Imperial Crimson represents London’s best kept secret - The Regent’s Canal. Offering an oasis of calm amongst the hustle and bustle of city life, this canal features a very attractive waterway which is like stepping into a hidden world. The deep red colour has been curated with the bright and colourful collections of Narrowboats at Little Venice in mind, as well as all of the craft stalls and quirky clothing stores that can be seen as you pass through Camden Market. The canal is named after Prince Regent, so our Imperial Crimson is fittingly a regal red which celebrates the rich royal heritage as well as the vibrant hotspot that it is today.

Our Symphony Narrowboat Paint Gloss is a traditional ultra-high quality high solids coach enamel, achieving a 90% gloss sheen level. It is a high build long oil synthetic paint designed for brush, roller and spray application with a high level of pigmentation. This is the ultimate hardwearing durable finish for your boat coating project, boosting longevity and long-lasting colour retention. The deep colour flattens out to leave a smooth high gloss mirror finish. Also available in a Raddle finish for roofs and flat areas, or an anti-slip for walkways.

Complementary Colour

Pair with Empire Cream and pay tribute to the historical importance of the UK’s canal network. The bright off-white will brighten up the deepness of the red and give a fresh imperial theme.

We recommend two coats of Symphony Narrowboat paint Brush primer and three coats of Symphony Narrowboat Paint Undercoat prior to using this product. Before application of Symphony Narrowboat Topcoat we recommended the surfaces which have been suitably sanded to the correct dry film weight. For machine sanding, we recommend you use sia 1948 S Performance Discs 180 – 320 Grit. For manual sanding, use 6120 sia fleece handpads 180 – 320 Grit.

The surface must be cleaned using a tack cloth to remove all traces of contaminants.
