anti fouling for boats yachts

When purchasing an Efficient Sonics Smart Yachts anti-fouling system, it is important to select the unit best matched to the size and construction of your boat hull.

For optimum performance, larger hulls will generally require more transducers and drive units than smaller ones.

In addition, hull construction and the material from which the hull is made play a significant role in determining the number of transducers required, due to the ease with which ultrasound signals are transmitted from the inside to the outside of the hull. In general, a fibre-glass or plastic hull will require significantly more transducers than a metal hull since it is a poorer conductor of sound. Also, a double skinned hull or one with a multi-layer construction will require more transducers and careful consideration of transducer placement during fitting.

In all circumstances, please seek advice from us prior to purchasing a product, and Efficient Sonics strongly recommend that the installation of the unit is undertaken by a certified distributor.

All of our products contain the sophisticated and unique Smart Tune Technology to ensure peak performance, and for further peace of mind, a Portable Ultrasonic Meter is available to check that your Smart Yacht is installed correctly and operating at its best.
