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.
