Painting, Fairing & Finishing
Our paint shop can serve for yachts and motor boats of all sizes. Working with the world’s best marine paint brands, our teams of fully qualified application specialists offer a high level of expertise and service on all types of boats.
Antifouling; Working with market leading marine paint brands we offer a variety of antifoul options for your yacht and will work with you to find the best solution to suit your needs. Whether you want long term protection for a cruising motorboat or a smooth racing finish for your performance race yacht, we’ll advise on the best products to use. Our team have many years of experience applying antifoul so you can rest assured we’ll deliver a great finish.
Spray Painting and Respray, Varnishing; Whether you have aluminium, carbon fibre or timber spars we can prepare and protect them with our carefully selected marine primers, paints and varnishes. From deck brightwork to the varnishing of a superstructure, our expert painting team will make sure your boat not only looks beautiful but is well protected from the elements too. We can also remove old varnish and restore old wood before application of the chosen varnish and can work on all types of timber vessels.
Topsides Painting and Respray; Over time the topsides of boats can fade and become dull. If your yacht is in need of a respray, we have plenty of experience painting the topsides of boats of all shapes and sizes. Our topsides painting service involves sanding down from the toe rail to the waterline, spot filling any minor imperfections, applying an epoxy primer, sanding back again to ensure a smooth finish and finally applying a top gloss coating.
Composites works in new building and repair is highly complex and requires expert skills and knowledge to ensure it is carried out correctly. From carefully calculating exactly how much fibre material and resin is required make sure the yacht is as light as possible without losing any of the structural strength when under load, to carefully feathering in repairs, to creating a smooth neat finish around a mould, composite construction and repair is both a science and a fine art.
Osmosis Treatment and Repairs
Osmosis is usually identified when the surface of a hull starts to blister. Our osmosis repair treatment is extensive and involves the following stages of work:
· Blasting and peeling of the hull
· Multiple sessions of steam cleaning to remove all salts and exposed laminates
· Movement of the boat into a contained sheltered area
· Infra-red lamps and hot air used to dry out the hull
· Regularly monitored moisture readings taken from the boat
· Anti Osmosis treatment applied (guaranteed for five years)
· Epoxy fill the underside of the vessel as required
· A further four coats of epoxy will then be applied to the hull, preparing the boat for the application of the last two coats of antifoul.
