Arizona Boat Wraps
Protect Your Boat with the Application of Vinyl Wraps
When banker JP Morgan was once asked about the cost of his huge luxury yacht, he replied with the now famous retort, “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it!”
These days thankfully, boat ownership is within the grasp of more Americans than just the super wealthy. In fact, owning and running a boat is becoming more and more popular, with over 7% of Americans now proud private boat owners. That may not seem like a lot, but is actually equates to over 7 million of us – that’s a lot of captains out there!
Of course, while the costs of boat ownership have dramatically decreased over the years there still remain a number of costs to factor into your budget if you’re intending on joining this growing number of happy boat owners.
Mooring, fees, fuel repairs and maintenance can quickly mount up – though there is a new technique out there than certainly help keep the later charges down – boat wraps. The technique of wrapping vehicles in vinyl wraps has been around for quite some time now – think of vehicles with business details printed on the sides or perhaps a famous celebrities leopard spotted Porsche.
But it’s applications in the marine world are still relatively underappreciated, despite the fact that vinyl wraps can be a cheaper, more efficient method to get your topsides looking as good as new by:
- Protecting your boat’s GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) surfaces from the harmful effects of UV radiation.
- Protect from fading and abrasion
- Far easier to repair and replace than a full reapplication of paint
- The ability to change your mind – a coat of paint is irreversible, once it’s on it’s on, barring a long and laborious process to strip it. Vinyl wraps can be easily removed and reapplied allowing you to change the style and color of your boat as frequently as you like.
- A smooth finish without hours of sanding and preparing surfaces – like you would have to with a paint application.
- It is cheaper than paint, and a far simpler job to apply.
- A boat wrap is also surprisingly long lasting, typically lasting for about 6 to 8 years, depending on your local weather conditions.
With all that in the plus column, it’s difficult to see a downside, so we would definitely recommend contacting a local supplier to discuss your options before you put down JP Morgan levels of cash for a new paint job! Consider Arizona boat wraps.
