BIGWASH comes in 4 sizes and cleans most motor and sailboats up to 16 meters (53 feet). It consists of a U shaped aluminum frame. The frame requires a dock space of 7.2 to maximum 8.2 meters. BIGWASH is operated by remote control from the dock.
BIGWASH has 8-10 rotating brushes made from non-abrasive plastic. A collection basin for cleaning residue is located under the machine.
The boat is driven in between the beams after the basin gate has been lowered. The boat is secured and the gate is closed. The cleaning is activated with a handheld remote control unit. The rotating brushes automatically align with the hull. The brushes move along the boat all the way to the stern and back, clearing the boat of marine fouling.
For a 10-meter boat the whole process takes less than 15 minutes.
