M/Y Seashaw is a 170.37ft custom motor yacht built by Cheoy Lee in China at their Doumen shipyard and was delivered to her owner in 2003. This luxury vessel’s sophisticated exterior design and engineering are the works of Mulder Design. Previously named Sea Shaw II, her luxurious interior was designed by Dee Robinson Interiors.
In Oct 2018, the owner of Seashaw decided to repaint his yacht with Alexseal. Our technical team immediately got into action and flew in to meet the painters over at Bangkok Dockyard, which is downtown Bangkok, just next to the ChaoPraya river.
Once the logistics was set up, from the spot corrosion repair work, to the filing & fairing along the metal hulls, to the primers and eventually the topcoat, every single detail was covered proficiently.
Jeff Holland from Alexseal USA, who was involved in the original paint scheme back at Cheoy Lee China, was also involved in this project, pouring his years of experience into the team and offering invaluable insights into potential problems that could result if proper work flow processes were not followed.
We wish to thank everyone who helped us achieve this Alexseal milestone for the region of South East Asia. Special mention to our Thailand painter Pongsakon Tongthip for his absolute dedication and hardwork in making this a success. Also the logistics team over at Bangkok Dockyard (1957) Co., Ltd for their labour. Not to forget also the team from Mankiewicz Singapore, Meiching & Marene, who rendered their best assistance always to make sure that all goods were made available to us and always being like family to us.
M/Y Seashaw is now berthed back at her home base at the Republic of Singapore Yacht Club. She is all decked up with the new Matterhorn white, glossy, and is now a pride and joy of the owner, and Singapore.
