Why would I prefer wrapping to painting?
In this age there are many solutions for looking your boat like new again. Whether you will polish, spray or paint your boat these are expensive solutions, wrapping however is:
How long will it take to apply the vinyl?
This depends on the size of the yacht and what your needs are. The advantage over paint is no dry time so you will not have endless waiting time to hit the water again. Usually it will take 3-5 days for a full hull wrap.
Can I load and unload a wrapped boat with a boat lift?
Yes, we will advise to put some cloths between the hoists and the vinyl, just as you would when having a painted yacht.
How do I maintain a wrapped yacht?
You can easily clean the vinyl with shampoo and water just as you would with your car. Good wax will keep the dirt away as usual.
How do you repair damages?
There are several possibilities fitting to the damages done. When it is a small scratch some polishing will be enough. With a deep scratch we can apply a carpet cut (this will be seen when up-close), and for large damage we remove and re-apply the section where the damage was.
What is the width of the vinyl?
The width of the vinyl rolls are in general 1500mm.
Can you compare paint to vinyl?
You need to see vinyl as an alternative method to painting with its pros and cons. Vinyl will be less bright than a high gloss paint, but the matte color will be better with the vinyl than paint. Since we offer a wide variety of vinyl’s there will always be a color that will suit your needs.
What about the subsurface before applying?
It is of importance that any damages are repaired before applying the vinyl to the designated.
Are there differences in quality Vinyl?
Yes, since Trim-Line is a licensed company working closely with 3M we are able to offer the best quality on the market. We stand for years of quality and experience. There will be cheaper alternatives but those will also result in cracks or curls in the vinyl. Our choice to use 3M is therefore the most obvious since it offers the best quality and durability.
Can it be easily removed?
The vinyl can be removed, but we will advise to do this before having it for 5 years. After this period the adhesive will harden and will make it more difficult and time-consuming to remove. Our advice is to remove it after 3 to 5 years maximum after applying.
