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.
