Environmental Impact

The convenience and effectiveness of Drive-In Boatwash® facilitates excellent boat maintenance, and boat washing with DIB eliminates the need for divers to clean the hull and to apply toxic anti-fouling paint. DIB enables greater boat performance and speed with less fuel consumption and less CO2, and supports environmental regulation on antifouling. Mechanical brush washing is a recommended environmental strategy for antifouling elimination. Fouling is removed in a matter of minutes, and the debris is collected in a large basin underneath.
This user-friendly hull cleaning system saves both time and money for the boat owner, while generating an income stream for marina owner/operators. The system’s positive impact on the environment has rapidly gained recognition worldwide.
