Jason Gardner, vice president of global
marketing and advertising for SeaDekĀ®
Marine Products in Rockledge, Fla., also
notes that there has been a move away from
traditional staples in marine flooring, such
as carpet, molded and non-skid. "When we
came on the market in 2004, carpet was kind
of king," he says. "Everyone had carpeting-
either glue-in or snap-in."
SeaDek products tout a closed-cell
polyethylene/ethylene-vinyl-acetate (PE/
EVA) foam with an acrylic-based high-bond
pressure-sensitive adhesive that, Gardner
says, is comfortable, durable, easy to clean
and doesn't absorb water. "But we also focused
on the aesthetic element," he says. "We make
our product by laminating one sheet on top
of another, and when our CNC machines cut
into the foam, it exposes the bottom layer so
we're able to create some really interesting
surface textures."
On the OEM side, Gardner says earth
tones are most popular, including browns
and off-grays, from the interior coverings to
the flooring. "On the aftermarket side, pretty
much anything goes these days," he adds. "We
still see a lot of earth tones in the aftermarket
but we also see a lot more people stepping
up and doing some of the bright colors as an
under-laminate color-so the surface is maybe
neutral but there are nice pops of color coming
through the surface layer."
Gardner notes that he's seeing people
starting to bump up the creativity in design
elements. "Whether it's topographical maps
or laser patterning, boat builders are breaking
that teak line mold," he says. "Designs don't
have to be just a faux teak foam product-they
can be something completely new, such as
hexagon patterns or waves."

A QUESTION OF COLOR
Selecting the right flooring and fabric is a
balance between embracing the latest/greatest
and sustainability. Unless boat owners have
unlimited funds for yearly makeovers-and
time for the boat to be out of the water-
it's important to select fabric and flooring
coverings that will both inspire and stand
the test of time. And it matters whether the
boat is being designed for the OEM market or
aftermarket. "If you're working on a custom
boat for a client, it's up to them as to how
