Emerson Yacht Finishing

Maintenance for Yachts and Boats

Emerson Yacht Finishing provides various services to owners, skippers and boat yards in Falmouth and surrounding areas in Cornwall.

This includes:

  • Anti-fouling

    We are highly experienced in providing high quality workmanship on all substrates and can help choose the best antifoul for your boat or waters. We undertake antifoul stripping either by hand or by using chemicals depending on the hull material. Epoxy systems can then be applied before a new antifoul system.


  • Varnish Work

    It’s important to use the right approach and materials for the long lasting quality finish that all yacht owners desire. To this end we use high quality products such as EpifanesHempel, Awl Grip and International  to build up the robust multi-coat finish that, with suitable care, will protect a boat’s woodwork for years.

  • Yacht Painting

    Whether a boat’s top-sides, coach roof or interior, Emerson Yacht finishing have the skills to prepare and paint any part of a yacht or motor boat. We take an individual approach to each project’s requirements ensuring that the best materials and paint system are used in every situation.

  • Polishing & Metalwork

    For owners of fibreglass yachts, hull polishing with the right products can both make the hull shine and add protection from UV as well as add that ‘little extra performance’ for racing yachts.

    Cleaning, polishing and restoration of any boat’s metalwork can make a huge difference to its longevity and aesthetic benefits. Bringing older bright work back to life is a skilled and sometimes time consuming process, this is where a professional service can be of great benefit.

  • Deck Treatments & Finishes

    Teak and other wooden decks can be revived and protected with oil treatments or cleaned and restored with non-corrosive cleaners

    Deck paint suitability differs for each design and type of boat. Selection of the correct system and professional application can enhance a boat’s appearance as well as improve on-deck safety.

  • Maintenance and On-going Upkeep

    Good, well-planned winter maintenance acts as a preventative measure to reduce long term costs as well as keeping your boat looking and performing at her best.

    Emerson Yacht Finishing are happy to undertake maintenance work and enjoy strong relationships with our long term customers providing advice as well as skilled services.
