Top 5 cleaning products for a boat in tip top shape

There are so many boat cleaning products in the marketplace it can be hard to tell which are the best for you.

As summer approaches and you want your boat looking a million bucks as she cruises down the Broadwater, we decided to ask the expert team at Australian Boating Supplies (ABS), the chandlery onsite at Gold Coast City Marina and Shipyard (GCCM), which were the best in their opinion.

Here are their top picks for products which are easy to use, great results and will keep your boat in tip top shape this summer:

Kanberra Tea Tree Wipes

Tea-tree oil is antimicrobial, antifungal and has long been used for its health benefits. This handy resealable container dispenses environmentally friendly tea-tree wipes which are ideal for cleaning and deodorizing all your boats surfaces and prevent mould from growing as the weather warms.

Snappy Teak-Nu

Snappy Teak-Nu does as the name suggests.  This two-part system cleans and protects your teak decking extending its lifespan.  It can take even the most dull and stained decks to be as bright as they were when the boat was first delivered.


Star Clean is a unique metal polishing product.  Simply apply with a wet rag, wash off and allow to dry, leaving a protective film which retards water and leaves you a brilliant shine.  It saves you time, effort and can be used on stainless steel, copper, brass, aluminium, chrome and gold.

Magica Rust Remover

If you do end up with rust stains, the team at ABS recommends Magica Rust Remover. Conveniently brought in either a spray or gel, you simply spray or brush on, wait a few minutes and rinse off. Safe to use on almost any surface fabric, steel, fibreglass, rigging and sails, ceramics sporting equipment and upholstery.  It is a quick and easy system to keep rust stains at bay.

Pump up your fenders for free

ABS offer clients a complimentary service to inflate fenders.  They are such an important part of the equipment onboard and you certainly wouldn’t want to enter the peak boating season without your first line of defence.

So, take up ABS’ free service and have a chat with them about the best product to keep your boat in tip top shape this summer.

GCCM prides itself on being home to the very best contractors and marine businesses.  The team onsite provide you with the best services, craftsmanship and in the case of ABS, the best products for you and your boat.
