The best varnish ever!


As a kid, I learned how to varnish from my father who was a wooden boat nut. I can not think of a summer day that he didn't have a brush in his hand.Now 50 years later (ouch) I am working on my own boat projects and put my childhood skills to use. Not until I found this amazing varnish was I able to get the perfect results I seek. I use an epoxy roller on the bigger surfaces and follow that with a lightly held brush to break up and bubbles left by the roller. The marks settle out to a perfectly smooth surface as if it was sprayed. Not only are the results better than any varnish I have used, but this varnish if fun to use, it is so silky smooth.

I have used this product multiple times.


I've used this on a front door, a swing and an outdoor table. It is, in my opinion, the best marine varnish available.

Gold standard -tough to beat


Very easy to use, flows well. A small amount of Interlux 333 in the final coats makes it even smoother. All the local pros around here use

For professionals only


I am refinishing a 17 foot wood core kayak with 3 additional coats of varnish , this varnish does not brush on easily and the brush strokes will not level out, added 10-12 percent thinner and still had brush strokes. Bought Interlux Schooner varnish and fell in love, easy to brush on, no thinner needed, brush strokes completely disappear, dries to touch in a couple hours, only drawback is it needs to be applied as thinly as possible to prevent sagging and runs.

I have used this product before and had outstanding results.


I used the product to seal a new pair of snowshoes that I built this winter for my wife. The product is waterproof, UV protected, extremely durable and remains flexible in all conditions and temperatures. I have a chair to build for outdoor use and I plan on protecting the wood with a coat of the varnish. The product is rather pricey but worth it in performance and looks.

I would not buy this product for furniture


Seven Coats!!!!! Yes this is not a spelling mistake. It took me 3 days to put one coat on half of my teak furniture. After the first three coats your are supposed to sand. If the virus wasn't happening right now there is no way I would have the time to follow the directions on the can. For the rest of my furniture I bought the Lust product which does not require sanding. It should arrive today.
