Boat mooring involves anchoring the boat in a secure location, usually in a harbor or marina, or in a bay or cove outside the harbor. There are several types of equipment and techniques that can be used to anchor a boat safely and stably. These include windlasses, which make it easier to raise the anchor, bow or stern thrusters mounted on the bow or stern of large boats to facilitate lateral and horizontal movements to maintain position, and fenders, essential to protect the sides of the boat from possible shocks during maneuvers.

A fender is a piece of shipboard equipment that can be used to protect the boat from impact with docks or other boats while at anchor. It usually consists of inflatable cushions or foam mattresses which are placed on the sides of the boat to cushion shocks.

There are several types of fenders available:

  • Inflatable fenders: These models are generally made of PVC or rubber and can be inflated or deflated as required. They are lightweight and easy to handle, and can be stored compactly when not in use.
  • Foam fenders: These models are made of polyethylene foam or polyurethane foam, and are generally stronger than inflatable fenders. They are also heavier and more difficult to handle, but can be more durable and offer better impact protection.
  • Rigid fenders: These models are made of hard plastic and are generally heavier and more difficult to handle than other types of fender. They are also more expensive.

As well as many forms: 

Round, cylindrical, ladder format, half-moon, articulated, etc. You choose


This category also includes bow thrusters. These are pieces of equipment that propel the boat in one direction or maintain its position thanks to a small motor mounted at the bow of the boat.

They are often used to help maneuver the boat in confined spaces, such as harbors, marinas or a tight area, or to hold the boat in place while moored.

There are several types of thruster, including electric, hydraulic, fixed, retractable and external. 

Hydraulic bow thrusters are more powerful than electric ones, but consume more energy. 

Retractable bow thrusters can be retracted or retracted while sailing, minimizing drag and reducing water resistance as the boat moves forward, which can improve sailing performance.

Bow thrusters can be operated remotely, usually by remote control or a fixed control box. The choice of bow thruster model depends on the needs and size of the boat.

The windlass is an essential piece of equipment for mooring a boat. It is a winch that allows the anchor and anchor chain to be hauled up from the bottom of the water. The windlass can be operated manually or electrically, depending on the boat, the length of chain line and the owner's preference.

An electric windlass is often easier to use than a manual one, as it can be operated remotely and requires less physical effort to wind up the mooring line. There are several windlass variants, such as vertical and horizontal windlasses, which differ in length and lifting capacity.

Windlasses are boat accessories designed to be sturdy and reliable, as they must be able to pull up a heavy anchor and anchor chain (chain or rope) from the bottom of the water. They are also often designed to be watertight to protect the internal mechanisms from seawater. The anchors and chains used depend on the size and category of the boat, as well as the navigation zone in which it is to be anchored.


A quality anchor, a sturdy davit and the right mooring line are key to ensuring stability and peace of mind during your maritime adventures.

Boat anchors are designed to hold the boat firmly in place, whether in calm or rough waters. They are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, such as plow anchors, grapple anchors, flat anchors and more. Each type of anchor is adapted to specific bottom conditions, whether sand, mud, gravel or rock. Anchor choice depends on boat type, size and location.

Davits are accessories installed at the bow of the boat to secure the anchor during anchoring. They provide a sturdy attachment point and allow easy handling of the anchor. Davits can be made of stainless steel, aluminum or other corrosion-resistant materials to ensure maximum durability.

Mooring lines, such as chains or ropes, are used to connect the anchor to the boat. They must be strong enough to withstand the forces exerted by wind, currents and waves. Chains are often used for their strength and weight, while ropes offer greater elasticity and flexibility. The choice of anchor line depends on the weight of the anchor.
