Superyacht Fender Manufacturer


Corporate partner


France & United Kingdom



Since launching in 2011, DEFENDA has developed a world class range of inflatable superyacht fenders and accessories. Drawing on decades of in-house experience, we deliver practical solutions to real life problems. Sustainability has always been at the heart of everything we do and one of our most important projects has been the development of the world’s first environmentally friendly fender cover. Hundreds of thousands of fender covers are disposed of every year; all made from Petro-chemical products and almost none of them recycled.

Our new Bioprene FENDASKIN is made from organic, sustainable materials. They look great, last much longer than other covers and we take them back for recycling at end of life. We’re very excited about the contribution this new product can make to sustainability within the yachting sector, with the potential to save hundreds of tons of unrecyclable material from going to landfill.

By launching the Database of Sustainable Solutions, Water Revolution is leading the way to a more environmentally responsible future.”
