Deep Trekker is bringing its fleet of underwater robots to the 2017 International WorkBoat Show - providing simple and affordable hull inspections.

Ninety percent of the world’s trade is said to travel by ship before reaching its final destination, so it’s no surprise that the demand for freight shipping has risen exponentially in recent years.
