About This Project
Alfa Nero, the 81m, Oceanco built superyacht was looking for a solution to quickly and effectively give the exhaust areas of the hull a protective finish. The yacht also needed finishing touches on her transom steps.
The WG team covered the areas around the exhaust with a clear film layer to protect the paintwork. This could be easily replaced seasonally to keep the paint looking fresh and new. A colour matched film was used to match the original paintwork.
Our founder Greg Hoar comments on the reason behind protecting the expensive paint finish,
”The soot from the exhaust of the yacht strips the outer layer of the high gloss paint, which leaves the paint work very vulnerable to easily collecting dirt, cracking and damage, resulting in a costly and inconvenient respray. The polyurethane paint protection film prevents this from occurring.’’
Howard Lowe, from Royale Oceanic, commented on the project on behalf of M/Y Alfa Nero,
”This is the second project we have contracted the Wild Group team to complete and are very happy with the work and the level of service we have experienced… A very good colour match on the transom stairs; you wouldn’t know it wasn’t paint. ”

Some more Surface Clear Protection facts below:
1) Application of Clear vinyl surface films protect from general wear and tear and scratches, eliminating paint damage and preserving the residual value of the yacht.
2) The vinyl surface film is easy removed and doesn’t leave any residue or damage to the surface beneath when removed or replaced. It is extremely tough wearing made from urethane vinyl film and has a non-slip surface that comes in particularly handing when at sea.
3) Use Externally on Vulnerable Areas
High wear deck areas, cap rails, areas where fenders rub, areas where shoes or jeans might scratch the gel coat, steps, bathing platform, dinghie scuff areas, table tops and surfaces.
4) Use Internally on Vulnerable Areas
All types of interior surfaces that are vulnerable to scuffs and scratches, high gloss varnish surfaces, wooden furniture and panelling, glass table tops, stairwells, dashboards, bedside tables, wardrobes, window sills.
