Yacht Varnish Features:

  1. Marine-Grade Protection: Our Clear Yacht Varnish is specifically formulated for marine use, offering superior protection against the corrosive effects of saltwater, sunlight, and humidity. The varnish creates a hard, durable coating that shields wood surfaces from water intrusion, preventing rot, decay, and warping.
  2. UV Resistance: The varnish contains UV inhibitors that block harmful ultraviolet rays, preventing the wood from fading, discolouring, or deteriorating over time. This ensures that your boat’s brightwork, decking, and trim maintain their natural beauty and lustre, even with prolonged exposure to sunlight.
  3. Enhanced Durability: Our Clear Yacht Varnish is highly resistant to abrasion, scratching, and scuffing, providing enhanced durability for high-traffic areas such as decks, railings, and cabinetry. The varnish forms a tough, flexible film that withstands wear and tear, ensuring long-lasting protection and beauty for your wood surfaces.
  4. Crystal-Clear Finish: The varnish dries to a crystal-clear finish that enhances the natural grain and colour of the wood, creating a rich, glossy sheen that is both beautiful and protective. The transparent finish allows the wood’s natural characteristics to shine through, adding depth and warmth to your boat or outdoor space.
  5. Easy Application: Our Clear Yacht Varnish is easy to apply with a paint brush, paint roller, or sprayer, allowing for smooth and uniform coverage on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. The varnish has excellent flow and levelling properties, minimizing brush marks and ensuring a flawless finish with minimal effort.
  6. Versatile Usage: Our Clear Yacht Varnish is suitable for a variety of marine and outdoor applications, including boats, yachts, decks, railings, furniture, and more. Whether you’re refinishing teak decking or protecting your outdoor furniture, our varnish provides reliable performance and lasting beauty for all your projects.

If the old varnish is peeling or damaged, you should completely strip it before adding the yacht varnish.
