Today Sea Hawk, the world’s leading premium nautical coating brand, announced the release of a documentary highlighting a joint project with renowned Newport Shipyard on coating the hull of sailing superyacht Adix with Sea Hawk antifouling paint. After completing the hull recoating at breakneck speed, in under ten days, Adix, the three-masted classic styled monohulled yacht, was launched with a fresh coating of Sea Hawk Biocop TF advanced dual-biocide antifouling paint. Titled The Adix, A Sea Hawk Story, the documentary gives viewers the sense of passion the boat’s owner and his long-time skipper, Captain Paul Goss have for their luxury superyacht and their quest to continuously enhance its performance, which is why the Sea Hawk antifouling was applied.
“We’re here, to get the antifouling sorted out,” said boat Captain Paul Goss. “We came here relying on Newport Shipyard’s expertise, and they said Sea Hawk is the one we’ve been using successfully for a long time,” Captain Goss added.
“As a family company, we’ve worked hard over the past three decades to produce the finest antifouling systems in the world,” said Erik Norrie, Sea Hawk’s CEO. “To be part of an iconic yacht (like Adix) that embodies the timeless tradition of sailing is really something special,” Norrie added.
Adix is one of the world’s largest sailing superyachts built in modern times. It was architected and designed by Arthur Holgate and built by Astilleros de Mallorca in 1984. At 64.86 meters with a 8.66 meter beam, Adix displaces 370 tons, cruises at 10kts with a top speed of 12kts and houses 10 guests and a crew of 14.
