Yacht painting is an important element of boating. A good paint system can transform a yacht into something stunning, and not only does it provide an aesthetically appealing appearance, but also an integral part in maintaining the longevity of the yacht. In order to not only create and maintain the perfect paint finish to a yacht, it is integral that the best quality yacht paint is used. This raises the question of: what makes a good yacht paint?
The essential elements to any particular yacht paint is to ensure that there is minimal paint build-up, the hull remains clean and there is minimal environmental impact when submerged in water. UV protection is something that should also be taken into consideration when maintaining the structure of the yacht.
Depending on the type of yacht and the purpose for which it is used also impacts the particular range or brand used in the painting process. For example, aspects such as the areas in which the yacht would be sailing, i.e. fouling areas is particularly important, as is whether the yacht is high-speed. This is why there are a wide range of primers, topcoats, undercoats and other finishes to guarantee that every element of a boat, from high-speed yacht to sailing boat is covered and to the highest standard.
