Boat Wraps vs. Painting: Benefits

Boat wraps can be better than painting. Why? Boat wrap is easier to care for than paint. You won’t need to polish or buff. It’s easy to care for. It can be done with soapy water .  In addition to that, if the vinyl wrap gets dented or scratched, a patch up vinyl application can be done. Repair depends on how old the boat wrap is.

Cost effective – First and foremost, boat wrapping is cheaper than painting. It’s very simple and looks as good, or better, than paint.

Protection – When you decide to wrap your boat, you are not just making it look fresher, nicer, unique, you are also protecting it against the UV rays as well as fresh and salt water. Boat wrap also protects against minor scratches, such as those that may be caused by driftwood or rubbing against the dock. Protecting your boat saves you money!

Turnaround – Boat wrap is faster turnaround than spray painting. The wrapping of a boat usually is done in a matter of a few days only.

Reversible – It is safe to say that boat wraps are fully reversible with no peeling of the paint underneath (so long as paint to be wrapped is sound). The process can take a while. It really depends on how much exposure the boat had, in case it has been on the boat for many years, 5+, it will get harder to remove, but it is certainly doable. Boat wrapping is nearly always a better option than painting, which is irreversible. You may just change your mind as well and decide to go for a new look. Or, perhaps you want your boat wrapped for a particular event that needs to be replaced on a regular basis with new artwork.

Greater range of colours – Boat wraps have more colours and variety than painting. Images, logos, and even photos can be “wrapped” on your boat vs. painting, which can be pretty plain. We also do wrapping of dash boards with carbon fiber finish which is always popular.

Boat graphic design

Boat wraps are easy, fun, and fast ways to draw attention to your boat. Draw attention in the harbour with creative and eye-popping, modern or classic boat wrap design solutions. There are plenty of options to choose from. We offer an in-house design service, or we can work with your designer, should you opt for that option. It may be that you have found a cool idea on the Internet, or perhaps from another boat you have seen. We can take that concept and translate it into a best-in-class boat wrap. But keep in mind that we will need high resolution graphic(s) involved; otherwise it would have to be recreated.

Here’s another scenario. Are you considering the idea of buying a second-hand or used boat, but you don’t like the colour? Boat wrap can turn an “old” boat into a new-looking boat – presto, fast.

Or would you like to smarten up your boat look before you sell it? Vinyl wrap is surely a cost-effective way to cover your boat. Boat wrap, in most cases, can be completed in a matter of days. Wrapping is a great solution in particular if you have a tight schedule and want to optimise your budget.

Nowadays, there is an enormous variety of colours and finishes to choose from. We can certainly create the look you envision. Go classic with a “Boat Blue” or make your boat stand out with a chrome or copper finish looking film. Boat wrap if fast, fun, and flexible. We are the top Sydney boat wrapping service, and with offices in Melbourne and Canberra, we can wrap a boat (or car, or truck, or van…) whereever it is in Australia. Fleet wrapping?

FAQ

How Much Does it Cost to Wrap a Boat?2022-01-27T18:12:38+00:00

How much does boat wrapping cost? This is the most common question we get related to boat wrap. It is the same as asking, how much does a boat itself cost or a car for that matter. The answer is relative to the size and the shape of the boat to be wrapped, as well as differing in case you want solid colours, cut out lettering or vinyl print wrap applied. If you want the interior of the boat wrapped, that can also very a lot depending on the finish involved. As a general rule, you would be looking at circa $1000 – $1500 per small boat partial wrap, boat lettering may be as little as $400 – $500.

How Long Will my Boat Wrap Last?2022-01-27T18:11:20+00:00

We only use the best vinyl in the market for boat wrapping, using mostly 3m and Avery marine wrap range. We also use 3m primer edge sealant for optimum preparation prior vinyl application. If you look after the wrap and do proper cleaning on it. It should last for a long time but obviously over the years, it will ultimately fade and it will have to be replaced. Colour vinyl that comes from the manufacture will always outlast printed vinyl, even when you overlaminate the prints. You can expect up to 7 years durability for the colour vinyl and around 4 to 5 for the printed option. That said, it will vary a lot depending on how well you look after it and how much sun exposure the boat will have. If the boat is docked at a marina 24/7 vs one that is berthed in a dry warehouse, the latter will certainly outlast the longevity of the former.

Can I Wrap My Own Boat?2022-01-27T18:09:42+00:00

Boat wrapping is not easy! Thus, we do not think DIY boat wraps are a good idea, unless you are experienced with vinyl wrap. As much as we have a policy to use the best marine vinyl in the industry, in order to perfectly install the vinyl. Best-in-class boat wrapping  comes down to experience, and we have lots of that! You can have the best vinyl in the market and execute it poorly leaving lots of marks and bubbles down the track if it is not done right from start. The cleaning process prior the application is just as important as the quality of the product and the skills to wrap the boat.

Where is Boat Wrapping Preserved?2022-01-27T18:08:05+00:00

We have a shop located in Leichhardt. It is located near the marinas in Sydney. We can also send our staff onsite for application and have a network of installers in the major cities across Australia to assist on commercial projects involving multiple wraps. For smaller boats, we have the capacity to wrap within our workshop. Otherwise, we can organise installers to go to the pier or boathouse where it is being stored to carry out the application. For large vessels, it is common to require the use of high reach equipment such as a scissor lift or boom lift.

How Long will it Take to Have my Boat Wrapped?2022-01-27T18:06:31+00:00

As a general rule, we need the vessel for a number of days. It will take far less time, if it is just vinyl lettering or minor strips involved. Full boat wrap, as well as intricate internal areas can take a number of days to achieve the desired result.

Can You Repair Damaged Car Wraps?2022-01-27T18:05:34+00:00

Yes, we can print the artwork involved again, or add solid vinyl as per original to replace the areas that got damaged in case something goes wrong. In saying so, if the wrap has been in the boat for a long time, it would have reacted with the sun and other elements. Thus, it will be harder to match the original wrap in which case you may be advised to change over the whole wrap.
