Why Do I Need an Underwater Hull Clean & What Are The Benefits?
- Reduces Fuel Consumption
Justin, a Captain of a 258ft American superyacht, told our team that a dirty hull will cost them an extra 30% of fuel – this is hundreds of thousands of litres. Owners of a motor cruiser boat will make their money back and even save more after receiving an underwater hull clean.
- Reduces Vibration in Your Running Gear
Barnacles attached to the bottom of your hull can cause vibration. However, if you still have vibration after a professional hull clean, then we strongly suggest you have a marina mechinic check out your powertrain.
- Improves Power & Performance for Higher Sale Price
A smooth hull means a smooth ride. After getting your hull professionally cleaned, it should perform just as good as new! A nice smooth test drive is a key selling point.
- Extend Your Next Antifoul
For those of you who don’t know, antifoul is the process of protecting your hull from marine growth. Having a good coat of prop-speed, good quality antifouls and good condition of anodes will help extend the timeframe of when you’ll need your next antifoul.
- Maximise Your Speed!
If you’re into boat racing, you will understand and know the difference between a dirty and clean hull! Getting your hull professionally cleaned is the key to getting race-ready.
- Inspects Areas You’ve Never Seen Before
Most boat owners never see the hull of their vessel. However, the hull is one of the most important parts of a boat. After conducting a professional hull clean or inspection, our team always provide a detailed report, so you know exactly what is going on underneath.
