Villefranche-sur-Mer, 20 January 2015 – Performance Yacht Painting and VeGa Yachts, an Italian fairing company, have announced that they have joined forces in order to provide a specialist service for new build fairing and finishing. Work has begun on a 1st project together on a 44 metre Couach currently under construction at their shipyard near Bordeaux in the South West of France.

VeGa Yachts have considerable experience in fairing on new builds, having worked on over 200 projects since their inception in 1986. The company has worked with world-renowned shipbuilders such as Azimut Benetti, Baglietto, Eurocraft, Mondo Marine, Mariotti and Tankoa. Specialist in finishing and refinishing, PYP has developed proprietary techniques enabling them to obtain unrivalled quality levels that consistently exceed Icomia recommended GU levels (95+).

For Gilles Delpy, Managing Director of performance Yacht Panting, “the partnership between our two companies will enable us to provide new-build shipyards in Europe with an excellent level of service and a larger pool of experienced and mobile applicators, that currently stands at 180 professionals with additional personnel at hand when needed”.

Gaetano Vella added: “After 30 years of working in the Italian new-build market, we believe that we have the experience and technical skills to approach larger projects, further afield. We have worked with PYP on a number of projects and the combination of our skill sets will greatly benefit our clients.”
