65′ foot Aluminium Twin Hull Super Powered Catamaran Repairs, Respray/repaint and Antifoul.
The Nicecotedazur boat show team has been busy with this project at the Gold Coast City Marina in Coomera on the Gold Coast. Underway is a complete exterior respray/repaint and anti-foul all performed to a budget. Major repairs are also being undertaken to the exterior and some “redesign” of the paint scheme along with a new area of non skid decking to increase the pleasure and useability of the vessel. The completed cat will include a complete respray with JOTUN Marine 2 Pac Urethane white and black. The non skid is to be altex/resene non skid coating.The hull will be coated with JOTUN advanced antifoul products after a thorough clean. Along side CleanABoat’s team there has also been a major interior refit underway to reface this vessel to be a majestic 21st century vessel.
Expected completion to be mid December this year (2010) ready for Christmas when we are sure it will have plenty of use! We might even join the owner for a brewski or three! Check out the gallery below and we will continue to update as we go!
35′ Riviera Flybridge Cruiser Osmosis Repairs, Gold Coast Marine Centre
This vessel is an older 1989 35 foot Riviera Flybridge vessel, recently purchased from Sydney the vessel was turned back to shore shortly after beginning its trip to the Gold Coast for our repairs, taking on water with a failed prop shaft seal the vessel was lifted and placed on a truck to deliver to our possession at the Gold Coast Marine Center in Coomera for her repairs.
Repair short list:-
- Failed prop shaft seals, both port and starboard
- Ceased prop shaft couplings
- New prop shafts required
- Numerous Spot Osmosis issues
- Re-Antifouling required
- Prop Speed props
- Full Machine Buff and polish
- New anode mounting on transom + new anodes all round
- New Transducer sender mounted on port side hull
- New boot stripe
We started this job by removing the old antifoul by sand blasting the hull, this allowed us to get a better visual on the osmosis issues and begin repairs. Once repaired the hull was coated with with 4 coats of JOTUN JOTACOTE 605 (2 part epoxy sealer), then 2 coats of JOTUN VINYGARD 88 (vinylester epoxy primer) and finally 3 coats of JOTUN SEA GAURDIAN black antifoul. We work closely with the technical representatives of the product systems we use to ensure the best and longest lasting final finish. During this process a new Transducer sender was installed on the port side hull and a new mounting position for a larger new anode was installed on the transom as the existing anode system was lacking. Two new prop shafts, prop shaft couplings & prop shaft seals where installed along with new ruder gland seals. The props where x-rayed and coated with prop speed before being put back together. Once this was completed we applied a new boot stripe and gave the entire vessel a complete buff and polish with nicecotedazurboatshow.com products.
During sea trials we noticed a large performance improvement with ~3 knot top speed improvement and improved performance through the range. Better economy also was noticed.
