Polishing & Antifouling


Antifouling is the process of protecting your hull from marine growth by applying a protective paint layer to the bottom of your boat. If your boat lives afloat then the seawater and marine particles can build-up on the underside of your hull. This growth of marine algae can significantly affect the performance of your hull and your fuel efficiency. Heavy levels of growth on the hull can slow powerboats by 5knots and could increase fuel consumption by over 30%. The frequency of antifouling depends on the usage and storage of your boat. Boats that live afloat or that are used regularly should be checked every year to assess whether it needs reapplying. Boats that live ashore and have been washed down may only need antifouling every other year. The team at Xtreme Marine can assess your hull and give you their professional opinion once your boat is ashore.
