Paint Facility

The facility was installed at Berthon in 1999 by the Dutch company Rowit, giving Berthon one of the premier boat paint spraying facilities in Europe, where we have over 8000 cubic metres of dedicated space purely for the preparation and spraying of yachts, mast and spars.

The investment made by Berthon ensures the preparation areas and the dedicated oven gives the best environment to produce first class paint finishes using filtered air to create as much of a dust free atmosphere. The paint facility is something that we continually invest in to ensure it produces the results that exceed our client’s expectations. The most recent investment being a heating upgrade from oil to gas that reduces the startup time of the heating systems and further aids cleanliness.

P North & South

P North and P South are the preparation areas, where yachts will spend the majority of their time when having paint work completed; this is due to the preparations before topcoating taking in general twice the duration as the final glossing and drying times, hence the two preparation areas allowing us to continually rotate work through the glossing booth.

Central Glossing Booth

The central Glossing Booth is where the magic appears to occur, but the real art is  in the preparation of the surface long before the gloss is applied. The Glossing Booth is 305m2 allowing us to paint yachts up to 90ft(28m) and is fully climate controlled, which includes temperature, humidity, and airspeed to ensure the ultimate finish.

Shadow Free Setting

Overall lighting gives a shadow-free setting throughout the booth, the walls are covered with a sticky coating that attracts any overspray or dust when boot-tops and caveta lines are prepared and temperature is controlled precisely to allow for perfect application and then raised after a pre-calculated period to aid curing, whilst reducing orange peel and other effects. The airspeed is controlled dependant on the type of paint being applied and the size of the yacht in the booth. All in all this environment allows our qualified paint sprayers to deliver first-class results time and again for our clients.

The Paint Team

The paint team is made up of 10 full-time skilled employees, providing the range of expertise that we need from exquisite varnishing to Superyacht quality finishers with a keen eye for detail. Our Senior Charge Hand for the Paint Team has over 20 years’ experience in the marine spraying industry.
