SeaPen is a unique dry-docking solution that keeps your boat free from barnacles and other marine growth without lifting it out of the water.
DOCKPRO has made and installed more than 4,000 SeaPens around the world over the past two decades. SeaPen is designed to suit almost all types of recreational & commercial vessels. See the SeaPens we have recently installed below.
The combination of quality marine-grade materials and breakthrough technology to maximise airflow, allows water to be easily pumped away from your boat, leaving your hull dry in no time.
You can walk on the frame, skin and rope mesh. The SeaPen is built sturdy and strong. The high-density polyethylene frame material allows for 360-degree walkable access.
An aluminium walkway is also available as an accessory.
SeaPen’s patented rope mesh system has been meticulously designed to maximise air space around your boat, providing ventilation and helping to keep the hull and running gear clean.
The only dry-docking system in the world to feature a drainage and ventilation system.
Because SeaPen works at water level it doesn’t detract from the look of your boat, nor will it ruin your view across the water.
SeaPen is there, tirelessly working to keep your boat in top order.
The SeaPen is designed to be as low-maintenance as possible.
SeaPen’s special polymer skin is one of the only materials in existence that resists barnacle growth when kept in sea water. There’s usually no need to remove your SeaPen for cleaning.
*Min water depth needed plus draft of boat (approx.)
Yes, your boat is out of the water when dry-docked in a SeaPen.
SeaPen features a unique waterproof skin that isolates your boat in its own pool of water. This water is then drained out of the SeaPen. Our patented Rope Mesh technology then creates an air space all the way around the hull and running gear of your boat creating ventilation for your hull.
Keeping your motor performing in top condition is vital and in order to do this, it’s best to flush your motor after each use. This process is easy in a SeaPen; you can either attach flushing muffs or better still, you can part-fill the SeaPen with fresh water until it’s above the motor intakes and then simply idle the motor in neutral.
The latest model Platinum SeaPen was released in May 2022 and features our new black rope mesh. The black rope mat gives a very clean look to your SeaPen, however there are no quality differences between the black or green rope mat.
Antifouling is a product intended to inhibit marine growth and is formulated with toxic copper, organotin compounds, or other biocides. Antifouling doesn’t stop marine growth from occurring in the long-term and decreases your boat's performance when applied.
Furthermore, it has to be removed and re-applied on a regular basis. All this leads to a significant outlay of time and money with few benefits that improve your boating lifestyle
By dry-docking your boat at water level in a SeaPen, you keep you boat free from marine growth. We suggest that as fibreglass is porous a barrier coat be applied to waterproof the hull. This will give you peace of mind when you are out on the water.
SeaPen’s advanced dry-docking technology means every time you take your boat out, it will perform like new with a growth-free hull for maximum efficiency. Not antifouling your boat will also help maintain the boat’s market resale value and protect our precious marine environment from harmful toxins.
Never Antifoul Again. Ever.
Yes, you certainly can!
Whilst you should always take care walking on a water-bound object, the SeaPen has been designed to support your weight. You can walk on the frame, skin and rope mat providing you take care. The optional aluminium tread step walkways give you a flat surface to walkway around the boat making it even easier and safer to put covers on or clean the offside of your boat.
SeaPen’s patented rope mat is crucial to the dry-docking process and serves 3 primary functions.
1. It creates an air gap between the hull of the boat and the skin of the SeaPen – the crucial ventilation stage in the dry-docking process.
2. It protects the SeaPen skin from the sharp points of the boat; propellers, trim-tabs etc.
3. It gives the SeaPen structural strength, with a breaking strain of 76,000 kg per square metre.
After many years of research and development, production commenced in 2004. Since then, over 4,000 SeaPens have been installed across Australia and around the world for many different types of boats.
There is very little maintenance involved with the SeaPen. The key points are:
Rinse fresh water through the SeaPen. Every time you rinse down your boat, it will rinse fresh water through the SeaPen.
On the SeaPen built before 2020, there is a sacrificial anode attached to the SeaPen bilge system that needs checking and periodically replacing.
We recommend an annual preventive service to ensure your SeaPen is operating at it's best.
Contact our service department to arrange your next service.
The SeaPen is Australian made and manufactured on the Gold Coast, Australia. It is then exported worldwide.
