Narrowboats and Paint Maintenance

Farécla is delighted to share that our Profile range was recently showcased and put to the test in the latest issue of Waterways Network Magazine:

David Babot (Market Development Manager - Marine & Industrial for Farécla) met with Waterways Network Magazine's Tony Jones to test the Profile range of surface rectification products on a narrowboat; its once vibrant green paintjob noticeably faded and dull as you would come to expect of years of UV light attacks from above and below for over 10 years.

With new professional paintjobs costing upwards of £10,000, it's unsurprising that many owners and boaters are looking for a more accessible - and affordable - solutions to restore their faded paint. 

Speaking to Tony, David said:

“The marine and boating industry generally follows the progress made in the automotive industry, and we have noticed boaters becoming increasingly interested in paint correction over the last few years,” said David. "Our Profile range of products is manufactured for exactly this purpose, and we’ve had many years to refine and perfect the process. It’s the ideal time for the brand to make waves in the inland waterways market.”

Farécla in Action

The full article sees David guiding Tony through the various steps of polishing - with the one step cutting compound Profile 400 Advanced Plus, followed by protecting with an application of Profile Polymer UV Wax.

Thank you to Tony and everyone involved at Waterways World for the opportunity.
