Underwater Hull Cleaning & Propeller Polishing

The purpose of underwater hull cleaning and propeller polishing is to remove biological roughness or fouling. 

A build-up of marine fouling can lead to increased drag, resulting in a detrimental impact on a vessel’s hydrodynamic performance and hence the relationship between speed, power performance and fuel consumption.  Fouling, particularly in the case of a prolific build-up of hard or shell fouling like barnacles or tubeworm, can cause turbulence, cavitation and noise, frequently affecting the performance of sonars, speed logs and other hull mounted sensors.

Proper cleaning removes all traces of fouling and does not remove or damage the coating or cause any increased surface roughness.

In economic terms, high return of a relatively cheap investment can be obtained by propeller polishing. Propeller polishing will not only save fuel but also a well-cleaned propeller gains speed.

Underwater maintenance and inspections. Hull cleaning, propeller polishing, anode installation, clearing of blockages and much more.

Hull cleaning

Proper cleaning removes all traces of fouling and does not remove or damage the coating or cause any increased surface roughness. Underwater cleaning is performed manual by a diver with brushes and specific tools.

Underwater Repairs

Small repairs can sometimes be done underwater, it’s quick and avoids the need to go to dry dock. Anode installation, clearing of blockages and much more. Request an inspection to analyze the problem and get a quote.

Propeller Polishing

The best efficiency on your fuel investments. Therefore a well maintained polished propeller is a cost and time effective asset for a vessel, a low investment with high return.

“What makes it most special though is the welcoming friendliness of the staff. They take their job very serious and take extra time showing or explaining things and upcoming questions. Or just to have a little chat after an exiting day of diving.

Thanks a lot for this amazing experience!”

“We’ve just completed our PADI Wreck Diving course with them. Exceptional instructors and all of the staff are friendly and accommodating. Safety is a very high priority and the whole experience from planning our dives to talking them through afterwards was great. Highly recommended!

“It has been our third dive trip to Bonaire, we were looking to do something different and explore new dive sites, especially those that are not marked on the official map. It was a success! I will never forget our Playa Frans dive, it was magical.”
