Yacht Refinishing

Darthaven's Yacht Refinishing services include maintenance, polishing & interior valets. Further to this we also carry out antifouling, colour matches and repairs to painted or gelcoat surfaces.

Applying antifoul correctly to your boat each season will not only help prevent underwater growth but will also reduce fuel consumption while increasing speed through the water. Our yacht refinishing team will prepare and antifoul your boat giving you season lasting protection with International & Hempel products used.

Polishing & Antifouling Packages (all prices shown are excluding VAT and per metre)

Bronze Treatment 

Our great value Bronze package starts by preparing your boat, firstly washing the hull & superstructure and then drying all surfaces. Next we use cutting compound to remove oxidation and then we machine polish to achieve a high gloss finish. High quality products are used throughout this process.

RIBS & Sailing yachts - £50.00 per metre                    Motor boats - £66.00 per metre

Silver Treatment

Further to the bronze treatment, the silver standard includes the application of 3M Marine ultra wax. The paste wax vastly reduces the risk of UV damage and gelcoat fade. This product also seals the surface for long lasting weather protection of up to 18 months. We then hand buff to leave a high shine finish.
