When questioning a new paint job or having a professional yacht detailing company restore the existing painted surfaces of his 200 Foot Fedship, Captain Rafe Paladino called Freedom Yacht Services. In doing so he saved his owner 100’s of thousands of dollars and saved hours of paint maintenance time for his crew. Freedom Yacht Services, highly regarded as the best yacht detailing group in South Florida, showed up with 2 service vans and 6 professional yacht detailers ready to rock. Working with a tight turnaround window the team finished the work in nearly 1 week. The results extraordinary. Freedom Yacht Service’s yacht detailing team used a highly refined German nano finishing system called Nanocane. This incredibly fine multi step procedure drastically restored the old painted surfaces back to new with the highest luster and clarity of shine. The service team finished the job off applying 2 coats of Nanocane Clear Coat to protect the paint for up to 8 months.

It’s rare new yacht detailing products come along that make me pull all remaining products of it’s kind from the work trucks and throw them away. Yesterday was one of those days. We received our first order from Yot Stik, a California based company dedicated to making detail wash downs aboard a luxury yacht much easier and stylish. http://yotstik.com
What arrived was amazing. Six sleek, beautiful, black carbon fiber extension poles scoping from 42”-72” inches and Two from 63”-113”. Insanely light weight for our yacht detailing in south Florida, Non marking on yacht paint or gelcoat and made in the good ole USA. We added TD Mop’s big bird brush heads to complete the fire power against our next wash down. The difference in weight is insane and the look very impressive. Check em out.

The jury has deliberated and a decision has been made. After years of testing marine ceramic coatings made for yachts and the harsh marine environment the science has finally been proven FACT. Freedom Yacht Services is a leader in the yacht refinishing and surface protection business and is at the forefront of this application revolution. A few companies exist in the production of marine ceramic coatings- one to speak of is ceramic pro- a maker of different ceramic coating products for paint, gelcoat, glass, leather and metal. We’ve found these products work very well and have been applying them on boats here in Ft lauderdale and Miami to much praise. These marine ceramic coatings add depth and extra strong protection against scratches, UV damage and harsh chemicals. Although more expensive to apply the payoff is huge as the ceramic coating seals in the look of our yachts surface permanently with only the need of a reapplication every 14-20 months. No more harsh compounds that remove the depth of your paint and gelcoat which drastically increases the shelf life of your yachts surface.
Freedom’s dual layer Ceramic Coating is specially designed for the Marine Environment and seals surfaces for years without the need for waxing. Applied by licensed applicators to guarantee the perfect surface prep and coating application- this highly durable, marine ceramic coating locks in your vessel’s high gloss finish-is scratch resistant and impervious to oxidization and corrosion.

Recently a captain friend called me up and asked us to come look at his 112 Westport Yacht saying it was time for a proper polishing of the Alex Seal paint. This would be the 1st time the boat’s paint would receive a machine polish / restoration process to restore it to maximum color and shine. I could hear the hesitation in his voice as there are a lot of yacht polishing groups out there and many that can destroy a nice paint job with 1 bad step. I assured him that we would take maximum care of his boat and lead him through the 5 most critical steps to getting the very best yacht detailing result.
- Examine the paint to accertain the damage and decide which cutting compound and polish you will use. This is just like a doctors prescription for your ailment. Typically if you can put your watch face up perpendicular to the painted surface and not see any hands it will need a 4-step polishing process. If only 1 hand is visible a 3-step paint polishing process and if only 2 hand showing a 2-step.
- Decide the very best polishing pad for the job. Today 3m has made huge strides with they’re dual sided foam polishing pads and we use these alot as they minimize swirls and leave a good level finish. If the yacht is gelcoat and heavily oxidized we recommend using super buff white wool compounding pads.
- Prep the surface before polishing your boat with a hard wash. A hard wash is soap and water with spray nine added for extra lifting qualities. We tell our yacht detailers that the initial wash down of your boat is the chance to get alot of work done up front. Other wise you would be just pushing around dirt and filling your buffing pads up with crap, preventing them from doing they’re job.
- Work with the sun and wind. If you can start the compound and polishing on the shaded side of the boat this is good because when paint heats up it gets soft and is more susceptible to swirls in the paint. Work down wind if you can to avoid fall out being blown back into your beautiful yacht finishing.
- Between each compounding step wash the boat to remove any residual polish and change your pad. This allows the yacht detailing products to do they’re maximum good and will give you an excellent, clean finish.
