Waxing Boats

We recommend waxing your boat 3 times a year.

Not only does waxing make your boat look great, but it protects your boat from the harmful UV rays that break down the resins and cause a dull, “chalky” finish. If this occurs then you will need to use a compound and wax on the boat.

You can choose to get a complete wax, covering the whole boat, or just the hull or topside waxes. Hull waxes are ideal if you have a darker colored hull, as they will fade faster and require more attention. Interiors and bilge cleaning is billed separately.

When we wax your boat, we will first wash and chamois dry entire boat. The crew will then use a cleaner wax to remove any stains and light oxidation, followed by a carnauba wax to protect the surface and keep it looking good. We will also use a protective wax on all of the metal surfaces, clean any vinyl cushions, as well as clear plastic enclosures such as isenglass, strataglass, etc. Any exterior carpets will be vacuumed. The interior is not included in the complete wax, but can be cleaned during our visit for an additional charge.

If you have a special request for your vessel, please let us know during the scheduling process and we will do our best to make sure your needs are met. For any and all services, if scheduling conflicts arise, please contact us immediately and inform us so that we can appropriately manage the calendar. In the event that a conflict arises on our end, we will reach you as soon as possible to resolve the issue and work with your schedule. Your time is very important to us and we are flexible with scheduling services.
