Yacht Varnish and Wood Oil
Yacht varnish stands the rigors of UV sun exposure, salt water and all the harsh conditions a marine environment has to offer. For this reason, a good yacht varnish is tough, hard wearing and maintains a lasting high-quality finish. We carry varnish from Epifanes, International, Owatrol, Jotan, Hempel and Le Tonkinois. The first thing to consider when choosing a varnish or coating is the finish, usually ranging from satin to high gloss and how often you will updating the varnish. Do you require a low maintenance coating rather than varnish or is the perfect mirror varnish finish more important? Whichever varnish you choose, preparation is key, a clean dust free surface and as sterile environment as possible make the best conditions. Don't be over generous with the varnish on each coat, there is no magic secret to varnish, the perfect finish is often between 4 and 8 thin coats, with a gentle rub down between each one. If you have a specific varnish project in mind and not sure which would be the best finish and varnish for you, call or email our technical team and we can offer guidance.
