A classy painted boat name on a wood transom. The transom should be varnished again after the name is applied. If the varnish is kept up yearly, the painted boat name will last...
Who needs a hand-painted boat name?
Back in the day it was all brush lettering at marinas. We only made painted boat names, even on fiberglass hulls. Paint was the only way to go. That was before vinyl was available. Now vinyl or gold leaf film is the preferred materials for use on fiberglass boats and yacht. However there is still the need for hand-painted boat lettering.
Often we come across wooden hulls on classic speedboats and luxury wooden yachts. These older wooden vessels require the use of paint and brush. Once the transom is painted, additional coats of varnish can be applied to protect the lettering.
How we do it!
First we provide our customers with a custom font portfolio for review, and once a font has been selected we provide a scale drawing or mock photo of the transom for final review. After final approval we prepare a pounce pattern.
The pounce pattern is taped in place onto the wooden hull and then a charcoal bag is used to apply the pattern to the hull. The letters or your custom hand-painted boat name are then applied to the boat by hand. Shadoes and/or outlines are applied after, also by hand with a brush.
