We received this email a few days ago, totally unsolicited:
“We put Coppercoat™ on our boat 4 year’s ago. it is brilliant; each time we lift out all we do is jet wash and it\’s as good as new. We have received many envious comments from those having to deal with traditional antifouling. It is probably the best investment we made, saving us lots of time and lots of money too. I can’t rate the product highly enough. Please feel free to use this in you testimonials section. Sue & Brian K.”

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 were recently contacted by the owner of a Coppercoated™ boat, “Mardi Gras”, that he believed had been treated around 12 years ago, by a previous owner. We happened to remember that his boat was previously owned by the (then) Commodore of Christchurch Sailing Club. The boat was actually treated in 1992, over 20 years ago! We were able to supply the current owner with some pictures of his boat from 1993. And yes, the Coppercoat™ is still working “brilliantly” on Mardi Gras, based in Falmouth.

A recent email from a happy customer:
We haven’t bought any conventional antifoul for twenty years. Our first experience with Coppercoat™ was on a new Hallberg Rassy 352 on which we cruised extensively in the Baltic, Mediterranean, America Nova Scotia and the Caribbean.
Our second 10 year experience with copper coat is on a 30 year old Duellist 32. English Channel, French canals, Baltic and the Netherlands.
The product has been excellent on both boats and is still in good condition. Phots to follow.
PS We are so pleased with the performance of the product that we are willing for you to use our name as a recommendation.”

During 2011/12 the Danish boating magazine “BadNyt” ran a trial of 11 anti-fouls, including 3 from International, 2 from Hempel, 2 from Jotun and of course, Coppercoat™. We are delighted to announce that Coppercoat™ was declared the clear winner, being the only product given 5 stars out of 5, showing no fouling (not even slime) when the test boat was lifted.
See below for the test results.

Back in March, Steve Blanchard of Poole Sea Safari (www.pooleseasafari.com) had Coppercoat™ applied to his commercial rib. The smooth and non-absorbent epoxy surface gave immediate improvements in hull speed and efficiency, so much so in fact that Steve calculated his fuel saving this year alone will more than recoup the cost of his Coppercoat™ application.
He wrote “…we have seen a massive decrease in the amount of fuel used, I kid you not, even compared to when she was brand new. In our 7 month season, we use around £25,000 of fuel. So far we are averaging about 15% decrease in fuel consumption, which should save me just under £4000 this year.” The question for motorboat owners becomes not “Can I afford Coppercoat™?” but instead, “can I afford not to have Coppercoat™?”!

We have always had a strong following amongst the leisure boating community, with most Coppercoat™ treated boats being between 25 and 45ft in length. But increasingly Coppercoat™ is being used by larger leisure boats and super-yachts. In the last month alone Coppercoat™ has been applied to the 49m motor-yacht “T6” in New Zealand and a 45m catamaran in Abu Dhabi (see attached pictures). Other super-yachts using Coppercoat™ include the 57m yacht “Pan orama” treated in Greece and the 33m motor-yacht “Beothuk” treated in the USA.
