Scout Boats’ much-anticipated 530 LXF, the company’s newest 53-foot luxury sportfishing flagship, requires a larger paint booth to accommodate painting such a large boat. To safely and efficiently accomplish this task, Scout Boats purchased a 75-foot Large Equipment Paint Booth from GFS. The design of the paint booth actually enables the boats to cure faster, which is a big benefit for the business.
Problem Solved — Large Equipment Paint Booth Provides Quality Control and Quicker Lead Times for Sectional Barges
With in-house services including plasma cutting, bending, welding and blasting, Poseidon Barge recently also brought painting services to their Berne, Indiana, location. The addition of a new 60-foot Large Equipment Paint Booth has allowed the company to open another revenue stream, as well as better control product quality and cost.
In December 2010, construction began on a 14-month project to build a new 60,000 sq. ft. facility for Diversified Yacht Services (DYS) in Ft. Myers, Florida. Diversified Yacht offers comprehensive services for luxury yachts of all sizes. Services range from mechanical, plumbing and electrical, to refinishing and detailing. The project included two buildings — a state-of-the-art marina and a service center. Also included was a fully enclosed paint booth, large enough to service boats up to 68-feet-long for complete paint and refinishing.
