This is a newly-developed direct-boarding system. The fenders are stowed inside the vessel and moved into working position hydraulically.
With a telescopic boarding gangway, they make boarding very efficient and easy for passengers, as the walkways are stepless and wave-compensated, so always in contact with the tender. These flexible fenders are Fassmer's own design, enabling both small and long tenders to operate with the special tender-fender system.
Along with its tender-fender system, Fassmer supplies a comprehensive package that includes its own outer shell plating gate and casing as a modular system.
