Serving the boating industry since 1997 we have learned from all our interactions. A lot of boat owners have become accustomed to transactional relationships. The conflict consistently arrises when maintenance falls short of consistent.

Often these relationships experience communication breakdowns. Expectations rarely are met with thorough education. We have maintained that

"it's the way we beautify boats that separates us!"

Our social media has become a very popular destination for education in the boat detailing arts. A global following of boaters, brokers and niche contractors have benefitted from our transparency and ability to "ASK SPIKE" in an unfiltered absolute fashion.

We are the recreational boat service company that is absolutely focused on boat detailing but always happy to chat boat 365 days a year with no limit to the questions that provide the resources to getrdone on the water, everyday!

How do we Getrdone?

A typical new customer will acquire a boat that is 10 years old, often older. The reset process can be all very expensive and take a wack of time to get done.

This is the problem, the exchange of time and experience for dollars is complicated by budgets and mother nature making all the real decisions on when stuff will actually get done.

We are also complicated by boats that will be beautified fully once every 5 years. Sometime we will do all the polishing, painting , wood refinishing, deep interior detailing and then the seasonal upkeep is contracted to a cleaner, not a detailer.

The solution :

Hire a professional detailer to continuously care for your investment in recreational boating. We help our clients realize their most important goals. With years of experience and unmatched credentials, We Beautify Boats by Spike is uniquely equipped to make a significant and lasting impact on clients’ lives. We know our clients’ needs are always changing, so continually seek new and improved ways to serve them.

Most boats are not well maintained.

Most boat owners do not hire anybody to be their detailer.

Most boats only wax, never compound, polish or perform maintenance washes and add protection throughout the season.

Most boats have never had their bilges or engine room detailed, ever!

Our boats are the stars in every marina and yacht club in Ontario because we do more, service more, care more, travel more, equip better, train more, read more, learn more constantly to deliver a higher quality service and yes, we charge more.

Our boats also sell for more because its ultra obvious that our boats have been cared for in an exceptional way.
