Ultrasonic Antifouling Systems

Sonihull ECO is the latest range of ultrasonic anti-fouling systems from green technology pioneer Sonihull. Since 2006, Sonihull has been developing industry-leading ultrasound technology that safely prevents unwanted barnacles and mollusks from colonizing hard surfaces. Pragati Yacht is the official distributor of Sonihull in Florida.

Sonihull has over 40,000 installations worldwide with several here in South Florida.

Traditional anti-fouling systems like surface paints, rely on the release of poisonous chemicals and microplastics into the ocean. SONIHULL relies on the physics of ultrasound to keep fouling off your boat. You can protect your hull, or you can choose to protect keels, rudders, IPS drives, sterndrives, waterjets, thrusters, keel coolers, raw water pipework & cooling-water inlets. From small boats to complex superyachts.

SONIHULL has got you covered. No need for dry-stacks, boatlifts or drive-on floating docks. The system can be installed while your boat is in water.

Sonihull will work on STEEL, ALUMINUM, STAINLESS STEEL, TITANIUM, FIBERGLASS AND RIGID PLASTICS NOT IN WOOD HULLS.

About the system:

How it Works

Once the transducers are installed, they will start emitting ultrasonic waves creating micro-cavitation that will resonate throughout the outer layer of your hull preventing barnacles to get attached to the hull. These ultrasonic waves are not audible to humans or fish.

By Increasing and Decreasing Pressure Sonihull prevents barnacles to get attached to the hull.

The Sonihull ECO ultrasound transducers are bonded to the dry side of the surface being protected. The transducers produce a microscopic pattern of increasing and decreasing pressure in the layer of water that’s touching the protected surface.

Microscopic bubbles are created as the pressure decreases and imploded as the pressure increases
