Fort Lauderdale Boat Detailing – Do I need it?
Keeping your boat or yacht detailed and waxed in Fort Lauderdale is extremely important. Boat detailing, especially in Fort Lauderdale, buff and wax, gelcoat restoration, and routine gelcoat maintenance are essential services to uphold the value of your vessel and prevent oxidation. It is not just about having the best looking boat at the marina (although this is important).
Ask any yacht broker, they will tell you that yachts sell much easier when the gelcoat is perfect as opposed to dull and oxidized with defects. Even boats with superior engines and less hours do not sell easily when the gelcoat is in poor condition.

Gelcoat Restoration, Wet-Sanding, and Intensive Cleaning
Some boats have been sitting under a tree for 10 years and may need some additional care to bring back that factory shine, but we can do it.
When the boat’s surface becomes so faded that you can’t see your reflection and leaves a powdery residue on your hand, it’s time for a complete/full boat detail. The best way to rejuvenate the surface is by using a strong buffing tool and wet-sanding techniques.
Thorough cleaning is vital to get rid of all the stubborn dirt, muck, mold spots, and tough stains. The chemical found in hull cleaners, often called muriatic acid (on & off), is the go-to solution for tough boat messes, especially in Fort Lauderdale where yacht and boat detailing is essential.

Living in sunny South Florida/Fort Lauderdale? With the intense UV rays, your boat might need more than just wax for protection. While wax can be good, it doesn’t last long here. On the other hand, Ceramic Coatings shine for up to 2 years, way longer than regular wax or silicone sealants which fade in just months.
Yes, ceramic coatings might cost a bit more initially, but think about it: you use it far less frequently than wax. After coating, a simple rinse with water and some mild soap once a month keeps your boat looking brand new for years.
