Propspeed Partners With Budget Marine - Caribbean
Auckland, New Zealand – Propspeed, leading innovator of underwater foul-release coatings, announced today it has partnered with Budget Marine to offer its full product line to boaters in the Caribbean. With an overriding commitment to its customers and large footprint in the Caribbean, Budget Marine is well known as the leading retailer and wholesaler of pleasure boat marine equipment in the region.
“We chose to partner with Budget Marine because of their great reputation for second-to-none customer support in the Caribbean, and their ability to supply the whole territory across multiple countries easily and reliably,” said Chris Baird, CEO, Propspeed. “We understand that with a territory as spread out as the Caribbean, its critical to be able to support all of our customers when needed. The combination of the Propspeed technical support team, and the superior customer service from Budget Marine is a winning combination.”
“Our staff focuses on supplying equipment and supplies that stand up to specific challenges that conditions in the Caribbean pose to boaters,” said Jolyon Ferron, Product Manager, Budget Marine. “Our warm waters aren’t only good for cruising, but also ideal for significant marine growth. Propspeed is the perfect solution for protecting underwater assets from growth and corrosion and it does so in an environmentally safe way.”
“We are proud to be tested and recommended by such a well-regarded brand,” said Chris Baird, CEO, Propspeed. “The FarSounder collision avoidance sonar technology is integral to the safety of ocean-going vessels and Foulfree has proven once again to effectively protect transducers with no degradation in performance.”
Propspeed’s ultra-slick topcoat is specially formulated to prevent marine growth from bonding to metal surfaces below the waterline. It is proven to increase boat efficiency, protect against corrosion, reduce drag, save fuel and maintenance costs. It features an exceptionally strong chemical and mechanical bond between the metal substrate, the Etching Primer and the Clear Coat – ensuring that the Propspeed coating actually sticks to running gear, and any other underwater metals, and performs season after season.
