What varnish is recommended for the hull?

I am wondering if anyone has a product recommendation for the hull of my ship? I know I should be looking for a matte finish, but should I try to find a varnish, poly, whatever? Should it be diluted? How many coats are typically used? Sanding in between?


The local hobby store sells Matte Varnish, but I'm not sure if it is meant for coating over a painting.


As always, any help is appreciated.


Thank you,
