Because so much of a yacht is made up of fiberglass or teak, yacht fiberglass repairs can refer to almost any physical surface repair on a yacht. It’s basic boat repair. Yacht Management’s team of technicians have years of experience in yacht fiberglass repair; when we refer to fiberglass repair, we mean we can fix the damage, no matter where it is.
More information on exterior, interior and hull repairs. We work with captains, and assistants to make sure that vessels are splash ready for yacht season, or for trips around the globe.
Signs Fiberglass Needs to Be Replaced
Before we diagnose a problem, let’s look at the symptoms.
1. The fiberglass has become delaminated, this leaves it open to the elements which is not good at all, especially if you decided to leave it for a season without regular dockside maintenance.
2. Spider cracks in the gelcoat.
3. Accumulation of boat blisters.
4. Signs of dry rot on the vessel may cause structural issues in the fiberglass.
Depending on the severity of the issues bellow, major yacht repair may be in order, or simple restoration might do the trick. Yacht Management technicians recommend visiting a local marina or boatyard annually for a haul out service and full yacht inspection to avoid these major issues long term.
If the signs are all there, what’s next?
