Yacht Paint Survey

At ACP SURVEYORS, we know that a yacht’s appearance is a reflection of her Owner’s passion and dedication to maintaining a pristine and elegant vessel. A well-maintained paint job not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your yacht but also plays a crucial role in preserving the integrity of its structure. With our expert Yacht Paint Survey service, we provide you with a thorough assessment of your yacht’s paintwork, ensuring it remains both visually stunning and structurally sound.

Yacht Paint Analysis

Our team of seasoned marine surveyors is committed to delivering an exceptional service that combines their expertise in yacht paint analysis with a keen eye for detail. We offer a comprehensive approach to evaluating your yacht’s paintwork, covering various aspects that include:



Paint Condition Assessment:

Our surveyors will inspect the paintwork to identify signs of wear, fading, or damage, such as cracking, blistering, or peeling. This thorough evaluation allows us to recommend appropriate maintenance or repair strategies to preserve your yacht’s beauty.


Top-coat Condition:

Assessment through our in-house wave scanner and gloss meter used by our RMCI and FROSIO certified inspectors. The orange peel, the DOI (Distinctness Of Image), and the gloss of the topcoat will be verified and a dedicated report will be issued.


Coating Thickness Measurement:

By using specialised tools, we accurately measure the thickness of your yacht’s paint layers. This information is essential in determining the durability and longevity of the coating, as well as identifying any areas that may require attention.



Corrosion Detection:

By means of our Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge Olympus our expert surveyors will closely examine your yacht’s steel and aluminium for signs of corrosion or erosion on the hull, tanks, pipes or any structure where access is limited to one side, which can lead to structural damage if left unaddressed. We’ll provide recommendations for preventative measures and treatments to ensure the longevity of your vessel.



Antifouling Inspection:

A proper antifouling paint application is vital for maintaining your yacht’s performance and efficiency. We assess the condition of the antifouling paint and offer guidance on the best practices for maintaining optimal underwater performance.


Paint Compatibility Analysis:

Different paint types and brands may react differently when applied to your yacht. Our surveyors can provide advice on paint compatibility to prevent potential issues such as blistering, delamination, or discolouration.


Comprehensive Yacht Paint Survey Report:

Our detailed report highlights the findings of our assessment, complete with high-resolution images and expert recommendations for addressing any concerns related to your yacht’s paintwork.
