Shipping & Marine Professionals Trust Hotsy's Boat Pressure Washers for Cleaning Quickly

For over 40 years, Hotsy has helped keep commercial vessels, docks, decks and equipment free of the damage caused by constant exposure to salt water, oil, algae and debris. Hotsy pressure washers eliminate the need for scrubbing by hand, saving you time, labour, money and downtime and have surprising environmental benefits as well.

Many memories of family fishing trips or boat trips end with a long and tedious session of scrubbing and wiping down the boat hull and deck. No more! Pressure washing is a fast and easy way to clean the hull and deck of a boat, and even carpets and other surfaces. However, to wash these different surfaces, you need a pressure washer that is adjustable and capable of delivering cleaning power without damage. This is just one of the reasons why when you go to a Vancouver-area marina or boat yard, you’ll often find a customized Hotsy boat pressure washer in use.

Choosing the Right Boat Pressure Washer: Lower Mainland Boat Owners’ Tips

Typically, the Hotsy boat pressure washer at Lower Mainland docks is one of our gas-powered mobile units that can deliver about 2000 to 3000 psi (about 2 to 2.5 gallons a minute). A variety of spray tips to give a more angled and gentle spray on more delicate surfaces and attachments such as rotating brushes make even quicker work of routine maintenance. Boat owners tell us that using heated water for pressure washing with one of Hotsy’s biodegradable detergents breaks down grime and lifts stains more thoroughly. After pressure washing, we recommend waiting a couple of days for thorough drying before applying sealant.

Many boat owners with private docks also pressure wash the dock with their Hotsy pressure washer at the same time as they clean their boat, getting rid of slippery algae, oil, mould, mildew and other safety hazards.

Our customers tell us that the professional clean that Hotsy boat pressure washers deliver pays off in a multitude of ways, including:

  • More recreational time on the water, less time spent at the dock, cleaning the boat by hand
  • More enjoyment of the boat when it’s clean and presents a glossy appearance
  • More frequent cleaning because it’s so quick and easy to do
  • Less downtime for commercial boats
  • Better sale price at resale

Another benefit of regular pressure washing of your boat with a Hotsy pressure washer is that you can clean off contaminants and invasive species that attach themselves to your boat and get into the next lake or river to which you travel. A 2017 issue of the Yellowstone Insider, reported that Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming has placed two Hotsy high-temperature pressure washers at key entrances to the park to prevent out-of-state boats from bringing zebra mussels, an invasive species that is spreading rapidly across North American waterways, into the Yellowstone ecosystem. Hotsy encourages all boat owners to be aware of their impact on the environment and to keep their boats clear of chemical contaminants as well as non-native fauna.
