OK in Nov 2011 I paid to have my boat detailed.
This included 100% of the exterior cut, polish and wax.
The boat gelcoat was to look brand new.
The quote wasnt cheap at $5500. I was shocked at the price so I asked and they expected to spend something like 200 man hours on the detail.
My expectations were very high, and they were met completely. My boat looked brand new. With a cost of somewhere around 3% of the total refit costs I was incurring, I feel that $5500 was the best money I spent.
So, what large boat owners expect is perfection. They are willing to pay for it, and they will be happy if you deliver work that exceeds their expectations.
