10% Increase in Fuel Efficiency
“I just had Eco-Clad’s latest technology, Eco-Clad Fast Coat applied to M/V Blue Grotto, our 62ft (LOA) Selene trawler. Although I have only run the boat for a few hundred miles since application, I have found at least a 10% increase in fuel efficiency as a result of the reduced water drag that Eco-Clad provides. Now sitting at our slip in a Key West “clean marina,” I am also thankful for Eco-Clad’s environmental benefits.Eco-Clad Fast Coat technology was new to the boatyard, so to ensure a top quality job as well as training for the boatyard staff, Eco-Clad provided their own onsite expert who supervised every step of hull preparation and application.
I have good reason to be anticipating the benefits of great antifouling protection as well as improved fuel economy for many months to come.”
