The Team at Floating Dock Services
Boat antifouling services: for yachts and launches
Boat antifouling is easy at the Floating Dock, Westhaven, Auckland – you can choose to do it yourself, or we can do it for you.
To antifoul your boat on the Floating Dock, you'll need to arrange either an overnight haul out, or a weekend lift and hold. You can see the prices for these options here – but do book well in advance, as these extended boat haul-out options are very popular.
If you decide to do your own boat antifouling, the wet sanding process will be a lot easier for you because we’ll thoroughly water blast your boat’s hull as soon as it’s hauled out.
Which types of boats can be antifouled on the Floating Dock?
The Floating Dock is suitable for yacht antifouling as well as launch/motor boat antifouling:
Would you like us to antifoul your boat for you?
What is Propspeed? Can I have a Propspeed application by itself?
Propspeed is a product that inhibits growth on propellers and running gear. It creates a long-lasting, ultra smooth surface. In terms of boat performance, this means less drag, more speed and less fuel usage.
Prop speed application is available as a stand-alone service. Simply request it when you book your haul out on the Floating Dock. We’ll be able to give you a price on the phone.
The Floating Dock is an authorised Propspeed applicator.
How environmentally-friendly is it to antifoul a boat on the Floating Dock?
Doing your boat antifoul on the Floating Dock is a great environmental choice, as the run-off is controlled and collected in sediment tanks where it's filtered. Once the run-off has been filtered, it's clean enough to be disposed of in the sewerage system.
