I have a x2, i dont use the carpet. I,m wondering if i could an interior teak floor? Does anyone have doene this? I,ve seen boats with interior teak and it looks fantastic! (i wish i knew how to post pictures beacuse i have a few samples!)

Any ideas where to start? Cost?

Thanks

Cost will be high and maintenance will be a constant if you want it to keep looking nice. You might consider that faux teak they use on the newer platforms.

Frankly, for the greatest longevity, carpet is king.

Teak is nice if you are in salt water....carpet not so much.

Try this site.....they make custom panels to fit from patterns.....all boat applications.

I saw an Epic Boat at the boat show that had the "Sea Deck" Teak instead of carpet. IMO it look really nice and somewhat practical. Also I see Nautique uses a lot of the Faux Teak covering as well.

I agree with these statements.

I have the faux teak on my platform and it looks good and feels good but i have noticed that it doesn't like dirt very much and it is hard to clean. For the interior, with extra foot traffic and food, i can imagine it would stain a lot. Removable carpet is the way to go.

Don't they put the faux teak in the 300?

I installed nuteak on my dad's 14' Scout fishing boat. Install was done by myself with basic tools and a little patience.

Cleaning is easy as some mild detergent and a power washer. Easy as the Mastercrafts have a self draining liner.

The CONS..... You need to glue down with 3M adhesive... aka once it's down it is never coming up!

I have the 205v and seriously considered doing bow floor in teak. I think your idea would look pretty cool. the bow doesn't get that much traffic in my boat and it is stored indoors. Search YouTube for teak installation.

Great info here guys (for some reason including the picture posting, i have no idea what i was doing wrong)

Anywho, looks like i,ll stay with the white flooring!
I dont want to go faux nothing, if i,ll do it it has to be real thing, but im also lazy when it comes to maintance.

I do have the carpet, but down here in Florida Summer, it get soak pretty fast! (try controling a dozen kids under 100 degrees and 90% humidity)

Thanks for the feedback.

I hear the life of that stuff is around 5 years, too.

For the teak and mahogany look in a ski boat, check out the Nautique Paragon. Pretty hard to find though.

I want to say there were only 9 of them a few in the burgundy and a few in dark green. But I don't know the actual numbers for sure. CC had a company on the eastern seaboard overlay that teak and mahogany over an early 90s (93 IIRC) SN. They are quite the lookers.

That looks good. Though, if you need a power washer, I wouldn't put it into the "easy" job bucket ;)

i saw the faux teak interior in another manuf's boat... looked really, really good. i have a heck of a time drying my carpet out, and i think this would be a better option.

it does get a little warm in the sun. I will warn you.

Faux teak will last a long time, it's pvc rubber/plastic. Nuteak, permiteak, tekdeck are all similar products.

should run about $10/sq foot

You know, I bet some faux teak floor in an S&S would look pretty cool... Keep the sides carpeted, then throw some teak looking flooring down in the passenger area. I'll bet that'd look REALLY classy.

And a tower too. You do like stirring the pot, don't you.:rolleyes:

I was actually somewhat serious there... You don't think that'd look nice?

Tower = no no... but I don't see a problem with a custom looking interior that is tastefully done.

Perhaps I'm still revolting from the crap-wood cover in the floor of the I/O I had for a little while prior to getting my '77.

Here is a Centurion Carbon Pro with a fuax teak. You cant see the floor very well but you get the idea.
