With a Slammer Fender, customers’ boats are safer

Slammer Fender

Sept 21, 2021

Even the most mundane in-water service project can turn into a headache if the boat being worked on accidentally hits something, resulting in a marred finish. Savvy boatyard owners invest in the protection of a Slammer Integrated Dock Fender system. Made in the USA, it installs directly onto docks and piles to safeguard against upset customers, unbillable repairs and potential insurance claims.

The NMMA Innovation Award-winning Slammer Integrated Dock Fender starts with a 40″ HDPE polymer track that’s mounted directly onto the dock or pile. Simple to install, the only tools needed are a level and a power drill; all stainless-steel hardware is included. A video is at bit.ly/SlammerInstallation.

The Slammer fender has dual integrated bolt ropes that slide onto the track. Available in 40″, 80″, 120″ and custom lengths, the fender is a 9″ H x 6″ D impact-absorbing foam core covered in a replaceable UV- and abrasion-resistant PVC fabric. For boatyards in northern climates, the fender portion is removable for seasonal storage. Built to last, the system has been in use at high-traffic marinas and fuel docks for nearly 10 years.

Available in Marine Blue, Ocean White, Orca Black and Shark Gray, the Slammer Integrated Dock Fender will match virtually any boatyard décor. Plus, color-coding specific areas such as fuel docks makes it simple to direct customers to the right location.

Aside from protecting customers’ investments, the Slammer system is a potential added revenue source. As customers see the ease of not having to deploy fenders, the product sells itself. Slammer Marine offers professional pricing of 15% off listed retail with free shipping. MSRP for the Slammer Integrated Dock Fender starts at $230 USD; products come with a two-year commercial warranty.
