A wrapping revolution!
Giving a second youth to your boat is no longer an impossible dream. By Vinyl wrapping your boat, the hull of a 30-foot sailboat for example, can be completely coloured in just 2 days and at a lower cost (typically 30-60% less) than when using paint.
Our team of professional vinyl wrapping specialists can transform your boat into a masterpiece in no time using a unique, flexible, quick, cost-effective and durable solution that also protects your boat. Another significant advantage of vinyl boat wrapping compared with paint: you can revert to the initial hull if you plan on selling your boat. This option is very popular with people buying new yachts who want to personalise it to their taste but without impacting on the resale ability or resale value. The films we use offer a protection from the UV effects of the sun which means that when you sell the boat to purchase your next one, the wrap can be removed revealing a ‘good as new’ gel coat finish underneath.
We have always used only the best materials with guaranteed lifespans that we have tested on the water & have sailed around the world so you know exactly what to expect from your vinyl wraps and graphics.
In December 2013 we joined forces with MACtac giving Grapefruit Graphics accredited Approved Applicator status. This partnership strengthens both companies leadership in boat wrapping and proposing the upmost quality when it comes to boat wrapping to highly demanding boat owners and yards. This powerful partnership will make it possible to address the growing demand for vinyl hull wraps in the UK which is the biggest market in Europe as far as the boat fleet is concerned.
With options to choose such as metallic, standard colour and protective films, we have a solution for you.
But why stop on the outside? Our vast range of vinyls can also be used inside you boat as well to give a new lease of life to your interior. Whether is a carbon-look instrument panel or changing the colour of internal walls and cupboards, only your imagination is the limit. You may even consider applying a new texture, e.g. a velvet or brushed aluminium finish (in several versions).
We are not just a wrapping company…
For our corporate charter clients we can provide both hull and sail decals (see sail branding) to make sure your company gets noticed on the water.
