Colour customisation

With any UK built boat (with exception of the economy blue construction Tor and Mystere) you can choose your preferred colours for the following areas:

  • Deck: The base colour used for the top of the boat.
  • Hull: The block used across  the entire hull.
  • Trim - Seam: The band around the length of the boat which separates the  deck from the hull.
  • Trim - Seat: We can tint your seat to match your boat or club colours.
  • Trim - Rim: The band around the top edge of the cockpit. It is recommended that this be the same colour as the seam line.
  • Flash: We can add single colour or multicolour flash to your deck. From a single diagonal stripe on the back deck to more complex longitudinal flashes that take a bit more time.
  • Sparkle and Metalic: There may be an additional charge for metalic and metal flake finishes. We have a range of flake options and backing colours so please ask for detials.

Colour facts

  • Adding a pigment to your boat can add a small amount of weight to the final product, which may be important to those that  portage regularly. Adding pigment to the hull adds the most weight.
  • Vac bag boat use epoxy resin which is sensitive to heat and light. Adding a light-coloured pigment will help protect your boat from the elements.
  • White based pigments cover better than bright primary pigments which helps to produce a lighter boat. Never choose yellow if you want a light-weight.
  • It's well known that dark colours get hot in the sun. This can cause composites to ripple and move, this is why the majority of yachts are white. If you want a boat that will keep it's looks for longer, choose white.
  • Metal flake finishes use more gelcoat than other finishes so will have a negative effect on the overall weight.
