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.”

Prior to using Propspeed, Argo was making work difficult for its fishing crew, often cruising at a sluggish 5 knots.

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."

Prior to using Propspeed, Yankee Freedom III had significant growth on its prop shafts, causing severe strain on the engine. Captain Rick Gauron has become such a fan that he insists on having Propspeed on his own yacht too!
“Before using Propspeed, we had as much as 4 inches of growth on the propeller shaft. With Propspeed applied, our running gear is now free of growth.”

Propspeed protects the running gear of this 138-foot Troy Marine yacht and has since Day 1. Logging tens of thousands of nautical miles each year, The Big Blue is saving big on fuel.

The HMTSS Te Mataili police vessel now patrols the waters surrounding the South Pacific island nation of Tuvalu with far greater efficiency.
"Te Mataili is using on average 25 liters per hour less fuel than before the refit, equating to approximately a 15 percent reduction in fuel costs."
