I have been busy refueling a nuclear power plant and am ready to get out on the water. I have been looking at getting someone to do the spring clean up and wax for me. What is everyone paying for a full boat detail? I talked to the mastercraft dealer and they said 650 which I think is way to high. What do you guys think is reasonable?

I work in the power industry but not nuclear. Sounds like you would appreciate "The Shutdown Song"

I like it. Good way to break up day 18. Only 7 more to go. Just don't know if a clean boat the first time out is worth a day of shutdown.

Depends on what you're having done, how bad the boat is to start with and the degree to the level of detail they do the work.

Past that dealers tend to be quite a bit more expensive but if you have any other work that needs to be completed they're a one stop shop and add that convenience. Around here the going rate on an X2 is about $450 in the spring and about $350 off season. You're in full detail season now so I would expect the rate to be on the higher side. The X30 is also a bigger boat so I would imagine it might be a bit more.

I just paid 350 but had quotes as high as 590.

You're lucky! My dad has a two outage year this year. I think they're just only on day 8 or 9.

I paid $350 for a full detail by a private guy and he compounded all the gelcoat inside, outside and on top. In comparison my dealer charged $575 the year before. And the private guy did a much better job.

I do my own detailing. Regardless, a buddy offered me 1K to do his for him. Based on the number of hours it takes to meet my own MCOCD standards, that's about half the price it should be.

after hearing all these prices, I have decided I am on the wrong website. :)

We have a two outage year as well just almost done with the first one and can't wait to spend some time out on the lake. So I am seeing that 550 may not be as crazy as I though. Thanks guys for the inputs. Guess it is time to blow some of that outage cash.

Luckily my pops has me as his detailing B****. Lol. Enjoy the outage, I know how much my dad hates it.

$20-30 a foot for inside and out including paint correction (compound, buff and polish). Another $500-700 for Ceramic-Pro/GTechniq type coating (full hull keel up).

If you have done a full compounding polish and wax on a boat you realize that $500-1000 is reasonable. Esp if they do the bottom of the hull also.

Its a full 1.5-2 days work for me to do a good job on mine.

Took me 8 hours to do a full detail on my Xstar at the end of last season.

6 hrs. was spent on the waxing process alone, using Colonite 920 cleaner & 925 wax.

Results were rewarding and I enjoy the process but I would spend $500 in a heartbeat for the same done by a professional.

I did a full 3 stage plus ceramic coating on my boat two weeks ago.. took a whole weekend and did not do the bottom of the hull or interior yet
