​Boat Vinyl Protectant Products



Between the fiberglass, the boat bilge, and the range of objects on your boat that need protecting, it can be easy to forget one of the old standby materials on your boat: vinyl. Fresh, clean vinyl will have your boat’s interior looking new. But if you don’t keep up on simple maintenance with some easy-to-use boat vinyl protectant products, that vinyl can wear over time. Here’s what you need to know to keep your boat interior looking its best.


Why Protect Your Vinyl?

The image most of us have of vinyl is positive. We think of it as a durable, sturdy surface for upholstery. And that’s right. Vinyl upholstery is easy to clean and resistant to water, for example. But that doesn’t mean vinyl doesn’t need its own protection once in a while.

Here are a few potential issues with vinyl you need to be aware of:

  • Dust and debris. Vinyl is water-resistant, making it ideal for use on boats. But that doesn’t mean it will resist everything that comes its way. Dust and debris can gather on vinyl if you don’t clean your boat often. This is easy to get rid of but does require a bit of diligence on your part if you want your boat to look its best.
  • UV damage. Vinyl is constantly exposed to the sun, which means it’s also exposed to damaging UV rays. As you might recall from your previous sunburn, UV rays can lead to damage. With vinyl, they can lead to discoloration that you can’t simply paint back on.

That means you’ll have to look for two things out of the best boat vinyl protectant products around: cleaning prowess and long-term protection. Fortunately, it’s possible to have both in the same bottle.

Using VinyLIFE for Long-Term Vinyl Health

VinyLIFE Vinyl Cleaner & Protectant features an easy spray-on applicator that’s perfect for making quick work of the dust and debris that your vinyl collects over time. A simple bottle with a rag is enough to clean your vinyl.

No rinsing will be necessary. The best part about this product is what happens after application—the layer of protection. It can also help restore the color of your vinyl if you’ve noticed some fading or discoloration, which in turn gives you the new vinyl look you need without replacement.

If you’re waiting on a bottle of protectant and simply want to take good care of your vinyl for the short-term, use a general Boat Cleaner. This specific formula is designed to be used just about anywhere on your boat, which means you won’t be restricted to cleaning vinyl with it. One purchase will be enough to clean fiberglass and other substances that need to be clear of debris.
