HullSpeed® Performance Marine Coatings is located in Saratoga Springs, NY. A product of Greenfield Mfg., Inc., HullSpeed® coatings have been making boats go faster for over 10 years.
The chemistry that has been fueling HullSpeed®’s success is a proprietary technology developed by Greenfield Mfg., Inc. (GMI). A waterborne epoxy/silicone co-polymer, HullSpeed® coatings not only improve hull performance but they are also eco-friendly from application to end use. In addition to performance and eco-friendliness, HullSpeed® products help extend hull life and durability.
Protection and durability of a fishing boat, especially a bass fishing boat, is a top concern for any angler. In order to catch all types of fish, you need to find them first. Sometimes finding them means putting your boat through rough water and over grass, logs, sand and more but, now anglers are doing that with more confidence and peace of mind.
Randy Howell, the 2014 Bassmasster Classic Champion, Shaw Grigsby, a veteran of the sport with his own fishing show ‘One More Cast’, Pete Ponds and Chad Pipkens, also elite series anglers as well as RC Cooper and FLW tour champion Skip Johnson all run HullSpeed® SMART ARMOR on their tournament boats. These pro anglers run their boats year round. Protecting their hull as well as improving fuel economy, speed and ease of hull maintenance/cleaning are big features that directly relate to cost savings for them. Everyone is looking to save money and simple solutions like an application of HullSpeed SMART ARMOR is an easy decision for the guys who spend most of their time on the water.
But let’s not forget about the locals. Steve Prettyman, a MD born long time fisherman who now lives in the capital district has been running HullSpeed® on his aluminum fishing boat for over 4 years. Jim Janis, a local tournament angler uses the coating on his fiberglass boat. The US Water-Ski Show Team who perform at Jumping Jacks on the Mohawk River use HullSpeed products. The Scotia Fire/Rescue Marine Unit use HullSpeed® on their rescue boat as well as local marathon canoe/ kayak racers and rowing clubs like Saratoga Rowing Association use HullSpeed® products for races and events.

Distributed around the world, HullSpeed® and GMI continue to help advance different industries with the use of its drag reduction coatings and specialty chemical technologies.
