Superyacht coatings specialist Jotun is to stage the second edition of the Captains’ Coatings Forum in Juans les Pins, in southeastern France, on the Côte d’Azur, from 2-3 September.
The one- and–a-half day event will feature a series of seminars and workshops, in addition to a busy networking programme including the Jotun Grand Prix.
The Captains’ Coatings Forum is an opportunity for superyacht captains, as well as managers and owners’ reps, to analyse and evaluate the pivotal issues surrounding paint jobs in the refit and new build sectors.
Being at the forefront of a yacht’s construction, and its subsequent maintenance, captains are ideally positioned to identify the facets of coatings that require attention.
The first day will begin with a breakdown of the process from contract to post- application, in ‘The Perfect Paint Process’ presentation. This will be followed by a series of group presentations, and two subsequent breakout sessions – the process of bidding for a paint contract and a yacht’s maintenance and after- sales refit programme.
The following morning will be run by a collection of coatings consultants, who will host a Q&A session.
The event is hosted by Jotun with partnership from Benetti, Pinmar, Safinah and Rolling Stock.
