How to Choose the Perfect Colour for Your Boat

May 5, 2018

Boat painting is the best way of customising and personalising your boat. But with so many options in the market, it is not easy to make a choice when it comes to the colour and the type of paint to use. Flight Marine has written this blog post to make that choice easier. Enjoy!

Preference
When picking out a colour for your beloved boat, it really does come down to personal preferences. Boats are more than just vehicles that carry you around in water. To many boaties, their boats are an extension of their personality and a means of expression. The best way to personalise your boat is boat painting and nothing will set your boat apart more than painting it with your favourite colour.

Reflection
Personal preference is a big factor when it comes to boat painting, but another factor that is also important is reflective abilities of the colour you pick. Lighter colours like white or yellow will reflect more light and heat and therefore you will have a cooler experience on board, while darker colours like black or blue will absorb more heat and light so your boat will be hotter. Having said that, this factor doesn’t play a very big role in boat temperature.

Quality
This is something you should never compromise with, especially when it comes to boats and boat painting. Boats are expensive, and if proper care is not taken, they can be ruined quite easily. When you paint your boat, you are changing its exterior, and some boats can be very fragile on the outside. You should always use the highest quality paints, and you should always employ experienced, skilled and professional people to paint your boat for you. Doing otherwise might be a cheaper option, but in the long run, your boat will suffer and so will your wallet.
