Minimize drag & damage. Maximize performance & protection.


Don’t let your asset get foul.

As wonderful as life in the water is, it can really take its toll on a hull. Marine growth is a fact of life for vessels, especially if the vessel is kept in the water for long periods of time. Antifouling is a type of paint applied to the bottom of a vessel, as well the exposed shaft and propellers. Biocide toxins are released from the paint, reducing marine growth and protecting your vessel’s bottom.

The protective antifouling or bottom painting process improves the efficiency of your propulsion system, minimizes fuel usage, and elevates performance, saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint.

Different antifouling coats for different boats.

While a larger investment often means greater protection, different antifouling coats pair better with certain boats. Selecting the correct bottom paint depends on the type of vessel, the materials it’s composed of, the desired finish, and, of course, your personal preference.

From aluminum to fiberglass, our experts protect vessels made from all different materials. From marine paint to gelcoat, we’re familiar with every finish your hull could ask for. And from metal coatings to high-performance coatings, we carry every type of bottom paint you should ever need.
