About GYG

GYG has pioneered many of the innovations and methodologies associated with superyacht painting and is recognised as the most technically advanced applicator in the industry.

GYG’s operations can be divided into three key markets:

New Build - the fairing and painting of new superyachts as part of the construction process

The exterior finish of a superyacht is a key part of the construction process ensuring the physical integrity and performance of its hull and super structures whilst being fundamental to the aesthetics of the finished yacht. GYG’s businesses have been responsible for the painting and finishing on many of the world’s largest and most iconic yachts.

GYG’s highly developed production methodologies are designed to synchronise with those of the shipyard and other sub-contractors to ensure maximum speed, efficiency and control during each project. Pinmar is now established as one of the leading paint applicators in the industry and enjoys a privileged position as a preferred paint contractor to several of the largest and most prestigious shipyards in Northern Europe.

Refit - the repainting and finishing of superyachts normally as part of a refitting programme

Superyachts require a major Refit inspection and service every five years to comply with maritime, insurance and industry regulations. Consequently, owners often use the major service periods as an opportunity for re-painting their superyachts due to significant cost savings and schedule synergies by combining such activities. Owners typically undertake an annual haul out and general maintenance to remain ahead of the service intervals and to keep the vessels in optimum condition.

GYG has unrivalled experience in the superyacht Refit market having painted more yachts over 30m than any other company. Today it focuses on the 40m+ market where the scale and complexities of completing a major Refit project in a short window are significant.
