Prepping Your Boat For Summer With ArmorThane
Boating is not an inexpensive hobby for anyone serious about it. It doesn’t matter if you have a motorboat, sailboat, or dinghy; the upkeep and money that you will need to invest in your passion is a significant investment. You’ll need to invest time and resources in protecting your investment, from preparing key equipment for seasonal use to maintaining your boat’s exterior.
Apart from the obvious safety concerns and technical maintenance, the most important task heading into the boating season is making sure your vessel looks good. If your boat deck is not covered during winter, the harsh weather and exposure to the sun can cause damage to your paint and other exterior components. ArmorThane’s premium protective coatings can be a great help.

Apart from the obvious safety concerns and technical maintenance, the most important task heading into the boating season is making sure your boat looks good. If your boat deck is not covered during winter, which is unlikely for larger vessels than a small one, the harsh weather and exposure to the sun can cause damage to your paint and other exterior trimmings. ArmorThane’s premium protective sealing agent can be a great help.
ArmorThane is the industry’s most popular elastomer coating. ArmorThane is a cost-effective and durable way to protect your boat’s exterior from damage. ArmorThane is an all-in-one solution that provides a heavy-duty shield for exposed exteriors.
ArmorThane was originally developed for use as a “bedliner” technology on pick-up trucks. From that first application, the industry expanded to include an ArmorThane premium sealing agent for North America. It provides a scratch-resistant coating that protects against road debris, dents, and cargo movement. It can be used on many surfaces. For the car and truck space, ArmorThane can be applied to any exterior area vulnerable to denigration–including wheel wells, bumpers, running boards, spare tire covers, vehicle hoods, trunks, and more. Our protective coating can be applied within vehicles to protect floors, seats, dashboards, glove boxes, and steering wheels. The technology is particularly useful for off-road vehicles (ATVs, UTVs, Jeeps, motorbikes, and more), where flying mud and rocks can quickly damage various vehicle surfaces–affecting both operations and the physical appearance of your most prized recreational investments.
ArmorThane protects your boat’s exterior from damage caused by dropped or moved items. It also prevents abrasion due to dock contact. ArmorThane also provides a “no-slip grip” surface coating to make decks safer. A slippery deck can cause unsecured items to slide quickly, leading to injury or loss of inventory. A slippery deck can increase the risk of bodily injury to passengers, including children and pets. ArmorThane provides additional protection.
Any nautical pro knows that Mother Nature is a formidable foe when it comes to recreational boating. The ability to withstand harsh weather conditions is what makes a paint job even more beautiful. ArmorThane provides excellent UV protection that protects color integrity and offers protection against rust, moisture/dampness, and sunlight. Elastomer protective coatings can also help keep your boat’s colors bright, even though they are subject to severe weather conditions. For a custom finish, we can match any color in any palette. Your boat should be your pride and joy.
ArmorThane can not only protect traditional boats from damage but can also protect investment in other marine-related equipment. The same technology solutions can be used to protect your investments and increase their potential resale values, regardless of whether you are into surfing, jet skiing, paddle boarding, or any other water-related pastimes.
ArmorThane is a great option for DIYers who love the challenge of boat renovations. It can be used to complement or integrate your existing deck project, as well as your existing color scheme and project. Our spray teams use the most reliable, dependable, and long-lasting equipment to provide a cost-effective, complete coating solution for your boat’s appearance and functionality. This will make your purchase from bow to stern look better.
