Before Morris Yachts’ brand new vessel ‘Sweet Breeze’ is shipped to Newport Beach, California this autumn the 36ft M36 Series boat will have its striking blue, white and gold leaf livery protected in transit by Awl®-Coat TPC.
Another enthusiastic convert to our TPC coating, the New England yard builds between 20 and 30 new yachts a year.As with Sweet Breeze, the business often has to transport finished vessels overland for their new owners.This is where TPC comes into its own and paint supervisor Glendon Stanley has no hesitation in recommending it:
“If anyone needs to truck their boat, a coating of Awl-Coat TPC will protect the hull against the rigors of over-the-road traveling. It’s an excellent armor for the hull.”
Morris Yachts, which has two full service yards in Bass Harbor and Northeast Harbor, Maine, featured in an earlier issue of Awlgrip® News, when the family business celebrated 35 successful years as a premier builder of semi-custom yachts.
The competitive business is still growing and by the end of this year, its busiest season ever, it will have commissioned and launched more than 160 boats and painted more than 70 in its six operational paint bays.
“We have a long and successful relationship with Awlgrip and work closely with Awlgrip’s Tim Taylor who gives us excellent on-site support,” Glendon added.
