Yacht Lettering and Finishes

Yacht Lettering

HERE’S SOME EXAMPLES OF OUR LETTERING STYLES

Plexi-Line

By far our most cost-effective 3D yacht letter assembly that incorporates 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. Yacht letters can be gloss or matte acrylic or even painted to match a specific RAL colour or paint code.

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

NIGHT MODE: LED Colour – 6000K Crisp Cool White

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 10mm thick, light-diffusing opal plexiglass 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 and backed with 10mm thick (flush or bevelled) light-diffusing opal plexiglass, for spotless illumination.

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

NIGHT MODE: LED Colour – 4000k Neutral 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 onto 28mm of solid machined acrylic. Comprised of 20mm flush/bevelled opal plexiglass laminated onto 8mm acrylic backing, the assembly offers spotless halo illumination.

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

Custom-Line

Some prestigious projects often require larger-than-standard letters, or that little extra something for added character and esteem.  Custom-Line products are machined from a wide range of high-end materials, including – but not limited to – stainless steel, acrylic, carbon fibre and even solid teak.

If you can think it, we can almost certainly create it.

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

And coupled with a myriad of luxury marine-grade finishes – from specific paint codes to PVD coating – you can really let your imagination run wild.

Yacht Finishes

HERE’S SOME EXAMPLES OF OUR YACHT FINISHES

Mirror Polished Finish

The industry standard finish for the majority of yacht signs around the world and the perfect choice for those who want their sign to shine radiantly as the sun hits its stainless steel fronts.

From 1.2mm up to 50mm thick, solid mirror-polished yacht letters are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also in-keeping with the luxury sensibilities of the yacht industry. Available in polished, matte, satin or brushed finishes.

PVD Gold Finish

316L stainless steel letters are mirror-polished and put through a process known as physical vapour deposition (PVD). In this instance, a hard gold coating is applied to give the appearance of 24-karat solid gold letters, while the anti-corrosive properties and mirrored effect of the stainless steel are preserved beneath the finish.

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

Available in polished, matte, satin or brushed finishes.

PVD Anthracite Black

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

This style takes inspiration from jet-black supercar alloys and modern Swiss watch bezels. Truly an ideal look for those wanting to make a bold statement.

Available in polished, matte, satin or brushed finishes.

PVD Champagne Gold

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

Champagne gold finishes are commonly found on modern smart phones and tablets, as well as high-end watches and opulent home furnishings.

Available in polished, matte, satin or brushed finishes.

PVD Designer Range

Example provided: Copper.

316L stainless steel letters are mirror-polished and PVD-coated in a hard plating 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 champagne, rose gold jewellery, antique copper furnishings and Riviera sunsets.

Available in polished, matte, satin or brushed finishes.

RAL Painted Acrylic

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

RAL numbers and pantones 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 highly complimentary materials sit together harmoniously, 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.

Sites such as fonts.com offer a comprehensive library of fonts which we have access to so please take some time to peruse them and inform us when you have one or two ideas in mind.

If you are unable to find the exact lettering style you have in mind, please contact us and we will be more than happy to discuss your requirements.
