The Hempel Yacht website offers sailing enthusiasts tips and advice on boat care and maintenance

Yacht coatings specialist Hempel Yacht has launched a new website offering practical tips and advice on boat care and maintenance.

The

website includes a selection of how-to videos and tutorials, from choosing and

applying a hull coating to cleaning and varnishing wood.

It also contains comprehensive

product information, a Paint

Calculator to help you work out the amount of paint you need for each task, a

list of stockists and news on new product launches, boat shows and yacht

care trends.

It aims to save sailing enthusiasts both time and money when completing

boat maintenance work.

Thomas Olsen, marketing and business manager for yachts at

Hempel, said: ‘Maintenance

is an essential part of keeping a boat’s sailing properties and appearance –

not to mention value.

‘But sometimes yacht owners end up wasting time and money

by either choosing the wrong product for the job or applying the product

incorrectly. The new website ensures they have the information they need to do

a perfect job first time.’

Hempel

has used its experience as a supplier and advisor to boat yards to create the site.

Keen sailor Thomas added: ‘The

advice comes from professionals who know the tricks required to achieve a

perfect result.

‘Our motto

at Hempel is ‘Keep sailing’, because we want to help ensure yachting

enthusiasts spend as much time out on the water as possible.

‘Our new website is just one aspect of how we can

help.’

The

short how-to videos are also available on Hempel’s new Yacht YouTube channel.
