You could get it powder coated?

Or you could polish it back to a nice shiny finish.

Or you could go to B&Q and buy a tin of International's satin black. If you need larger quantities, get one tin of gloss and one of matt and mix em.
It is paint so it'll wear through if something rubs on it eg. A mooring line.

Repolishing it is probably a better idea-even powder coating comes off without much use.

Yeh but don't underestimate paint. All my stainless is painted with satin black. It's been there for more than four years and much of it is actually in the sea. It's not needed a repaint yet. Preparation was a good wipe down with thinners and then no handling before the paint went on.

That's quite impressive.

If you key the stainless by taking off the shine with some wire wool or course sandpaper that would help the paint stick.
