Quantum DIY Boat Paint Genius Bucket

The Quantum DIY Genius Bucket includes everything needed to paint your boat's hull. Imagine not having to buff, polish, and wax for 7-10 seasons. It's the industry's most advanced marine coating, with the highest gloss, gloss retention, and UV & stain resistance.

Kit includes Quantum 99 Topcoat, the proven DIY 2-part polyurethane paint system that outshines and outlasts paints applied by professionals with special equipment.

Get the same smooth, beautiful results with just a roller and no tipping, and the finish is even repairable. The time and money you spend every year sanding, buffing, polishing & waxing can now be spent on more leisurely pursuits, so make a bucket list and get to it.

Genius Buckets are available in Clear, Oyster White, Matterhorn White, Snow White, Cloud White, Sea Foam, Jade Mist Green, Flag Blue, Palmetto Pride, and Ice Blue colors.

Safety is an important concern when prepping and painting a boat. Quantum Genius Bucket paint, activator, reducer, and surface cleaner require the use of proper personal protective gear, including a vapor respirator with organic vapor cartridges (not just an ordinary dust mask), eye protection, and gloves.

Color Note: When Rolling/Brushing dark colors such as Black Magic, Flag Blue, Carinthia Blue, Palmetto Pride, Aim High, Navy Blue, and Charleston Green we recommend applying a final topcoat of 99-BA1-Clear. The following day after final application of Topcoat Base color, sand with 220-320 grit sandpaper, clean and apply 1-2 coats of Clear.
We recommend applying a first coat of White prior to the color application for the following colors: Citrus Green, Federal Yellow, Lemon Yellow Sun, PCDC Orange, and Oohrah.
