Farbe & Pflege

Colors, care and interior construction

Fresh paint - our specialty! No other vessel is exposed to the elements of nature, like a is boat in water. Saltwater, algae, and barnacles stress the hull and deck to a great degree. Waves and wind gusts can also cause the jetty to move around, leading to possible scratching and abrasions. At SVB, you will find the right color for your hull, special sealant for cracks in PVC, gentle detergents for combating dirt and grime, as well as the suitable tools for accomplishing these tasks. Our boat builders and color specialists will help you choose the right products in the correct amounts, depending on vessel size, material and sailing area.

Navigation and sea charts

Only a few years ago, paper sea charts were the only reliable navigational aids on board. This was all changed after the arrival and widespread usage of multifunctional devices with built in GPS, AIS, RADAR and electronic sea charts. Of course, traditional paper sea charts cannot be left out on board of any vessel, due to the fact that they simplify the usage of electronic sea chart systems from the vendors: NAVIONICS, C-MAP or BlueChart many times over. In order to help you find the ideal chart for your chart plotter, we have developed the SVB online-sea chart finder.

Safety on board

Your safety is our priority! Because there are no general, statutory safety regulations for the personal use of pleasure crafts and yachts in Germany, we can help you equip your vessel with the necessary safety equipment and materials. Lifejackets, liferafts, first-aid kits, and signaling equipment, among many other items are included on our safety checklist. Within Germany, SVB works together with TNT and Comet, to provide you with the exclusive shipping of pyrotechnics. SVB and our safety experts are also certified service stations for various lifejacket and liferaft manufacturers. Learn more here under the category 'Maintenance' »
