Regular maintenance by our specialists ensures a longer life cycle of your boats.
Boats will last longer and buying new boats could be postponed.
Service, re-varnish and polish your shell – it will look and feel like new!


A complete re-varnish consists of the following work**:
• Careful cleaning of the boat, which in fact is a minute inspection;
• Sanding down of existing varnish or gel coat;
• Repair of minor scratches and dents;
• The eventual spraying of (in most cases) three layers of superior two-component varnish and sometimes prior to this a sprayable priming and/or a "pre-varnish". (Depending on the background);
• Supplying and fitting new slides, stemball and in case of a boat with decking (Taft): new decking;
• Checking of fin, bulkhead seals, seats, stretchers, riggers and steering. (We will charge for these items only as required). You can apply for an overhaul of your boat on this website. We will make verbal agreements of this overhaul of your boat in advance.

** Excluding major damage repairs, e.g. perforations & deep gouges/scratches, damaged washboards, broken shoulders, seriously abraded or damaged finish, etc. (We will discuss these repairs with the client first) An overhaul is a handy time to incorporate major repairs.
