Artist Julia Maldonado tells her story of how she ended up promoting awareness of the marine environment through art. During the summer, a female crew sails and competes with this boat, around the Swedish coast to spread the message of environmentally friendly choices, such as this 100% biocide free Seaboost Overdrive antifouling paint.
Antifouling and hull friction are among the most crucial factors affecting the boat’s performance, driving characteristics and fuel economy. In 2016 Seaboost was the jury’s favorite of a total of almost 100 environmental projects that competed for the Baltic Sea project’s support. The reason is that the biocides used in antifouling paints are a serious and permanent environmental problem for marine life. A Swedish survey also shows that antifouling paints are one of the worst sources of microplastics that come into our waters.
