Anyone regret going with white interior?

I recently purchased a ‘07 X2 that is in good shape, but hurts the eyes a bit. You may have seen it under the Fugly X2 thread... it has a green wrap with a black / green interior.

Anyway, I wanted to ask if anyone has suggestions on interior colors? We pulled some of the wrap off last night and the gel coat underneath the wrap is a dark blue with white above the rub rail.

I love the look of white as a base color for interior, but I wonder if I will regret it later on? Is there any colors you may have regretted using due to fading or difficulty to keep clean?

Also, for accents, I’m considering the new textured vinyl that has a “carbon fiber” look to it, my wife is concerned about it being a little ROUGH to sit on. I thought that was an odd concern, but then she implied I have more padding on my rear than she does...

Thanks in advance for your input!

Color's I'm leaning toward...

This was just one of the photos sent to me from Jonathan at Top Performance Marine, but I am liking it more and more. I would modify the accent colors slightly to match the gel coat on my boat.

I have a 2013 with the the white interior "carbon fiber" look. It is by no means rough on the skin and do not have any stains after 5 seasons with it. I do wipe down after every use, hit it with 303 a couple times a year and still showroom condition. I will get a mark from time to time but use the suggested Totally Awesome cleaner and it has been bulletproof..

^+1, the white CF style interior skins are bulletproof, feel good, and look sharp.

Love our white interior. Haven't noticed any stains after 3 seasons. We also wipe it down after each use. The CF vinyl is my favorite.

Here is a photo (not the greatest shot), but ours is all white...

I have white vinyl in my current boat after two boats of light grey/moon beam. I like it - feels open. It doesn't get as dirty as I expected. But we've always been choosy about snacks and have a mesh bag for sandals/shoes.

I think the idea from that demo pic would look awesome in that boat with the correct colors. Personally I think all white may be a bit to much with the majority of the base hull color being so dark. You need to break it up a little bit. The interior in ap77's X20 pulls off the all white very well since the black piping accentuates the lines.

Thanks for the quick feedback everyone!

Sounds like it's a no brainer if we want to go with the white.

ap77... do you like the soft decking on the bow of the boat? I haven't seen that very often but I think it would be nice to have on the bow!

Onyly advice I would give is that if you are planning on keeping the boat longer than 5 years I would not get the newer carbon fiber vinyl. it does not hold up well. I would have your guy install 35oz classic vinyl and it will outlast you.

Yes, I do like the seadek for the bow. We also added it to the gunnel where you step off the boat. Its more comfortable and provides better grip. It also looks good which is a bonus.
