World-leading commercial fishing shipbuilder Padmos finds Propspeed reduces fuel consumption and load
“The data that we gathered suggest a clear improvement in the performance of the vessel with Propspeed from the day it was applied. Impressed by these results, we’re now implementing Propspeed on all our vessels and recommending it to our customers.”

Naval Architect, Padmos
In the commercial fishing industry where vessel performance is one of, if not the, most important factors, Propspeed helps to keep their vessels running smoothly and reliably in the most challenging conditions, with increased speed and efficiency, and reduced maintenance.
"La temporada pasada, me aplicaron productos Propspeed en la hélice, el timón, las luces subacuáticas y el transductor. ¡El Fat Tuna tiene un aspecto igual de limpio saliendo del agua que el día que entró a principio de temporada!"

Prior to using Foulfree™, Propspeed’s foul-release transducer coating, the Atlantic Shark Institute faced the challenge of biofouling, which impacted the performance of tags deployed on sharks.
“From our perspective, Foulfree is a must-have for anyone who conducts research and uses tags to transmit data”

Executive Director, Atlantic Shark Institue
Prior to using Propspeed, Argo was making work difficult for its fishing crew, often cruising at a sluggish 5 knots.
"We don’t get to see our family a lot so if we can do anything to help us get home faster, get home and eat dinner, go see my girlfriend, my mom, my dogs, we’re going to do it."

Based in Lyttelton, New Zealand and part of the Stark Group of companies owned and operated by the Stark family, Ocean Fisheries Ltd. was started in 1967 to encompass the company’s commercial fishing operations.
"The benefits of Propspeed are definitely noticeable in terms of a much cleaner propeller when we haul the vessel for survey, maintenance and repairs. Application of Propspeed has now become a must-do job at all haul outs."
CEO, Ocean Fisheries
Paul Alcock has owned Eximius since 2015 and until recently, had never seen her reach 8 knots through the water under motor.
"Teníamos una corriente de 2 nudos en contra, lo empujé, subí las RPM a 2.200 y estábamos haciendo 8,3 nudos, 6,3 nudos sobre el suelo, ¡eso es más que sorprendente!"
Propietario de Eximius, Catalina 34
When Lauderdale Marine Center (LMC) had the job of applying Propspeed to the pods, props, scoops, strainers and underwater lights of the Delta 88 motor yacht Knot Again, our US Propspeed guru, Mark Billingsley was more than happy to help out.
"With regard to Propspeed, Delta Powerboats’ American office has not imported a single boat without the application of Propspeed."
