This winter we are offering to beat our competitors quotes for Antifouling by 10%. Read on for more information ...

Antifouling is a part of the regular maintenance program for a vessel.

Antifouling or bottom paint is a specialised coating applied to the bottom of the hull to slow the growth of organisms - barnacles and plant material. Without antifoul your boats speed will decrease and your fuel consumption will increase. Environmentally, there is an increased risk of transporting harmful marine growth to other areas like the mediterranean fan worm. We recommend a good clean and the reapplication of a liberal coating of antifouling paint before you travel from your home port to another region of New Zealand.

A good general rule is an annual clean and reapplication of antifouling, but many boaties find a good thorough coat of paint lasts longer than this, with their more frequent maintenance being a waterblast.
