The Valhalla V-37, a true masterpiece of maritime engineering, required the best in hull protection. Norseman Shipyards, known for its commitment to quality, faced a common challenge: epoxy hull coatings falling short in durability. This case study reveals why they made the switch to Hull Pro, and how this decision revolutionized hull protection for the Valhalla V-37.

WHY CHOOSE HULL PRO OVER OTHER EPOXY HULL COATINGS?

Epoxy hull coatings have long been used to protect boats. However, they often struggle to withstand the rigors of the open water. For the Valhalla V-37, the softness of other coatings led to multiple touch-ups post-application. Transporting the boat by trailer became an ordeal. It was clear that a more robust solution was needed. Hull Pro emerged as the natural choice for Norseman Shipyards. Here are the key reasons that made Hull Pro the preferred option:

  • EXCEPTIONAL DURABILITY

    Hull Pro is engineered to last. Its robust protective layer ensures longevity, won’t chip off in a single season or when the vessel is being transported on a trailer or with lifts, and reduces the need for frequent touch-ups.

    EXTENDED PERFORMANCE

    Hull Pro's durability translates into long-lasting protection. The Valhalla V-37 now enjoys enhanced performance and protection without the headaches of constant upkeep.

  • EASE OF APPLICATION

    One of the standout features of Hull Pro is its ease of application. Unlike other coatings that demand respirators and extensive personal protective equipment (PPE), Hull Pro simplifies the process! Check out our Application Guide for tips on applying over gelcoat.

    COST-EFFICIENCY

    Beyond its remarkable protective properties, Hull Pro offers cost-efficiency. Its extended lifespan and reduced maintenance requirements mean fewer expenses in the long run, making it a smart investment for boat owners.

We’ve compared the benefits of Hull Pro to other traditional bottom paints. Check out our comparison below.

easier to apply than other traditional bottom paints

Hull Pro’s application process was simple, straightforward for applicators to learn, and easy to apply. Simply mix both parts in the container it comes in, allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes, then roll on, and tip to smooth.

The Norseman team found it much easier to apply than traditional bottom paints. There’s no need for crazy respirators and PPE. Just put on some gloves, and some goggles (safety first!) and get started!

Hull Pro is odor free, is non-ablative, and doesn’t require a primer when being applied over bare gelcoat. You don’t need to sand down your vessel, either.

Mix and apply according to our application guide and you’ll be set. We even recommend our favorite, tried and true-tested tools for you to get a smooth, high-gloss finish.

the results: a resilient valhalla v-37

With Hull Pro in place, the Valhalla V-37's hull not only retains its stunning appearance but also showcases unparalleled strength. It can now be transported by trailer without worry, and its performance on the water is optimized.

This project demonstrates the transformative power of Hull Pro, elevating hull protection to a new standard. Whether you're gliding through the open waters or embarking on a long voyage, Hull Pro ensures your vessel remains in pristine condition.
