We have been very active in adapting to the new demands of the market in becoming more efficient and preparing for the next few years of growth in servicing a superyacht fleet which continues to expand in both number and size of vessels. As part of this preparation we formed the Global Yachting Group (GYG), with our new partners, Rolling Stock. Within GYG are several service companies, including Pinmar, Rolling Stock, Pinmar USA, Pinmar Supply, our yacht chandlery and supply network, along with Techno Craft our in-house scaffolding, containment and fittings business.
We’ve refinished 100s of the world’s finest yachts and increasingly we’re involved in finishing some of the largest and most exciting new builds in many of the leading superyacht building yards.
We’re also very proud to have developed the Pinmar Paint Standard, our industry’s first comprehensive statement of how a client's expected paint finish should be measured and agreed.
We continue to run the Pinmar Paint Academy’s non-profit making paint courses which teach yacht crew about what we do and how they can look after their paintwork.

The Pinmar Paint Standard is the most comprehensive and exacting in the industry and is the first time a yacht painting company has taken this important step to define, in a measurable way, the high standard achievable on its applications in a way which can be universally understood and used. The Pinmar Paint Standard includes measuring methods and specific acceptance criteria applying to: Colour Shade, Gloss, Orange Peel, Distinction of Image, Tension, Paint Film Thickness and Dust and also includes Fairing Straightness and other relevant criteria for New Builds. These criteria can be further refined to cover either high or low visibility areas.
Pinmar believes this unique standard will give clients a better understanding of quality together with added security while the works are in progress and during the warranty period and beyond.
