Congratulations to Swan 53: 3rd in-class finish in Mackinac distance race

Vrijheid, a Swan 53, recently had its extensive teak deck refinished in Teak Life UV Gray. Vrijheid took 3rd in class in the 2018 Bayview Mackinac Race, and the teak deck proved invaluable during sail changes with the deck awash.

The owner cruises extensively with his Swan and values the UV protection provided by Teak Life UV, extending the life of his deck indefinitely. Whether it’s on a classic racing yacht or family cruiser, Teak Life proves itself in maximizing the value and reducing the maintenance normally associated with a teak deck.

New 2018 Color for Teak Life

The 2018 season kicked off with a new, exciting natural tone – Teak Life UV Tan. Most recently applied to a Pieter Beeldsnijder-designed 18.3m motor cutter based in the Netherlands, the boat was cruised extensively this summer in fresh and saltwater around the North Sea and Holland, putting Teak Life UV to the test.

The owner not only appreciated the new color, but he also found that he could keep the decks clean much easier compared to other treatments and products. Although Teak Life is known to last 50 percent longer than competitive treatments, Teak Life UV can be touched up quite easily, only requiring a light cleaning and maintenance coat. This approach means less damage to the teak from sanding or scrubbing, extending the life of the deck and making maintenance easier.

The easier way to keep your teak deck beautiful

There is an indescribable feeling setting foot on a teak deck; maybe it’s knowing that sailors going back to Lord Nelson’s time conquered the seas on the same type of deck, or it simply might be the soft warmth you feel every time you step back on your yacht. Whatever the reasons, along with the beauty and history of teak, comes the practical cost and maintenance of teak. Maintenance for teak can be much easier with the right formula.

Cleaners and other treatment products can create that sought after “bleached” deck appearance, but the frequent maintenance cycle and cleaning methods mean a teak deck is being worn down at a rate faster than regular wear. Now, you have a better option. Teak Life UV offers a formula that not only maintains the aesthetic appearance of teak available in 5 different tones, but also provides greater protection to teak; reducing maintenance cycles and indefinitely extending the life of a teak deck.
