Boating magazines rate COELAN Boat Coating as the world’s most effective, durable varnish. Short-term and long-term marine industry testing by shipping companies and by ship and yacht manufacturers has confirmed COELAN to be a long-lasting and robust product with exceptional characteristics. Wood finishing tests, working close to manufacturer’s recommendations, like those hosted by Classic Boat Magazine, tested COELAN Boat Paint over many years and compared it with many wood finishing products under different conditions. The first tests were carried out in a test area in the UK. Other tests continued under harsh tropical ocean conditions. Class Boat Magazine found that COELAN Boat Coating weathered well over the years, remaining totally intact, and maintaining an impressive degree of gloss and translucency after several years.

Long-term testing by Classic Boat Magazine reported that while a number of competitors’ products required renewal after 2 years, COELAN retained its integrity after 7 ½ years of continuous exposure.

COELAN is widely employed by boat builders and much appreciated by private boat owners. Premier blue water sailing yacht manufacturers such as Finland’s Oy Nautor AB, famous for its Nautor’s Swan line of fiberglass yachts, and Sweden’s Hallberg-Rassey value COELAN for its outstanding quality and long-term performance. Over the years, use of COELAN Marine Coatings on heavily exposed vessels such as commercial ships, cruise liners, and luxury charter yachts can yield significant savings in terms of maintenance and materials, factors that also contribute to making COELAN an environmentally friendly product.
