Quickly Clean Your Boat After a Day on the Water

As previously published in Great Lakes Scuttlebutt Magazine 2023 Winter Issue.

Every boat owner knows the best-looking boat is a clean one, but cleaning can become a full-time job when you boat with kids and pets. With help from Presta® Marine, cleaning your boat after a day on the water with the family can be fast and hassle-free.  

When boating with kids and pets, the boat’s interior will take the brunt of the abuse. So, that’s where we are going to focus. Between climbing in and out of the boat on the swim platform, dogs shaking off, sunblock application, kids eating their PB&J and then touching interior surfaces, dirt, grime, sticky or greasy fingerprints, and paw prints can get everywhere. Presta Marine Deckspray, Vinyl and Plastic Cleaner, X-14® Heavy Duty Cleaning Wipes, and Express Detailer will remove it all.

Presta® Marine Deckspray All Purpose Cleaner is a powerful non-skid cleaner that removes heavy soils, grease, and grime. It is fantastic for cleaning the swim platform after a day of tubing or removing stubborn bilge and fish well stains after casting some lines.

Presta® Marine Vinyl & Plastic Cleaner powers away grease, grime, and dirt from vinyl, plastic, rubber, and leather. This ready-to-use formula penetrates deep into the pores to remove deeply embedded soils and leaves surfaces clean and film-free. It even removes mildew and spider droppings.

X-14® Heavy Duty Cleaning Wipes are dual-sided wipes with a textured side for scrubbing and a smooth side for wiping. They are tough enough to remove grease, oil, adhesive, dirt, and water-based paint from hard surfaces, vinyl, and leather and are safe to use on hands. X-14 Heavy Duty Cleaning Wipes are the most versatile product you can have in your boat cleaning arsenal, and they should be a staple in your storage compartment. Seriously, don’t leave the dock without them.

Presta® Marine Express Detailer is a powerful protectant and cleaner in one. It quickly removes light dirt and grime from most marine surfaces, including electronics, and provides wax protection. Use it to remove fingerprints from a touch screen or give your boat a quick wipe-down when you pull it out of the water.

With the use of Presta Marine cleaning products, cleaning your boat at the end of a day on the water shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes, depending on the size of the boat, but if you want to do a deeper clean, the products are up to the task. Add in some Presta Marine Ultra Concentrated Boat Wash and some Presta Marine Hydroprotek Ceramic Spray Coating, and your boat will be ready to launch the next time you use it.
