Using High-Tech to Track Down Coating Damage

However, imperfections on the outer coating are often blamed on the wrong causes. The consequence is expensive and unnecessary repair processes that do not provide a long-term solution to the problem. It's then only a matter of time before the damage reappears. WREDE Technology (WRETEC) is specialised in precisely... More

Superyacht Refit/Repair Contracts - Stopping the ROT

Retention of title (or “ROT”) clauses are designed to operate so that, if a buyer does not pay for the goods it receives, then it has to return them.
