How much does it cost to clean the bottom of a boat?
BoatEasy is a great resource for comparing rates when choosing a diver for your boat. It's important to realize though that the rates posted are dependent on several factors, the most important of which is the condition of your hull. Boat hulls that have been regularly cleaned are usually between $2 and $3 per foot, whereas hulls that have missed a few cleanings will usually be priced based on the time it takes to clean them. Rates vary by location so be sure to look at the rates divers in your area are charging and not rates charged by divers elsewhere in the country.
Helpful Tips for Hiring a Boat Bottom Cleaning Service
Ask if your diver services other boats in your marina or near you. Conditions can vary by marina so having a diver familiar with your location is best.
Ask for pictures or video upon completion. This is a good way to insure that the service was carried out as stated and assess for yourself the condition of your boat's hull, bottom paint, and marine growth.
Monitor zinc anodes and replace as needed.
Repaint your boat's bottom paint as needed. Your hull cleaning service should keep you up to date on the condition of your boat's bottom paint and will advise when repainting your hull with a fresh coat of antifouling paint is necessary.
Choose regularly scheduled bottom cleanings for your boat. A lot of boaters think they can save money by postponing bottom cleaning and skipping regular services. The reality is that the more marine growth that accumulates on your, the harder it is to clean meaning cleanings will take more time and cost more.
