To date, all projects have been completed within budget and constantly meet extremely tough megayacht industry standards without a problem. Over the past 7 years, General Coating have been working for us, there has not once been a single claim or warranty situation for which they were responsible. We can highly recommend their services, and we will continue to use them.
