Refurbishing your boat seats and upholstery will transform your boat
After years exposed to the sun, wind and rain, your boat seats and upholstery can look a little worse for wear. The amount of damage to your boat seats, will determine whether you need to patch up or replace your foam and or reupholster your upholstery. While patch repairs are cheaper, they can end up looking amateurish and tacky. In most cases, boat seats should be completely reupholstered.
The most common signs of wear are small cracks, tears and holes. Even if your seats are still intact, over time they will discolour and loose their original lustre. If you’re boat seats are showing these signs, then it’s time to reupholster. When reupholstering boat seats, it’s important to choose quality marine vinyl that is long lasting and resistant to salt water, sun and sand.
Reupholstering your boat seats also gives you the opportunity to update the look of your boat. Marine upholstery comes in a range of different colours. You can choose to match the existing colours and tones of your boat seats and upholstery, or start from scratch. You can go neutral, go nautical or go wild and make a statement. If you’re planning to seel you boat and want to get the maximum profits, reupholstering your boat seats is always a good investment.
To prolong the life of your boat seats and upholstery, we recommend using a marine quality cleaner, such as CleanAShine.
