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.
