Professional Boat Detailing in Fort Lauderdale, FL | Yacht Detailing
Keeping your boat or yacht detailed and waxed in Fort Lauderdale is extremely important. Boat detailing, 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.

You can see on the left how oxidized this boat was. This comes from years of neglecting to wax the yacht. Gelcoat has to be maintained and waxed at least 3 times per year or you will have significant oxidation.
The particular boat above took extreme measures to bring back the original shine. We had to wet sand and remove quite a bit of the gelcoat to expose that beautiful shiny blue gelcoat underneath. If you keep your boat or yacht on a consistent detailing schedule you will be in good shape!
Use a company that knows what they are doing, or you will be left with swirl marks all over the boat. A good buff & wax is not as easy as it sounds, and it certainly should not be left up to amateurs.

Chances are, your boat or yacht was built with gelcoat in the factory, or possibly the exterior was painted with something like Awlgrip. Either way, you have to protect and clean the exterior routinely for optimum upkeep.
We like to give the example of thinking about the boat gelcoat as skin. If you do not apply sunscreen (wax), the gelcoat will oxidize and deteriorate. Trust me, it is much cheaper to apply wax and protectants in the beginning than buff out oxidation and defects later.
