Pinmar announces new exclusive distribution agreement with Protec Marine in the USA


Pinmar, part of GYG Ltd, the world’s leading superyacht service and supply group, and Protec Marine, a division of the world’s largest specialist supplier of flame-retardant temporary protection materials for the Navy, cruise ships, commercial ships and superyachts, are delighted to announce an exclusive distribution agreement for Protec Marine in the USA for the superyacht market.

Protec Marine flame-retardant products are widely used by superyacht shipyards across the globe to protect expensive finishes and fittings during new build, refurbishment, maintenance, and repair projects. Their products can be seen on vessels worldwide protecting exterior decks, windows, stairs, handrails, interior floors, walls and carpets. If a suitable temporary protection product doesn’t exist for your specific requirements, they’ll develop a protection solution to meet your needs.

Building on the long-term success of their Pinmar Yacht Supply brand as the exclusive Spanish distributor of Protec Marine products for superyachts, Pinmar are well positioned to introduce the range of specialized temporary protection products to the US market through their established bases in key superyacht refit shipyards in Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Florida and Savannah, Georgia in collaboration with Safe Harbor Marinas.

Commenting on the announcement, Remy Millott GYG CEO said “We have extensive first-hand experience using the Protec Marine range of products across our Pinmar projects in Europe and have seen high demand across the wider marine industry through our existing distribution partnership. We are delighted to introduce Protec Marine to the US market bringing the proven benefits to the superyacht segment.”

Albert Luescher, International Sales Manager at Protec Marine, added “We are excited at the prospect of this new chapter in our successful history together with Pinmar. Our two companies, together with Safe Harbor, will be well positioned to support the superyacht segment in the USA, to the same level we have accomplished in Europe.”
