Don’t continue to let slipping your boat and antifouling cost you $3000/ $4000/ $5000+ (AUD) each 12/ 24 months when a onetime capital investment on Barnaclerid, averaging $2000 (AUD),to be  protected from barnacles/ hard shell growth for many seasons.


With a barnaclerid investment your $$ return is less than 12 months.


Barnaclerid also saves you money on fuel and engine maintenance as a boat hull free of barnacles means it is easier for your boat to maintain normal cruise speed – putting less stress on your engine while using less fuel.

A protective field is established around your hull and running gear which combats barnacle growth by creating an environment barnacles do not like, therefore barnacles will not attach to your hull or running gear.

Barnaclerid only requires one person less than two minutes to lift and stow the electrodes, ready to sail or cruise away. On return simply spend another two minutes returning the electrodes to the water to protect you from barnacles again. The controller recognises when the electrodes are in or out of the water and automatically switches off and back on again, saving any input from you.

All this whilst using very little battery power or you can run from shore mains power

It’s that simple,Now your boat is protected from barnacles/ hard shell growth again and will be ready whenever you return to cruise away without hassles.

Why Barnaclerid?


Copper has been used by mariners for centuries to prevent barnacles from attaching to their boats. Our sophisticated proven system  enhances the effects of copper's protective properties,by submerging between 2-4 electrodes (or more dependent of vessels size and configuration) just below the water line of your boat creating an invisible, safe, green friendly copper Ion field around the hull and running gear. Our sophisticated electronic computer controller uses low power consumption e.g. 12 volt (500 milliamps to maximum 1.2 Amp hours, depending on climate setting)

12 volt / 24 volt,and all mains shore power/inverter voltages available,240 volt,110 volt etc.

Variable controls via touch buttons that are configurable to suit any climate.
