Strong Management for Smooth Paint Jobs

Specter helps you avoid the pitfalls associated with yacht paint.

By adding Specter to a paint project, the chances of a satisfactory outcome are greatly increased. Planning a paint job? Talk to us first.


We prefer to look further afield and intercept issues before they occur. It beats policing the paint contractor, a counter-productive work method that is still the norm in the paint consultancy field.
