ShrinkMaster’s Managing Director, Chris Ramsey is a qualified boat builder and avid sailor, who spent several years in Europe working on super yachts, where shrink wrap was commonly used during refit and maintenance work.
“All boats require regular maintenance and no matter the size of the vessel it can be expensive to haul them out of the water every time” says Chris
“That’s where shrink wrapping has such an advantage because it can be applied while the boat is still afloat, saving thousands on haul-out and transportation fees”
With New Zealand’s strong marine culture, Chris grasped the opportunity to apply the technology in his home country. Chris understands that his marine clients invest significant amounts of time, money and emotion into their boats and want the highest results often within short timeframes.
“Regardless of the project I want all our clients to expect the best but I do take particular pleasure in getting a boat back on the water as quickly as possible.”
Marine projects taking advantage of ShrinkMaster’s marine wrapping system include:
- Refit of a Royal NZ Navy frigate
- Anti-fouling and modification of super yacht Exuma
ShrinkMaster has used shrink wrap with great success in the marine, construction, transportation and events industries. Its industrial grade shrinkwrap is imported from the US and has a guaranteed lifetime of two years.
“From the outset I have committed to using the highest grade of shrink wrap available and providing an outstanding level of service. With many satisfied clients, I’m confident we’re on the right track.”
