[collapse title=”What are the benefits of tinting my vessel?”]

If you are looking to protect the interior of your boat/yacht, increase privacy and comfort adding window film if right for you. Tinting the windows of your vessel will protect the interior by blocking ultraviolet rays. Without window film, your interior is exposed to destructive UV rays that fade and deteriorate the interior of your boat/yacht. By adding window tint to your vessel you can also increase privacy and comfort.

[collapse title=”Will adding window film affect radio signal?”]

When adding window film it is incredibly important to use a film that doesn’t contain metal otherwise a film with metal will affect the radio signal. We use Hüper Optik® ceramic film because it is the only metal free and dye free film on the market. In our years of experience we have worked with every film available and we have discovered Hüper Optik® to be superior in quality that other films on the market. Poor quality films can disrupt GPS , cellphone, and other signals.

[collapse title=”How about DIY boat / window tint installation?”]

While many times people want to install window film on their boat themselves, we do not recommend it. Installing window tint on boats and yachts requires practice and skill. while you might be looking to save money by doing it yourself, there are too many things that can go wrong. What we often see when we are called to do a repair job after a botched window film installation is that customers have damaged the seals, cut trim, and scratched the glass of their vessel. While initially customers might have thought that installing window tint on their boat / yacht would be cheaper – they normally end up spending a lot more money to repair the damage done. Additionally, most DIY films are low grade and when your boat is constantly exposed to sun, the low grade film will not perform the way a professional grade film does and it will likely result in the low grade film failing, ie: peeling, cracking, turning purple.

If you don’t use a professional grade window film, you won’t benefit from the reduction in heat and UV rays, glare reduction, and you can block all radio and GPS signals . We highly recommend having a professional company install window tint on your boat / yacht. Our master installers have over 10,000 hours of experience installing film and we warranty material and craftsmanship for life.

[collapse title=”If I tint the windows on my boat / yacht will the film eventually turn purple?”]

The film will not turn purple. When a film turns purple, it is because the film is a low grade film with dye in it. We use Hüper Optik® dye free and metal free film. All of our work and material is warranted for life by us and by Hüper Optik®.

[collapse title=”What type of film do you recommend I use on my boat/ yacht?”]

Because of the harsh conditions of the marine environment it’s important to use the best quality film for better performance. The film we recommend is Hüper Optik® ceramic series. Hüper Optik® ceramic series will block 99.9% UV rays and protect your interior from the damaging sun rays. Hüper Optik® ceramic series is the only dye free and metal free film on the market it. A dye free and metal free film is important because it will not discolor or turn purple and it won’t block radio signal. Films with dye and metal eventually discolor or turn purple and the metal blocks radio signal and GPS signals.
