Andy Williams looks at the benefits and the quick turnaround time when you apply ceramic coatings if you have restricted time lines and budgets
When the boat show season is upon us, we find ourselves being called on by Captains, Management companies and Owners to restore the gloss of old tired paintwork and seal it with one of our ceramic and non-ceramic coatings. As we know most of the vessels attending the boat shows are for sale and do not have the time or the budget for a repaint but want the boat looking glossy and fresh for potential buyers.
The services that we offer to maintain a superior aesthetic appearance are a third of the cost and a fraction of the time to paint the vessel therefore we have a very real solution for the owners to get the vessel through the sale looking its best. We do not require the vessel to be out of the water and therefore can under take the works in a marina or whilst the vessel is berthed in a shipyard.
SAY GOODBYE TO SOOT STAINS
As the Caribbean season draws to an end and the Med season begins both private and charter vessels working dual seasons do not generally have the time for paint works. Captains, Management Companies and Owners are looking to reduce the time spent on keeping the paintwork looking glossy and maintaining the exterior surfaces thus reducing crew labour for these tasks. Our coatings once applied form a gas barrier, so soot and contamination can not penetrate the surface, it makes the exhaust areas very easy to clean, exhaust fumes and soot simply wash away. Crew do not need to use aggressive high alkaline degreasers.
