Protecting your vessel from the elements has always been the key to a longer-lasting shine. With Gtechniq's Marine System, it's like having a new boat every day! Over the years, boat owners have become accustomed to maintenance schedules which involve harsh compounds followed by short-term protection from waxes and other sealants. Here at Maritime Yacht Services, we have made it our mission to enlighten owners about better-performing protection solutions.
Our Gtechniq MarineSystem products are subjected to the coating industry's most rigorous test programme. First, they are tested for destruction in real-world applications, and then the world's leading research labs and marine original equipment manufacturers do the same. Gtechniq's MarineSystem outperforms current market leaders by between 200 and 300% in these tests.
In our video below, you can watch a demonstration of its self-drying and hydrophobic properties.
We can coat the following:
Hot tub and Swimming Pools
Bathrooms and Galleys
Teak renovation and coatings
HOT TUB, SWIMMING POOL AND INTERIOR GLASS RESURFACING, REPAIR AND CERAMIC COATING
A High-Performance Pool Finish for a cost-effective way to refurbish Residential & Commercial Hot Tub and Pool Resurfacing, Refinishing and Repair.
Hot tubs and pools can constantly be used on private and charter yachts. Exposure to ultraviolet light, sustained oil, chemicals, sand and extreme temperatures damage the surface finish. This barrage of toxic products leads to rapid degeneration of the gelcoat surface. Using the latest techniques and materials, we offer an on-yacht service to provide full restoration, returning the hot tub or pool to its as-new condition. We can either work with the crew onboard or can arrange to remove all the hardware, such as jet nozzles, lighting filters and controls, before our specialist team arrives.
The process follows:
Prepare the existing gelcoat
Apply the laminate with vinylester resin
application of matching gelcoat is then applied if required
The exact profiling and finish are then obtained by our specialist technicians and are ready for the application of our IGL ceramic coating system.

Why not get all your windows, mirrors and bathrooms ceramic coated?
The Technology Behind The Science.
Gtechniq smart surface science combines the latest in fields such as nanochemistry and supramolecular chemistry, with rigorous real-world and laboratory testing. The premise for all Gtechniq products is to hit a sweet spot of performance, ease of application and price. We apply the same principle to our whole range of products. Advances in silicon technology driven by a high global demand for faster and smaller processors have thrown up a wealth of new and innovative materials, offering a range of solutions that were never possible before. Gtechniq has the experience, connections and motivation to bring to the market, class-leading products, proven to improve every aspect of surface care.
As a Boat Owner, Captain or Manager you know that well-maintained and protected surfaces not only look better but also mean considerable savings in ongoing maintenance.
However, making a well-informed choice isn’t easy. At Gtechniq our fearless and relentless passion for innovation, means we only bring to market products that deliver proven and significant performance gains over existing market leaders.
This means you won’t find us offering generic polymers, waxes and cleaners. Instead, you’ll find a comprehensive product range based on some seriously smart surface technology and up-to-date chemical engineering.
The Gtechniq MarineSystem offers the following advantages over other market-leading marine systems:
Best UV protection
Best gloss and colour stability
Longest product life
Best stain resistance and self-cleaning
Best scuff resistance
Best waterline stain resistance
Best surface restoration
Below you can find the various range of protection we offer, with options to suit every budget. Although we advise that the more significant the investment, the longer the protection will last.
Ceramic Base forms a protective barrier that is extremely hard and exceptionally durable, making it very effective at preventing swirling and minor scratching from poor washing techniques. With excellent gloss retention, Ceramic Base becomes the functional surface of the gel coat.
Ceramic Top offers unparalleled dirt-repellency, gloss and surface slickness. It has an exceptionally strong anti-static function that helps to keep surfaces dust-free and also contains a strong UV filter to help to prevent premature fading. Ceramic Top uses a permanent chemical bond to either bond directly to your boat's gel coat or topcoat, or a previously installed layer of Ceramic Base.
Rinse-On Ceramic is a fast and simple way to protect all your boat's gloss surfaces. The optically clear, non- yellowing and UV-repelling coating crosslinks to any surface such as gelcoat, topcoat, glass, metal, ceramic or Plexiglass. The product is extremely versatile and can be applied to cool it hot surfaces. Rinse-On Ceramic can be used at every wash down with a single application listing up to 3 months.
Why Use Gtechniq Marine Glass & Plexiglass Coat?
Gtechniq Marine Glass & Plexiglass Coat greatly reduces the surface energy of glass and plexiglass surfaces, thereby making water form into tight droplets that readily roll off the surface. This improves visibility by both quickly clearing these surfaces of water and leaving less water residue on the surface to dry out as water spots.
Why Use Gtechniq Marine Metal Restoration Polish?
Gtechniq Marine Metal Restoration Polish safely and easily restores deep lustre to any metal. It can be used on stainless steel, brass, copper, aluminium, gold, silver and other precious metals. Because it contains no ammonia or other harsh chemicals or aggressive abrasives, the polish delivers an immaculate blemish-free finish every time.
Why Use Gtechniq L1 Leather Guard?
L1 Leather Guard forms a durable abrasion-resistant matte finish which offers the best ever protection against abrasion damage, UV rays, dye transfer and other discolouration. With added BioCote® antimicrobial technology, treated surfaces will kill 99.9% of bacteria. Friction protection is particularly important on seat bolsters, seat piping and any other high-wear areas. The anti-stain function is most relevant for light-coloured leathers which are typically stained by dark-coloured fabrics such as indigo jeans. L1 gives 3 to 12 months of durability depending on how high-wear the area protected is.
Many leather products market themselves on how they feed leather, when in fact this is not needed. Modern automotive leather uses synthetic fat liquors which do not evaporate. Any product that is designed to feed leathers will not be absorbed by modern automotive leathers but instead, remain on the surface attracting dirt which will then act as an abrasive foreshortening the leathers finish.
The Interior Cleaner provides outstanding care and maintenance for the inside of your boat. Precisely, the Marine Interior Cleaner consists of a water-based degreaser and surfactant that will remove dirt and grease from any surface. It also includes an additive that traps and absorbs odour-causing substances and an anti-bacterial agent that is a dirt-repellant. We use interior cleaner on any internal fabric, including leather, Alcantara, and man-made or natural fibres.
The Fabric Coat is the perfect solution for cleaning boat fabric, providing excellent protection against mould, mildew, bacteria, microbes, and everyday stains. We use it for re-weatherproofing sails, weather clothing, and awnings, highlighting its versatility. The interior and fabric cleaners are essential for your boat maintenance and ensure that your vessel is in the best possible condition as you take to the water.
