New Home For A Whitehaven Yacht

New Home For A Whitehaven Yacht

The Gold Coast is home base to a remarkable local company that manufactures a unique dry-docking system for recreational and commercial vessels. The SeaPen is for boaties wanting to keep their boat moored in the water without the cost of antifouling the hull and the hassle of trying to maintain a boat that lives in water.

 

Experienced boat owners Ray and Denis, have recently launched their new motor yacht Finito, a stunning Whitehaven 750. Finito is a beautifully appointed 20m luxury cruising vessel based at the family’s waterfront home in Cullen Bay, Darwin.

 

Sandra Barber at SeaPen says, “An experienced boat owner can appreciate the benefits of mooring a vessel of this magnitude in a SeaPen. It’s like investing in a new garage to house your pride a joy. Ray and Denis have previously owned another large vessel that was also moored in a SeaPen. So ordering a new SeaPen for the Whitehaven 750 was a forgone conclusion. Having a clean hull and running gear with no barnacles or other marine growth not only saved the owners money on maintenance costs, but it also ensures Finito will always perform at her best.”

 

Sandra has overseen the custom building of hundreds of SeaPen units that are installed throughout Australia and internationally, so she knows firsthand the benefits of the product. “Boats are moored in harsh marine environments. Most owners spend a lot of money looking after the top sides of the boat, but they can now have the boat’s hull just as clean when using a SeaPen. Finito is an outstanding example of a shrewd boating decision.”

 

Historically, using antifouling has been the paradigm for reducing marine growth when mooring in the water. Antifouling, a chemical-based paint, has proven costly and time-consuming to apply and requires regular, sometimes twice yearly, removal and re-application. For years, antifouling has been seen as a necessary evil, but not any more, thanks to SeaPen.

 

Always run off her feet at the company’s manufacturing plant at the Coomera Marine Precinct, Sandra welcomes astute buyers looking to protect their boats and save on maintenance costs. There are various models of SeaPen available for boats from 6m to 30m.  SeaPen is sold exclusively by DOCKPRO Pty. Ltd. and will be displayed on the marina in F14 at the upcoming Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.  For further information go to Dockpro.com.au, or call 5580 4465.
