What Our Customers Say About Us 
".... appreciation of quality was immediate. Something as simple as some straps had been really well designed."
"........ provides a particularly neat solution to a problem we had using the standard mounting points. Everything came in very smart wash through net bags which makes rinsing off easy."
"A very happy customer. I want to openly thank (Rapid Marine) for the advice and ultimately the product."
"We have been using these products for sometime now, and can confirm they are top quality."
"We had the stainless steel plastic coated strops before, problem with them, when you change your tender you end up having to have new strops as you can be sure they won't fit, unlike the Rapid marine ones that are fully adjustable, ( we are on our forth tender in five years ) so they have saved us a lot more than they cost , just to add that they were also a lot cheaper than the stainless steel ones we had!"
"Another very satisfied customer of Rapid marine, and no connection with the company."
"First class products, first class quality, first class service."
"Would not go anywhere else for such products."

Rapid Marine at Southampton Boat Show 2014 - Supporting Your Tender Behind!

by Rapid Welding 30. September 2014 10:15

Have you read about J'ade, the 196ft long vessel designed by Italian company CRN, which comes complete with - amongst other things - a 'drive in' garage for its tender? If not, and your into hearing about the spends of the super wealthy, have a thing for James Bond style gadgetry, or, if you simply like to stare, sigh, and think, 'if only my boat had one of those', then the J'ade is definitely worth a Google. 

J'ade has an indoor pool, an aquarium, and a 'drive-in garage' for its tender.

If, however, like most of us mere mortals, your boat -or your pockets- won't stretch to a hydraulic-operated hatch with room to store an eight-metre tender without the use of a lift to hoist it out of the water, here are a few alternative suggestions.

The Rapid Marine Promise to YOU!

Rapid Marine is part of the Rapid Group of Companies offering quality products, quality advice and above all, quality service. As the market leader in lifting slings and tie down kits for tenders, Rapid Marine supply many well-known brands - we are the preferred supplier to Williams Performance Jet Tenders, and our customers include Princess Motor Yacht and PR Nautica. Our adjustable lifting slings are designed to fit 99% of all tenders, can be used with any type of lifting equipment, and are manufactured in the UK and certified to European Safety Specifications. 

The PSP Southampton Boat Show

Two weeks ago the team from Rapid Marine were at the PSP Southampton Boat Show, and with more than 112,000 people descending on Mayflower Park & Town Quay to enjoy 10 days of boating and fabulous weather, it was certainly a great success for all involved. According to reports, sales were up on previous years for many companies, and we came away with several potential customers and many new leads, not to mention lots more ideas!!!!

 Mike Evers was at the helm for the duration of the ten day show, presenting Rapid Marine's new concept Lifting Slings and Tie down kits for tenders. The Jet ski Crane Sling, an adjustable PWC sling manufactured to complement a wide range of Jet Ski makes and models, was very well received - Interestingly, these slings were also on display at the world’s most revered yacht show in Monaco last week, courtesy of one of our customers, Super Yacht Tenders & Toys.
