Corvette Boat Decking and Flooring Refurbishment Options
Decking and Flooring Overview
Corvette Luxury Motor Yachts are long-range luxury motor yachts renowned for being robustly built along with traditional style interiors. Some are fitted with exterior teak decks that eventually need replacing along with traditional teak and holly soleboards. The customer is faced with the choice of replacing with expensive and less available natural teak or using more readily available products. Corvettes built without teak decking are sometimes given a facelift with new decking, especially when a new owner has taken delivery. If you are at all unsure then contact us for advice.
Exterior decking products considered to be good options are PVC synthetic teak, composite cork or plain vinyls. PVC synthetic teaks looks the most realistic when comparing with a natural teak deck but it is not the most environmentally friendly and does get hot to walk on. Cork composite is a completely natural product and is more pleasant to walk on. Plain vinyl is a good budget solution and can still look great. It is also an easy to lay DIY option, especially supplied ready cut to a template.
The Corvette typically has a mixture of teak and holly styling at the wheelhouse and a bound carpet in the sleeping cabins. Teak Carpet, Vinyl, Woven Vinyl or Cork products for better sound insulation are worth looking at within the wheelhouse area. Cabin areas may be less important in terms of choosing a dedicated marine flooring product if they are not likely to get wet, damp or heavily exposed to UV sunlight.
