What is Mobile Boat Detailing and How Does it Help?

By January 7, 2016 General No Comments

If you want to extend the life of your boat and ensure it works well, you need to maintain it well. There are several boat owners that are lax when it comes to maintenance. That doesn’t just make the boat look dirty and old, but also damages it. Needless to say, regular maintenance is important and detailing is an important part of that maintenance.

Unfortunately, at Freedom Yacht Services, we have observed that most people forgo detailing and just settle for a rinse. That is mostly because detailing can be a hassle. You need to transport your yacht to the service provider’s location or attempt to do the detailing yourself. Neither of these options is easy so unsurprisingly, people tend to skip detailing even when their boat needs it. This is where mobile boat detailing comes in.

What is Mobile Boat Detailing?

One of the primary reasons why people avoid detailing is because of the hassle involved in taking the boat to the service center. With mobile detailing, the service center comes to you. In essence, you don’t even have to lift a finger to move your boat. We will come to where you boat is and get to work.

Mobile boat detailing is very convenient for people who simply don’t have the time to arrange for boat transport. It also ensures that you wouldn’t skip detailing just because you don’t have the time.

How Does it Compare to Normal Boat Detailing?

Some people are under the impression that mobile detailing isn’t as comprehensive as normal in-house boat detailing. That’s simply not the case. Mobile detailing is comprehensive enough to tide your boat over and ensure that it’s in good condition. The idea is to remove all dirt and grime from the surface of the boat and mobile boat detailing can achieve that. This service usually includes:

  • Rinse – The boat is washed from top to bottom to remove the outermost layer of dirt and grime that might have accumulated on the surface.
  • Soaping – After the rising, detailing experts will use boat soaps to carefully clean all surfaces of the boat.
  • Buffing – Buffing doesn’t just remove the most stubborn layers of dirt and grime, it also prepares the surface for waxing, which is the next step in mobile boat detailing.
  • Waxing – After the buffing, a careful layer of wax is applied to the surface of the boat.

These are just exterior detailing steps. You can hire people to clean and maintain the interior areas of the boat as well. This essential maintenance can be carried out by the dock, without you having to move the yacht.
