TotalBoat-486490 Lust Marine Varnish, High Gloss and Matte Finish for Wood, Boats, Outdoor Furniture (High Gloss, Gallon)
(as of Mar 17,2023 00:26:20 UTC – Details)
A Glorious Finish in 1 Day
TotalBoat Lust is the first true, one-part marine varnish that allows multiple coats in one day, with no sanding required in between.
Classic Varnish with a Modern Twist
Lust is Different – and Better!
TotalBoat Lust is the FIRST one-part marine spar varnish that allows rapid recoating without sanding in between coats. Its exceptional durability makes it a great choice for brightwork, trim & more. Traditional marine varnishes require tedious sanding between coats, and their thin-film build means 15, 20, or even more coats required. Then there are the marine wood finishes that mimic the look of varnish, but are no substitute for the real thing. Only TotalBoat Lust gives you the beauty & durability of a classic European spar varnish AND the easy application of varnish-alternative wood finishes.
Fast-Dry High-Build Formula Lets You Finish Varnishing Faster
TotalBoat Lust has a linseed oil modified polyurethane formula for smooth flow-out. But unlike the others, Lust lets you recoat in 1 hour (at 72 F), letting you apply up to 5 coats in one day. Start and finish your next varnish project in a single weekend! Whether you choose Gloss or Matte, Lust’s forgiving formula ensures a beautiful finish with exceptional clarity & durability.
Important Application Notes for Lust Matte
Lust Matte is not intended for use as a sealer (base) coat. For a low-sheen finish with maximum clarity, we recommend using Lust Gloss or Gleam Gloss for sealer (base) and build coats. Finish with a topcoat of Lust Matte, which can be thinned with TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100 for improved flow.
Key Product Features Cures to a lustrous amber finish. Recoat in as little as one hour. No sanding necessary between coats. High-build formula reduces number of coats required. Exceptional finish clarity & durability. Can be thinned for more coverage. Available in Gloss or Matte finish.
Apply Up to 5 Coats in 1 Day
Lust has a viscosity similar to traditional European varnishes. But unlike traditional European varnishes, it can be recoated in as little as one hour at 72°F. And again, without requiring sanding between coats.
High Gloss Finish
Lust High Gloss dries fast, hard, and wet-looking. The finish is smooth and durable, with a gloss level so shiny it looks wet, even when it’s dry—making it ideal for brightwork. The gloss improves, layer by layer. A total of 6-8 coats provide the best protection and the highest gloss.
NEW! Matte Finish
Our most popular marine varnish now comes in a gorgeous satin matte for a more understated, lustrous finish that lets the natural beauty of the wood speak for itself. Matte finish shown here on TotalBoat customer Eric Bohman’s ’67 Old Town restoration.

It all started simply enough. As boaters, we wanted better stuff for our own boats.
Even our favorite products, the ones we’d come to rely on, had room for improvement. It’d be nice if they could hold up longer, cure faster, coat better, apply easier, and—since we all know boat ownership creates a mini maelstrom in your pocket—cost less. So we took everything we knew from 35 years of customer feedback, combined that with our own boating knowledge, and after a few years of rigorous R&D, TotalBoat was born. Launched, rather. By boaters, for boaters.
Need help? Our TotalBoat Tech Team is a bunch of boat owners who really know their stuff. So whether you’re trying to figure out what to buy or what’s the best solution for your particular project, they have years of hands-on training and experience—and a passion to help you succeed.
