Pinmar chose Savannah Yacht Center as one of its strategic partners in the USA and has invested in the new development of a permanent on-site facility with a full paint cabin, workshop and offices. Pinmar's key partnership with SYC, and the yards capability to haul out large yachts to be painted on the “hard”, provides a unique advantage over in-water painting facilities.
