Bottom Jobs
The bottom paint is crucial as it is designed to keep off weeds, aquatic organisms, and barnacles from latching on your boat. At our boatyard, we pressure wash the bottom to eliminate any foreign material and give it two fresh coats of antifouling paint. There are different types available, allowing you to choose one best suited for your needs. If you do not know the paint to choose from, the staff can offer assistance.

We also offer spray-on coating to give your vessel a smooth finish because a well-done bottom job will enhance your yacht’s performance, speed, and durability.  

Hull and Deck Refinishing
Over the years, the coating gel oxidizes and requires a fresh one. At South Texas Yacht Service, we do professional hull and deck refinishing, with our choice of topcoat being AWLGRIP paint because it makes it easier to clean. The polyurethane coat lasts a couple of years with proper care and cleaning.

Do you offer hull waxing?
We do offer hull waxing to protect your hull from the damaging effects of the sun and salty water. Our hull waxing involves two steps. First, compounding the whole area with an abrasive using high-speed buffers, after which we hand wax using high-speed buffers to make the gelcoat vibrant.  

Hull waxing is an important part of your boat needs that should be done at least twice yearly. The wax is strong enough to withstand the salty water and algae. Waxing also makes cleaning easier as nothing sticks to the waxed surfaces. 

Can you repair the blisters on the bottom of my boat or yacht?
The occurrence of blisters on your boat can differ depending on the chemical components of the product used in the layout. We can repair the osmotic blisters on your boat, whether it’s just a few or they cover the entire bottom.

With an electronic meter, we can determine if the problem is superficial or has spread to other surfaces. Once the blisters have been identified, we sand the hull surface to entirely expose them and then flush them with fresh water to get rid of salty and acidic residues that may be causing damage to your boat.

Do you offer interior renovations as well?
Yes, we will give your boat an updated look depending on your preference and budget. Some options available to you at our repair yard include:

  • Updating the cockpit vinyl and carpeting with color and texture to match the exterior
  • Renewing the cabin carpet with colors to tie up the interior together
