    I would expect it polished and waxed for me if I was buying a new boat.

    What I would have loved to have done, if I could have found anybody in France, is those hi tech nano micro coatings

    There are dozens of these nano technologies now. They are usually applied by a team of experts and give a long lasting finish that only has to be wiped down or hosed off to return to its original finish. Fabrics are also waterproofed by it

    I personally can't recommend anyone because I've no firsthand experience. In the world of caravans and motor homes Paintseal Direct is well known and they advertise on Telly. But there are probably newer better ones out now

    If it was my brand new boat, I'd be tempted to A-Glaze it.
    I'm not sure who does it on the S Coast these days.

    Before you apply A-Glaze or any other product, have a read of this protection product comparison thread.

    http://www.ybw.com/forums/showthread...ion+comparison

    You will then be armed with enough information to make a much more informed decision on the best product to use, how difficult or otherwise it is to apply, and how well it lasts compared to the other products available.

    FWIW I would definitely apply a protection from new. There's no better time to do it. The gelcoat will probably never look as good as when new, so you'll want to retain that look as long as possible and delay any deterioration from weather and uv.
