Three more training topics followed, delivered by VTY partner companies representatives: Raymarine electronic devices; Yanmar engines; Shurhold and Starbriteyacht maintenance products. All of these are renowned brands in the Chinese market, installed and used on most yachts, for which VTY has been appointed as local dealer and service point.
Through the training, the captains had the opportunity to know more about Raymarine electronic devices and different models of Yanmar engines. The representatives from both sides also did Q&A about some problems from daily use of the products.
Now it is quite hard for Chinese captains and sailors to be really good at using different devices on-board. But the fact is that the more they exchange opinions, the more experienced they will be. It is a very good chance for them to improve if training like this is provided by VTY regularly.

The captains were invited to watch the process of how to apply the hull anti-fouling paint by spray paint. For most of the captains, it was their first time to experience this kind of technique. During the demonstration, Hulk Huexplained to all the captains the working process of how to spray anti-fouling paint. The paint spray technique used by VTY is different from the traditional roll tachnique. It not only saves time, but also makes the paint more even and smooth. The captains were really impressed by it.
