FAQ's About Polishing and Waxing

Explore Answers to Your Questions

How often do you need to polish and wax a boat?

If your boat is stored under cover, clean and maintain it up to twice a year. For boats kept in the water and exposed to the elements continuously, aim for 3 to 4 times a year, depending on the boat’s age and color. Regular maintenance helps protect against UV rays, salt air, dirt, and mold.

What is the best boat polish and wax?

With so many options out there, it can be overwhelming trying to select a good polish and wax for your boat. Quite simply, we recommend that you invest in a high quality marine grade wax.

You can’t go wrong with the brand we use, which is Starke Yacht Care. This is one of the best on the market today without a doubt.

Is it better to polish or wax a boat?

Both polishing and waxing are important for maintaining your boat, but they serve different purposes:

  • Polishing: Polishing removes oxidation, stains, and minor scratches, restoring the boat’s shine and smooth surface. It’s ideal for bringing back the luster of faded or dull surfaces.
  • Waxing: Waxing provides a protective layer against UV rays, salt, and other environmental elements. It helps maintain the boat’s shine and makes future cleaning easier.
How long does wax last on a boat?

This, like many questions, depends on a few factors like how well the boat is kept clean in between wax applications, how and where the boat is stored, is it covered or uncovered, etc.

Generally speaking though, a good quality marine grade wax should last anywhere from 4 to 6 months as long as the application process is done properly. Cutting corners and not having proper technique can cause the ending results to not hold as long as it should.

5 Reasons to Invest in a Waxing Program For Your Boat or Yacht

Maximizing Your Vessel's Value and Performance

Improved Appearance:

Regular polishing and waxing gives your boat a glossy finish, enhancing its visual appeal and ensuring it always looks its best. This process restores the vibrancy of colors, making them look just as bright as they were on the day you bought your vessel.

Increased Longevity:

Our services provide a protective barrier against UV rays, saltwater, and other harmful elements, effectively prolonging your boat’s lifespan.

Maintenance of Boat Value:

Maintaining your boat with routine waxing and polishing can help sustain its value, ensuring a higher resale price in the future.

Prevention of Damage:

Putting your vessel on a routine maintenance program can help to spot small damages or issues before they worsen. This proactive approach aids in preventing costly repairs in the future.

Improved Fuel Efficiency:

A polished and waxed boat has a smoother surface, which can help to reduce drag as you move through the water. This can improve fuel efficiency, saving you money in the long run.
