About us

Wrede Consulting, founded in 1999 by the CEO Kay Wrede, is your coating consultant for super- and megayachts.

Kay Wrede grew up around ships and started to acquire practical shipbuilding experience from an early age. He began by doing odd jobs for his father in the family shipyard when he was 5 years old. „I was always fascinated by ships, the construction and all the different parts that go into them.”

When he took over the shipyard as a grown-up, he realized that there was no technology available to measure the quality of surfaces – which is how the idea of „Wrede Consulting“ was born.

A superyacht newbuild or refit is a huge investment. Therefore it’s important for the owner to be aware of e the quality of the paint. Wrede Consulting has established a system which measures the finish of top coated surfaces. This turns the process from a subjective assessment into an objective, measurable evaluation that allows all parties to be aware of the quality.

Today, the company has successfully supported over 150 projects worldwide including the most prestigious and largest yachts in the world.
Everyone at Wrede Consulting, starting at Surveyor level and progressing to Inspector & Consultant, works with the same unique and recognizable mindset and quality standards.

We are your experts with over 20 years of experience in the superyacht segment, so we can offer special, tailor-made packages and structures to ensure your topcoat is near perfect. We always aim to have the highest quality and newest state-of-the-art technology. We strive every day to develop and implement innovations to be the preferred choice for all our partners.
