Boat Detailing: A Winter Necessity

In a previous blog,

We discussed the business of auto detailing in the winter and ways franchise owners have been able to maintain steady growth during the winter months. In that blog, we focused mainly on car detailing, however, as winter approaches, boat owners are cleaning off their vessels and protecting them from the winter conditions. At Wings Mobile Detailing, we understand the unique needs of boat maintenance. Being a mobile business allows us to come to their boats which makes the process even more convenient for the customer, and makes our service more desirable. In this blog post, we'll explore the techniques we employ to prepare boats for winter.

In 2022, there were about 11.77 million registered vessels in the United States. This means that roughly 12% of households in the U.S. own a boat.


Boat Detailing: A Winter Necessity

As the winter chill approaches, boat enthusiasts know that proper detailing is essential to preserve the health and appearance of their prized watercraft. At Wings Mobile Detailing, we understand that need, and provide a range of services. The most common of which is the exterior wash:


Wings boat detailing services include:

Thorough Exterior Wash with Wax Treatment

Our detailing process kicks off with a comprehensive exterior wash. We detail everything exterior on smaller vessels, as well as, larger boats covering the hull, deck, cabin, and all intricate components. To prevent water spots from acting as dirt magnets, we ensure the boat is thoroughly dried and wiped down, eliminating any trace of moisture.

Scrub, Lubricate, and Polish

Depending on the size of the vessel and what needs to be done, we cover cleaning canvas shades and windows to scrubbing seats and applying vinyl conditioner, our team pays attention to every detail. We meticulously polish stainless steel and restore the rub rail, leaving no element untouched.


Our careful approach extends to cleaning carpeting using biodegradable boat soap or mild detergent. We use a steam vacuum to remove bacteria and ensure a thorough clean.

Clean the Cover

A clean boat deserves a spotless cover. We brush off visible dirt, wash, rinse, and dry the cover, to ensure that it is housed in a freshly cleaned canopy.
