Shipshape For 2001

Akzo Nobel is shipshape for the 2001 exhibition season following International’s recent success at the Design Awards gala of the Superyacht Society.

Six of the finalists were resplendent in the International brand’s Interspray 900 finish, with a further four sporting coatings from sister company Sikkens.

The success of the International Superyacht System in providing the highest quality paint systems and finishes was further underlined when Lazarra Yachts took the 23-32 meter Powerboat award.

This motoryacht was built in Florida and is finished throughout with Interspray 900. Among the other winners coated with International or Sikkens products were Our Blue Dream, which took the Best Sail 36m+ category, and Lady Marina, a 64m Feadship which won the 43m+ section.

Marine events being attended by International in February include the New Orleans Boat Show, USA, which runs until this Sunday (11).
