Imagine Window Film on Your Boat

We were recently contacted by the owner of  “IMAGINE”. His new 450 Prestige looked awesome inside and out.

Let’s be honest, buying a new boat rivals the purchase of a new car by a long shot. So, amid the exhilaration, who thinks about “what could be wrong with my newest pride and joy”?

It didn’t take long before the owner of IMAGINE was imagining a much cooler interior and far less glare to contend with… was there something overlooked?

Indeed there was….

With out having window film installed on her glass, IMAGINE and all on board had zero protection from the sun’s adverse effects.

 

Known as marine window tinting specialists and highly recommended by yacht owners and esteemed marine brokers throughout Florida, we were expertly qualified to eliminate these problems…. and then some.

Because of it’s durability and performance in harsh salt-water environments, we chose to apply Panorama 35 Ceramic film on IMAGINE.  Once finished, the owner and his family never imagined how much more they would enjoy cruising in their new yacht!

As predicted, Panoramic 35 bought a wave of benefits:

  • greatly improved IMAGINE’S interior comfort by rejecting up to 58% of total solar energy blasting through her untreated glass
  • increased her air-conditioning efficiency with much appreciated less fuel consumption
  • low visible reflectivity provided occupants with clear views and reduced the annoying glare that was one of their chief complaints
  • eliminated the potential of interruption with IMAGINE’S navigational systems
  • decreased risk of skin cancer and would help to preserve IMAGINE’S beautiful interior from fading with 99% of UVA and UVB rays blocked

Heat-shrinking ceramic film on the exterior of a boat’s windshield is one of many techniques that we’ve mastered.

Imagine, Panoramic 35 Ceramic window film eliminated the heat discomfort, cut down glare for increased visibility, provided safety against harmful UV radiation, added fuel efficiency with less a/c running AND added aesthetic sophistication to an already fabulous looking boat.

Since we are in high demand for projects out of the local area, window tinting Tampa has extended installations throughout Florida and beyond.

Window Tinting Cuts Down a Yacht of Heat

No one is more subjected to discomfort and dangers from the sun than boat owners.

High Impact Glass Solutions install window film to reduce heat and glare

Intense glare, extreme  interior heat, and the dangers from UV rays  adversely effect fun days on the water.

But we put the “fun” back into boating!

It takes three elements to bring long lasting, successful solutions to eliminate these problems for yacht owners:

  • installation skills gained from years of hands-on experience
  • being a dealer that offers the best performing marine films
  • a personal drive for perfection no matter what it takes to overcome each boat’s challenges.

One of our recent marine projects was for a yacht that first needed film removal.  Having the wrong film installed that can not withstand a harsh water environment over time is a common mistake many boaters make. Such was the case here.

After removing the faded, purplish looking film, we proceeded to apply Solar Gard’s Panorama Ceramic 35.

With failing film removed, the new Panorama Ceramic 35 delighted the owner with results he hoped for and more:

  • greatly improved interior comfort by rejecting up to 58% of total solar energy blasting through untreated glass
  • increased air-conditioning efficiency with less fuel consumption
  • low visible reflectivity provided clear views to the outside and reduction of glare causing eye strain
  • no more interruption with operating navigational systems
  • decreased risk of skin cancer and helped to stop  the fading of beautiful interiors with 99% of the UVA and UVB rays blocked

Exceptional durability makes Panorama Ceramic film the optimal choice for use in coastal environments. Every boater can enjoy cruising the waterways with comfort, safety, protection….and fun!

Marine Window Tinting For Cooler Boating

We have much to boast about. For starters, the Tampa and St. Petersburg area is a true boater’s paradise offering unlimited opportunities for exploring sheltered bay waters or venturing out into the Gulf of Mexico.

However, all is not perfect….even in paradise! Along with boating pleasure, mariners must deal with some rather distressing problems:
extreme heat discomfort, sun glare obscuring views, and the potential of serious skin damage and fading of interior fixtures caused by UV rays.

Acclaimed yacht dealers and boat owners in areas surrounding Tampa/St. Pete, Sarasota, Naples, and Fort Lauderdale, continue to call our team to eliminate these issues. Why us? Because we apply the industry’s most elite marine window film and have the expertise to install it with precision on any boat, any size, anywhere in Florida.
