UMT Ramps Up Stainless Steel Yacht Repairs

Press Release
Sunday, December 23, 2012

UMT International creates new division in response to damage caused by major storms creating higher demand for stainless steel repairs on yachts.

Hurrican Sandy caused unimaginable damage to many boats and has created a huge demand for stainless steel repair work. Stainless steel yacht railings in particular were vulnerable to these unexpected weather events. UMT International has responded by creating a new division that will only concentrate on repairing damaged stainless steel.

During a severe storm event, rub rails, hoop rails, gates, stainless arches and general stainless railings are often bent and damaged severely. UMT technicians have over 20 years experience in the assessment and repair of damaged stainless goods.

Stainless steel anchor pockets and stainless steel anchor rollers are also commonly damaged through accidental usage and storm activity, in addition to general wear and tear. UMT can remove and completely refurbish, straighten and re-polish both anchor pockets and anchor rollers to bring them back to their nearly new condition. The same service is often performed on damaged anchors.

UMT stainless specialists can travel and do repairs both on the vessel itself or dismantle and perform the complete stainless steel repairs in their Fort Lauderdale facility.
