Yokohama Fenders Portsmouth

Specialised navy fenders

JF Fendercare offers fenders designed for naval use. This includes non-marking fenders for naval operations, and submarine fenders.

We developed the lightweight grey navy fender in close cooperation with Yokohama, following extensive trials and input from the UK Royal Navy. The lightweight fenders have a grey rubber outer skin to ensure no marking of naval vessels, or other vessels with non-marking requirements, and comes with a non-magnetic metal mouthpiece at both ends.

Submarine fenders

As the trusted solution for submarine berthing, hydro-pneumatic fenders are extensively used by navies across the world.

To maintain their position hydro-pneumatic fenders are deployed vertically and are water ballasted to suit the hull shape and freeboard. A counterweight is attached to the fender’s base for stability, of which the weight, shape and method of can be adjusted to suit specific requirements.
