About Us

The Impact Story

Fueled by a passion for boats, unified by a love of the water

IMPACT was founded on a Colorado lake in 2018 with the simple idea that we could do it better. After a windy morning spent hassling with clunky, old cylindrical fenders, we realized that everything in boating had evolved – design, innovation, materials, electronics, style. Why were we still protecting our most cherished investment with fenders that hadn’t changed in decades? 

With IMPACT, we’re changing the paradigm. Superior protection guides everything. The highest quality materials, the thoughtfully executed design, the sleek aesthetic, and the versatility are innovations borne from the relentless pursuit of doing it better.

Let us obsess over the details, so you can have more fun on the water.
