Professional Boat Detailing in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Boat detailing is an essential service to uphold the value of your vessel. It is not just about aesthetics. Chances are, your boat was either built with gelcoat all over the exterior or they sprayed it with 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.
Fort Lauderdale Boat Detailing & Yacht Management, Buff & Wax, Polish, Marine Wax Glaze & Sealants
Detailing is arguably one of the most important maintenance practices to keep up. You don't want to deal with major oxidation and dull gelcoat after even a few months without wax or sealants.
Ask any yacht broker, they will tell you that boats sell much easier when they look clean and shiny as opposed to oxidized with defects. Even boats with superior engines and less hours, they don't sell easily when the exterior is in poor condition.
We have been offering full boat detail services in Fort Lauderdale for over a decade, and we have dealt with every size boat imaginable. Give us a call for any boat detailing needs.

- How large is your vessel and when was it painted last?

- How long has it been since you took it all the way to fiberglass and applied a new barrier coat?
- What brand and type of paint was used last time?
- It may not be compatible with a new paint, so we have to find out what was used, or we will have to sand it all the way down.
