Drive-in Boatwash systems are hull cleaning machines that float in the water and require little maintenance. They are suitable for both motor and sail boats from 2 – 16 meters (53 ft). Choose from three available sizes.
The floating frame is tied to the dock on either the long side or the short side to take up less space. Keel length for sailboats: max. 1.6 meters. Extra sizes on request. Contact us for more information.
Below the installation is a collection basin, which collects algae, shells and particles. In addition, a filter system is installed, which filters microplastics and particles. There is a fish stop system to protect the fish. The brushes rotate at 20 rpm and are very quiet (about 60 dB).
Cleaning is activated with a hand-held remote control and the rotating brushes automatically adjust to the hull.
The brushes move along the boat to the stern and back, removing fouling. The brushes are designed to adjust to bulb keels up to 45 cm wide.
The brushes are made of strong, non-abrasive polymer. There is a large basin under the machine where debris is collected for safe disposal. The basin door opens and closes between wash cycles.
The BIGWASH machines are made of a U-shaped frame made of naval grade aluminum. Along the aluminium frame runs a washing system composed of 8 to 10 rotating brushes.
All BIGWASH machines are hydraulically operated. They are connected to a 400 V three-phase current and consume about 1 kWh per 15 minutes of washing.
The BIGWASH is operated by a manual remote control. At the press of a button you can open and close the door and move the broom unit around.
