JWS Marine offers an extensive boat detailing program, be it just a wash down or a complete buff and polish.

We can customise a program for your boat all year round, keeping it looking new and protecting the paint work and gel coat from the harsh elements, so all you have to do is jump on board and enjoy your boat.

There are many options available and an array of areas covered under the maintenance aspect of boat ownership, below are a few examples of these –

Full Valet:

Boat looking a little dull? Give her a new lease of life with a full valet, which includes but is not limited to

  • Steam clean of the hull and Super structure wit hot soapy water and then dried off (This task would be dependant on access)
  • 2 Non-aggressive compounds are used on the hull
  • 2 Coating of wax are applied by hand

Teak Cleaning:

Rejuvenate all your boats teak with a teak clean, this is a 2 part product that will give the teak a new lease of life.

Vessel wash down:

To remove that yearly build up of salt and grime, we can carryout a yearly wash down of the hull and super structure upon lift out to help against the salt deposit around the fixtures and fittings.

Machine B&P to gel coat and paint work:

Buff and polishing is an essential part of keeping your boat to a high standard. B&P of  a boat is not as easy as you may think, as most B&P products have Teflon in them, this removes a small amount of gel coat or paint with each application and over time this impacts on the thickness and shine.

Here at JWS we apply just the right amount of product needed to carryout the buff and polish to a professional level, resulting in some boats being able to spread the B&P requirements  to every 2 years as opposed to every year.

Picture below shows the Starboard side buffed with the Port side un-touched, you can see the difference a B&P makes.

Stainless steel polishing:

One of the most important items of your boats maintenance is the polishing of the stainless, this includes stanchions, windows frames, fixtures and fittings. Before we start a job we do a walk around to check for defects such as broken split pins or cracked bottle screws etc, if stainless requires polishing this will be added into the program at your agreement.

Carpet and upholstery clean:

We can carry out a full steam clean of carpets and soft furniture to removed grounded in dirt and stains.

Upholstery recovering:

Looking for anew colour scheme, then we have a great sub-contractor that can carryout all recovering and alternations.

Bilge and Engine room:

De-greasing oil and grey water removal from your engine room, cleaning bilges, yes, it is very messy and smelly and not a job for the faint nosed. JWS use products that are environmentally friendly but can still carryout the job adequately. Engine room bulkheads, floors and stringers can easily be re-flow coated (Painted) to bring them back to new condition.

Before we start the cleaning process, we go on board and lay down cloth over the carpet, we use the hard durable carpet protector. We can also remove and replace insulation materials to achieve the most effective noise reduction available.

Covers and Canopies:

Bird droppings, mold build up on edging and stitching or just day to day dirt and grime, we can clean these or in some cases we can send the covers off for dry cleaning.

Stain Removal:

Any stain can be tackled, whether it be in the gel coat, fiberglass, paint work or other, after many years experience in this business, there isn’t a stain we have not seen.


Is your tread-master, anti-slip deck coating looking a little worn and tiered, why not try TREADCOTE paint, treadcote is designed to rejuvenate the appearance of heavily weathered or stained TREADMASTER original.
