Lady Moura the iconic Blohm & Voss 105 metre super yacht has suffered somewhat from the ravishes of sea air and the burn of the Mediterranean sun.
Whilst vinyl specialists at the Wild Group were working on Lady Moura’s chase boat, the Mangusta 80, Little Saf, the captain enquired about restoring Lady Moura’s external blind windows. “They were in desperate need of renovation” he said. The seals were broken and air ingress was causing discoloration and delamination at the edge of the glass. There was also oxidisation on some of the windows making them appear red.
It was agreed that a marine grade blue tint vinyl film was the best solution, offering the perfect colour tint match. The Wild Group sourced a specific bespoke blue tint and answered all the captains’ questions about the material.
New foil was applied to twenty four of the blind windows including some of the larger complex shaped windows. The silicone seal at the window edges was removed prior to applying the new foil and then re-applied afterwards, so as to ensure longevity and a great standard of finish.
The window Mullions were also in desperate need of replacement. These were originally black anodized aluminum but had been bleached in the sun delivering uneven tones of grey/ black throughout.
188 Mullions were lined in a black matt vinyl offering a UV protective coat that would outperform paint and prevent the timely task of having them removed and replaced while the boat is put into a dusty work shed. Again the silicone seal at the mullion edges was removed prior to applying the new vinyl and then re-applied afterwards, so as to ensure longevity and a great standard of finish.
