Patented combination boarding step and fender. They are manufactured from the same injection moulded PVC construction as Dan-Fender® heavy duty inflatable fenders. The unique shape provides hull protection as well as a boarding step. The high topsides of many modern vessels make boarding difficult from either a marina finger or from small dinghies. The combined fender and step feature allow them to be rigged before entering a marina, allowing the crew to safely and easily step onto the pontoon without resorting to leaping.
