Fine Paints of Europe Marine Yacht Varnish is a classic alkyd varnish, formulated to the highest Dutch standards. Marine Yacht Varnish has been the coating of choice for discerning boatmen from Schoonhoven to Singapore for over one hundred years. This varnish is used by many of the finest Northern European yards.
Surfaces: Marine Yacht Varnish produces an exceptionally durable, high-gloss finish on most wooden surfaces. It is not recommended for decks.
Marine Yacht Varnish is easy to apply and produces an unusually high build. This coating is suitable for use over most other varnishes, both traditional and urethane. We suggest that when applying this varnish over an existing finish, test the compatibility on a small, unobtrusive area. Marine Yacht Varnish has excellent weather resistance properties and provides a high degree of U.V. protection. Marine Yacht Varnish performs consistently well at every latitude on vessels ranging from luxury yachts to fishing boats.

Do you have a distributor for this product in the Arlington, Virginia area?
I was most happy with having the varnish shipped from Jamestown......
Has anyone use the Marine Yacht Varnish on kitchen cabinets (inside a home)?
We used the FPE Marine Yacht Varnish on our Mahogany entrance door and side panels........they are subject to half day of intense Florida sunshine here in Sarasota....The door gets almost too hot to touch.The product has been on for about a year....and looks as good as the day we applied it. It is probably the best varnish I have ever used. I have given your contact information to several people, who were impressed with the product.I would not hesitate to use it on kitchen cabinets. I'm not sure that the high gloss finish is what Matthew S is looking for.
No, we used this poduct on exterior doors and it is holdingup better than any other product we have ever used.
I have used the Epifanes for my front door, it seems to last only one year, is there a product that you have that may last longer, it mahogany?
a lot depends on which direction the door faces; n. or w . is the best,preperation is still the main job. some mohog has a little rosin or oilwhich will hinder good adhesion. the marine yacht varnish solved most ofthe problems we have in the mtns. of n.c..i use it on clear cedar, andironwood. good product.
Seems good, but worth the $$?
I am using this varnish on the transom of our 60 yr old wood cruiser. After two years, the finish seems fine and I am re-coating this year. I've used the Fine Paints enamels on the decks and the interior and absolutely love the stuff. Applied carefully is creates a wonderfully creamy and color saturated coating.The varnish seems more transparent and brighter on the wood than the Pettit stuff I have used -I suspect it is the unusual violet tint.
