Vinyl Flooring for your Boat

IMG_1484The carpet on my boat was beyond repair. It was old, tired and would not perk up no matter how many times I steam-cleaned it. It was done. I am really not crazy about carpet on a boat but there weren’t that many options years ago when I decided to replace the carpet with more carpet. This time I decided to do a little homework and discovered a new PVC product from Uberhaus called loose lay, vinyl, narrow planks. They are waterproof, safety click for easy installation and 100% recyclable. When I removed the carpet, the flooring beneath was uneven, raw fiberglass, so I had to install a plywood sub-floor. The planks were easy to cut and fit together nicely. The finished product is spectacular and it makes the whole galley look bigger and new again. The product retails at Rona¬†for $49 per box (18 sq. ft.) and my galley took 3.5 boxes. I have been using it for about two months now and it is holding up really well, even with the dog.

  1. No, it fit flush with the carpet on the sides. I still have to find a matching transition for the front stateroom door – the finishing touch.

  2. Just a quick update. Home Depot now carries LifeProof vinyl plank flooring that is scratch resistant and completely waterproof. A realistic wood-look floor that is now even easier to install.
