Purple Silk is an exemplary shade of purple, inspired by a well-known chocolate factory along the Worcester & Birmingham Canal in Bournville. Bournville is traditionally renowned for its milk deliveries and its close connection with the Cadbury family, gloating the title of 'one of the nicest places to live in Britain'. The iconic purple is striking and vibrant yet holds a delicate touch of silky elegance.

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


Historically known for being Queen Victoria's favourite colour, Purple has ceremonial and powerful connotations. To keep the finish subtle and not too overwhelming, we recommend pairing with a touch of Black. The achromatic dark shade creates a simplistic contrast with the silky Purple hues. This colour combination is both luxurious and easy on the eye.

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.

Ensure surfaces are dry and smooth to the touch before painting.

A light flatting can be done after the second coat using 6120 sia fleece handpad 320 Grit.
