Today, January 15, 2016 saw Performance Yacht Painting (PYP), specialists in superyacht and megayacht paintwork, and VeGa Yachts, an Italian fairing company, announce that they will work together in order to provide a specialist service for new build fairing and finishing. Their first project together is a 44-metre superyacht by Couach, currently in build at their shipyard near Bordeaux in the South West of France.
VeGa Yachts boast remarkable experience in fairing on new builds, having worked on over 200 projects since their inception in 1986. The company has worked with such prestigious shipyards as Azimut Benetti, Baglietto, Eurocraft, Mondo Marine, Mariotti and Tankoa. Specialist in finishing and refinishing, PYP has developed proprietary techniques enabling them to obtain unrivalled quality levels that consistently exceed Icomia recommended GU levels (95+).
Gilles Delpy, Managing Director of Performance Yacht Painting, commented: “The partnership between our two companies will enable us to provide new-build shipyards in Europe with an excellent level of service and a larger pool of experienced and mobile applicators, that currently stands at 180 professionals with additional personnel at hand when needed.”
Gaetano Vella added: “After 30 years of working in the Italian new-build market, we believe that we have the experience and technical skills to approach larger projects, further afield. We have worked with PYP on a number of projects and the combination of our skill sets will greatly benefit our clients.”
