Oceania Marine completed a nine-week full exterior re-paint as well as a range of other works on the 46-metre motor yacht Vantage.
The project needed to be completed within the nine-week time period as the vessel was committed to being transported to its next destination by ship on a fixed date.
Oceania Marine completed the re-paint to full specification including repairs, removal and reinstatement of caulking, fittings, hatches and doors.
Brent Charlesworth , the project manager, had overall control and paint coatings were supervised by Cameron Powell. Cameron commented, “Our paint team peaked at 26, supported by engineers, fitters and boat-builders who did the removals and caulking. We divided the painters into smaller work groups of five to eight with team leaders tasked with specific aspects of the project. I have completed a lot of big projects with these guys and I know them all individually. We needed that experience on this job as we only had one chance to get it right – no time for re-work on this one.”
In addition to the re-paint, a work-list covering Lloyds survey, equipment servicing and maintenance was carried out including some carbon composite fabrication.
Martin Gleeson, managing director of Oceania Marine remarked, “My congratulations go out to all involved for making it on time and for the high standard achieved. As I heard, said by one of the painters ‘It would not be often when you do a project in such a short time you send away a happy client’.”
M/Y Vantage will be off-loaded in Tahiti where the owner will join her for cruising.
