Rope Side Fender

Rope Side Fender For Canal Narrowboats

Rope Side Fender

Regular price £16.00

Created specially for Trafalgar Marine, these all rope side fenders are a must for purists who don't like the look of cheaper rubber/plastic equivalents.

Each fender has around sixteen metres of black polypropylene rope knotted in a decorative fashion. Taking around an hour to make, these traditional side fenders look especially great on the sides of trads and tugs.

The fender has a single loop coming out of the top. Attaching line can be purchased separately. Using rope side fenders instead of rubber equivalents reduces the noise of your boat hitting the sides when moored on a hard standing.

If your narrowboat doesn't have any attaching points on the roof you can also purchase fender hooks for attaching your side fenders  

Rope Fender Size

  • Diameter: 10cm
  • Length: 38cm


Feedback From Happy Customers

Hi Just to say thanks for the excellent service - ordered new fenders on Sunday evening and they arrived first thing this morning.  They look great.


Michael, Just a short note to say thank you for your attention to detail and your kind gesture too. It is unusual in business these days to come across people who really know what customer care means and you obviously do, here is a picture of my little tug "Serenity" - she is the recipient of the new fenders bought from you. Many thanks I look forward to doing more business with you

Thank you very much for my order which arrived safely yesterday. I am very pleased with it all and for the splendid service I received


Hi Michael, thanks for your very efficient service with our 2 orders . The fenders are on the boat and the mooring line has arrived here at home, ready to go on the boat on Sat. We will recommend you to our boating friends in the future


Hi Michael, the tipcat has arrived and the whole set is great! I am very pleased and will be singing your praises as I chug around the cut


I just want to I am very pleased with the order, the quality of the rope, the work carried out, the communication with me when I had made an error with the order and the speed in which the order was received.


Dear Michael.  My mooring rope arrived this morning and once again I have received prompt efficient service from your company. What a pity you only deal in boat gear!  You should branch out into groceries or white goods where the people consider efficiency and service to be a memory from an era long gone.
