Marine Yacht Varnish is a classic alkyd varnish, formulated to the highest Dutch standards. Marine Yacht Varnish has been the coating of choice for discerning boatmen from Schoonhoven to Singapore for over one hundred years. This varnish is used by many of the finest Northern European yards. Marine Yacht Varnish is easy to apply and produces an unusually high build. This coating is suitable for use over most other varnishes, both traditional and urethane. We suggest that when applying this varnish over an existing finish, test the compatibility on a small, unobtrusive area. Marine Yacht Varnish has excellent weather resistance properties and provides a high degree of U.V. protection. Marine Yacht Varnish performs consistently well at every latitude on vessels ranging from luxury yachts to fishing boats. .75L container covers 126 square feet.
