marine detailing services outer banks It is important to have your boat washed at least weekly or bi-weekly. This helps maintain its appearance between polishings and keeps your prized possession looking her best all the time. A regular wash will also keep your boat protected from the long term effect of environmental pollutants (salt, diesel soot, bird droppings, dirt, grime, etc.)

Washing your boat is not always as easy as it looks. Over the past several years we have discovered that a soft wash is much gentler on the boats surface. With our techniques added the soft wash is just as effective as those hard abrasive cleansers such as bleach, soft scrub, dawn, joy, etc. Many people wash their boat unknowingly with harsh abrasives and in turn break down their applied sealants and there boats surface. Trust CMD from the beginning to get the job done right the best way, the first time. We look forward to washing your boat.

CMD basic wash package includes the following but can be easily customized or tailored to the needs of any boat.

  • Wash and chamois-dry from the top down
  • Isinglass and windows cleaned and dressed
  • Exterior Metal wiped down and dressed as needed
  • Upholstery cleaned and dressed

Here at Coastal Marine Detailing we only use the finest products. We have found that sealants are far better and last longer than standard wax. With our experience and the use of many different products we have found that all wax, even those so called best marine waxes (Paste and Liquid) heat up, soften and hold dirt vs sealants that repel any environmental pollutant. So, be assured when you are having work done by CMD we are building a protective barrier on your boat's surface to keep it from being harmed by things such as, sun, salt, spills and the weather. The surface will be easier to maintain so to insure the beauty and longevity of your boat.

We believe in and recommend refinishing techniques to bring your boat back to life. For boats that have this medium to heavy oxidation we use a rubbing compound and a special method to bring the full color back to deeply faded boats. This procedure should only be done by a professional boat care specialist!!

If your boat has any medium to heavy oxidation (dull chalky appearance) it needs to be removed. By doing this we are restoring your boats surface, from there we add a protective sealant and this will give you a long lasting shine. This form of service truly sets Coastal Marine Detailing out above all of the rest in the detailing world.

Topside Renewal w/ Compound, Buff and Polish
High speed buff with compound then followed by a finer compound to remove swirls. Then two coats of sealant are applied from the rub rail up. Always a four step process for heavily oxidized boat/yachts.

Hull Renewal w/ Compound, Buff and Polish

Without proper care vinyl will become cracked, yellow and scratched.
