Test for men and material
The race is a roller coaster ride for the mental health of the men and women on board as well as for the yachts themselves. Heat, cold, salt water, UV radiation. Mechanical stress, collisions and much more take their toll on the sailors. Added to this are lack of sleep, loneliness and the unpredictability of the world's oceans. What a breathtaking and exciting setting. And in the heart of this setting, we sent our ALEXSEAL® yacht coatings around the globe on the APIVIA, MAÎTRE COQ IV and 6 other yachts - as a stress and quality test par excellence.
Professional yacht photographer Michael Kurtz was able to take a detailed look at the surface of the Apivia. Both in the marina, at the start and after the finish, he was able to capture the racing yacht in detail in front of the lens. "The paint looked just as brilliant after the finish as it did when the race started," he reported to the ALEXSEAL® team.
That's high praise with a professional eye from the passionate sports photographer and yacht consultant, which we gladly accept. We were delighted to support the teams with high-gloss and high-durable coatings and we are already curious to see with how many yachts will sail around the world at the 10th edition in 2024 with our coating solutions .
