Looking for a perfect Hull Wrap in the UK : Grapefruit Graphics and MACtac join forces


Aiming at strengthening both companies leadership in boat wrapping and proposing the upmost quality when it comes to boat wrapping to highly demanding boat owners and yards, MACtac and Grapefruit have sealed a partnership that will bring together a recognized yachting industry player based in Southampton with a worldwide leading self-adhesive films manufacturer.


 London, 3rd January 2013 - Chris Martin, Country Manager MACtac UK says:

“MACtac are delighted to have accredited Approved Applicator status to the vastly experienced and highly professional vinyl wrapping team at Grapefruit Graphics.

Grapefruit Graphics skills were clearly shown at London 2012, America’s Cup, and Volvo Ocean races, as well as the Vendee Globe, and increasingly today they wrap hulls as this concept and technique become ever more fashionable.”


Hull wrap with MACtac TuningFilm: An impeccable hull aesthetic solution that may potentially increase the resell value of your boat!

MACtac TuningFilm is the one and only solution to personalize the hull of your boat thanks to a choice of 57 colours and textures to revamp your sailboat or motorboat!


A unique, flexible, quick, cost-effective and durable solution that also protects your boat

Giving a second youth to your boat is no longer an impossible dream. The hull of a 30-foot sailboat, for example, can be completely coloured in just 2 days and at a lower cost than when using paint. You may even consider applying a new texture, e.g. a carbon or brushed aluminium finish (in several versions), which is not possible with paint. TuningFilms last for several years and are resistant to fading, abrasion and UV. They are particularly maintenance-friendly and protect your hull above the waterline, while also being removable. Another significant advantage of boat wrapping with TuningFilm compared with paint: you can revert to the initial hull if you plan on selling your boat.


Andy Yeomans, Director Grapefruit Graphics adds : We have been vinyl wrapping boats for over 10 years but the past 18 months has seen vinyl Hull wraps as an in vogue decision of boat owners.

Most of our Grapefruit team sail or race boats competitively so we are extremely conscience of the Hull finish and quality versus performance.

MACtac high performance TuningFilms and MACtac close support were key decision makers for us having the best interest of the boat owner’s in mind.


This powerful partnership will make it possible to address the growing demand for hull wraps in the UK which is the biggest market in Europe as far as the boat fleet is concerned.
