Boat Yacht Detailing
Summer is short. Weekends are shorter. Enjoy the time on your boat!
We have been providing top-of-the-line, comprehensive boat and yacht detailing and shrink wrapping services since 1985. So whether it’s as simple as a wash and wax, or as in-depth as fiberglass repair services and teak maintenance, you can be assured that we have the experience and professionalism to detail every inch of your boat or yacht. Your investment is protected and you don’t have to spend your valuable free time working.
Once your boat has been waxed you will want to keep it looking its best. This can be accomplished by signing up for our wash maintenance service. We offer this service two ways, weekly and bi-weekly. This is a reoccurring scheduled service that appears on your crew leader’s schedule each week or every other week dependant upon which option you select. Our wash maintenance service includes a wash and chamois or your boat as well as a cockpit detail, which includes exterior glass cleaning, vinyl seats cleaned and dressed, exterior carpet vacuuming, hatches lifted and cleaned, and stainless and chrome wiped clean. Keep your boat looking good as new with our DOUBLE COAT WAX service.
We all know that working on your teak can be backbreaking work. Save yourself the trouble and allow us to take care of it for you. We offer a variety of teak services, complete refinishing with Cetol or varnish, cleaning, oiling, and maintenance coats. Let us set up a teak refinish and maintenance program to keep your teak looking beautiful all season long. Keep your boat looking good as new with our DOUBLE COAT WAX service.
Don’t forget what you can’t see! Bottom growth diminishes speed and uses extra fuel. Left unchecked, barnacles can invade the gel-coat, leading to costly fiberglass repairs. To prevent these costly issues for arrising, get your boat’s underside inspected and cleaned regularly. One time, monthly, and bi-monthly scheduling is available, but we recommend getting inspected at least twice a month. Recovery services also available on a case-by-case basis…for those keys that may have jumped overboard. Why not enhance your boat’s appearance with expert INTERIOR DETAILING & MAINTENANCE?
Vinyl boot stripes and pinstripes are subject to UV, saltwater, and abrasion damage just to name a few. A scraped up, faded, or chipped stripe will unfortunately adversely affect the appearance of your boat. We are happy to, and have the ability to, help you resolve this problem by replacing your striping. We will come to your boat, remove the old stripes and replace with brand new. This is the perfect way to update your older color scheme. And give your boat that extra sheen and protection with our DOUBLE COAT WAX.
Don’t forget your isinglass. Our isinglass treatment will help preserve your isinglass, remove fine scratching, and remove yellowing thus making it easier to navigate your boat while improving the appearance. We have products safe for use on isinglass, strata glass, EZ2CY, and all other types of clear marine plastics. This service is also recommended three times during the season, just set it up with your WAX DETAIL schedule.
This service is recommended for boats that have lost a bit of their shine or have mild oxidation. We offer one-step and two-step machine compounding dependant upon the severity of the problem. We begin by applying a mild abrasive compound with a high-speed buffer. And give your boat that extra sheen and protection with our DOUBLE COAT WAX.
You probably spend a great deal of time in your boat’s cabin, let us make that a pleasant place to be. We offer interior cleaning in two levels, Interior General and Interior Detail. Our general cleaning is just that—we’ll wipe down your sinks and countertops, vacuum all carpets, clean glass and mirrors, clean the head, and wax the shower. Step up to interior detailing and receive the same service as the general, plus cleaning inside all cabinets and drawers, inside the microwave, inside of the oven, inside of the refrigerator, and every last mini blind. And get your floors super clean with our CARPET/UPHOLSTERY STEAM CLEANING.
There are many benefits to setting up seasonal maintenance for your boat or yacht. Rather than wait until you discover a problem, you can curb the problem from happening in the first place. You’ll also receive the added benefits of discounted pricing, owing only one easy monthly payment, getting your boat’s services completed on time, constant surveillance of your boat, a higher resale value, and always having it clean…because you never know when the weather is going to be prime for going boating with friends or family.
The dirtiest part of your boat no longer has to be that way. Your bilge and engine room is where most odors originate. Oil and fuel collect at the bottom. Stagnant water and any leaks from the head sit down there as well. Our crew will come in, remove any standing liquid, clean, and degrease all surfaces. Add an ODMO treatment for odor control to that and you will have a clean fresh bilge. ODMO works by encapsulating the source of the odor thus breaking it down leaving no odor behind. This service can be scheduled at any time, though we suggest it be set up with your WAXING or INTERIOR DETAILING.
Ductwork can house a multitude of allergens, mold, mildew, and harmful bacteria or viruses that can infect the air you breath, creating an unhealthy environment. We utilize a Hepa filtered vacuum at one end of the duct that uses high pressure compressed air to break up the dust and contaminants, forcing them into the Hepa vacuum and preventing any of the dust and contaminants from entering your boat’s cabin. After the ducts are cleaned, move onto cleaning the coils, filters, and drip pan. All of your vents are then washed by hand, leaving you with a sparkling clean HVAC system. Looking for unbeatable air quality aboard your boat? Check out our revolutionary NAUTIC AIR™ system.
