About This Project
MY Aviva, 68m Largest hull to be wrapped, using colour matched film by Färben.
The captain researched various methods of finishing and discovered that by using foils and films the project timescale would be significantly reduced.
The decision was made to opt in favour for foils and films following a visit to the Monaco show where the client was able to see up close the quality and finish on a couple of similar large projects completed earlier last year by Wild Group.
A team of WG skilled installers were flown out to Miami where the project completed within four weeks from start to finish.
The advantages of a simpler application means there is less labour time and cost as well as less time in the yard. The specific marine foils used have been colour matched to Awlgrip battle ship grey by Färben foils and films.
Färben and WG have been working together and just recently launched the new tougher, stronger and glossier films specifically for the marine market.
” The Wild Group team have put forth a good effort and it is obvious they know the process… there is a lot of interest in this job. I have given three Captains and two Owners a tour of the work who are serious about considering wrapping for their next job. …. we need a quote for the complete superstructure for next year. “ Comments Captain Aviva
“I believe the new Farben foils and films offer a superior finish to what’s currently on the market. We are excited to be working on this project and hope it gives confidence to other Captains and owners to come forward and discover the benefits of using Färben products too” comments Greg Hoar, Director, Wild Group.
