Default Ceramic Pro / nano coating for boats

Has anyone had their boat coated with ceramic pro?
Any feedback would be appreciated.

What I have learned is that it is not a miracle coating like you might be told. It requires maintenance touch ups and is very expensive for the initial applications.

Nano is not real, any product that uses that description immediately I dismiss

HAd my boat ceramic coated a month ago. It makes cleaning the boat very easy. Nothing sticks to it. Time will tell how long it holds up, but has a 3 year warranty.


The price is in line with compounding and waxing twice a year for 3 years if it holds up as warranted.

Default Pics of Ceramic Pro

I just had my boat done and could not be happier with the results. Had the interior done as well. The engine cowlings look great!!! Beads water everywhere. Here are a few pics.

I saw it on cars at a recent show. It looks great but required "professional application." No DIY options.
I prefer to apply polish or sealants myself.

I think you're gonna be looking at 130-140 a foot. Or something close to that.

Our 44 and the boss man's 59 are done. Looks awesome, cleans up easy with a dry mop and fresh water. I'm a fan

I had a guy quote me around $400 for a 25 foot boat to do the coating, came with a 3 year warranty. Will be doing it to my onslow once complete,

To do a 25' boat would cost $250 in supplies. Not sure how anyone would be able to coat your boat for that cost.

I would double check that. To apply Ceramic Pro to a 25ft boat you'd be looking at about $3000 give or take. I'm not in the business, but have contacted several detailers on or around the gulf coast and they all were pretty close on price. I should add that this is for a complete detail, inside and out

You can buy Mega Trend by Nanoskin and do it yourself. It is easier then applying wax. The key is the have the surface totally clean before you apply.

I have done my bright work and 9 months later,still beads up.

Is it better then Teflon polish maybe, worth 4 or 5 k to do a boat no.

had the transom, motors, T-Top, and all cushions done to test it for a summer prior to paying to have the entire hull and interior decking done.... Water does bead right off of it and it does wonders on your cushions for keeping them clean.

I'll ask the dumb question. 1) Is this supposed to eliminate the need for bottom painting? 2) Is it necessary to reapply at some interval?

No it will not take the place of bottom paint. They warranty for 3 years, does it last that long? Who knows.
I would think anything over a year in south florida would be great results.

Works well on slick glass, non skid requires a bit of scrubbing to get it clean. Time will tell, but ran 130/ft including trailer.
