The beautiful 59-metre M/Y Seawolf boasts the utmost in luxurious accommodation, advanced tenders and a world-class crew with unbounded expertise in expedition yachting. For those seeking to explore some of the world’s most awe-inspiring sites, she is Antarctica-bound later this year.
The team at The Detail Studio Singapore and ST & T Services in Singapore were engaged to prepare for her icy cold journey through Antarctica.
As the Seawolf was not dry docked, the team had to plan through rainy days, time management and ensure that all hands were on deck!
ecocoat marine, an anti-fouling ceramic coating developed specifically for high UV, salt and water immersion resistance was used to protect the Seawolf from the harsh weathers and the prevention of microorganisms attaching.
ecocoat marine is synthesised using nanotechnology to ensure adherence and crosslinking to the gelcoat, polyurethane, acrylic paint and other anti-fouling paint.
“ecocoat marine and the IGL Coatings products are easy to apply and is easy to work with. This contributes greatly to the efficiency of the team, reducing downtime and additional costs on manpower required” said Azhari Adlan, director of The Detail Studio Singapore.

“ST&T, our principal partner in the marine industry, were assigned to paint some portions of the Seawolf. We introduced ecocoat marine to the captain and crew, explaining how it provides surface protection and easy maintenance. Convinced, the exterior hull above sea level is protected with ecocoat marine” he continued.
Unlike conventional anti-fouling solutions which contain hazardous materials that leech into the seas, ecocoat marine is a tried and tested marine coating which is REACH compliant. ecocoat marine does not contain banned hazardous materials such as zinc and plumbum, safer to marine life and the environment. ecocoat marine is becoming the preferred choice in marine protection as more countries enforce the ban against the use of copper in anti-fouling paints.
