Oyster Marine was founded in 1973 and has established itself as an international market leader of world-class cruising yachts. With their distinctive Deck Saloon design, Oyster yachts are recognised throughout the sailing world for quality, comfort and performance.
The Oyster range offers plenty of choice in size from the Oyster 475 to the magnificent superyacht the Oyster 115. All these yachts share a common heritage and have been created to provide the best all round combination of performance, comfort and practical seamanlike features.
Owners may choose their preferred joinery timber, interior configuration, detail and fitting out materials for such items as counter tops and soft furnishings, together with a selection of tried and tested optional equipment.
In this way each Oyster yacht can be configured as closely as possible to her owner’s tastes and preferences and be as individual as her owner.
The new Schubert spray shop is a crucial part of making this happen.
The Schubert spray enclosure features centrifugal slow running anti-spark quiet running fan sets for both extraction and providing air input.
The air pressure inside the spray shop is controlled through a PLC pressure differential sensor system. The fans are inverter driven so they can spool up and down to match the correct pressure inside and outside the booth. This means dirt and airbourne contamination is kept out of the booth.
1000 lux skywhite lighting sets ensure that Oyster are able to colour match each piece of production with pre-defined samples. Natural light was not an option with this install, so skywhite lighting is the next best alternative and far superior to standard fluorescent lighting of previous generation spray shops.
The product and personnel doors are sealed with a combination of dense brush strip and rubber gasket seals to keep dust and contamination out.
Andreae High Efficiency spray booth extraction filters mean perfect air flow and separation of wet overspray.
An air input plenum combined with ‘capture and hold’ tack filter across a large surface area ensures clean air is diffused evenly into the spray shop, meaning fewer re-works and better overall quality of the sprayed finish.
Adrian Perrin, Quality Manager at Oyster says “We talked to several suppliers before finally settling with Schuberts.
We found they really understood what we needed and where able to work with us on our future plans to install a Schubox IR drying system alongside the new spray booth.
The installation went without a hitch, which meant minimum down time for us, which was crucial.
So far we are getting great results, the guys are raving about the finish coming out the booth, a big reduction in rework.”
