Need marine carpet and linings for your Gold Coast or Brisbane boat?
Many Gold Coast and Brisbane boaters choose to line their boat’s roof, walls, floor or dash to improve the look of their boat and to provide more protection from sun and water. When lining your boat’s interior there are three main choices, vinyl, macrosuede and marine carpet. These materials are usually glued directly onto the hull, bulkhead or deck lining of the boat, but for more flexibility you can fasten lined panels to your boat’s interior, so they can be removed if required. Which material you choose for your boat’s interior will depend on your boating needs and personal style.
Most Gold Coast and Brisbane boaters choose to install marine carpet. Not only does marine carpet improve the aesthetic value your boat, it is also far more comfortable. Uncovered wooden or fibre glass surfaces tend to strain your legs and radiate heat, especially for boaters who sit on their boats for long periods of time. Marine carpets also prevent slipping and provide better traction.
When it comes to marine carpet, you need fabric that will stand the test of time. Marine carpets are made from synthetic fibres that are resistant to water, staining and general wear and tear. They are easy to clean and dry up quickly to prevent mould and mildew growth. Once installed, these durable carpets can be treated with protective sprays to prevent fading, due to UV light exposure.
The way your carpet is fixed will depend on where on the boat your carpet is placed. For outdoor marine carpet we recommend binding, whereas for indoor marine carpets we recommend overlocking, or button on carpets.
