Coppercoat has announced that West Coast Marine Yacht Services, based in Mumbai, has been appointed as the antifoul company’s distributor in India.

An initial three-year agreement was ratified following a successful meeting between Coppercoat director Ewan Clark and West Coast Marine director Jitendra Rami at Seawork 2019 in Southampton.

Offering a wide range of services, West Coast Marine is said to have accrued an extensive knowledge of requirements in all sectors of the Indian maritime market, and can therefore envision the clear benefits of bringing the efficiency of Coppercoat antifoul to its clientele. As a non-ablative combination of copper powder and resin, Coppercoat is both hard-wearing and kind to the environment. It will adhere firmly to surfaces including GRP, steel, iron, aluminium and concrete, and its coating can protect hulls for up to 10 years or beyond.

“It’s a genuine pleasure to have struck up this new arrangement with West Coast Marine,” said Clark. “The company has built up a deservedly positive reputation for comprehensive and dependable service in India, and we’re looking forward to enjoying a fruitful business relationship with them over the coming years.”

“Coppercoat’s highly durable and environmentally-principled properties are particularly attractive to us and our customer base,” said Rami. “Our clients naturally want the very best coat-and-forget antifouling money can buy, and we’re only too happy to now be in a position where we will be able to offer them exactly that.”

Stocks of Coppercoat will be available in India later this autumn.

Aquarius Marine Coatings has manufactured the antifouls Coppercoat, Coppercoat-Superyacht and Coppercoat Commercial since 1991.
