Get The Best Yacht Paint Protection With Permagard

Founder Luc Lefebvre d’Argencé began Permagarding yachts from the Benetti shipyards in Livorno, Italy, through the French Riviera, all the way to Palma di Mallorca in Spain, over 25 years ago. Just like our aviation history, our marine roots run deep in Permagard. With a product that can bring the most exceptional protection and shine for all painted and gel coat surfaces, let us tell you why Permagard is the best solution for your yacht paint protection needs.

Our company is also ISO-9001 certified, meaning all our USA-made products adhere to the strict standards set by the Quality Management System. This is imperative for us to bring you the most outstanding product quality with zero defects. Boats and yachts encounter harsh environments all over the world, so having a high-quality paint protection product is vital to protecting your asset’s appearance.

How Does Permagard Work?

Permagard is an advanced Reactive Polymer coating designed to be applied directly on top of painted surfaces and gel coat surfaces. Permagard is the only marine paint protection product that can protected 100% of your clear coat, base coat, and gel coat, that is also approved by Viking Yachts. Once Permagard has been applied to your yacht, you will be able to enjoy the countless benefits of a Permagarded vessel. Exceptional protection, lustrous shine, and breezy maintenance are the 3 key factors that separates Permagard from our competitors.


Our advanced Reactive Polymer coating utilizes a chemical bonding process known as cross-linking. This results in a strongly linked chain of ionic bonds on the treated surface, producing a sacrificial layer of 4 microns of flexible thickness to provide durable protection and shine for your yacht. Some of the many environmental factors that Permagard protects against include, UV rays, acid rain, engine exhaust, salt laden air and water, extreme temperatures, corrosion, grease, solvents, sand, and barnacles, among others.

Remarkable Shine

Not only will your vessel be protected against the forces of the harsh sea, but so will its appearance. Permagard greatly enhances and vivifies all painted surfaces it bonds to. Once treated by a certified installer, Permagard renders your yacht a rich and deep gloss, producing a bright, vivid shine. Protecting 100% of your boat or yacht’s clear coat is what gives Permagard the depth of gloss and shine that you cannot find with any other marine product. Your yacht will assuredly turn heads at the shipyard when being launched into the bay with regular gloss readings in the mid to high 90s, when it’s protected with Permagard.
