It all begins with an inspiration. Each owners vision is taken into careful consideration prior to the name design process commencing. Each name design project is custom tailored based on feedback from each client and is ultimately a reflection of the owners' personality and taste. Each Everett Nautical project is custom designed by our team of artists from beginning to end. Everett Nautical takes great pride that no two name designs are the same, please visit our artwork and lettering gallery to fuel your vision.
Beautiful & luxurious, faux teak out performs traditional varnished teak and is environmentally sustainable. Everett Nautical offers the highest quality faux teak painting in the industry. We pride ourselves on the most authentic colors & variation of refined wood grain patterns. Each board is painted by hand. We can adapt to special requests such as highly figured grain patterns & color matching.
Hand painted transom lettering has a rich heritage alongside boat building. We are excited & committed to preserving the techniques of old, while combining them with today's latest technology and materials, ensuring each piece is a true, original masterpiece. Painting premium transom names requires ongoing research & development in technique & process innovation. Everett Nautical Designs uses only the finest quality materials, enabling us to achieve world class results.
Applied by hand, gold leaf has a strong connection to maritime history. The tradition of gold leaf has carried its classic beauty throughout history, standing as an elegant symbol of prosperity. Everett Nautical uses multiple guilding techniques such as - engine turned, prismatic, outlining, & accents. Radiant and reflective, the unmatched luster of gold leaf naturally fuses with our faux teak designs.
