BVI Painters was started in 1984 by Eldred Williams who had already been working in the refinishing industry for several years.
His training, including time with some of the premier craftsmen at US Paint, the company which continues to develop AWLGRIP, ensured that his new company would be able to attract the best vessels in the area. Sure enough, as well as working on some of the outstanding local boats, including Wanderlust and Crazy Horse, Eldred’s company was soon a beacon calling to the cruising world too. The list of boats is enormous since BVI Painters has been in operation now for well over 30 years, but some of the more familiar names are Sabore, 71ft Unfurled, Wildflower, Crazy Horse and Zenyatta.
BVI Painters not only covers all external brightwork, and refinishing but since the addition of the fiberglass division in the early 90’s we can also handle structural work deal with major damage repairs. This was especially highlighted in the 90’s when the spate of hurricanes hit this part of the Caribbean causing havoc in the industry.
Interiors are also a specialty since Eldred’s knowledge of both AWLGrip and varnish help ensure a true “Yacht” quality finish to cabin soles, bathrooms, salons and bedrooms.
