Seacraft Yacht Sales - Dana 24 Changes
Cherry and teak are standard. I do not see a price
difference (there may be). My understanding is that teak costs 4 times that of cherry! No other woods are actually listed as options and I think its about potential owner preference and budget
I appreciate an oiled rubbed finish over a varnished finish. I also am thinking of mixing some woods. I like a light interior and thing dark trim may add some class. Keep in mind it is offset with a white background.
I am a little cynical regarding soft woods do to rot and dings..
I have not recieved a price
break down regarding wood preference (still waiting). I am spectulating since both cherry and teak are standard that both are included in base price. That assumption may be incorrect!
I have looked at high end boats (sweeden, sabre
, halberg rassy, tarten) and noticed that there seems to be a trend getting awy from rub oil
teak. I may be mistaken.
I realize that teak is still the choice for exterior do to its weathering properties. I still think weathering should be considered reagarding the interior.
Its very exciting for me to actually have some say in the wood. I have never actually had this input in the past. This is also a new company with only ONE actual hull
produced since taking ownership
of the DANA mold
. Cherry was the builders choice.
The posts mentioning cedar and woods alike would probably be to soft. I am curious about Ash and mahagony. I have found the staff to be very helpful and want to make my own decision and not find myself steered in a builders preference.
Thanks to ALL....
