Our Story

Blue Water Marine Paint has manufactured proficient antifouling paints, primers, single part topsides, thinners, and varnishes since 1959. In 2019 the company was acquired by New Nautical Coatings, Inc., which moved manufacturing from New Jersey to its 8-acre corporate campus in Clearwater, Florida. With a redefined direction, Blue Water’s focus is on one goal. Creating high-caliber marine coatings that don’t cost boat owners a fortune to use. It’s a simple philosophy, but to us, it’s the guiding principle behind every product in the Blue Water line up.

We believe that every boat owner deserves value and that capable marine coatings should be affordable to everyday boaters. That’s why Blue Water Marine Paints match the very best coating characteristics using formulations that deliver great performance without high costs. Our marine coatings stand up to barnacles, blistering UV sunrays, saltwater, corrosion, slime and wide temperature variations. Which makes them the perfect choice for sailors and powerboaters alike.

But don’t take our word for it, the proof is in the painting. We’re working to produce products that meet your needs yet don’t empty your wallet. And we don’t just say our specialty marine coatings work well, thousands of happy boat owners have proved it. So, you can trust we’ve got the good stuff for your vessel.

American owned and operated, Blue Water Marine Paints fulfills the American tradition of providing great performance yet being priced to please.
