Wrap it Up! Private Yacht Charter Vessels – From Drab to Fab

Posted on

WRAP A YACHT

How do you change the color of your superyacht?  Can you do it without spending a small fortune?

Bring in the “wild boys” from Wild Group.  Let them wrap your yacht in vinyl and foil.

 

COST-EFFECTIVE VINYL

Wild Group is a vinyl yacht finishing company dedicated to the superyacht industry.  They wrap the entire exterior in foil and vinyl for a fraction of the cost of repainting.  Wrap alterings the look and color of the vessel.  It is also a protective skin that reduces scratches and fouling from wear and tear at sea.

Proteksan Turquoise motor yacht TURQUOISE  is a vessel with a complete hull transformation done by Wild Group.  They completed a full hull wrap, and black wrap on house sides for the 55.40 meter yacht in Port Denia, near Alicante, Spain.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WRAP A YACHT?

The TURQUOISE project was finished in time for the yacht to reposition on schedule to the Caribbean.  She was in place for the St Martin yacht charter winter season, December 2015 through April 2016.

GREAT WRAP, SO DO IT AGAIN

This was actually the second time Wild Group worked on the yacht.  They originally wrapped the yacht superstructure overhangs in Matterhorn White.  The paint had become dull due to constant exposure to the sun, so the wrap saved the day.  The success of this super structure project led the yacht owner and captain to decide to wrap the hull.  They also decided on a color change, from white to gun-metal gray, this time.

 

OTHER WRAP USES

The Wild Group also wraps pool linings, interiors, and window foils for privacy and heat control. Monaco yacht charter vessel LAUREN L had foil applied to 120 windows. The project took place in Sardinia.  It was completed between Italy yacht charter bookings – amazingly, in just six days.  Almost immediately, the crew of M/Y LAUREN L reported the air conditioning system was working more efficiently and interior temperatures were lower.

 

COMPANY PRESIDENT COMMENTS

Jana Sheeder, Co-Owner and President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, applauded the owner of motoryacht Lauren L for taking such an eco-friendly move in saving fuel for yacht charter guests by tinting all 120 windows.

“What a forward-thinking project to intiate!  I hope that other superyacht owners take advantage of the same technology to benefit the yacht, guests, crew, and the environment in this way.”

 

OTHER YACHT WRAPS

Of course, catering to superyacht owners sometimes means working on the owner’s “other” boats, no matter the size.  Formula 1’s Eddie Jordan loved the color of his Sunseeker 155 yacht BLUSH.  Mr. Jordan then wrapped the hull of his very first boat – a small Sunseeker Mohawk 29.  The team color-matched the wrap to the same paint scheme on motor yacht BLUSH. They used premium quality Färben brand foils.  They also wrapped the superstructure with a white application, including non-slip wraps to the foredeck.  Using a unique designer twist, they created a leather effect to the interior to give it a clean, refreshed look.

READY TO WRAP YOUR YACHT OR VEHICLE?

Why not book a yacht charter on a superyacht that’s been wrapped so that you can experience the wrap firsthand to decide.  ‘Try it before you buy it.”
