This video was shot by Townsend Bay Marine in Washington State, USA. They specialize in building and refitting high end yachts.
This shows how quick an application of Coppercoat™ can be. Bear in mind that this is a heavily built Cheoy Lee Trawler 46. There appears to be three guys painting, they started painting at 09.30 and had finished the application to the port side by around 15.00.
If you are interested in an application of Coppercoat™ in this area, please contact them below.

We are pleased to announce that Coppercoat™ anti-foul has now been certified by Lloyd’s Register. This means that it can now be used on ships that are built and managed to Lloyd’s Register specifications. Therefore Coppercoat™ can now be used by even the largest commercial ships and super-yachts as well as personal leisure boats. (Certificate copies available on request)

I am sure you are all aware of Rachel and Paul Chandler’s harrowing ordeal in 2009. It is nice to see they are planning on finishing their trip. Having Coppercoated™ their yacht during the refit, at least their anti-fouling is something they will not have to worry about, leaving them free to avoid those pirates! Good luck Rachel and Paul from all here at Coppercoat™.

Yesterday I had the rare opportunity to enjoy a sunny afternoon at Dell Quay Yacht Yard. Whilst there I took a few pictures of some of the boats present using Coppercoat™. These boats included the owner of the yards personal fishing boat and a yacht I remember supplying 20 years ago. I was pleased to see and hear how well these boats are performing. I must get out more often! (Please note the boats which are still brown are newly treated and yet to be launched and hence have yet to turn to the normal verdigris colour.)

We are delighted to have won the prestigious Eco Friendly Business category of the Asian Marine & Boating Awards 2011, held in conjunction with the China (Shanghai) International Boat Show. The award was presented to Nigel MacFarlane (Coppercoat™ representative for Hong Kong) by Yang Xin Fa (Secretary General of the Chinese Boatbuilding Association) at a gala dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel in Shanghai.
It is very rare for any anti-foul to receive an award for being environmentally friendly, so this is a major coup for us and welcome recognition that Coppercoat™ is an environmentally sensible choice.
By commonly remaining effective for between 10 to 20 years, anti-fouling a boat once with low-leaching Coppercoat™ is clearly far more responsible than re-anti-fouling every year with a standard eroding anti-foul paint. And you don’t have 10 to 20 years worth of painting apparel such as rollers, brushes, tins and plastic paints trays to bury in a landfill site either!

At the recent London Boat Show it was great to catch up with old customers, Sue and Stuart from Sails and Summits, who Coppercoated their Dufour 455 ”Esseness” 3 years ago. They were planning on lifting her out for her first lift since being treated and promised to send us pictures of the results. Whilst we don’t as a rule recommend that you leave a boat in the water for 3 years without a clean, it does show what Coppercoat™ is capable of. If you are looking for a holiday with a difference, why not check out their website www.sailsandsummits.co.uk/
Below are the pictures of “Esseness” when lifted:

Clean and on the hard.

As many of you will have seen in the past, there are always a good number of new boats treated with Coppercoat™ at boat shows all around the world. During a quiet five minutes at the recent London International Boat show, I took the opportunity to take a few pictures of some of the boats present treated with Coppercoat™. If any of you have any more pictures of boats showing off their Coppercoat™, please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just some of the manufacturers we currently supply at a build stage are Sessa, Sunseeker, Cornish Crabbers, Solaris, Southerly, Najad, Discovery and Hanse.

The Medway (or as it’s known locally, The Mudway!) is a notoriously bad area in the UK for marine fouling. The following picture was posted on a well known yachting forum. It is rare to have Coppercoat™ tested against a traditional antifoul on the same boat. By the way, Coppercoat™ is the clean product on the keel not the barnacle covered blue product on the hull…!
Here is a copy of the post:

|Coppercoat vs Conventional Anti Foul
My keel and rudder have Coppercoat & the hull xxxxx (a conventional antifoul) so it makes for an interesting comparison after a season on the Medway (without a mid season clean).
I’ve jet washed the mud and slime off and there was no weed. Some of the barnacles were removed with the jet wash, but the majority wait for the scraper.
