Don Goddard - Head of the Painting Department

Quality paint finishes are the final compilation of many different steps, each vital to the end result. Though we can use other paint systems, we predominantly use the full AwlGrip and AwlCare paint system from U.S. Paints. We have found the quality of the final finish, the long-term durability, as well as the ability to colour match on future repairs to be excellent. Philbrook's has climate-controlled covered facilities for vessels from 20' to 120', both power and sail. We can handle painting of fiberglass, aluminium, steel and wooden vessels.

Considering painting your older vessel to rejuvenate her appearance, as well as increasing her longevity, either by area, interior, or exterior, or totally?

If you are cruising in the area, stop by and we can show you examples of paintwork we have done, as well as doing a physical inspection of your vessel, allowing us to provide you with an estimate.

We can also help with fairing needs.
