For more than 2 years, Suna Yachting has been a leading boat construction company in Fethiye Karagözler area accommodated in 4395 sq. meter shipyard. In our shipyard, an around the clock workforce put muscle behind our promise of fast, reliable boat construction.
We have produced a wide variety of wooden boats ranging between 12. 50 meters, manufacturing workshop, a carpentary and instrument installation workshop and a painting- varnishing workshop constitute the 1248 sq. meter closed yard.
A Boat is built within 6 to 12 months considering the size of the boat. Construction takes place in our shipyard which is donated with latest technology throughout the year. Also, in winter, boat building continues in our indoor shipyard.
Our major materials are Saphelli, Mahogany, Teak, Marine Plywood, Iroko, Oak and Akaju Mahogany as wood; Polyurethane contained glue for sticking operation and chrome screws and galvanised nails as connection elements.
For over tens of years the deck, the veneers, the furniture even the keel of a boat are subject to chemical reactions and physical forces. Due to these outside forces certain above mentioned parts of a boat can be renewed or changed at different times. This way the boat will be kept standing safe and healthy.
Wood Care And Repair
If we can not protect our boat against outside forces, damages can happen that will cost much to fix and the boat will be unusable.
The botom of a ship must be cleaned and treated so that the boat floats freely and wood worm attack can be prevented. The wood which is to be used for boat repair must be dried and have 15% humidity in it. Timber like Teak, Iroco, Makore, Afrormosia are exotic type 1st class wood and have long life (Life expectancy over 25 years) Generally all kinds of wood with needle type pointy leafs should not be used where they are openly exposed to heavy loads and water.
Putty And Repair
Before repainting a surface, the old paint should be scraped-off and and cleaned well. Prior to primer paint putty filler must be applied and then sanded and then 1st layer of paint and if needed putty filler and primer should be applied again before second layer of paint. The antifouling paint which will be applied to the outside botom of your boat will prevent the sticking of foulings like sea-weeds mussels and other naturel foulings. The hull will be applied with epoxy putty. Also the hull will be covered with epoxy fiber from the outside and epoxy varnish from the inside.
All procedures that are needed to give life to wood. Will be made according to its place and delivered.
All furnitures (cupboards, counters, beds) are made of TSE and Lloyds standard marine Ply-wood the surfaces according to demand are veneered with mahogany, rose or cherry wood and varnished with yacht varnish. 10mm Sponge sheats are cut out and covered with waterproof durable fabrics in the making of Seat cushions, mats and bed matresses. Wet surfacesare covered with epoxy varnish which provide insulation against water.
