Shipyard Supply Co (SSCo) has announced the launch of its own brand of tender mooring whips for superyachts.
Manufactured in the UK, they are the most well-built, reliable and yacht-friendly tender whips on the market. Whips are available in painted GRP or carbon to suit yacht tenders of all sizes.
Tender whips are designed to keep the tender or jet ski a safe distance from the yacht, preventing damage to either vessel when tenders are moored alongside. The specially designed, heavy duty poles, mounted in stainless steel bases, pull the tender away from the hull by applying continuous variable pressure between the yacht and tender. Spring lines keep the tender from moving out of position.
Seeing a gap in the market for a high quality tender whip, SSCo has developed its whips using a new fibreglass manufacturing method, offering greater multidirectional load capacity and has incorporated stainless-steel fittings (as opposed to plastic) so that the aesthetics match the functionality. All GRP options come in a white high-gloss finish as standard, however SSCo are uniquely able to offer custom painting and finishing to match the yacht’s requirements. All SSCo whips come in two sections for ease of transport and storage and are available for same day dispatch from the UK.
Complete whip kits include two fibreglass poles, two flush deck mounts and polyester whip lines.
The range suits all yacht tenders from 3m – 20m+ weighing upwards of 15,000kg. SSCo also manufactures all deck sockets and can provide over the rail or clamp to stanchion custom mounts as required.
