Big Bulwarks


As in 1952 at her launch, Yves has varnished bulwarks. A bulwark is the wood that runs around the top of the hull and takes it above the level of the deck. This varnished wood gives her a heavy look at deck level and the varnish is quite high maintenance, especially once we get to the Mediterranean sun and high UV levels.

To improve her classic looks and to reduce the varnish maintenance, we took a decision today to have the bulwarks painted the same colour as the hull, white. The capping and inside of the bulwarks will remain varnished.

We hope this will improve her already fine lines, fingers crossed…
