Why use a different cleaning product for every job on board when one will take care of most of them? Vistal removes stubborn dirt from gelcoat and all the other surfaces of your boat.
"One pot does the lot"
Vistal can be used all around your boat to remove the stubborn dirt, stains and marks that are commonly found on boats. You can use it to clean and restore the shine to fibreglass gelcoat, painted and varnished surfaces and even Plexiglass. It also cleans stainless steel fittings leaving a microscopic coat of glycerine which gives them an even shine and forms a protective layer.
Boat owners also like to use Vistal to remove dried water spots on Plexiglass windows and the windows of sprayhoods and cockpit enclosures to remove dried water spots. The glycerine in Vistal repels salt water so it just beads off and keeps it cleaner for longer. It can be used in the galley to clean hobs and corian work surfaces too, and it's great for cleaning fenders, upholstery, headlinings and rib tubes (Hypalon and PVC).
A 500g pot is so long-lasting that it is enough to clean all of a 27' (10m) boat from the waterline up including the deck, fittings and inside the boat too, so we can say with confidence that one pot really does do the lot!
"It's the best I've ever used to clean the boat (Hunter Channel 31 Yacht)." Fred Bishop.
The main job Vistal is used for by boat owners is to clean and restore the shine to gelcoat on the hull and all around the boat. It removes the chalky oxidisation and yellowing caused by prolonged exposure to the sun. It also removes brown waterline stains, algae, lichen spots, exhaust marks, black streaks and rust stains from the surface of GRP without scratching it.
The glycerine coat left on the surface gives a even, streak-free shine which will give some protection but commercial waxes or polishes can be applied over it.
Vistal does not contain oxalic acid as all branded gelcoat boat cleaners do but it works just as effectively as oxalic acid through the combined action of its ingredients and the special sponges.
The sponges get into all the tight corners, the troughs of non-slip decks, the grain of vinyls and the texture of RIB tubes. Our customers confirm that Vistal does not make decks more slippery.
