Boat Detailing & Cleaning

From GoldKey, the gold standard in boat service

GoldKey Marine VIP
Power boat

Whether you are taking your boat out to the Delta, Folsom Lake, Lake Tahoe, or any other boating area in Northern California, you want your watercraft to look shiny and clean for you, your family, and your friends.

 

At GoldKey Marine, we have over a decade of experience making boats look their very best for our customers.

 

Getting your boat professionally detailed with high-quality products will not only enhance your boat’s appearance but will help protect the value of your boat. 

 

Polishing and waxing your boat's hull at least twice a year provides long-lasting protection against the harmful effects of the elements — including the persistent ultraviolet rays of the California sun.

 

Whether you bought your boat recently or many years ago, it may be due for a complete cleaning job. Our team of detailers is ready to help.

The following prices are estimates for boats up to 25 feet long. Please give us a call — we will need to see the condition of your boat to give you a proper estimate.

 

If your boat needs to be wet sanded, we charge $100 per hour.

 

For all-wheel polish or any metal polishing, we charge $100 per hour.
