About This Project
Naomi S receives full superstructure refresh in Port Vauban, Antibes.
The gelcoat was faded and old from sundamage and following a Färben white gloss application she looks like new again ready for the season ahead.
“This is a common story for many boats of this age. “ Comments Greg Hoar, Director of Wild Group.
“…Traditionally the boats option is to have a full respray because the gelcoat cannot be buffed any further due to becoming too thin. The gelcoat over time becomes powdery, grazed and picks up dirt very easily. The vinyl film finish is an excellent choice. In this case the finish was applied while the yacht was still in the water, requiring no tenting and therefore easy logistics for the captain and crew, while also reducing costs for the owner.”
Charter yachts also lend themselves to using film applications .
The film or foil will reduce precious and costly time off the water and also protect the yacht underneath which can then be removed easily if desired.
This could be a clear coated vinyl film or a fresh new colour for the season!
