Dunedin based Nyalic NZ recently coated their clear coat protection both inside and out of the latest 16m high speed Police catamaran, Stewart Kerlin. Built by Norman R. Wright & Sons in Brisbane, she is powered by triple Hamilton Jets through MTU engines. 

The ‘new’ Stewart Kerlin replaces a previous 11.99m vessel built some years ago at Yamba.

The first police boat built by Norman R. Wright & Sons was in 1935 for the Queensland Water

Police. Since that time, numerous police boats have been built meeting the specific operational requirements of the police service. These include general purpose, patrol, rescue and pursuit police vessels.

Their latest project, the 16 M Stewart Kerlin was given the full Nyalic treatment, which involved the Nyalic coating applied via paint rollers on the topsides and in tight areas and framing, a small HVLP unit was used. This involved 24 quarts of Nyalic .

Nyalic is a very popular produce in New Zealand amongst leading alloy boat builders and is used by many as an option or in some cases a standard finish.
