflated they are compact enough to be stored in lockers or storage cabinets on any sized boat. This level of boat hull protection has never been so practical and so easy.
