Hempel antifoulings rated the best in big PBO test!

We are proud to share the results of the Practical Boat Owner magazine antifouling test 2022

Hempel Yacht is proud to announce that our premium biocide-free antifouling – Silic One won BEST ON TEST in an independent magazine product test where its quality was once again recognized!

The UK Practical Boat Owner Magazine has just published their annual antifouling test where the “Best In Test” winner, Hempel's Silic One, was the only product tested to achieve 5 stars out of 5.

Hempel has once again proved to be the leading innovator of high performance coating for yachts with minimized impact on the environment.

These test results, and the fact that it comes from an independent respectable UK magazine, is additional and continual proof that Hempel's Silic One is the product to have on your boat.

Pressure is increasing on the boating community to reduce the use of biocide-based antifoulings to protect the environment and marinas. Without compromising on performance, Hempel's biocide-free Silic One has been recognized by the industry and has a proven track record of outperforming traditional biocidal yacht antifoulings.

Following closely behind this success, our traditional antifouling Tiger Xtra won BEST VALUE position amongst other 7 competitor products.

The test results are published on both Practical Boat Owner and Motor Boat Yachting magazines, while the article snapshots can be seen in our image gallery below.
