Boating Tips: Marine Flooring Options
This is your standard boat flooring option. When a boat leaves the factory this is what the flooring is typically like. It is textured to help you stand level and prevent slipping. It is easy to clean and is sort of considered “old reliable”.
One of the cons of this type of flooring is that it tends to be a bit hard on your feet, especially after a long day on the water or on days where conditions are less than ideal.
A classic flooring option, before the advent of composite building and design materials, many vessels were built from or prominently featured teak. Today, teak is not as widely used as it once was. This has to do with a number of reasons including caring for wood in a marine environment and the overall expense. However, for a classic and sophisticated look, using teak for your boat flooring is a great bet.
Foam and Composites
An extremely popular option for marine flooring today is foam and faux-teak style flooring. These are soft on your feet, can be customized in different colors, designs and include logos. Some companies are actually producing boats with this type of flooring standard.
