What Is The Best Vinyl Boat Flooring?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: August, 2020

There are many reasons why vinyl boat flooring is so popular. Aside from it being attractive and affordable, it is also versatile and durable. There are many color and design options, as well as different sizes and thicknesses. It is easy to install, slip resistant, mold resistant, mildew resistant, and easy to clean. There is also typically a wear layer that resists stains, scuffs, and scratches. 

While there are so many benefits, there are also a few disadvantages. It does get hot after many hours in the hot sun. It is also difficult to remove - especially when adhesive is used during installation.

Despite any shortcomings it may have, vinyl boat flooring is among the best options on the market. Vinyl is durable, comfortable under foot, noise reducing, and affordable. It also has a waterproof surface, which makes it great for pontoon or other boat use. Greatmats offers many vinyl boat flooring options that are suitable for any marine setting, from a wood fishing boat or trawler to a yacht, cruise ship, house boat, or other boat deck.

Greatmats - for all of your boat flooring needs!

Greatmats has so many boat floor options to choose from that go far beyond the vinyl options listed. Perhaps you have a smaller space to cover, or, perhaps you have a tighter budget. Greatmats does feature other flooring solutions that may be more suitable for your project.

For example, foam boat flooring is a great marine solution, as it provides a non-slip surface that will not absorb water. Greatmats has some quality foam boat flooring solutions from which to choose, all of which are cushy, soft, attractive, and slip resistant. Foam boat flooring provides a softer footing than hard surfaces, and it is often anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, non-toxic, and mold resistant. It can be more economical than other flooring options, also. 

Rubber floor tiles also work in boat settings. If you have a fishing boat, you’re in luck; these tiles are easy to install and are designed to withstand the heavy weight of fishing equipment and constant foot traffic, and they also dampen noise so the fish will keep coming in. They have durable, long lasting surfacing, and they are simply to keep clean by sweeping and vacuuming. They offer a smooth but non-slip surface that will provide years of quality boat flooring.

Greatmats also has other flooring options like PVC tiles and carpet squares that have been used successfully for boat flooring. Again, regardless of your preferences and budget, Greatmats has a product that will work for you!
