Founded in 1989 and headquartered in Palma de Mallorca, Rolling Stock has been providing the very highest quality yacht painting finishes around the world for the past 27 years.
With our highly skilled workforce and experienced management team we target superyachts irrespective of their size in both the repainting of existing yachts and filling and fairing new builds, with a reputation for specialising in the large sailing fleet and metallic finishes.
With a global reach, we pride ourselves on a highly technical and hands on approach giving our clients a personalised service no matter the size or location of the project. With our creativity and innovation we are always at the forefront of new technology and cutting edge techniques ensuring yachts are delivered on time and to the highest quality which is reflected in the significant volume of repeat business.
We invite you to look around this new website we have launched in conjunction with the rebranding of the company to show the industry how committed we are to our clients and to continue the success we have achieved so far, as well as giving the business a fresh new look.
Our new approach to certain areas of the business and in particular to yachts that only require repairs, touch ups and partial repaints is to create an “exclusive” team, improving the quality of service for these types of works while we continue to grow our large yacht refinishing and new build business both in Spain and abroad.

The M.Y JO hull was painted by Rolling Stock. Their team of experts, led by the pragmatic Manu Ayme and David Escobar, achieved the best finish that JO has had.
A truly excellent service! The finished product totally lived up to expectation, exceeded expectation and was on schedule. Very pleased with the work!
