I think there are several talented painters, but doesn't it really come down to how much you are paying them and how much time are you giving them to complete the job. Huge budgets and lots of hours can have spectacular results from any of the mentioned painters.

He's probably my current favorite right now. I like all of the ones mentioned as well.

Steve at Skater did a fantastic job for my tastes on my boat.

Is that who painted your 4300. Looks sharp with the exterior and interior. Not a typical color that you see.

No...Paul from Nor-tech painted my 43..He did a beautiful job and the price that was paid was extremely fair. I kept everything in house this time and it went super smooth as well as fast. Paul also painted the new 40 roadster cat as well as the 50 Gold Rush cat at the Miami show..the man has talant, and is easy to deal with. Would I have him paint my next boat.......yes...

There is a guy by the name of Graham Batting....he was the in-house painter for Outerlimits. When they went to Taod, he started his own shop and began to do big ocean racing sailboats......if you have ever seen the Puma boat that is going around the world right now.....this guy is as good as they get.
