Anti-fouling and Anodes

One of the most important maintenance considerations for any boat or yacht is the Anti-fouling and the checking and replacement of the anodes.

If the antifoul is not renewed annually then marine algae can build up can slow your boat down, making it less fuel efficient and can mean more expense is required in the long term. All forms of anti-fouling can be undertaken by our professional boatyard team and free quotations are available on request.

The anodes on a boat are integral to the protection of the hull and must be inspected annually to ensure that they are in good condition. We can replace all sizes and types of anodes and this check is normally done while the boat is out of the water to be antifouled.

All services are competitively priced and there’s further discounts for all Marina Members.

Salterns Marina provide a vast range of exceptional marine valeting services. Our dedicated valet team can provide regular scheduled valets or bespoke one-off services to ensure your boat is gleaming ready for the season ahead. Every boat on the water is exposed to the elements day in and day out. Sun, salt water, and wind all take their toll on the exterior of your vessel. Even though these are durable surfaces, they must be properly cared for and maintained regularly. This is where boat valeting comes in.

Valeting services include: complete exterior and cockpit deep clean including fridges, hand polish to protect gelcoat from the elements, stainless steel polish, dehumidifier fitted to any cabin boats, bar heaters in engine bays and cabins and upgrades including teak deck, gelcoat repairs and covers, plus many more.

All services are competitively priced and very convenient for Berth Holders who also receive member discounts.

“I used Salterns Marina Boatyard to lift my boat in and out this year plus it had a power wash. Booking in the lift was super easy and the guys in the office were nice and helpful, when it was time for the lift out the team also did a top job of getting rid of any barnacles and other marine growth, I’ll definitely be back next year 10/10 ”

C.Brooks, Harbour Boatyard customer.
