- Commercial & Superyacht
Auckland, New Zealand – Propspeed, leading innovator of underwater foul-release coatings, announced today an important milestone – 20 years of continuous use by Freedom Fast Cats. Based in Rosslyn Bay Harbour, Queensland, Australia, Freedom Fast Cats offers ferry transfers and a wide range of cruises to the Keppel Bay Islands and Great Barrier Reef. Owned and operated by the Allen family, Freedom Fast Cats’ fleet currently consists of five ferries and two glass-bottom boats.
“We aim to offer our customers a quality product that delivers exceptional performance year after year,” said Chris Baird, CEO, Propspeed. “We are very proud of the dedicated following we have built through superior product development and customer service and in the case of Freedom Fast Cats, this dedication has spanned more than 20 years. We look forward to continuing to offer the same quality products and excellent support for at least 20 more.”
With over 21 years of experience protecting underwater assets globally, Propspeed has built a passionate team to offer superior in-field technical support. Propspeed’s ultra-slick topcoat is specially formulated to prevent marine growth from bonding to metal surfaces below the waterline. Offering all-in-one protection, Propspeed is the ideal defense against marine growth and corrosion for all underwater metal assets including propellers, shafts and struts. It is proven to support vessel readiness, increase efficiency, prevent corrosion, save fuel and reduce maintenance costs. The solution features an exceptionally strong chemical and mechanical bond between the metal substrate, the Etching Primer and the Clear Coat – ensuring the Propspeed coating actually sticks to running gear, and that the vessel can run at its peak. In addition, because growth releases when the vessel reaches cruising speeds, the product line prevents invasive species from being transferred to other regions.
Propspeed understands the importance of the commercial market and the savings that can be had using its product line on commercial vessels. They recently launched the Propspeed Commercial Kit, created specifically for the commercial marine trade profession. This kit includes everything need to coat a surface of 153 square feet or 14.2 square meters, ensuring a vessel’s operational readiness and sustained performance, while reducing maintenance and fuel cost.
