Hey Guys,

I just got a few price estimates for a complete new interior for my '97 PS190. I won't list the shop that gave me a quote.. but I think it would be okay to post up the cost estimates. I'm curious what others are paying?

Keep in mind.. I'm not doing the work myself.. I'm under the impression that I will need to bring them the interior components to them and they will install the new skins

Anyway, the quote I got for all new (14)skins, installed was ~$3490.00

I also got a quote to replace/fix just the items that need replacing...1.) the driver seat cushion and 2.)the gull wing door only. Just those two fixes... (if they can match the colors) is estimated to cost $650.00 to repair. I'm concerned they won't be able to match the color good enough for me to be happy.

So any thoughts? Feed back? I've gotten prices for just the skins from the shop everyone talks about on the forum located in Tennessee ? I forget the name? Jim? Anyway, he gave me a cost of ~$1600 just for the skins...

I feel the $3500 price is about $400 bucks too much...just my .02 cts...

Where are you located ? Let me know if you are in the Minneapolis area I got a guy that just redid my 99' 190 upholstery for less than half of that. But I took all the upholstery out and to his shop.

So you got ALL new skins? How did you like the job you got? Are you 100% happy?

The price does seem a bit high to me.. but I hear the quality of work will be satisfactory. That is a concern of mine... the last thing I want to do is try and save $1000+ bucks and then NOT be happy with the result. That would be very disappointing.

I shipped my interior to Viper Custom and they redid seats, side boards, and motor box and shipped back. Total cost was about $2600. For 1990 closed bow tristar. Original design in the redo and included the embroidery. I couldn't be happier with their job!

Viper! That is the name of the place I referred to in my earlier post.. $1600 just for the skins is what Viper quoted me.

So WOW! You're shipping costs and everything totaled $2600. That isn't bad @ all. AND you're 100% happy with the job. Congrats!

One local spot has done repairs where they replaced panels (where the stitching tore out). In essence they didn't need to match as all the tears were along the seat bases (not on MC). Was only about 500$ but I brought them the seats.

Their comment was that the stitching was too fine for vinyl from the factory and essentially was perforation.

If I find the right candidate boat I would not hesitate to improve upon interior design.

$3200 for all the upholstery installed in my X30, including monograms and quilting. Done in TN.

No problem. If Jim is feesible for you, I would definitely go with him. His work is amazing. The interior of my boat looks like a 2013. Once it's wrapped, no one will even be able to tell its a 2002.

Don't know if you saw my earlier message, but I had my 190 closed bow completely re-uphosltered for $1,200. Included building 3 custom new cushions for my rear seat, and new foam in a few of the seats as well.

$1200 bucks? That included materials and everything? High end materials?

I just spoke with my local upholstery shop.. initially we talked about me taking all the interior components out and bring them to their shop. So the price of $3500 means I still have to do a lot labor on my own...

Well after I confronted them with the price quote of $3500 bucks.. they quickly changed their tune and said they would do ALL the labor.. just bring them the boat.....hmmph.. getting annoyed with them..

I may just be giving Viper a call...

$3500 bucks for a 19ft CB boat is ridiculous...IMHO...

I had him match the original colors and material as close as possible for my 99'. Wanted to keep as close to oem as possible. Interior was getting dried out and cracking on high traffic areas.

I met him at the Minneapolis boat show in 2012.

He primarly does boat covers in the summer, upholstery during the winter.

I had him make me a new cover last spring to accomodate my New Dimension tower. Went back with 90% of my interior upholstery this winter.

I paid around 2200 for complete skins with 13' carbon fiber materials for an x9. Did the work myself. Not a really hard job esp in a closed bow I would think.

I had my complete 83 S&S interior redone for $1,000. All seats (including rear bench), side rails, and motorbox. No carpet replacement however. Paid cash money to a local establishment in the hispanic part of town. Those guys like cash, and do a great job.

What the heck...? These prices are all soo low... What are the material costs?

I live in Western Michigan and the local shop told me that $3500 was the market prices for the area. It sounds like me they are a little whack compared to market prices around the nation.

TxsRiverRat,

I see that you even got extra colored beeding on the seams... that kind of custom work would cost me extra...

Did you do the work yourself?

All we did was remove the upholstery. The lady re-did it, and did the piping by hand (her recommendation)... And we re-installed it.

I live in southern California and I am in the middle of restoring my 1984 S&S. There's a guy right down the street from me who came highly recommended. $2800 cash for interior and carpet. Only thing that was salvaged was the fiberglass engine hatch and driver seat...

The local shops in Cincinnati were quoting me between $3500 and $6000. Seriously, $6k! Via youship.com and Viper, I was able to ship my boat to TN, get new carpet and a custom vinyl design done for less than $3k total. Well worth the hassle of coordinating to not only save money but to get top quality work from guys that previously worked at MC.

Look for a technical school or a prison with one. I have one near my home that does all kinds of restoration auto work. Just so happens they have an upholstery shop and they do fantastic work for materials plus 20% or so. Only down side is the wait is a little long and when they call you to do the work they want it right then or they move to the next customer.
