Marine Polytrol used to revive a narrowboat

We have recently received some photos from a happy customer that used Marine Polytrol to revive their narrowboat – did you know that Marine Polytrol can be used on boats too?

What is Marine Polytrol?

Marine Polytrol is a deep penetrating oil which restores the original color and appearance of dull or tarnished plastics, metals, tiles, painted surfaces and more! It penetrates the surface, re-wetting the pigments to restore their luster and color which has been lost through exposure to sunlight, rain and pollution.

Marine Polytrol is perfect for use on fiberglass and gelcoats, so is perfect for use on boats. This customer used Marine Polytrol to revive her narrowboat and the results are amazing!

Here is what Tsai has to say:

Polytrol was recommended to me by many other boaters. The paintwork on my 58’ narrowboat was sound but dull and lifeless.

Polytrol is easy to apply with a brush or soft cloth. After about ten minutes, I just buffed it with a clean cloth. Amazed at the results and I’ve had lots of positive comments.

We think you’ll agree her boat looks fantastic!

Is it easy to use?

Marine Polytrol is very simple to apply and can be used on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. All you need is a cloth or soft brush and you will have beautiful results in just 10 minutes!

It dries to a tough and long-lasting flexible finish which does not leave a film – this means it won’t peel or flake. Marine Polytrol is available in 0.5 liters and 1 liter tins.


We have many previous posts about Polytrol being used for all sorts of things. We have highlighted just a few of them below:

  1. Hi there,

    I am in Australia and would like to know more about Marine Polytrol. Now I own a 35-foot Duncason yacht and yes she is old. She was built in 1973 and had a life of racing and cruising. Now her hull is red Gelcoat and she has been sitting in her dock for nearly eight years not being used before I purchased her. Her Gelcoat is faded and has white streaks down her from the white deck. At present, I cannot afford to move her onto the hard but I want to give some life back to the red hull. I can only do this whilst she is in the water (Seawater) and what I am wondering is can I use the Marine Polytrol on the hull whilst she is in the water if I take care?????? and do it on a calm day early in the morning???? The marina pen she is in is quite protected. Any and all info would be wonderful and also the pricing of the Marine Polytrol. I have also attached the facebook page where you can see some photos of her – Aquarius V. Thank you. Max Clark.
