Lettering and Finishes

Yacht Lettering

HERE’S SOME EXAMPLES OF OUR LETTERING STYLES

Plexi-Line

By far our most cost effective 3D letter incorporating LED illumination. Designed to suit a budget whilst maintaining a high standard of finish and a lighting effect you would expect on a larger yacht.

Available from 5mm thick right up to 50mm thick. Letters can be gloss or matte Plexi acrylic or even painted to match a specific RAL colour or paint code.

Letters are backed with a 10mm thick, light diffusing Opal Plexi as standard and fronts can be bevelled as an option.

NIGHT MODE: LED Colour – Red, Blue, Green, or RGB colour change

Base-Line

Simple lines with minimal surface protrusion. A popular style synonymous with the marine and superyacht industry. An ideal choice for smaller production boats around 70ft-80ft where swim platform space is minimal and letters are of a smaller scale.

The 316L polished stainless steel top letter is backed with a 10mm thick, light diffusing, Opal Plexi acrylic offering spotless halo illumination

The stainless steel front letter is supplied as 2mm thick as standard or 4mm as optional. The opal backing can be bevelled as an optional extra.

NIGHT MODE: LED Colour – 3000k Warm White

Mid-Line

The MID-LINE range is perfectly suited to the 25m+ market where medium sized letters require a little added rigidity and flare.

Letters are supplied with 4mm thick mirror polished stainless steel top letter and backed with a 10mm thick, flush or bevelled, light diffusing opal with spotless illumination.

A gloss white or black, 8mm thick, Plexi acrylic trim seals the back of the letter adding extra depth, rigidity and increased definition. As a general rule, white backing for dark hulls and black against whites and lighter coloured hulls.

NIGHT MODE: LED Colour : 5000k Warm White

High-Line

Primarily for the larger 50m+ projects with increased letter and logo sizes. Extra letter thickness gives superior rigidity and aesthetically correct proportions to the size of yacht.

A 4mm polished stainless steel top letter is laminated to 28mm of solid machined Plexi. Comprising of a 20mm, flush or bevelled, opal with an 8mm thick trim offering spotless halo illumination.

The backing trims give beautiful letter definition, contrasting against the superstructure surface. As a general rule, white backing for dark hulls and black against whites and lighter coloured hulls.

NIGHT MODE: LED Colour – 4000k Warm White

Custom-Line

Some prestigious projects often require larger than normal letters or that little extra something for added character and prestige.  Machined from solid stainless steel, acrylics, metals and even Teak…if you can think it, we can most probably create it.

Our Custom-Line allows you to indulge your creativity with a variety of CNC cut letter profiles, shapes and surface finishes to suit even the most individual of tastes.

Add to that a plethora of marine grade luxury finishes from Gold PVD to specific paint codes…let your imagination run free.

Yacht Finishes

HERE’S SOME EXAMPLES OF OUR YACHT FINISHES

Mirror Polished Finish

Typically the industry standard finish for the majority of yacht signs around the world and it is the perfect choice for obvious reasons.

From 1.2mm up to 50mm thick, solid mirror polished yacht letters are not only aesthetically pleasing but in keeping with the nautical styling of most yachts. A superior streak free mirror finish. Available in Brushed, Satin or Matt finish

PVD Gold Finish

316 stainless steel letters are mirror polished and coated in a hard gold coating to give the appearance of 24 Carat, solid gold, letters. The anti corrosive properties and the mirrored effect of the stainless steel are preserved beneath the finish.

PVD gold will suit both modern and traditional yachts alike with superior weather resistance compared to gold leaf.

Available in Matt, Satin or Brushed finish

PVD Anthracite Black

316 stainless steel letters are mirror polished and coated in a hard black anthracite coating to give an ultra modern finish to the letters whilst maintaining the anti corrosive properties and the mirrored effect of the stainless steel beneath.

Style nods to black supercar alloys and modern Swiss watch bezels. Not for the yachting purist!

Available in Matt, Satin or Brushed finish

PVD Champagne Gold

316 stainless steel letters are mirror polished and coated in a hard champagne gold coating to give a subtle, light gold, hue.  The anti corrosive properties and the mirrored effect of the stainless steel are preserved beneath the finish.

The Champagne Gold finish is seen regularly on modern smart phones and tablets and also luxury watches.

Available in Matt, Satin or Brushed finish

PVD Designer Range

Seen here from left to right, Bronze, Copper and Rose Gold finishes. 316 stainless steel letters are mirror polished and coated in a hard coating to give modern jewellery like finish to the letters. The anti-corrosive properties and the mirrored effect of the stainless steel beneath are maintained.

Think of Pink Champagnes, Rose Gold Jewellery, Copper hues and Riviera sunsets.

Available in Matt, Satin or Brushed finish

RAL Painted Acrylic

Acrylic, Plexi, Stainless Steel or Aluminium letters can be wet sprayed or powder-coated to any desired colour. Levels of matte and gloss finish can also be requested.

RAL numbers and Pan-tones can be matched to existing colours onboard the yacht to continue a specific colour theme across, or as part of, the yacht signage.

Solid Teak

A material displayed in abundance on yacht exteriors, yet unique in the form of lettering. Solid Teak lettering can be CNC machined to suit most designs and logos.

The addition of stainless steel sees the two synonymous materials sit harmoniously together creating an organic yet crisp nautical feel.

Definitely for the most style conscious of customer.

Non Illuminated Yacht Lettering

Of course, illuminated Boat lettering is not for everyone, in light of this all our yacht names & logo styles are also available as a ‘non’ illuminated style. In conjunction with this we also produce acrylic hailing port lettering, identification numbers & stainless steel boat names which can also be illuminated.

Please take some time to browse through our above yacht / boat lettering styles and finishes to see what suits your project best.
