Marine 31 How to Protect your Boat's Interior Informational

Congratulations! You have a boat!

You are one of the few lucky enough to enjoy the open seas at your own disposal. Since you are one of the fortunate ones, let us help you keep the boat in its most pristine condition! Or perhaps you have been a little less than lackluster when it comes to taking care of your favorite vessel… Maybe you let your boat sit a little too long in the backyard or haven’t visited it in the harbor in a while. No matter the reasoning for wanting to keep your boat clean, it’s important to remember that the interior needs just as much attention as the exterior. After all, unless you decide to take a dip in the water, you’re going to be spending most of the time on/in your boat.

So, let us help you! Here are the best Marine 31 products to keep your interior looking fresh!

Marine 31 Port to Starboard APC

Marine 31 Port to Starboard All Purpose Cleaner

This boat has been sitting in a backyard for just over a year. What’s great about the Marine 31 Port to Starboard All Purpose Cleaner is just that, it’s good for all purposes! This biodegradable marine cleaner rids your boat of dirt, grime, black streaks, common stains and even mildew. When diluted properly, it can be a miracle worker on vinyl, carpet and upholstery. The best dilution ratio for carpet and upholstery is 1:10 (cleaner:water). This product is also useful on rubber, fiberglass, inflatable boats, sailboat dodgers, boat covers and even decks.
