Hull repaint Jeanneau 54DS

I am considering to repaint the blue hull of our Jeanneau 54DS. Does anyone have an idea whether such paintjob requires specific equipment, and what kind of cost range we would be looking at? The boat is currently located on the Canary islands. Thanks in advance!

Re: Hull repaint Jeanneau 54DS

can a cut and polish do! Very expensive job repainting for a yacht that size, 25000 to45000 for a pro job. there's some really good gel coat revivers on the market now

Re: Hull repaint Jeanneau 54DS

To do a decent job it takes special equipment, to do a terrible job probably not. At a minimum I would expect to see spray equipment and an controlled access shed.

as I said a pro job up to 40 odd grand, iv had a few Benes and found a really good cut and polish with some of the very good products and elbow grease available now can do wonders to sad looking hulls(it still wont make it sail faster)

Re: Hull repaint Jeanneau 54DS

Had my topside painted about 4 years ago. Sprayed on, indoors. Final bill was in low 20s US, iirc.

However, it wasn't straightforward. I had to have the old acrylic paint fully removed first. It would have been less, if it just needed a rough sanding over the same base.

It was the first repaint since new and I could also see the interior ribs beginning to "print" through the topside. I'm told, when the boat is brand new, the heat absorbed by the dark paint can cause the exterior fiberglass to cure faster, or something like that, and you can see the faintest ripple where a rib was behind the hull. You couldn't feel them with your hand, these were subtle. Dark hulls show every imperfection and, while it took light at just the right angle to see it at all, it drove me nuts. I had that all faired out before repainting.

I used Alexseal, which is made by the original inventor of Awlgrip. In the same original factory! Reportedly, his non-compete ran out after selling, so he got back in the game. Awlgrip is no longer his original formula anyway, as some of its components were banned. He felt he could make a better formula than just substituting banned components, as well as make an LP paint that was more repairable. After four years, I've been happy with it, but have a small nick here and there. I'm going to test the repair theory this winter.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Thumbs down Re: Hull repaint Jeanneau 54DS

that's a great price for a 54fter,i know a certain brand of yacht I think it was Oyster who incorporated a type of pressure valve spaced over the hull on the inside skin to release built up heat and pressure on only there dark blue hulls because of what you were saying about frame out lines. A very expensive problem until they sorted
it out

Re: Hull repaint Jeanneau 54DS

Paint for $40k?

Go for a full hull vinyl wrap.... And save 2/3s the price.

This boat is going from white to gold and its all vinyl:

Or add a bit of graphics and male it stand out

Vinyl is the way to go if you ask me. I have even seen some cars done with single color vinyl and it can look nice. Easy to redo.

Re: Hull repaint Jeanneau 54DS

I haven't seen it, but I would be worried about durability.
