topside Cleaning & Detailing
It’s critical to keeping your boat’s exterior clean for several reasons, in addition to showcasing its beauty. Keeping your boat clean protects the structure of the boat by keeping the protective finish intact. Over time, the salt from the sea can begin to erode, causing abrasions and scratches which are expensive to remedy. Keeping a clean boat, particularly the hull bottom makes for better performance. A dirty underwater hull bottom can increase fuel costs by as much as 30%.
We will pressure wash, wax, vacuum, clean hatches, clean gutter tracks & nonskid (or carpet). We also address vinyl by cleaning with an appropriate cleaner & coat with UV protectant. We polish brightwork, and clean windows inside and out.
The bottom of most sailboats, yachts and powerboats are sealed with anti-fouling paint, which helps to slow the growth of underwater organisms like algae, tubeworms, and barnacles. Unfortunately, the special paint doesn’t completely prevent organisms from attaching to the hull of a boat. The first growth when a newly painted boat is put into the water, is a sticky film of microbials. We offer professional bottom cleaning to address these common problem. This can be done with the boat out of water in a boatyard, or with pro divers while the boat remains in the marina water. We will clean your sailboat, power boat or yacht professionally, but will also report to you any issues we find, that you cannot see for yourself while to boat is in the water. Here’s our boat bottom cleaning program we follow:
