The results have arrived from Coppercoat™ trials undertaken on two new Sunseeker 82 Yachts in Dubai. When these new boats arrived in Dubai both sported the factory approved conventional anti-foul and achieved the factory speed claims when sea-trialled. Both were then lifted and the anti-foul replaced with Coppercoat™. When re-tested, both had gained almost 2 knots of boat speed. The Chairman of Sunseeker Middle East reported “We are amazed and delighted – this scale of increased performance was unexpected and helps to set our boats apart.”
Not only are the boats faster, but more economic too. Running at full speed the choice of Coppercoat™ proved to save approximately 20 gallons of fuel per hour.
