Mooring Buoys
Yacht Mooring Buoy
Hippo yacht mooring buoys are manufactured from a
moulded core of closed cell foam covered in protective
polyurethane elastomer. This makes them virtually
unsinkable, even after suffering severe damage.
The standard range of SB mooring buoys (SB1 – SB7) are
recommended for fore and aft mooring systems.
The standard range of SB soft mooring buoys (SB1S
SB5S) are recommended for single buoy mooring
systems. They are identical in construction to the SB
range except for the use of a exible closed-cell foam
which allows greater impact absorption.

An optional SB pick-up with a large loop handle can
be attached. This makes the retrieval of the strop easy.
