TotalBoat Gleam 2.0 Marine Spar Varnish features a premium tung oil formula, with a phenolic resin base and added UV inhibitors. It's ideally suited for clear coating on interior and exterior surfaces requiring maximum water & UV resistance.
New Gleam version 2.0 has improved overcoating & cure times, yields medium build per coat, with excellent flow-out, leaving a smooth, durable surface. It can be scuffed and overcoated faster than before to build gloss, as needed. Use xylene as a thinner only when spraying. For brushing, thin with TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100.
Available in high-gloss and satin finishes that are weather resistant and easy to work with over new wood and previously coated surfaces.

And the Satin varnish provides the same excellent level of UV protection as the Gloss varnish, so it's ideal on exterior as well as interior surfaces.
Gleam 2.0 Gloss and Satin formulas are available in individual Pint, Quart Kit, 2-Quart Kit, and Gallon Kit sizes.
You told us you love Gleam's velvety satin finish, but want better clarity. So we've put together a combo kit containing 1 quart of TotalBoat Gleam 2.0 Gloss Varnish and 1 quart of Gleam 2.0 Satin Varnish that lets you build gloss coats to protect and showcase the wood grain, then finish with a couple of coats of satin to get the smooth, beautiful, non-gloss finish you desire. For the gloss/satin combo kit, select TB-GLEAMCOMBO-K from the product list.
Bare wood, especially plywood, is very porous and needs to be sealed before applying build and finish coats of varnish. If not, the initial coats of varnish soak into the wood, requiring more varnish (and more money) to apply enough build coats until the surface is uniformly level enough for the final coat of varnish. With unsealed oily woods like teak and mahogany, the varnish's viscosity will not allow it to penetrate the wood grain and adhere properly, which will eventually cause it to lift and ruin the finish—and all your hard work.
For this reason, the first few sealer coats of varnish are typically thinned in order to penetrate and seal the wood. These sealer coats take time to apply, time to dry, and must be sanded between coats. Now there's an improved way to apply sealer coats.
Introducing TotalBoat Wood Sealer, it's easier and faster than using unthinned varnish for sealer coats. It seals bare wood grain and smooths the surface on all types of wood, doesn't require sanding between coats, and dries more quickly than thinned varnish. And unlike other wood sealers, it contains UV blockers that protect your beautiful varnish finish down to the wood surface. TotalBoat Wood Sealer is clear, so it enhances the beauty of the wood grain and the varnish finish. TotalBoat Wood Sealer (sold separately) is compatible with 1-part varnish, and is ideal for use with TotalBoat Gleam 2.0 and TotalBoat Lust varnish finishes. Refer to the Gleam 2.0 Tech Data sheet for details on using TotalBoat Woods Sealer with Gleam 2.0.

Thought it would have been better to spray

It is thin, so you have to take steps to ensure you don't let it run on you. Dries fast and that helps with the surface uniformity if you allow for it. Applied 6 coats to a small sailboat rudder and dagger board. Looks great. I'll have to wait until the water softens up to see how it performs late this spring.

I don't recommend this product. It's super thin like water. Runs are impossible to prevent. I tried brushing on and spraying. The Behr spar urethane from Home Depot is exponentially better and about half the price.

The product was everything that all the videos say it is. The product worked great and made my project turn out wonderfully.

Love the finish. Sprayed well. Dries fast - able to apply 3 coats in a day. Finish seems durable. Touch ups were easy and blended well. It's now my go to for all outdoor furniture.

I am a novice. Wanted to make a live edge outdoor bar on my new deck in Maine. Used this product and it came out better than I expected. When applying I found that the first coat looked not great and slightly rough. After the third coat it felt so smooth. I'm very proud of how it came out with my skill level. Used Total Boat Flexible Epoxy to fill all holes in board and the dark brown amber, almost black looks amazing.

Great, except it runs. I'm using it on my boat, so not all surfaces are flat.

Total boat gleam system is easy to work with and produces professional quality results,

I havent had too much experience with other varnishes out there, but this one is awesome enough that i bought another gallon already, and likely will get another soon. This already has become the single go to varnish for the commercial boats i work on and basically dont plan to use anything else again.
