The 81m Feadship built superyacht Air is showing off a new paint job. WHile this is not rare in this industry, what is to be noted is the choice of the paint. The black matte is particularly striking and offers a dramatic look to the superyacht. “Black matte paint is a very delicate paint. It requires a careful preparation of the paint and coatings, as well as a continuous application to render the rare non-reflective and soft texture appearance. The previous paint must not interfere with the new paint coat.”
says the yard at Monaco Marine. Also to be mentioned is the importance of maintenance on this type of paint. Indeed as for metallic paint, a single scratch can be hours to repaint and blend the paint job.
