Pettit’s new Hydrocoat SR is a dual-biocide, multiseason bottom paint that offers excellent protection against both hard and soft fouling while keeping the environmental impact to a minimum. The water-based bottom paint uses an organic algaecide and Pettit’s Clean Core Technology to reduce the amount of harsh solvents and heavy metals released into the water, and the self-polishing surface wears away with use, continuously exposing a new layer of biocide and eliminating paint-film buildup. Hydrocoat SR is available in blue, red, and black, and is offered in quarts and gallons.
To showcase its Prestige line of motoryachts and express cruisers, French boatbuilder Jeanneau welcomes select guests to its impressive factory in Les Herbiers in western France. Prospective boat buyers, dealers, and a few lucky journalists got a glimpse of the entire boatbuilding process from the design and engineering studios to the yard where the boats are loaded for truck delivery. Oh and there was a really nice lunch with a little champagne as well!
