Greg has learned arguably off some of the most experienced tradesmen in the industry and many that had been in their trade over 40years. I would have no hesitation in recommending Greg and his knowledge on paint systems, spray painting and general repair. More recently I have seen his latest commercial job being the new Wellington East/West electric ferry and the quality of the paintwork was undoubtedly evident both topside and with the newer Coppercoat antifoul of which I to have on our launch. Greg is always enthusiastic with all jobs he tackles.

In my world, trust is everything. In the marine industry, trust is many instances individuals are responsible for the well-being and safety of crews and the protection of valuable marine assets. Greg McDonald is a professional in whom Itrust. He is diligent, experienced in traditional boatbuilding, readily adaptive to technological advancements, thorough, hard-working and 100% dependable.

I have no hesitation in recommending Greg to manage new boatbuilding projects, vessel repairs and maintenance and the application of marine coating systems.

I found Greg to be a particularly hard worker whose work ethic cannot be faulted. He is very well qualified as a boat builder and spray painter and technically competent with a sound understanding of the coatings used. I found him to be flexible and easy to work with. He stuck absolutely to the terms of the quote he gave me.


In my experience I found Greg to be a highly competent tradesman. He demonstrated strong integrity and was straight forward to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending him to any person wanting to use his exceptional talents.
