Explore our options for Boat Antifouling of Your Vessel’s Hull

The application of boat antifouling paint is the most frequent painting job carried out by boat owners and one of the most important that Gloss Boats Marine Spraying can perform for you. Once fouling has established a foothold on your boat’s hull, it will rapidly spread across the surface, causing increased fuel consumption, reduced cruising speeds and other problems. Prevention is preferable to the cure, which involves removing the fouling by manually scraping it off.

Key Benefits of Our Marine Antifouling Coatings

There are numerous critical reasons to keep a hull free from fouling, and at Gloss Boats Marine Spraying, we know to help you choose the most appropriate antifouling product for your vessel. The three important benefits of antifouling paint are safety, efficiency, and protection.

Heavy fouling reduces the boat’s responsiveness because the organisms’ added weight can make the hull sit lower in the water than designed. This has obvious safety implications in heavy weather conditions. The fouling also increases drag, which results in increased fuel consumption or lower sail efficiency and displaced centre of effort.

Antifouling paint protects your boat against marine growth on the hull. Prolonged growth of certain types of fouling will damage the substrate of the hull, especially wood and fibreglass. Fouling can also clog the water intake and cause damage to the engines.

Choose Gloss Boats Marine Spraying for the effective and lasting application of antifouling paint in NZ. We are based at Tamaki Marine Park in Auckland, where our facilities can accommodate most recreational and small commercial boats.
