KeelCrab, the robot cleans your hull


The formation of algae in the hull’s living work on the one hand reduces the boat’s performance, and on the other hand increases fuel consumption. If you don’t feel like sweating seven shirts this summer cleaning the hull with mask, snorkel and elbow grease, there is a practical, hi-tech solution.

It’s KeelCrab, the robotic cleaner designed by Aeffe, which offers boat owners (and industry professionals) the ability to keep the hull clean and in perfect working order by performing live-work cleaning cycles without the need to wing the boat, pay a diver (a nice savings, especially if you use the boat for racing and need a live-work that is always top-notch) or move it from your berth. KeelCrab features sponge tracks, rubber bristles and counter-rotating scotch-brite brushes that ensure a perfect grill with the hull by removing even the most stubborn vegetation. It is remotely controlled via a display equipped with a large screen.
