vinyl care / protection recommendations

I am brand new to the MasterCraft community and happy to be here. I recently purchased a '93 190 Prostar Blue Stars & Stripes. It is in good condition and I want to keep it that way. Can you advise on recommended products I should use to (1.) clean the upholstery and (2.) condition/protect the upholstery. Thank you.

If you can fin it, a product know as Cherry Bomb that is generally sold to professional detail shops/car care places, is great for cleaning. In terms of protection, my opinion is 303 Protectant. I have used it on all of my boats and it has never let me down.

Good luck.

303 protectant is awesome. Boat bling condition sauce is also really good and is a little less greasy.

The 303 cleaner is terrible. The boat bling vinyl sauce cleaner works well. I use totally awesome from the dollar store. I haven't been able to find anything that works better.

303 is great stuff. I use it for cleaning. But EVERY single time after cleaning the boat (whether I used 303 for cleaning or not) I cover every inch of the vinyl with Griots Vinyl and Rubber Dressing. THE BEST for keeping it moist and therefore more resistant to splitting.
