Academy

Improve on your yacht paint maintenance skills

About the academy

Keeping your yacht looking as good as the day it left the painting facility is no easy task. Maintaining and getting the best performances from today's coating systems requires a unique combination of knowledge and skills. We offer specialist training courses, giving inside knowledge, industry standard advice and tips on care and maintenance designed specifically for yacht crew.

The courses are held at our training centres in Palma and Barcelona, fully equipped with classrooms, offices and catering facilities. These facilities are also offered to external companies to run technical seminars or training programmes for new products.

  • FAQS
    What’s on offer?

    The courses are held at our state-of-the-art paint academies in either Palma de Mallorca or Barcelona.

    The three day course moves from theory to practice. We cover subjects like mixing and using products, maintaining topcoats, health and safety and environmental control.
    People who come on the course learn how to do things like patch repair damaged coatings, spray topcoat onto a panel and create a more professional finish on small jobs.

  • FAQS
    What are the benefits

    For the first time ever, crew have the opportunity to really learn how to maintain the paint finish onboard a superyacht from people who work with paint every day.

    Captains and officers have the opportunity to learn how to make planning decisions on touch-up and refit work.

    Owners save money because crew can carry out small jobs without a professional painter having to come onboard. Maintaining paintwork regularly could also add up to longer term savings and reduce yard time.

    The atmosphere was friendly with no pressure at all. We learned an incredible amount from the professional painters! My 2 deckhands returned to Asteria as master painters, much to the delight of the skipper and the owners. I absolutely recommend the Pinmar Paint Academy!
