What makes The Boat Cleaning Company stand out is the attention to detail. The boat looked better than new because Tony will not stop until every inch of the boat is spotlessly gleaming and meets his own incredibly high standards.

I started using Tony about April 2011 having been recommended to him by a fellow boater on a neighbouring mooring having admired how good his boat was looking. Tony is a great guy, genuine, straightforward & honest. His attention to detail is in my opinion legendary! I had previously used another valet/detailing company & although I was reasonably satisfied with their work, I had nothing to compare the standard of their work to. Now that I use Tony, the difference in the finish is chalk & cheese. The boat always looks immaculate & I regularly receive comments like "It looks like its just come out of the box" - the boat is nearly 8 years old! This speaks for itself. Tony has worked hard to get the boat to a certain standard that makes washing & routine cleaning easier, always resulting in a gleaming smooth finish. Tony is a perfectionist that takes pride in his work which I genuinely believe he enjoys & derives satisfaction from getting that dull flat surface back to pristine condition.

I selected The Boat Cleaning Company for an initial pre-season valet of my Jeanneau 45.2 from a web search in January 2010. Trusting your pride and joy with anyone you don’t know is always a concern, but I needn’t have worried. From the first quick email response I had from Tony to my initial web enquiry, I have been always delighted with his knowledge, service and professionalism. Tony thoroughly restored my boat’s topsides, superstructure and teak deck to a near new condition, despite the fact that she is now over 10 years old! I was so pleased with the results of his work that I retained his services on an ongoing basis to keep her in this condition. One year on I can honestly say I am absolutely delighted with his work. Tony has a passion for results and an attention to detail rarely seen these days and I would recommend him and his company to anyone without hesitation.

I have used Tony Carlow to valet and detail my boats over the last 11 years and have always found his eye for detail in valeting and the overall appearance of the boat on completion to be excellent, as demonstrated by the condition of my current vessel and my previous vessel.
As a consequence, I am pleased to provide this testimonial.
The work he has undertaken for me includes, washing, polishing, teak cleaning/sealing, brightwork and protection.
