A Touch of Flexiteek!

Congrats to the Flexiteek Americas [FAM] team in Pompano Beach for their great work on the recent installation aboard M/Y Touch! As our readers and clients know, SYS is an authorized distributor of Flexiteek and we were proud to assist the FAM team with this significant project.

M/Y Touch is a 125-foot Canadian-flagged, custom built yacht. According to Flexiteek Americas CEO, Tom Jacques, Flexiteek was originally installed throughout the vessel in 2003.  Unfortunately, the underlying deck had some drainage and corrosion issues over the years and the Flexiteek had to removed recently to address same.

During our original meeting with the yacht's captain, Capt. Andrew Law, he told us the owners of the vessel looked at other available decking options and decided to come back to Flexiteek, not only because it performed so well over the course of eight years, but also because of the comparative superior quality of the product. Needless to say, we agree with their decision; after all, Flexiteek owns the patent.

So, after all the decks were completely stripped and re-surfaced at Lauderdale Marine Center in Fort Lauderdale, our Flexiteek team stepped in, crafting and installing over 2,300 square feet of decking. We also consulted with the yacht's captain and other sub-contractors in an attempt to address level and fairing details on deck prior to installation, with a view to helping them avoid issues caused by imperfect underlying substrates. And now, Touch is undergoing a complete paint job and will soon be ready for the upcoming season, with new, beautiful Flexiteek decks!

You can see some of the before, during, and after pictures above. Another job well done, FAM!
