Frequently Asked Questions

Do You Offer Mobile Boat Detailing in Wilmington?

Absolutely! Our comprehensive mobile service extends to homes, commercial docks, and marinas in Wilmington and its neighboring areas. As long as there’s water and power access within 100ft of your boat, our technicians will arrive fully equipped with all the required gear, eliminating the need for any extra supplies from you.

What areas do you provide your services?

Our services span across a broad region in Brunswick County, North Carolina.

Here’s the full rundown of our current service locales: Southport, Oak Island, Bald Head Island, Holden Beach.

How Frequently Should a Boat Be Detailed?

We suggest detailing up to twice annually for boats stored under cover. For those in-water and constantly exposed to the elements, 3 to 4 times a year is ideal, depending on the boat’s age and color. This routine helps shield against sun UV rays, salt air, dirt, and mold.

How long does it take to do a full detail on a boat?

The time it takes varies based on the boat’s size and condition, as well as staff availability. A typical 20 ft boat might take a day, while larger vessels, over 50 ft, could require several days. Factors influencing this include the level of oxidation, whether detailing is full or partial, the vessel’s location, and the size of the staff assigned to the job.

How Frequently Should I Have My Boat's Bottom Cleaned?

In most areas we serve, monthly cleanings are advised due to rapid marine growth. However, we also offer tailored packages considering factors like water salinity, usage frequency, and vessel type. When you call, we’ll discuss these aspects to identify the optimal cleaning schedule for your vessel’s year-round performance.

What other in-water diving services do you offer?

We offer in-water propeller removal and replacement, saving you time and cost vs hauling the boat out. We also do zinc changes, search and recovery, inspections for marinas, commercial landings, and insurance companies, video and still photo services, and soil samples for dredge agencies.

Do I need to haul out my boat for you to do a bottom clean?

No need for a haul-out. Our full-time dive teams will come to your boat and perform in-water bottom cleanings, complete with before/after photos, inspection reports, and zinc anodes as required. Hauling out is only necessary for fresh bottom painting or if there’s damage we can’t repair underwater.

Do You Offer Boat Interior Cleaning Services?

Certainly! We have three standard packages to suit various needs. Additionally, we’re happy to customize any of our detailing services to meet your specific requirements.

Do You Have Discounted Packages Available?

Indeed, at J&J Boat Services, we’re pleased to provide discounts to customers who are committed to maintaining their vessels at the highest standard. Check out our J&J Rewards Club for all discount opportunities.

Additionally, we take pride in supporting our veterans. Owners of veteran-owned vessels receive special discounts as our way of saying thank you for your service!
