Boat Bottom Cleaning
Boat Bottom Cleaning
Superior boat bottom cleaning and maintenance is vital for the safety, comfort, pleasure and longevity of your vessel. Marine growth on a boat bottom increases fuel consumption and places an added burden on a boat’s engine whether it’s in fresh or saltwater. When harbor bottom damage is severe, expensive repairs could become necessary.
Boat owners are well aware of the consequences of a fouled boat hull. Instead of a smooth, clean hull that runs smoothly through the water, marine growth causes drag, lowers speed, and increases fuel consumption. It can still form fouling, even after a fresh paint and treatment of anti-fouling paints. It is essential to prevent such a thing from happening and ensure trouble-free vessel operation by providing a boat bottom cleaning service.
Based on our experience and expertise over many years servicing boats in Tampa Bay, we have found that every four weeks is the best time to clean a hull. Because we can schedule geographically, and reduce travel time, our monthly rates are more cost-effective than our per-time rates. Your boat will run better, move more easily, look cleaner, and more importantly will cost less fuel.
Our team will inspect your entire boat’s underwater area for any problems. We inspect the condition of your zincs and replace them if necessary. We provide the assurance boat owners need to enjoy their boat without worry.
Beach to Bay Divers and Pools’ boat bottom cleaning extends the lifespan of bottom paint and increases the time between repainting.

Is It Necessary?
It is important to clean the running gear as it can collect barnacles from the bottom paint adhering to the paint and metal reacting to paint. Clearance of through hull fittings is necessary to prevent overheating engines and prevent intakes and outlets from becoming clogged with barnacles. Because the waterline collects grass and other algae from sunlight exposure, it is cleaned. Because it gets less sunlight, the rest of the hull doesn’t usually collect as much algae. If the boat moves at 12 knots or greater, the small amount of algae it does collect will usually be removed by the boat. We will inspect the vessel each time and, if necessary, we will also clean the hull.
Benefits of Using Our Services

Regularly Scheduled Cleanings
Regularly scheduled underwater hull cleaning in Florida’s Southwest tropical waterways is necessary to keep your vessel’s surface clean.
It is important that professional divers do the job. Larger boats and yachts are more difficult to clean underwater due to murky water and sharp debris attached to the vessel’s hull. Low visibility can make it difficult for non-professionals. An experienced diver who specializes in hull cleaning will be able to use brushes, scraping tools, and other tools to complete the job correctly the first time.
Any hull cleaning can be done by our professional divers. Our professional divers are highly trained and experienced in cleaning yachts and boats at docks or marinas. Beach to Bay Divers will ensure that you enjoy all the benefits associated with a clean hull, such as improved fuel efficiency, fewer vibrations and a smoother ride. Call us today to schedule a hull inspection or get set up for monthly underwater hull cleanings.
