Ocean Refit complete the re-fairing and painting of 1930’s yacht DORADE

This beautiful Olin Stephens classic has gained considerable fame over her many years of regatta racing with great success including winning the 2013 TRANSPAC race. This hard campaigning inevitably took its toll on Dorade and the topsides were faded with plank edges and caulk seams showing.

Sanding with longboards in the heat of the Mediterranean August is no easy task, but our team got stuck in and left a re-faired yacht ready for a high-gloss finish with gold-leaf cove stripe to add the finishing touch. Dorade was faired, painted and ready to go again in a quick 3 week turnaround.
