Modern finishes are much more than just paint, instead they are systems made up of a combination of coatings each applied in the correct sequence under carefully controlled conditions to produce a high performance finish. If applied correctly, they provide chemically cured finishes resistant to abrasion, chalking, corrosion and chemical attack, protecting your valuable investment against the harsh marine environment.

For more than a decade, Boat Yard Services has prided itself on being a high class yacht painter, producing fantastic finishes with a mirror like gloss on vessels which are sailed around the world. Boat Yard Services, an approved Awlgrip application centre, has the highly qualified staff to care for your boat and produce a shiny new finish matching virtually any colour to add value to an older vessel and give new life to a tired looking boat making it look almost as if it’s just been delivered from the factory again.

The paints used are based on polyurethane or epoxy plastics which cure by using a combination of chemical and physical processes giving a strong, durable surface with high protection against both the sea and the sun with improved gloss retention. New, highly technical formulas are used which give improved pot life and also mean the finish achieved with brush applications is comparable to that of spraying. Improvements have also been made to gloss finishes with additives ensuring the ‘wet look’ shine is kept for longer. All paintwork takes place in our purpose built spray facility which has extraction equipment controlling the atmosphere as the paint systems used are sensitive to variations in the ambient conditions during application.

The first stage of any paint work is to thoroughly prepare the surface, a procedure which takes many hours for each square metre and which is one of the most important stages in the repainting process. On most boats, Boat Yard Services will use a two component system. But on older, wooden boats, conventional single components will still be used as these are more forgiving towards flexibility and surface imperfections. Boat Yard Services staff are experienced in achieving the best results possible using these complex materials. By only using the best quality paints from the world’s leading manufacturers we ensure we stay at the forefront of technical development.

Keel Painting and Preparation Rust can be removed from keels before they are painted with epoxy and sealed. Keels can also be profiled ready for racing.

Reliable and Concientious!

Jason Smith and Boatyard Services have been taking care of the maintenance and service of my boat "Too Bad Too Sad" for the past 5 years. Having know Jason in the past, I knew he and his team would be reliable and conscientious and they have proven to be all of that. I am quite satisfied with their services and attention they have provided me over the years. As a result, "Too Bad Too Sad" runs and looks as good as the day she was delivered!

We have been using the services of Captain Jason Smith and Boatyard Services for the last eight years. They have provided both cosmetic and mechanical upkeep and maintenance on a Hinckley Talaria as well as a smaller Boston Whaler. These services, their attention to detail and their professionalism have all been of the highest standards. Additionally, we have used their captain services many times on evening cruises and trips to the Bahamas. Their expertise in captaining and providing service to us and our guests has also been exemplary. I'm not sure what we would do if it weren't for Jason!

I have been a customer of Boat Yard Services for many years. I have been delighted with their attention to detail and care of my vessels. Captain Jason and his crew have been with me through my first 38’ Little Harbor and for two Hinckley upgrades. I appreciate the Captain services they provide to assist me with numerous trips to the Bahamas, the Florida Keys and other favorite vacation spots. The team at Boat Yard Services love what they do and it shows in their work..
