The Mastery of Metallic yacht Paints

In yacht finishing, Metallic Paints embody the fusion of art and science. This intricate process involves a two-part application, encompassing a Base coat and a Clear coat. Choosing the right exterior paint and applying it correctly are pivotal in achieving the perfect finish. It requires the harmonious use of various paint types to ensure robust adhesion and an exquisite, high-gloss shine.

Our craftsmen have a proven track record in understanding specification sheets for metallic paint products, ensuring meticulous mixing and application. Precise paint blending is the cornerstone of our success.

At Foster’s Yacht Services, we lead the yachting industry with a comprehensive suite of professional services that meet your exacting standards, all delivered with excellence at affordable rates.

Surface Preparation

Our process starts with rigorous surface preparation, including thorough cleaning, sanding, and priming. Primer lays the essential foundation, enhancing paint adhesion, and guarding against moisture intrusion, which can lead to oxidation and rust.

Base Coat Paints (Metallic)

The base coat is the foundational colored paint layer, free from strengtheners or hardeners and lacking gloss. To protect it and achieve a radiant shine, it requires a clear coat or urethane base coat. The synergy of these coats enhances the shine and surface protection.

Clear Coat Finishes

Clear coat paint, often referred to as a clear coat finish, is pigment-free paint. It uses specialized chemicals for seamless adherence to the painted surface. These formulations typically include UV inhibitors to protect against sunlight-induced fading. Often composed of urethane or polyurethane, they deliver a brilliant high-gloss finish.

Impeccable Execution

Precision guides every step of our process. After priming, sanding, and prepping, each layer of base coat and clear coat is meticulously applied in thin, uniform coats, with proper drying intervals. Post-application, our expert buffing and blending seamlessly integrate the paint repair with the original finish. Adhering to these principles is paramount for a professional, flawless appearance.

These guys do very good work. They repaired some fiber glass and an anchor plate along with adding a coat of paint to the hull.

Fosters Yacht Service is my preferred company to use for yard maintenance while in Ft. Lauderdale. Dennis, Erick, and Mark know the industry and how to get things done. Fosters keeps to their word and deadline. Highly recommended.

We started with Foster’s to repair some structural hull issues. They exceeded expectations with the repairs. We also had them do multiple repairs throughout the vessel from exterior paint to interior carpentry. The fit and finish have been amazing.

Dennis Foster and his shop are amazing. My boat had extensive fiberglass damage which was made worse by another repair shop. Dennis came to the rescue. Boat came back brand new and faster than promised. If you need any fiberglass work done, don’t go anywhere else! Thank you Dennis and team!
