We specialise in Yacht refurbishment, maintenance, fiber glass and painting. We are known for being efficient, professional and friendly.

        Where Are We
      We are based in Portimão , but we service yachts all along the Algarve coast and beyond. Our office is based before the 'old bridge' of Portimão in the middle of the fishing port Doca Pesca. We do of course deliver or collect yachts outside this area. Consult the contact section of our site to view a map and more specific directions.

        Boat Surveys
      Although our yacht repair and marine engineering business is based in Portimão , we undertake yacht maintenance, repair and installation projects on the Algarve coast from Lagos and Portimao to Olhao V.Real de Santo Antonio. From our Portimao base we can travel east of Portimao and West of Lagos for larger yacht repair projects. If your project is outside the Portimao area, contact us for an assessment.


Our Featured Work Yacht Repairs

GELCOAT-Gelcoat scratches and chips in a fibreglass boat are a fact of life, however, there comes a time when even the most hardened boat abuser starts to think about fixing things up a bit. Extensive spiderweb cracks, chunks of missing gel or wear through to the glass laminate are worth taking a look at.

The basic procedure for making repairs is surface preparation, gelcoat application, sanding and finishing.

Our Services

Slick Hull provide a professional service for all types of yacht repairs across the Algarve, from small GRP repairs to full refits.


We at Slick Hull start with washing of the top sides to remove all surface grit with special wax eco safe soap, this removes all possible the service marks and scuffs then the hull is wiped dry. Once dry we then protect your hull against the elements, we apply a high-quality glaze with a high content in Carnauba waxes. After this we gently polish the paintwork or gelcoat with the finest grade of polish, this will give the surface of the hull an enhanced reflection, with a high gloss finish to be proud of.


We have a dedicated team specialising in the application of paint and varnish to a high standard, we are a centre of excellence for this kind of work to all type’s timber and GRP. We undertake a variety of coating methods, including spraying and hand brushing only using Marine industry-approved paints and varnishes to provide the best possible finish on your yacht.


Slick Hull have an experienced section to asses the condition of your vessel, it can be reassuring to know the condition of your hull, if this is your requirement contact our office. We will undertake a detailed examination of main areas on the hull using the state-of-the-art Sovereign Quantum moisture meter with all area recorded. This meter will check for moisture content in or near the surface of the laminate. It then measures further into the substrate up to a depth of 300mm. This gives the technician a very clear indication of the condition of the hull.
