A mobile boat detailer is trained specifically to provide boat detailing services. This detailer travels to the customer’s home or wherever the boat is located to provide these services.

This is because the two jobs require different skills, materials, and tools. Additionally, the interior of the car is made from different materials than the boat, thus making the cleaning process quite different.
