Washing your boat after each outing is a great way to help maintain your vessel’s beauty long-term, and it can cut down on maintenance needed down the road. Getting into this regular routine can also cut down on the time it takes to maintain your boat.
There are many brands of boat washes out on the market to help get this job done, and Wholesale Marine carries an extensive inventory of boat soaps and washes you will want to check out. We carry washes from Babe’s Boat Care, Boat Bling, Starbrite, Toon Brite, and Shurhold. All of these brands are formulated with high-quality products for easy cleaning.
What’s the best boat wash?
For routine cleaning, we recommend Babe’s Boat Bubbles. It is specially formulated to remove grime and build-up without stripping wax and sealants. For tougher hard water stains, Boat Bling’s Hot Sauce is a wash many boaters use to remove mineral deposits, hard water spots, and exhaust build-up.
For boats left in the water, you may require a heavy-duty wash such as Toon-Brite’s Fiberglass Cleaner. Made for tough jobs, this cleaner removes scum, lime deposits, and oxidation. It’s safe for use on painted surfaces including most fiberglass surfaces.
What’s the best boat wash for saltwater?
Most marine washes work to remove minor salt deposits. Salt Off, on the other hand, has been specifically formulated to remove salt deposits quickly and effectively from painted, plastic, metal, and fiberglass surfaces. Special PTEF polymers bond to the surface to help prevent future deposits.
Can you wash a boat while it’s in the water?
If you want to give your boat a wash down while it's at the marina or dock, make sure you choose a biodegradable wash. Starbrite’s Sea Safe Boat Wash has a biodegradable formula and will safely remove dirt, fish blood, salt deposits, waterline stains, and more.
