Getting a buff and wax is not just about having the best looking yacht in the marina (although this is important). Keeping tabs on your gelcoat is essential to upholding the value of your boat.
Think of the gelcoat like skin that sits in the sun all day. If you don't put sunscreen on (wax), it will oxidize and deteriorate. Especially in South Florida! We have the team to handle any boat detailing job in South Florida and Miami.
