Why is this a good idea?

Demand curve of fairing cleaning increasing for at least 3 reasons:

Increasingly stringent regulations
Antifouling paints with fewer biocides will soon become "biocide free"(current standard under certain further restriction: BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012). This is especially a problem for leisure boats that are stationed for long periods.
Climate change
Significant increase in sea temperatures generating an average increase in proliferation
Migration of alien species
We are very sensitive to this issue, for this reason we have developed a filter bag with variable micrometry that allows us to clean the hull by picking up the proliferation of native species, thus preventing their migration.

Pricing policy and catchment area analysis procedure

Suggested price: we suggest a price for service delivery (also valid assumption of rental of equipment to the customer) resulting from our direct experience of constant comparison with industry professionals already affiliated-point; as a non-exhaustive example, the following table brings a comparison of cleaning or inspection service prices by boat length range in the average context of some of our affiliated Italian and foreign point clients:

In the very first instance, the target boat range is sail and motor boats from 10 to 24 meters in length.

  • Availability and price of hauling and or underwater cleaning service.
  • Average annual expenditure of a shipowner on hull maintenance in your target area
  • Problem: Fast or slow growth of barnacles and algae on the hull caused by the proliferation of vegetation and identification of typical vegetation for selection of the most suitable brush.
  • Average annual water port visibility (presence of tributary basins with poor circulation-periods of storms or rough seas-periods of low tide)
  • ARMATORS: propose annual subscription service (4-6 cleanings per year with 20% customer benefit)
  • NETWORK: collaborations with shipyards and marinas with the aim of offering not only cleaning service, but also inspection and maintenance.
  • CHARTER COMPANIES: Collaboration with the aim of offering maintenance service and videographic check-up of fairings upon return from rentals.

Based on the analysis of the average catchment area, a machine amortization schedule (illustrative not exhaustive) calculated on a medium-small catchment area in which 30 customers per year, with boats of mixed lengths between 10 and 18 meters, decide to join the contract offer (assuming 4 cleaning operations per year per customer) at the cleaning and inspection services with the purpose of maintaining hull performance with immediate benefit in the fuel consumption and hull supervision and inspection service.

As the model shows, break even is achievable in a short time once a minimum number of hours and effort, training and dissemination are organized and dedicated to the initiative.
