Boat Detailing and Cleaning


Just like every other service at GK’s Custom Polishing, Inc., our boat detailing services are performed at the highest standards of quality possible. GK’s has been performing boat and jet ski detailing since 1996, so we understand the complexity of all the surfaces on boats. Everybody knows what type of elements your car is exposed to daily: rain, snow, dirt, salt, construction dust, etc… If you own a boat, you know the list of elements your watercraft is exposed to is even more extreme. Here at GK’s, we understand that your boat is a large investment, and we want to help you preserve that investment for many years to come.

Just like any other high ticket item such as cars, planes or RVs, boats have specific maintenance and detailing needs that should be attended to on a regular basis. Many parts of your boat are easy to maintain or fix up, but if left unattended, can present large problems that are expensive and time consuming to repair. Boats are notorious for sharp decreases in resale value in their first few years, largely because most owners do not care for them properly.

Boats have many different materials, including fiberglass, gel coat, bottom paint, canvas, stainless steel, chrome, mahogany, teak and many more. GK’s Custom Polishing, Inc. employs a full-time detailing manager that inspects every item that leaves our facility and makes sure it is perfect. If you have any questions about boat detailing, feel free to speak with him.


A quick fresh water spray with the marina hose is no substitute for a thorough cleaning and detailing performed on a regular basis. A full detailing job on your powerboat or sailboat may include:

  • Hull Detailing
  • Topside Detailing
  • Interior Detailing
  • Bilge Cleanout
  • Machine Polishing
  • Stainless Polishing
  • Carpet Cleaning
  • Wax Application
  • Oxidation Removal
  • Decal Removal
  • Bottom Sanding/Painting
  • Teak Refinishing

GK’s can detail your boat either at a location of your choice (marina or home) or at their detailing facility.  GK’s indoor detailing facility can accommodate almost any size boat.  So, whether it’s raining, snowing or sunny out, we can always assist you at our facility.  If needed, GK’s can also safely transport your boat anywhere in the continental United States (up to 38’ in length).  We also can also securely store your boat or jet ski at one of our year round climate-controlled storage facilities.

Has your jet ski seen a little too much fun in the sun? GK’s offers full service jet ski detailing. Our comprehensive detail includes polishing, buffing and waxing for both single or double jet skis. We provide the care that other detail shops do not. Don’t let anyone besides GK’s handle your precious toys.
