08 Aug Boat Wrap FAQ’s
Boat wrapping is the hottest trend in marine exterior redesign. If you’re looking to add some pizzazz to your boat, there is no better option. Boat wrapping is much different from painting, so you may have some questions about the process. Whether it be design, cost, time or maintenance, we will go over some boat wrap FAQ’s (Frequently Asked Questions) to give you some answers.
What is a wrap?
A wrap is a vinyl which is digitally printed with graphics and adhered directly to the exterior of your boat. Boat wrapping is an art and taxes precision and planning. Well done wraps are frequently mistaken for custom paint jobs.
How do I create the wrap design?
The design of the wrap is key to ending up with a finished product that works for your particular boat. All boats have unique curvatures that will have an affect on the end product. It’s best to enlist a professional boat wrap design company that can create the perfect design for your vessel. The design process generally takes 5 days, but that can vary depending on the size of the boat.
How do I clean my wrap?
Dish soap and water! Sounds easy, right? Use a cloth or soft brush along with the soap and water and that’s all you’ll need to do to keep your wrap clean and shiny. There is no need to wax your wrap as the vinyl is laminated for protection.
How long will my wrap last?
A well-maintained boat wrap will last 5-7 years. It is generally recommended that you replace the wrap every 4 years, however. If your wrap is damaged, the vast majority of the time it can be patched or a portion of the wrap can be replaced. Another great feature of boat wrapping is that it isn’t permanent. If you decide to remove your wrap, this can be done and no damage will have been done to the exterior beneath. In fact, boat wraps will help protect your paint from UV rays and outside elements.
