Exceptional antifouling protection in high fouling conditions

Spartan’s 45% copper content and self-polishing nature combine to shed slime and shield your boat’s bottom from hard and soft growth like zebra mussels, algae, and hydroids all season long. The more coats you apply, the longer Spartan repels even the most aggressive foulants.

Haul and relaunch without repainting

If your boat’s been on the hard more than two weeks after painting it with Spartan, or if you apply Spartan then use your boat for a season and haul out at the end, there’s no need to repaint when you’re ready to relaunch. Simply scuffing lightly with a maroon 3M Scotch-Brite™ Pad or 80-grit sandpaper reactivates this paint’s antifouling properties.

Burnishing adds smoothness and speed with no loss of protection

Spartan is easy to apply with a roller or brush, flows evenly, and cures quickly to a streamlined, abrasion-resistant finish made even smoother by burnishing. And Spartan won’t wear off faster just because your boat moves faster through the water. Its advanced co-polymer ablative formula releases biocides at the same constant, controlled rate no matter how fast or slow you go.
