Ultrasonic Antifouling Expands Approved Installer Network To Meet Soaring Global Demand

Ultrasonic Antifouling – the world’s leading electronic antifouling brand – is expanding its global network of approved installers to meet soaring demand.

The market-leading technology uses sound waves to help stop algae and barnacle growth on boat hulls, season after season.

This maintains hull speeds, cuts fuel bills and reduces the number of costly and laborious lift-outs usually associated with antifouling removal and repainting.

Ultrasonic Antifouling has grown its network of Approved Installation Centres in France, Norway, Japan and Australia and also added new centres in Spain, Croatia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Holland and Slovakia.

The effectiveness of the company’s non-toxic marine antifouling is well proven in the warm waters of the Mediterranean and Caribbean, leading to the addition of new Approved Installation Centres in Grenada plus Trinidad & Tobago.

All new and existing Ultrasonic Antifouling approved installation centres have been carefully selected, based on their proven expertise in marine electronics and their history of high quality aftercare.

As the best antifouling technology, Ultrasonic Antifouling has led the drive to make this technology available to boat owners across the world.

Increasing numbers of marine organisations are selecting Ultrasonic Antifouling as their trusted provider of sonic antifouling, making it the number one brand and the ultimate choice for marine professionals.

Ultrasonic Antifouling is simple to install. Transducers are bonded to the inside of hulls with no through-hull drilling, making them quick and easy to fit.

Boat owners are being supported by an ever-increasing network of approved installers who can give expert support to ensure optimum positioning of the boat antifouling transducers, ensuring that not just hulls are kept clean and barnacle-free but also trims tabs and stern gear as well.

Engineers at these Approved Installation Centres are all trained to give the best advice to ensure that every installation meets the precise requirements of each vessel – whether power or sail – for the waters in which they operate.

The antifouling application is welcomed particularly by boat owners and authorities in environmentally sensitive areas because it does not use chemicals and does not harm fish or marine mammals.

Ultrasonic Antifouling uses low energy, high frequency ultrasonic waves to create movement in the water molecules surrounding the boat hull, cocooning it in an invisible shield of protection from algae and barnacles.

For boats already in the water, installing Ultrasonic Antifouling also makes it much easier to remove any existing growth. Much of it will die and drop off as the boat moves through the water.

Ultrasonic Antifouling offers different versions to help sail and power boat owners get the best out of their system:

  • Ultra 10 – for boats up to 10m in length
  • Ultra 20 – for boats up to 20m in length
  • Ultra Dual – which automatically switches between shore power and batteries to ensure the system is always running
  • Ultra Solar – uses solar power for boats moored away from mains connections.

Earlier this year the respected Motor Boat & Yachting magazine named Ultrasonic Antifouling Product of the Month with a resounding five-star MBY rating in its antifouling review.

Ultrasonic Antifouling’s Managing Director David Sothcott said there had been huge interest from marine suppliers across the world, all of them keen to make the process of antifouling boats faster and easier.

“We are delighted that so many companies, especially those operating in the tropical waters of Australia and the Caribbean, are so keen to become approved suppliers,” he said.

“We remain very discerning with regard to whom we trust to stock and install the brand, as we naturally aim for complete customer satisfaction and support.”

He added: “The environmental advantages of this non-toxic and low-energy solution have really caught the imagination of companies who love the sea and wish to preserve the environment by offering a highly effective long-term antifouling for their customers’ boats.”

Marine Electrical is the new Spanish sales and installation centre at Torrevieja, Costa Blanca. Spokesman Kevin Richardson said: “We have installed many Ultrasonic Antifouling systems to widely differing craft and all with a high degree of success.

“After seeing the effects of increasingly downgraded conventional antifouling systems over the years due to environmental pressures, we knew that an alternative would have to be found, especially in the warm waters off Spain.”

Kees Hoek of Dutch installer CCA Yachtservice B.V said: “Realising that production, application and use of conventional antifouling systems leaves a considerable environmental footprint, the innovative, cost effective and eco-friendly solution from Ultrasonic Antifouling was very appealing to us.”
