Dulux Trade Exterior Yacht Varnish is a clear coating for the decoration and protection of all exterior woodwork. Its high build, full gloss finish will last for up to 3 years if used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.

  • For the best results, ensure that surfaces to be varnished are dry, clean and sound.

    Previously Treated Wood

    1. Remove all loose and defective coatings and previous paintwork, if necessary stripping back to bare wood
    2. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1970s paint surfaces they may contain harmful lead
    3. Thoroughly rub down all wooden surfaces in the direction of the grain to remove any grey, weathered wood and surface sheen from previous coatings
    4. Take care to remove all traces of sanding dust prior to varnishing
    5. Wood that has turned grey / silver as a result of sun damage can be treated with Osmo Wood Reviver Gel

    New or Bare Wood

    1. Seal all bare wood with 2 coats of Dulux Trade Aquatech Preservative Basecoat Plus (BP), including any new or bare replacement beading, then wipe off any excess basecoat from surrounding paintwork
    2. Fill any surface defects, open joints etc with a suitable exterior wood filler
    3. Replace any missing glazing material - do not use linseed oil putty for glazing
  • Always do a small test area before starting any project to test adhesion and end result. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.

    For Health & Safety reasons relating to all solvent-based paints, spray application is not recommended. This product should not be applied if air or surface temperature is below 5℃.

    Stir thoroughly before and during application to ensure a consistent finish.

    1. Apply 2-3 coats of Dulux Trade Clear Yacht Varnish with a synthetic brush only
    2. Lightly sand (denib) between coats
    3. Allow 24 hours to fully dry


    If the finish starts to wear over time, simply apply a fresh coat of Dulux Trade Yacht Varnish following the Preparation and Application instructions above.

    Nice product by Michael D Payne

    Leaves a great finish. Only problem I ran into was "what is brush cleaner" had to google it to find out what it contained. Also temperature limitations for application would be good to see.
