flooring for a catamaran

Looking for flooring for my catamaran. I need suggestions on what kind/brands that are best for salt water.

And the lightest weight possible please too. Flooring all seems so heavy when I look at it.

Re: flooring for a catamaran

we re-did our floors recently using vinyl planks (same as for domestic use in kitchen etc) easy to self-instal, look great and will last forever. unaffected by saltwater

details https://www.karndean.com/en-au/floor...s/wp312-palleo

i think they are fairly light but this is subjective...

cheers,

Did you go with one of their teak look options? Care to share the area size and cost? It looks like a fantastic option.

We went with a brown color. We cut to size and my wife sewed a binding on the edge, then held down with snaps.

It cost us a little over $500 for a 40í catamaran, but that was just the hulls as itís an open bridgedeck cat.

Re: flooring for a catamaran

I am curious if anyone has done anything like this?

https://leggari.com/floors/order-flooring/

I did the floors and counters in my house with it and really liked it. Wondering pros and cons in a yacht... Probably requires more prep/sanding/fairing before application. Easier to keep dry and clean, probably not super light, but not stupid heavy either?

Re: flooring for a catamaran

You'd have to figure out a clearish non-skid, but maybe sand would add to the stone effect.

A lot of us have had veneered faux teak & holly plywood floor in their boats for decades with few issues - well, some of us haven't had issues with it I wonder if similar is possible on a well faired composite floor?

Re: flooring for a catamaran

Are we talking just floor covering? Or floor boards that have some strength? I've been in search of the latter, our boards are balsa-core with a laminate skin on both sides, have been looking for replacements. Something like the Nidastream products or Nord Compensati sandwich panels.

They supply non-skid for the topcoat, the picture I showed of my kitchen floor has the non-skid additive in the top coat.

Here is one of their info-tizement videos on the grit,
