Propspeed chosen as coating of choice by Riviera Australia –


Propspeed, a leading innovator in underwater anti-fouling coatings, today announced that it has received approval from Riviera Australia.

The luxury yacht maker applies Propspeed as a factory standard for all new models and recommends the use of Propspeed for existing owners as protection against fouling and corrosion of undercarriages and underwater metals.

“Riviera uses Propspeed on all new motor yachts built by the company over the past five years. Additionally, Riviera’s after-sales service and service, based in the Gold Coast manufacturing facility, has been using Propspeed for 10 years, ”said Michael Swain, Riviera After-Sales and Service Manager.

“We think Propspeed is a superior fault rejection system. When applied correctly we see very little growth on boats that have been in the water for 12 months and up to 18 months. There is no better anti-fouling product to apply to the propellers, shafts or nacelles of a Riviera.

“We are grateful to Riviera Australia for their support,” said Chris Baird, CEO of Propspeed. “The Riviera brand is renowned for selecting the highest quality parts and components to complement their world class construction. We know that current and future owners will be more than happy with the results of our award-winning product line.

With more than 40 years of evolution, Riviera has created an exceptional and diverse collection of 24 models from 39 to 78 feet in length. As Australia’s premier luxury motor yacht builder, the company has established an international customer base and has more than 5,700 owners worldwide.

Propspeed’s ultra-smooth 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 save maintenance costs.

It exhibits an exceptionally strong chemical and mechanical bond between the metal substrate, the etching primer and the clear coating – ensuring that the Propspeed coating truly adheres to undercarriages and other underwater metal, and performs season after season.

Propspeed products include Propspeed for undercarriages and all underwater metals, Foulfree for transducers and Lightspeed for underwater lighting.
