Crownline Boat Decking and Flooring Options
Decking and Flooring Overview
Crownline is a well known and trusted brand, with a classic line-up of boats with a wide variety of options. Their many offerings include outboard and stern-drive boats, bowriders, cuddies, cruisers, and deck boats. Areas that are enclosed under a canopy may be viewed as an internal or external space and customers will decide to use a marine carpet or decking option based on this fundamental decision. 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 EVA foam. 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. EVA foam is a popular option too being cool and comfortable to walk on but it is not as robust as the other decking products. Crownline owners sometimes choose to depart from more traditional colours and caulking.
The Crownline is typically supplied with a basic marine carpet. However, American Style Sportsboats have recently been moving towards woven vinyl as a standard option. There is a growing colour choice in this material so interior styling is now more variable according to customer tastes. New boat customers or those choosing to refurbish their interiors sometimes choose to upgrade and have an exterior decking product fitted. Other great looking and cost effective options are teak carpet.
