We at Top Notch specialize in yacht restoration. It takes years of experience to be able to analyze the surface of the yacht and to understand and implement the methods, procedure and products to properly restore the gel coat or paint.

 

If you boat is very oxidized, a simply buff will just not CUT it. You will have deep routed oxidation that is still with-in the gel coat. The goal in our minds is to cut past this oxidation layer and to reveal the clear unform coat of existing paint or gel coat.

 

In order to do this, we may have to wet sand the surface. We may have to use up to 4 different stages of polish to enhance the shine and reduce the swirling and sanding scratches left by agressive polishes and wet sanding machine marks.

If you are boat owner with a blue hull you know that it can be a major task trying to keep it looking up to ship shape. Dark lusterous finishes show every water spot, run, dust spec, you name it!

Afterall we all know that our Victorian winters are quite mild compared to the rest of canada, or even a majority of north america to say the least. Some years we get snow, some years we dont. One thing we never go with out, is rain.

2015/16 had a lot of rain, resulting in a lot of green growth, mildew and mess all over your prized princess. The rainier winters disturb the instantaneous rush of heading to the marina to wash your boat, leaving the spring catch up work to much for you to handle on your own time.


We've said it before, and we will say it again...Have no fear TOP NOTCH IS HERE! We have just the right skills and our premium yacht products we ensure long lasting high quality results, bringing your boat back to the brilliance and shine you remember from when you first purchased her...or even better!
