ACA Marine

Founded in 1997, ACA MARINE specializes in fairing & painting of luxury yachts from 15m to 130m. ACA MARINE is based on the Atlantic coast of France in La Rochelle, but has teams working both in the South of France and in the rest of Europe (e.g. UK, Holland).


One of the world's leading paint and gel coat care companies that prolong the life and enhance the appearance of painted surfaces. Particularly effective on polyurethane top coats. Their permanent coating prevents the oxidation and fading color intensity of paint and gel coat and protects from harmful UV, acid rain and industrial pollutants. Once the dull looking areas are repaired and painted, Permagard can be applied by their technicians for a glossy and shiny look. Permagard technicians are available from worldwide to apply their products.
