It is indeed very close to pure white. I have had an experienced boat repair shop provide me with correctly colored gelcoat ever since they brilliantly repaired damage some years ago.
It comes down to white with a very small amount of yellow (a VERY small amount in 1 liter of gelcoat). Pure white has a sort gray shine to it.

However, more important is the extensive sanding process before (and after) applying the gelcoat, because the usual decoloration of the top of the gelcoat after all these years makes it far from white...
