Boat Detailing

Caring for your boat…

When it comes to boat detailing the exterior, interior care, and maintenance, boats are very different from cars.  Boats lose their value faster than any other vehicle, one because the owners are not taught how to properly maintain them and secondly the elements here in Utah are havoc to their gel-coat, vinyl, carpets, plastics, wood, chrome, and fiberglass. The high UV radiation of Utahs elevation is a leading cause of damage. Today’s boats are very expensive, and if not taken care of properly, they can be super expensive to fix. In many cases, prevention is far cheaper than repair! I have the skills, experience, and products to care for your boat. At a minimum, you should get Reflections Detailing boat detailing service done once a year.

As you can see, a boat’s finish will dull (oxidation) over time, with proper yearly care you can keep the shine, protection, and new look.
