Ronseal Yacht Varnish

Our Yacht Varnish is a traditional outdoor varnish great for long lasting protection on bare or previously treated wood. It’ll protect your wood from the weather so it won’t turn grey in the sun, and it’s flexible so it won’t crack, peel or blister.

 Before You Start

Make sure it's a clean dry day (above 10°c) and the wood is clean and dry.

If you've varnished it before but it’s in bad condition, remove the coating to get the best results.
Check you’re happy with the finish by trying it on a small hidden area. Because it’s clear you can still see your wood, but it may darken it’s natural colour.

Prep - Stained or Varnished Wood

Sand down to help the varnish stick, then clean with white spirit and leave to dry.

Prep - Bare Wood

Sand down to remove any loose wood, then clean with white spirit and leave to dry.

Using Yacht Varnish

First, give the varnish a good stir. Then brush on in the direction of the grain. You’ll need to do 2-3 coats leaving 8 hours between each coat. Before the final coat give it a light sand and wipe with white spirit.

Usage Areas: All smooth planed exterior wood. Not suitable for decking. 
Compatibility: New or previously stained wood.
Clean Up: Clean using white spirit or paint brush cleaner.
