How much does it cost to have a boat repainted?
The professional topside painting will cost you $100 to $400 per linear foot. However, the average price is often $200 to $250 per linear foot for an undamaged boat, particularly when choosing low-quality paint. For instance, you need to set aside $4,000 to $5,000 for an average 20 feet (6 m) long vessel on average.
How do you paint a narrowboat?
Remove flaky paint and dirt by lightly abrading and degreasing. Rusty areas should be sanded back to bare steel and primed with a suitable primer to applying your topcoat. Make sure that adjoining paint edges are sanded very smooth to avoid any ridges in the finish.
