How it Works
Sonihull has been manufacturing and developing its market-leading ultrasonic anti-fouling technology since 2006.
Traditional anti-fouling systems like surface paints, rely on the release of poisonous chemicals and microplastics into the ocean. Sonihull ECO relies on the physics of ultrasound to keep fouling off your boat.
Zero Poisonous Environmental Legacy
Unlike anti-fouling paints, Sonihull ECO provides effective bio-fouling control without biocides or microplastics. It is low cost, low maintenance and has zero poisonous environmental legacy.
Protects Inside and Outside
From hulls, propellers and sterndrives on the outside to pipework, cooling systems and tanks on the inside, Sonihull ECO has got you covered. No need for dry-stacks, boat-lifts or drive-on floating docks.
Complete Range of Solutions
From small boats to complex superyachts. From hulls to awkward pipework - Sonihull ECO has systems and adaptors to protect any surface from unwanted bio-fouling.
Increasing and Decreasing Pressure
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.
The Benefits of Sonihull ECO
The resulting microscopic agitation has a cleansing effect which damages surface algae and makes the surface a less inviting habitat for larger, more complex organisms to colonise.
The microscopic movement of water does not damage the protected surface and has been proven to prevent barnacle and mussel larvae from embedding on the surface.

Why Go ECO?
Sonihull ECO - The future of anti-fouling, now
Effective bio-fouling control without any poisonous biocides or microplastic shedding. Works regardless of water temperature or geographical location.
No etching, no surface prep, no annual cleaning, masking or re-painting. Lower your fuel bills, and keep fouling off your boat without the need for dry-stacking, dockside boat-lift or a drive-on floating dock.
No regular hoisting, no through-hull fittings, no painting. Sonihull ECO systems can be fitted whilst the vessel is in the water.
Increased Leisure Time
No cleaning hard-to-reach areas, extended maintenance intervals, less downtime and reduced running costs.
Clean propellers will prevent additional vibration and reduce unnecessary drivetrain wear.
Keeping hard fouling off your hull and propellers will minimise hydrodynamic drag, keeping your fuel consumption down and your boat speed up.
Satisfied Sonihull Clients
"Sonihull system has outperformed my best expectations"
During the last 8 months, Sonihull system has outperformed my best expectations, on weekly inspections we have seen no signs of growth nor have we had to clean the strainers only for light debris, we have inspected the manifold and coolers with an endoscope and again no signs of growth which in turn has benefited all auxiliary sea water systems…
"..I have found the results to be more than acceptable"
I have used Sonihull on my last two Southerly yachts and I have found the results to be more than acceptable. I use Sonihull in combination with Cucoat and applied together there is very little growth to remove. After having had my antifoul paint removed on a section of my hull, by another yacht, I found that bare gelcoat did…
"The yacht’s performance is noticeably and consistently improved"
Before Sonihull was installed the bottom would have to be physically cleaned by divers twice in a season. And the yacht’s performance is noticeably and consistently improved due to having a clean hull.
