painting Galvanized steel boat

So it's paint time. I have a 12 meter caroff with a Galvanized hull. Presntly she is coated in hemple hempatex 46410. Which is basically a single pack shipping container paint. I would like to get some more but i am struggling, I'm in the Canaries and they will only sell it in huge amounts. Anyone got any suggestions of another paint I can use. I would like to topcoat it as well...i'm thinking of just using hammerite!

Try Ameron? They have a full line of 2 part paints. Also we are now experimenting with a Pettit One part aluminum paint. No results yet.

I haven't had good luck with getting anything to stick to galvanized steel on a regular basis.
