Dockside: Motor Yacht Vibrant Curiosity

The 85m Oceanco built motor yacht Vibrant Curiosity dry-docked with Babcock in 2016 for underwater hull repairs and preservation, and for inspection of underwater equipment including; propeller shaft and rudders, hull anodes, anchor chains and lockers.

To remove any risk of contaminating the yacht’s topsides and superstructure whilst spraying the required Intersleek 1100SR antifoul coating system, the underwater area was encapsulated using scaffold and shrink-wrap.  The encapsulation, hull repairs and coating preparation and application was completed within a 29 day  dry-dock period.
