Does anybody know where I would go to get a wrap put on my boat?

I'm working on a big A level sponsorship that will pay me much more and wrap my boat for me, but i think it would be good to get a good person to do the wrapping

also, how much am i looking at spending? over 1500 dollars?

i am not sure

well theres no WAY i would pay 15,000 for a boat wrap, thats almost half of what my boat is worth!!

i highly doubt its over 3,000 at the MOST - i may have lowballed saying 1500 but financing isnt a problem... people finance everything!

I can pretty much assure you that its over 3000. You gotta realize the "paint" they use is a very expensive paint that will adhere and not chip off easily. Also, you have to figure into the graphic work they over lay on it. Chances are that will all be airbrushed unless your sponsor has some very large decals they can offer which can be applied and then clear coated. Chances of that arent too high though. More than likely your wrap will have to be taped off and custom done... and that my friend is where they nail you. Just think of how much t hey charge to paint a car. Sure you can get a cheap paint job at like Earl Shive for a couple hundred bucks but thats cheap 20 bucks a gallon paint. If you want multiple layers of wet sanded deep acrylic with multiple layers of hand wet sanded clear coat so that it looks like you can jump into your paint job you are talking thousands of dollars. Id guess the lowest you can possibly get your boat wrapped for is going to be 5000 bucks and thats gonna probably be cutting corners and using cheaper paint.
They once showcased a wrapped boat in Bassmasters that was done AMAZINGLY! Because of the wrap the boats value went up from around 30,000 to over 100,000 dollars.


You may be able to get an idea of prices from one of these two sites:

I will keep looking for more info but this is all I could find at the moment.

i e-mailed boatwrap.net (thanks rodney by the way) and i gave them a very detailed idea of what i wanted, and the guy just emailed me back and said that the design i want would have to be custom done and it would take a while, but they can do it for me for between 2000-2600 dollars, which is about what I expected...

well at least i know now, if i have to cross that bridge

There are numerous sissues involved with a boat wrap. The complexity of the artwork, the materials used, the method of application. It is also important to know how many wraps the company has done and for who. In addition, will they take it off for you if need be or will you have to do it.

It is quite a complex process.

These two have pretty good reps in the industry. Then again, depending on your boat, you might wish to go through the boat manufacturer.

im working on a sponsorship with Wells Fargo Financial... they sponsor nascar and ballparks all over the place, so obviously the marketing budget is HUGE

we are working out kinks, but i have a pretty good "in"

for those of you who live in the northeast, i'm sure you have heard of Raymour and Flanigan Furniture... they are the largest furniture retailer in the northeast and do business exclusively with Wells Fargo for all furniture financing

not only do I work at Raymour and Flanigan, but my dad has been there 25 years and is a Vice President...

needless to say, for this sponsorship - he is my honorary "Manager" :):):)

I am sure that some type of arrangements can be made through your sponsor (ifn ya have one or 2) otherwise yes it would be coming out of your pocket. They do an excellant job from what I have seen. I fell in love with Kiriami's boat. It was just awsome.
