If you own a yacht, be it a Hatteras, Regal, or Viking brand vessel, you have made a great investment in a superlative craft. And whether you use your yacht to fish in the warm waters off the long Florida coastline, to travel up and down the Atlantic seaboard, or to casually motor around the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, there is one aftermarket addition that all facts, regardless of brand or of regular use, need to have installed: boat window tint.
Most yachts are sold with a light tint already applied to their windows, but in an overwhelming number of cases, this factory-stalled window tint is hardly suitable for the years filled with sunny days that a yacht that calls the water of Florida its home will see. The modest window tint that was likely on the windows of your yacht at the time of purchase is unlikely to block the harmful ultraviolet light that fades and damages a cabin’s interior and causes health issues for people, as well. And it’s also likely that the base window tint only reduces solar heat gain modestly.
Great marine window tint leaves the windows of your yacht able to block 99% of the sun’s UV light. It also greatly reduces the amounts of infrared light that enters the cabin; blocking this invisible but warming light means a cooler, more comfortable interior. That’s an important benefit for Florida yacht owners, as the hot, relentless sun the state sees on many days can dramatically heat up a cabin under normal circumstances.
Finally, marine window tint makes you and your yacht safer. By increasing the tensile strength of the vessel’s windows, boat window film helps the glass resist cracking apart even when the window is broken. That means no thief can access and burglarize the yacht when you’re not aboard, and it means added safety for you and your passengers when you are.
