The appearance and hull integrity of luxury yachts, whether built from steel or aluminium, can be seriously compromised by corrosion.
Traditional methods of protection involve the use of sacrificial anodes which add extra weight and drag as well as spoiling the smooth lines of the craft. Sacrificial anodes also need to be replaced at regular intervals to remain effective.
Cathelco Minitek and Alutek systems eliminate these problems using the most advanced impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) technology. They have also developed systems which protect water jet tunnels on high speed leisure craft.
The systems are specified by some of the world’s leading yacht designers and builders, and can be fitted to craft of 15 metres upwards.
