An essential item for maintenance, marine varnish or boat varnish is useful for protecting a wooden vessel from exhibiting signs of wear or breathing new life back into an older boat.
Varnish is different to boat paint as it does not contain any pigment. Instead, it provides the surface with a hard coating that is most commonly transparent. A varnished boat can emphasise the beautiful characteristics of the wood and prolong its life considerably.
Take a look below for our full range of marine varnishes and product specifications.
Marine Varnish For Wood
Varnishing your boat can be somewhat of a tiresome exercise, but when applied correctly, the results produced are more than worth the effort. Unlike vessels made from teak, wooden boats often have the tendency to eventually weather and rot over time if left uncovered or unprotected from external elements. To combat this, you can use marine grade varnish to cover any exposed or worn out areas.
Each type of marine wood varnish has different properties, so take a look at the individual product specification before making your purchase. All our varnishes provide UV protection, but each type of product can have fast drying, slow drying or glossy finish properties.
We offer boat varnishes manufactured from some of the biggest names in the industry, including International, Epifanes, Bird Brand and more. These products are available in a variety of quantities that can be purchased depending on your specific marine varnish requirements.
Alternatively, we offer a range of wood oils that can be easily applied and reapplied when necessary.
