BOAT HULL AND CABIN WRAPS
WHY DO OUR CUSTOMERS WRAP THEIR BOATS?
1. To give the boat a modern look
Pick a colour that suits today and your tastes, and protects the underlying gel-coat or paint of your boat while you are at it!
2. To fix fading of gelcoat or paint
We often wrap over the top of a fading coloured gelcoat such as the dark navy blue, red, or cream/brown gelcoats that are were quite popular with some of the boat manufacturers and therefore their customers as they do look stunning new. Unfortunately in the Australian sun the surface gets oxidised quite quickly and become porous making it hard to keep them looking glossy and new with standard polish and wax methods.
Wrapping of surfaces so that the wrap can be removed in years to come having provided some protection to the underlying gelcoat or paint surface.

Frequently asked questions
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DAMAGE IT?
Our number one question, and a good one. It can be patched, and it is pretty easy to do. If you don't feel like doing it though, we can.
HOW EASY IS IT TO DAMAGE?
Hard to describe, but it is a little easier to damage than gelcoat. Treat it like a new paint job. Use fenders, use fender covers, and it will be more than fine. Hitting the wharf isn't good for any kind of finish.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
We generally use 3M film, which has a durability when vertical of up to 7-8 years. We suggest to work on around 5 years durability for a normal hull wrap. If you are wrapping horizontal sections like the cabin, this is reduced. Speak to us to discuss your situation and what climate the boat will live in.
