CNB in France constructed SPIIP in 2009 out of aluminium. Touch of Gloss was contracted by CNB to undertake extensive warrenty work on their behalf . TOG's vast experience & reputation in the preparation and painting of aluminum substrates was the catalyst for this to happen while the boat was in New Zealand over the summer of 2011/12. 

Although only 3 years young, Spiip had extensive corrosion related problems wth the paint coatings. These were primarily around the hull windows and fittings. TOG remove the coatings back to bare aluminum, applied a new clean profile by abrasive blasting and started with new primers before filling and faring was undertaken. 

The hull stripes were also altered to provide a better balance to the asthetics of the yacht.
