What is Fendrr Tools?

Fendrr Tools is the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ for yachting. We aim to create numerous tools to change the way we go about our jobs within the yachting industry. Fendrr tools will always be free for crew and for a limited time it is also free for yachts. 

When setting up Fendrr for the first time, think of there being two sides to the system. We have the yacht side and the crew side. The yacht side is done through the website and the crew side is primarily done through the App.

To set up a boat you will need to register through this website, check out the ‘Getting Started’ tab for more info. To register crew, you will need to install the app and register through the app. This crew account will then stay with you for the duration of your yachting career. All you need to do is link your app to the yachts department once you join by scanning the yachts department QR Code. If you leave the yacht, you can un-link your crew account through the app ready to link to the next yacht.

We have recently changed the app to make it a Web App. Meaning it is essentially a link to a website however it acts just like an app we are all used to. This makes it a lot quicker and easier to bring updates to the app and to keep improving. To install the app on your phone just scan the QR code below and then save it to your home screen. Go to the ‘Getting started’ tab for more info. 

Stock control 

This tool utilises the camera on our Smartphone and turns it into a barcode scanner. You can Add, Remove and Lookup stock by just scanning a QR code / barcode. This automatically updates the stock online (viewable via the website). You can also set a warning threshold which automatically highlights any stock which falls below your warning threshold. You can also export straight to Excel at a push of a button. Staying on top of stock levels has never been easier with this tool.

Task Lists 

Task List is a tool which allows you to create and share tasks with everyone else in your department. Create a task, upload a photo, write brief description and edit the task as you go. The lists are fully customizable to cater to your vessels need. Here are some examples of useful task lists we could create:

Todays Jobs

Deck Jobs

Yard Jobs

Night Jobs

Wish List

Set up Reference Photos


This allows you to create checklists which can be ticked when completed. When a crew member ticks off the task, it will show who has ticked it off and at what time. These are quick and simple checklists which could cover repeated tasks such as pre departure checklists, standard operating procedures or stowage for sea. Again, these are fully customizable to cater for your vessel.

Sign in / out board

This comes with two modes, ‘At sea’ and ‘In port’. In port acts like any sign in /out board except its done through the App. Meaning if you forget to sign out like we all occasionally do, we can still sign out when we are off the boat. The second mode, ‘At Sea’ is used as an inside / outside log. When signing yourself outside, the app automatically takes the time in UTC and Lat/Long of when going outside. Obviously this would be useful for safety reasons. Both boards can be viewed live from the website or an Ipad and will update automatically every 60 seconds. You can change the mode between ‘In Port’ and ‘At Sea’ from the website. 

Notice Board

From here we can upload documents for the crew to see. There are two permanent folders called ‘Muster list’ and ‘Watch schedule’. However, we can create as many as we want if we have more info for crew, for example there may be specific info regarding the port etc. 


All the tools are accessible via the app and through the website, meaning your HOD can keep an eye on the progress in real time from their computer and crew can use the App from their smart phones. The website is designed to give you more control over the tools and the app is designed to be quick, simple and efficient with everyday tasks. 

Fendrr tools shouldn’t replace face to face conversations, the Bosun, lead deckhand or HOD. It is a great way to supplement how we work and will improve the efficiency of the department.

There are many more exciting tools on the way, designed to make working on a yacht much more efficient.
