Fairlie Yachts explains why it chooses WEST SYSTEM® epoxy to help it achieve a flawless finish on its range of exclusive classic yachts in a new case study from West System International (WSI).
To build its range of exclusive classic yachts, Fairlie Yachts uses only the finest materials. In conjunction with modern construction techniques, WEST SYSTEM epoxy helps Fairlie Yachts maximise hull strength, durability and resistance to torsional loads. WEST SYSTEM epoxy also helps the company achieve a flawless finish for all components to meet customers’ exacting quality standards.
As Duncan Walker, Managing Director at Fairlie Yachts explains, “The strength and durability of all the yachts in the Fairlie Yachts range is legendary and WEST SYSTEM epoxy plays a part in that.”
The case study explores how the company uses WEST SYSTEM products to build all the yachts in its classic range, including all wood-to-wood bonds, as well as for strip-planking and hull laminating. “We’ve had offers from many other epoxy providers over the years but we use WEST SYSTEM epoxy and we always will,” says Duncan. “It’s a product that helps us minimise risks during the build process and achieve the extremely high quality standards our customers expect and deserve.”
