Absolute Boat Care


Our team are experts with anti-foul application, both spray and roll on, and knowing the best solution to apply for your requirements. We can decipher the right product for you dependent on your program, whether it be for racing, or to help with lower fuel consumption over a long charter season.

Recently more and more of the racing superyachts are wanting to apply the biocide free foul control slime release coatings as they significantly reduce drag, improve fuel efficiency and therefore reduce CO2 emissions, meaning the yacht is more eco-friendly, and will move faster through the water… therefore improving their competitive edge for racing.

We have the ability to give our clients choice for the method of their anti-foul system application due to the fact that we have such an experienced team. 70% of our clients opt for an airless spray application to ensure an even coverage and better performance due to more paint being applied during the process. The ability to use a spray application means we can achieve a smoother finish giving the added benefit of saving fuel as it allows the boat to travel easier through the water.

Over the years, we have built a fantastic relationship with our Akzo Nobel technical representative to ensure the perfect result, and out of the 350 applications, approximately 35 projects were sandblasted back to bare metal, or primers, and a full new anti foul system applied. We are also authorised Propspeed and Propgold applicators and use one or the other to approximately 80% of jobs.

We are proud of our dedicated team for all their hard work, and achieving this milestone of 350 anti-foul applications. It just goes to show that for the best and most experienced team, our clients keep coming back to Absolute. We look forward to the next 350.

Absolute Boat Care have a number of long standing clients that return for their anti-foul and other finishing services year on year. The First Officer of M/Y Vava comments on the service they have received over the years.

We have been using ABC for our anti-fouling for the last three years and during that time we have always found their service to be of the highest quality as well as being very competitively priced. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
