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 body of water 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 will not only enhance your boat’s appearance, but it 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. Our team of detailers is ready to help. To schedule an appointment, please call us at 916-358-5004.

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.
