Why Keep Your Boat In A Seapen

Why Keep Your Boat In A Seapen

There are many reasons why people keep their boats in a SeaPen apart from the obvious – to keep the barnacles and growth off the hull.


Here is what Kay from Mermaid Waters has to say about the impact of SeaPen in her boating life:


“I would like to share my experiences of having a SeaPen with all my fellow lady boaties. We have a Riviera M370 and had a SeaPen installed nearly three years ago now. Besides the obvious technical benefits of the SeaPen, such as safety, stability of the boat, less anti-fouling and maintenance, there are many more important reasons to have it.


“Prior to having the SeaPen, taking the boat out for the day or a week was a challenge due to the expectations my husband had of me. Instead of having a relaxing day, it started with frustrations over doing the ropes and fenders, both of which I was not that good at, apparently. Then after a lovely day out on the boat, we came home to more ropes and fenders, and more frustrations.


“The Sea Pen has been our savior, from a boating relationship perspective. The sheer ease of leaving the pontoon and returning to the pontoon in a very safe manner relieved us from stress. I am no longer required to manage ropes and fenders. I can now step onto the boat and prepare some refreshments, which make for a wonderful and relaxed start to our boating experience. On our return home, the same applies, as I no longer need to hang off the side of the boat waiting to jump off to secure the boat with fenders and ropes.


“Our SeaPen has a walkway around the boat, which makes it so easy to wash the entire boat and to conduct general maintenance. There is no need to turn the boat around to wash both sides.


“I love the Riv, but I love the SeaPen more.”


Another happy customer is Craig from Benowa. Here is his story:


“The SeaPen is easy to use, low maintenance and suits shallow water conditions. I have owned two SeaPens, the most recent being the 7990 XL gated unit to suit my Cobalt. The service from the DOCKPRO team was excellent during the purchase, delivery, and installation. I would have no hesitation in referring family and friends to use a SeaPen.”


The locally made SeaPen has undergone many design improvements since its launch in 2004. Many of these improvements have been designed to make it easy to enjoy your boating experience. The unique and patented Rope Mesh Technology allows the hull to be ventilated, which is important. The rope mesh also protects the skin from all sharp items and from rubbing caused by props, trim tabs, and transducers.


The current model, SeaPen XL, is the latest technology available in water level dry docking systems.
