barnacleRID Prevents Barnacles

Electronic copper-ion System

Preventing barnacles from growing on your boat is really so easy with the barnacleRID system. Our sophisticated electronic controller consumes very little power, and it is compatible with all common boat power systems (including 110/240V, 50/60Hz mains systems).

barnacleRID Is CE Certified Compliant For European Use

barnacleRID Is Sold In Over 28 Countries

barnacleRID featured in the AFLOAT magazine with a feature article about barnacleRID in 2019, read article here, and in the Nautic Expo magazine. barnacleRID creates a copper ion electronic field around the boat’s hull.
Unlike ultrasonic systems, no hull installation is required. Instead, it consists of a wiring harness holding several electrodes that hangs from the boat when moored. Contact: or +61 410 541 920 or 1300 048 526..

barnacleRID is NOT Ultrasonic!

barnacleRID cannot by design cause electrolysis/galvanic corrosion.

Ultrasonic systems only work on a limited type of hulls and requires risky hull modifications for the installation. ULTRASONIC IS NOT environmentally friendly. It damages marine life on the cellular level.

barnacleRID works on all hull materials, types, without hull modifications and it is environmentally friendly.

How Do I Operate It?

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.
With a fixed Marina System you only drive in and out. No lifting or lowering of the electrodes is required.

Very impressed with barnaclerids protection in these very warm waters in the top end Darwin as are my two neighbours who also use Barnacle Rid either side of my catamaran. It is working so well I decided to have a pro photographer take this photo of all three of our boats for you. thanks so much regards Andrew


Barniclerid is a great product. We are very happy with the results using them now for about 6 years. We have only been pulled out twice during this time for anti fouling and both times we (as were the people doing the clean) were amazed at how free of barnacles there were. We are a high speed catamaran and clean hulls are essential for fuel economy. We can’t recommend this product enough. Thanks Shane, regards Graeme and Sue …Tin Can Bay Marina.

Here are the photos of my boat being pulled out at Royal Perth after 14 months in the water. The boat is clean apart from the residue on the ground of slime and a little weed which would have filled 1-2 20 litre Buckets. I am extremely pleased with this outcome.

This tradewinds 42 (see two photos below) straight out of the water no blast after over 19 months since last antifoul, no barnacles on the hull whatsoever, a few on the bottom bow and prop, considering this boat hardly ever moves and is on its wharf for months at a time its a great result

I brought Barnacle Rid several years ago after I just paid over $2000 to have my Farrier F9 a Trimaran antifouled. I wasn’t sure if it would work. It was vandalised once with someone cutting one of the leads.

I left in the water for over 4 years without barnacle problems. It was breeze to go out sailing  without the drag of barnacles. The only problem was having to quickly scrape off seaweed on the water line the odd occasion.
