Vinyl wrapping & Graphics

Looking to change the colour scheme and add graphics on our Phantom 20 (red devil) only need to change the sides and top deck, the hull is fine.

Anybody any experience with vinyl wrapping ?

Will it stay on

Cost for graphic design

Cost to have the vinyl applied

Jason

My boat is vinyl wrapped completely from the chines upward.

Cost of the vinyl is around £25 per metre on an 1100 wide roll I believe. Cost of application I have no idea about as my brother is a signwriter and his work sponsor us! It's around 12 hours work I'd say to do a full boat (except the running surface) if you start with a good clean base. Ideally shiny smooth paint or polished gelcoat. My boat was just primer, so there was dozens of hours prep work sanding it back to 600 grit. The wrap sticks great to that, but it has to be 100% clean and dust free. We pressure cleaned it and tack-clothed it twice!

As for the durability, make sure the wrap is washed and rinsed with fresh water after every run out and it will be fine for a good few years. It does scuff fairly easily so be careful with un-lined covers and fenders etc. We painted a small strip of clear laquer over every joint (the joints are overlapped around an inch too) to stop water creeping under and peeling it, which works really well.

We used Hexis cast vinyl which comes in tons of colours and is pretty much the best in the industry I think, if you find a good sign writer they can digitally print onto white vinyl and you can literally have whatever you want on there, but obviously that's more expensive and you may have troubles down the road with fading due to UV exposure.

Hope that helps

Thanks Paul

Good to hear that it has been done and is still on your boat, our paintwork is full of bubbles and chips so we will sand it back and have a go with a vinyl wrap, just on sides/top deck

Will wrapp cover a different base colour ? Our boat is all red and would like to use some white with graphics

Yes it's completely opaque and will cover any base colour. If your paint is chipped I'd suggest touching it in and wet sanding / polishing back to a good finish before the wrap
