TotalBoat Elixir Semi-Gloss Enamel Marine Paint

TotalBoat Elixir is a water-based enamel finish suitable for a wide range of interior and exterior applications. Great for topsides, coamings, cabin ceilings, lazarettes, lockers, doors, cabinets, trim, bulkheads, galleys & more.

Elixir's marine-grade formula is more durable than conventional 1-part paints. Powerful UV inhibitors prevent fading, while its forgiving, semi-gloss finish hides imperfections better than high-gloss finishes. Fast-drying, self-priming paint can be applied directly to properly prepared fiberglass, wood & metal surfaces.

Superior abrasion, moisture & stain resistance, no harsh fumes, plus easy soap & water cleanup also make Elixir ideal for use on cabinets, doors, trim, paneling & baseboards in your home.

Available in quarts, in 7 popular colors. Includes 2 paint pots, 2 stir sticks & 1 pr. latex gloves.

TotalBoat Elixir is a unique, self-priming one-part water-based enamel that helps topside surfaces defy the elements in harsh marine environments. There's no magic potion here, just a tough, moisture-resistant, UV-stable, marine-grade formula that prevents mildew, fading, chipping, and peeling, while prolonging the life of new surfaces and restoring beauty and life to old, worn, tired-looking fiberglass, wood, and metal above the waterline.

Elixir's gorgeous satiny semi-gloss finish can also add beauty at home—try it on cabinets, doors, trim, moldings, and baseboards, for an attractive finish that's truly easy to maintain. If it gets dirty, just wipe it down with a little mild soap and water. If the surface gets scratched or damaged, a little prep work and a few touch-up coats of Elixir will make the damage disappear quickly and easily.

Nice color


Very nice color and goes on easy.


Fredericksburg Texas


Good Paint


Easy to work with, the bag makes it easy to pour out a small amount without making a mess.

Great bang for the buck


Really nice heavy duty paint that applies easy and, most importantly, lends itself to easy clean-up! Always make a mess when you paint? I know you do (I do too). The easy soap & water clean-up along with how well this paint holds up has been the perfect combination. I've used it on a few projects now with no complaints.

Durable finish


Ordered for an outdoor mailbox post. The finish is holding up great after the first couple months of spring storms and all day sun. Easy to apply and easy clean up.




Vibrant & Durable


I've now used Elixir paints twice on a few shop furniture projects for my woodshop where I need a durable finish to hold up to the wear and tear. Elixir fits that bill being a marine grade paint, and the colors really pop. Red is my favorite, but they are all bright and vibrant.

Yellow tint in Snow White...


Not great coverage. Had to put on multiple coats >2 on top on primer and wasn't happy with color. Generally like Total Boat products, but found this inferior to wet environment enamels.


Stamford, CT


Bad coverage


I realize it says it needs no primer but it took me three coats to get a nominal finish




Not self priming


After reading the product claims, I convinced my wife that we should use this on our kitchen cabinets. I sanded most of the wood varnish off and applied two coats of Elixir. Yes allowing to dry between coats and following the application instructions. Unfortunately I had to completely sand off the two coats apply two coats of Total Boat primer and 4 coats of Elixir. Finally the cabinets are beginning to be one shade of white. Based on man hours and amount of product I would not recommend this for kitchen cabinets projects.
