​Best Fiberglass Boat Wax – What To Look For



Nothing makes a boat look better than a clean, strong fiberglass hull. But fiberglass can be difficult sometimes, which means keeping that look can be tough. Without the right wax, it’s darn near impossible. That’s why it’s important to know what to look for when searching for the best fiberglass boat wax. Here are a few tips to help get you started.

Custom Boat Graphics on Fiberglass

If you have custom boat graphics, your first priority should be to protect the look and luster of these graphics. After all, you took the time, energy, and money to acquire them for your boat. Presumably, you want that investment to last you a long time. You need to ensure proper protection for these custom graphics to prevent issues like discoloration.

One of the top priorities you’ll need is UV protection. Graphix Wax includes UV protection to help prevent the discoloration and fading associated with repeated exposure to the sun’s UV rays.

That’s a great start to keep your custom graphics looking great. But there’s more that goes into making Graphix Wax effective, including:

  • Solvent-free wax that does not deteriorate the custom graphics themselves. Any time you use a solvent near your custom graphics, you should pay attention. Fortunately, Graphix Wax’s  is solvent-free, easy on fiberglass and these custom graphics.
  • High-grade components for durability. Long-term protection is just as important as the quality of that protection.
  • Cleanliness. Can a wax clean out dirt, grime, and stains to ensure proper adhesion and thorough protection? If not, it’s time to keep shopping.

Combined with the UV protection already mentioned, these are the characteristics you need to look for to protect a custom graphics job. Anything less will be settling. And when it comes to fiberglass, you can always see the difference between settling and going for the best possible products.

But what if you need a general wax?

What to Look for in the Best Fiberglass Boat Wax

When it comes to the best fiberglass boat wax, two words should be top of mind: protection and durability.

The quality of protection includes many of the ideas you saw above. For example, the boat wax you’re thinking about buying should include a note about its UV protection on the label. You’ll find this on Life Wax.

For durability, you should once again turn to the label. But you’d be surprised at what labels across different products might turn up. For example, PolyShine, when used in conjunction with Life Wax, will last approximately three years. That gives you more bang for the buck because of its longevity, of course. But even more importantly, it gives you the peace of mind that your boat’s fiberglass is properly polished and protected all year long.

When you buy the fiberglass waxes made from the highest-grade components, you’ll give your fiberglass a better chance at preserving its color and luster for years to come. Even better, a little bit of research now can pay big dividends in the future. Keep searching all of our boat cleaning and maintenance products to find the best ways to keep your boat looking young.
