Interior Wall Covering

Im hoping to gut and replace the cabin wall covering this winter. Does anyone know of a good product to use? I currently have the carpet-like material on the walls and ceiling. I assume thats the best way to go, but Im having trouble finding it.

Re: Interior Wall Covering

We had carpet like material in our boat and ripped it all out. It tends to hold moisture and and gets a little stinky moldy after a while. The wife painted the interior white where the carpet was. Easy to keep clean and brightens the place up. If I was to reline it with anything I think I would go with some kind of cork for the insulation and sound deadening effect.

Re: Interior Wall Covering

I just completed a refit on our 52' Kanter. Where the walls had been covered with adhesive vinyl and foam, I removed everything and covered them with commercial grade vinyl wallpaper.
I prepped the walls with Zissner wallpaper prep which contains KILZ to prevent mold. I used commercial glue designed for kitchens. I caulked all raw edges.
Came out beautiful and was not too much $$.
A few swear words were heard during the job, especially around the portholes.
Regards,
Dr. Michele

My next-slip neighbor is a Kanter 52.
Most gorgeous yacht ever built without a teak interior.

Re: Interior Wall Covering

Thanks, they are great boats. Ours has a solid cherry, satin finished interior... absolutely beautiful. Most Kanters are laminate with wood trim, but our was built by a wood craftsman who put in tons of custom touches and inlaid detail.... will never get rid of this boat... where else will I find one with four built in hidden wine racks???? See Pic under my images.
Fair winds,
Dr. Michele
