From Routine Maintenance to Emergency Repairs, Detyens Boatyard Services Keep You Afloat.

Marine Pressure Washing

Over time, boats can accumulate dirt, grime, and even algae, which not only looks unsightly but can also cause damage to your vessel.  That’s where our team comes in. Our marine pressure washing service uses top-of-the-line equipment and eco-friendly cleaning solutions to ensure that your boat is sparkling clean. We’ll start by thoroughly inspecting your boat to determine the best cleaning approach. Then, we’ll use our high-pressure washers to blast away all the dirt, grime, and even stubborn stains from your boat’s surface. We’re careful to use just the right amount of pressure to ensure that we don’t damage any delicate parts of your vessel.

Sand Blasting

For best results, our experts will thoroughly inspect your vessel and develop a course of action that takes into account any sensitive areas. Why is marine sand blasting considered to be a better method than other types of surface preparation? In addition to being faster than traditional methods of surface preparation, sand blasting is gentler on the underlying materials. While a piece of sheet metal will generally hold up well during sanding or grinding, the softer metals used in boat hulls can get dented if they’re not coated first with something like fiberglass. For high-quality marine sand blasting services, look no further than our crew.

Marine Painting

Looking to give your vessel a facelift? Whether you need antifouling paint removed and reapplied, topside painting, or varnish restoration and refurbishing, we take painstaking care in the preparation process, ensure controlled conditions, and pay attention to every detail to ensure stunning results every time. Your vessel will look years younger and absolutely gorgeous.

Water Blasting

Water blasting is a more environmentally friendly option than traditional cleaning methods that rely on harsh chemicals. Our eco-friendly cleaning solutions are safe for both your boat and the environment. In addition, water blasting is a faster and more effective method of cleaning than traditional scrubbing or power washing. We’re able to get into all the nooks and crannies of your boat’s surface, leaving behind a clean and smooth surface. Our marine water blasting cleaning service is perfect for boats of all shapes and sizes, from small pleasure craft to large yachts. Plus, we’ll work around your schedule to minimize any inconvenience to you.
