This morning Marc Anassis met with Alastair Smith, Regional Sales Manager at Alexseal. They discussed the minute details of spraying Alpha 42 hull Nr. 1. Alpha Yachts, unlike any other production catamaran yacht builder will offer customers a choice of high quality metallic as well as gelcoat color options. There are acrylic paints which are mostly used in the automobile industry and higher quality, more durable polyester based paints which are predominantly used in the aircraft industry. Alpha Yachts will only use Alexseal, which is a top brand German paint manufacturer which most superyacht builders utilize.
In the below photos we can see the rudder plug being finalized and the large cockpit mold being faired. The port side deck is already finished and bonded to the boat while the stbd side is being laid up in its mold. We can also see the beautifully integrated mast step, which elegantly sits in a self draining recess.
