Jet Thrusters

The use of bow or stern thrusters has made manoeuvring vessels, large or small, much easier. This is the reason these thrusters have been seeing much wider application over the past years. A Jet Thruster offers several benefit such as: Silent operation, no vulnerable propeller, and very installation options. Many thrusters do not work well in boats with a shallow draft at bow or stern. A Jet Thruster is the solution in this case.

Boat Spar Painting and Respray

Whether you have aluminium, carbon fibre or timber spars we can prepare and protect them with our carefully selected marine primers, paints and varnishes.

Yacht Varnishing

From deck brightwork to the varnishing of a yacht’s superstructure, our expert painting team will make sure your boat not only looks beautiful but is well protected from the elements too. We can also remove old varnish and restore old wood before application of the chosen varnish and can work on all types of timber vessels.

Osmosis Treatment and Repair

Osmosis is usually identified when the surface of a boat hull starts to blister. Our osmosis repair treatment is extensive and involves the following stages of work:

  • Blasting and peeling of the hull
  • Multiple sessions of steam cleaning to remove all salts and exposed laminates
  • Movement of the boat into a contained sheltered area
  • Infra-red lamps and hot air used to dry out the hull
  • Regularly monitored moisture readings taken from the boat
  • Anti Osmosis treatment applied (guaranteed for five years)
  • Epoxy fill the underside of the vessel as required
  • A further four coats of epoxy will then be applied to the hull, with the last coat acting as Tycoat, preparing the boat for the application of the last two coats of antifoul.

In order to avoid such extensive treatment, you may also want to consider our anti-osmosis treatment which protects the hull with multiple coats of a special gel shield and epoxy coating.

Topsides Painting and Respray

Over time the topsides of boats can fade and become dull. If your yacht is in need of a full respray, we have plenty of experience painting the topsides of boats of all shapes and sizes.

Our topsides painting service involves sanding down from the toe rail to the waterline, spot filling any minor imperfections, applying an epoxy primer, sanding back again to ensure a smooth finish and finally applying a top gloss coating.