Despite your best efforts, over time your boat’s carpets and upholstery will become soiled and require steam cleaning to look their best again. Fabrics and fibers can pick up and harbor odors as well. We travel to marinas in our service area to perform this service at your slip. You may also be interested in our MATTRESS & LIFE JACKET SANITIZING.
What you cannot see can be harmful. Over time your mattresses become full of dead skin cells and dust mites. Our Mattress Sanitizing service removes these impurities and allergens. We’ll start by using a high power vacuum that actually draws the skin cells and dust mites out as deep as six inches. The next step is sanitization, which uses a specifically designed Ultraviolet roller. The entire surface area is sanitized and an anti allergen spray is applied to complete the service. If purchasing a used boat this service should definitely not be overlooked.
Not only can floors look shabby but they can harbor foul and harmful odors as well. Refinishing your floors will give your overall interior a fresh look. Our expert team will repair unwanted dents, nicks, scratches and gouges utilizing dustless sanders and air polishing systems to help protect the air quality inside the boat while refinishing the floor to its original beauty. We can even change the look completely with a different finish if desired. Small repairs can be done at your boat’s location or we will recommend one of several convenient marinas to bring your boat to for large projects. And get your whole boat sparkling clean with our DETAILED CLEANING service.
Boats are notorious for odors and they can come from many sources. Not only do they make your stay unpleasant (and often embarrassing with guests), but they also be harmful to your health. While you may think you know where they are originating, you may be surprised at some of the sources. We know where to look. We will come to you, inspect your boat from the bilge up, and develop a plan to clean up the odors by addressing the source—not just masking it. And you can feel good knowing our solution won’t create more problems. By utilizing only safe, “green” products and technology your odors are eliminated without harmful off gassing from toxic cleaning agents.
Shrink wrapping your boat in the off-season is the best way to protect it from the harsh winter weather. We start by setting up a support structure, then we pull the wrap onto the boat, strap it all down, and apply heat to allow it to shrink down for a nice snug weather proof fit. Vents are installed to provide air movement thus reducing moisture on the boat. We offer access doors to allow entry into the boat should the need arise. Shrink wrapping can be done wherever your boat is stored be it in the water, on land, on a trailer, or on a lift. Before or after hibernation for the winter, you should also consider our INTERIOR DETAILING & MAINTENANCE.
REPAIRS & INSURANCE CLAIMS
When the unthinkable occurs, whether an accident or a sunk boat, we already have established relationships with the top boat insurers. Because of the protocols already in place, we can mobilize quickly to minimize water damage to the boat and its contents. Our Team can remove and clean personal items whether or not the boat is salvageable so your memories are not lost. In the case of damage from impact, we can work with insurers to quickly obtain approvals for necessary repairs and help you get your boat back to normal with as little down time as possible.
Repair those stress cracks, structural damages, and other ‘mishaps’ with our expert gel-coat repair service. Things happen. We can repair those little dings, scratches, chunks, and even gaping holes. Our gel-coat expert technician can do amazing things. He also performs Imron and Awlgrip repairs and refinishing. And by scheduling your repairs through Schuman, we can coordinate your GEL-COAT work and your other DETAILING SERVICES.
It’s all in the details. That’s why you chose your boat. But often storms, leaks, mishaps, or even defects can detract from your boat’s beauty. Our master craftsmen can make small repairs like replacing damaged rails or completely re-veneer a yacht’s interior due to defects caused by sun and moisture. Damage to wood is not unique to old boats. New boats also face similar problems resulting from rushed production and an improper cure or finish job. We can also modify or change your WOOD if you simply want an updated look.
Whether it’s a tear, a missing snap, or a need for all new canvas enclosures, we have expert fabricators who will keep your boat’s canvas protected and looking as good as new. We can arrange for measuring, pick-up/delivery, and installation. And because all the work is scheduled through Schuman, you have our guarantee that it will meet your standards every time.
Damage to vinyl and leather is inevitable with normal wear and tear. But if ignored, exterior holes will allow water to infiltrate the entire area—resulting in a wet and often odorous mess. Schuman can repair these tears, holes, burns, and stains with amazing color and texture-matching ability. This process is much more affordable than getting a replacement, and it works for both vinyl and leather. Our technician is highly trained and skilled in repairs and has years of experience. Once he has completed the work, the area will not appear ‘patched’ at all. In fact, even you will have a tough time finding the original mishap. And give your boat that extra sheen and protection with our DOUBLE COAT WAX.
"...everything appears to have been done with the kind of care and attention I would have done myself."
Yesterday afternoon was the first time I've seen my boat since February. I am so-used to paying for any kind of service only to find myself thoroughly disappointed that the people I paid to do something truly didn't give a crap about anything other than my dollars.
But your people continue to be the exception to that norm. You did an awesome job on what I paid for you to do, but beyond that, everything appears to have been done with the kind of care and attention I would have done myself.
Simply, thank you.
