Ceramic coatings are a fairly new addition to the yacht & boat detailing world, but are far from a new science. These nanotechnology based sealants deliver incredible durability in addition to superior surface protection in the fields of UV, dirt, chemical, and stain resistance. We offer a coating for aluminum towers & outriggers as well as a coating for paint & gelcoat. Ceramic coatings create a 9H glass like layer of protection which resists oxidation, scratches, stains and chemicals. What chemists as well as customers have found is these sealants are both very versatile, also able to be used on other yacht surfaces with excellent success. For those looking for the absolute finest in marine surface protection, ceramic coatings are the greatest advancement technology has to offer. This service truly brings boat & yacht detailing to a whole new level!
For very neglected Gel-coats, even the most aggressive compounds will not comletely remove the oxidation build up. We use a 3-4 step process of wet-sanding the gelcoat removing all oxidation and scratches. We follow that by a 2-3 step process of compounding, to bring back the shine. Then we apply a finesse-it glaze to polish your gelcoat which removes any scratches or imperfections and prepares the surface to be sealed. The process is finished with the application of a professional marine grade caranuba wax(3 months of protection when properly care for) or a gel-coat polymer sealant -- providing up to 4 months of protection and amazing shine for your investment.
Compounding removes oxidation, chalkiness and faded gel coats. It will restore your faded color to its original luster. We only use top of the line, quality marine compounds. Each compound is determined by the age of the gel coat and condition. Some boats may need a light compound, as others will require a medium to heavy duty compound. We use a 2-3 step process to bring your gel coat back to its original condition.

An entry-level and probably the most cost-effective service you can purchase here at Crystal Clear Detail. Typically there are two types of washes, your standard weekly wash, or a deep/maintenance wash.
A weekly wash is a great way to keep your boat dialed in, in between major waxings and details. What can you expect in a weekly wash? A thorough cleaning from the waterline up. We will wash the boat from bow to stern, and top to bottom. Give a quick cleaning in your hatches, compartments, tracks, and underneath your vinyl seats. They will also give all your metal, windows, isinglass a good cleaning and wipe down. Also hit the boat with a quick spray wax to enhance the gloss to keep the boat looking great week after week since the boat shouldn’t be too dirty. Price will vary based on the condition. Price: $5-10/ft
This type of wash will dig deeper into your boats inner workings. A good fit for boaters who may not be looking for a full-blown detail but their boat needs more love than a weekly wash. Or the hardcore fisherman after a hard trip offshore. A detailer will typically do everything mentioned in a weekly wash and then some. This will involve diving deeper into the hatches, pulling all the gear out and really cleaning out the compartments, and placing the gear back in. Look in the bilge area on your smaller powerboats and give a good cleaning with a degreaser. Even mold/mildew removal on cushions, under gunwales, and any other places mold may be hiding. For maintaining a coating it will involve going over the boat with a booster spray, for example, our graphene refresh, or solar/graphene glow. Price: $15-40/ft
Here’s where things start to pick up speed and will start to become time-consuming. Chances are if you’re compounding the boat you’ll need to follow up with a polish to refine the surface more and eliminate any swirling that may be left behind. Although, the correct pad and product combo can allow you to finish down in one step depending on the severity of oxidation. What follows a good buffing will be an intense wash and some form of sealant/protection. The boat tends to turn into a sand trap from heavy cutting and you need a clean surface to apply your wax. Price: $25-65/ft
If your boat needs more attention than just a buff and polish, your detailer will probably step up to wet sanding. When wet sanding this is usually a multi-stage process working up from a coarse grit paper into a finer grit sand paper. After sanding the detailer will need to followup with a compound and polish to refine the surface. Price: $55+ /hr
Probably one of the more expensive services you will pay for when detailing your boat from the sheer cost of supplies but well worth it, if cared for. A ceramic coating involves complete paint/gelcoat correction so factor in some of the pricing above. After the correction step, the boat will undergo a strip wash with a dedicated strip wash or dawn soap. Following a deep bath, the detailer will apply a prep wipe. This is comprised of Isopropyl alcohol mixed with other cleaners to provide the surface with a truly blank canvass for the coating to bond to. An additional step some detailers may follow through with next is applying a primer polish that contains Si02. The purpose of this is to fill in the pores of the gelcoat and allow an even surface for the coating to bond to. It does provide a better bond, especially on a boat whose surface may be a little worse for wear. Price: $50-150 and up/ft
This can go a few different ways depending on the size of the boat. A basic cuddy cabin is a much simpler cleaning process than a smaller express cruiser. As you move larger into more substantial yachts where the complexity grows you’ll see the pricing start to vary. What is the detailing company doing a quick wipe down? Or are they going deep and digging into every nook and cranny? Are they cleaning bedding and towels as well? Do you want your carpets shampooed? What can be included is a full wipe down with an APC, cleaning in the draws, fridges, heads, galley. Vacuuming the carpets and cleaning/polishing any wood surfaces inside. Cleaning any wood with Murphys, getting rid of all fingerprints on any high polished metal including door handles. Price: Basic cuddy wipes to small express cruisers $15-45 and up/ft. Yachts – whatever the detailers hourly rate is $55/hr per man & up.
Another task that varies based on the boat size because of how involved it can become. A small center console is simple cleaning with a degreaser and wiping/rinsing. Whereas, a larger sportfish or yacht will have a much more intricate engine room and bilge. In a larger boat with a full-blown engine room. Detailing the engine room and bilge will involve spraying a degreaser throughout the entire engine room and wiping it down. Even gently misting the engine room to help rinse off the degreaser but avoid soaking everything. For stubborn stains, it will require agitation with a detail brush and wiping clean or even steam for those tough to reach areas. Within all the bilge areas and in between the stringers and motors can be a pain to reach and clean in and require some effort. After cleaning under engine mounts, the detailer may even replace the oil-sorb pads with fresh ones. Some routine bilges like on a small center console may even be included in your detail. Price: $50 and up or an hourly rate of $110+/hr
