Jotun offers superyachts unique lifecycle support with launch of JotunCare

Offered By Jotun Performance Coatings

Jotun is cementing its position as a preferred coatings partner within the superyacht industry with the launch of JotunCare, a unique post-sale and lifecycle service solution.

The Norwegian headquartered firm, a top global provider of advanced marine coatings and antifoulings, has built the offer around four cornerstones, tailored specifically to meet market needs. The result is a solution delivering long-term support to superyacht captains, officers and their crew, helping them optimise and maintain coatings for maximum performance, durability and protection. 

Jotun has been active in the superyacht industry for over 25 years. Gary Ward, Jotun’s global superyacht fleet support manager, said that in that time, the company has built an intimate understanding of the demands, challenges and requirements within the sector.

“Superyachts deserve the very best solutions. Not just when they’re built, but over the entire lifecycle of the project,” Ward commented. “Unfortunately, too many owners and captains experience enthusiastic supplier support and assistance when it comes to choosing coatings and during applications, but then that contact point fades away. At Jotun, we understand that coatings are integral to successful on-going operations and protection. As such, the support these vessels receive should be long-term and fully integrated, that is the essence of JotunCare. We are supporting the customers to ensure they get the best results over the operational lifetime, not just in the yard. We are dedicated to lasting value, protection and performance, always.”

JotunCare is the latest launch for a company that is well known for its innovative product and service developments within the maritime market.

It is built around the following elements:

  • Jotun Fleet Support, providing a dedicated point of contact so customers can easily access support
  • Lifecycle Inspections, whereby Jotun’s technical specialists monitor coating performance with measurable data
  • Crew Education, with training and workshops for crews to understand optimal maintenance and care
  • JotunCare App, offering a simple way for crew to access instant support and vital information

“Paint is sometimes perceived as a bit of a pain within the superyacht industry, and we want to transform that,” Ward added. “With JotunCare we aim to simplify coatings performance for customers, giving them the peace of mind that they’re always getting the best from their Jotun products.

Kent-Ove Kragseth Sylte, global marketing manager, commented, “We believe care goes far beyond face-to-face meetings at yards, it’s about staying at someone’s side to add long-term value, build understanding and deliver optimal results. That’s what a preferred partner does.”

Jotun is a single-source supplier for coatings covering every aspect of superyachts, including tank linings, antifoulings, fillers, primers and topcoats. The JotunCare app is now available for iPad, with full iOS and Android integration set to launch imminently.
