Fort Myers marine window tint costs vary based on the size of the boat. A yacht tinting job will cost more than a smaller boat tinting installation as the price will depend on the amount of windows, the size of the boat windows, and the type of marine window tint used.
Can you tint boat windshields? Yes, you can and you should -- even clear window film can have many of the benefits we'll cover later) and several hundred more for tint applied to all the other windows of the cabin, portholes, hatches, and so on.
Without boat window tint, the sun can pass unchecked into the cabins of your vessel. That means the warm infrared rays will create a greenhouse like effect inside the boat, causing it to bake in the hot sun when at the dock or at anchor and meaning constant use of the air conditioning when you are aboard your boat on warm, sunny days (which are quite common in Southern Florida). So the lack of window tint means interior heat so warm it makes the boat uncomfortable or even unsafe without fuel-draining (and cost adding) air conditioning use due to the sun's hot infrared light.
The lack of marine window tint also means little protection against the sun's ultraviolet light. You wear sunblock on the beach to protect your skin, so why not offer your boat the same protection and block those harmful UV rays with marine window tint. A boat's interior might not be able to develop skin cancer with prolonged UV ray exposure, but it can experience faded and cracked upholstery and hard surfaces, discolored carpets and wood, and an overall degrading of the appearance and quality of interior furnishings and fixtures. Interior UV light damage will leave your boat looking less appealing, curbing your enjoyment, and will damage the resale value, devaluing your investment.
When you're on your boat, whether out on the open water, chugging down the Caloosahatchee River, heading into the harbor past Look Out Pier, or lazing the day away aboard your vessel while at the dock, you want to enjoy your boat in privacy. Without marine window tint, anyone nearby can see right into your cabin, eliminating the comfort and peace the boat brings as a sanctuary for friends and family. Marine window tint can block the view into the boat's windows without reducing the clarity of the view out through the boat, so you can relax aboard your boat or yacht in total privacy even when there are other people just a few feet away.
Along with this added privacy, boat window tint adds safety and security. Though it's a safe and lovely town, bad things can still happen in Fort Myers. Boat window tinting reinforces the windows of a boat, making them highly resistant to shattering whether the glass is struck by a thief's crowbar or a chunk of debris flying through the air during a hurricane. Tinting boat glass can keep your property safer against theft and the people aboard the boat protected against bits of flying glass or exposure to the elements by preventing the windows from breaking apart.
Window tinting your boat can also make the vessel safer by greatly reducing the harsh glare of the sun, making it safer to navigate near shore, near docks, around buoys, and of course near other boats. Window tint for boat windows can also mitigate the night vision damaging effects of shore lights when you are underway at night.
And finally, don't forget how great window tint can make your boat look. From dark sleek yacht window tinting that brings out the style of a luxury vehicle to a more subtle shading that adds a bit of privacy, a lot of solar protection, and some refinement to a family vessel or commercial boat, marine tint doesn't just work well, it can also look great, too.
