Outdoor carpet will cushion your feet and eliminate the glare from white decks. Exterior carpet is generally installed with snaps, though they're not always necessary. We recommend either Corinthian Carpet with rubber backing or Infinity Luxury Vinyl, both can be installed with snaps.
The carpet used in your home is usually fine for your boat. Most carpet is either cut pile or loop. Cut pile is softer and plusher, loops have more texture. Loops show less wear and may require binding around hatches and perimeters. With cut piles, density is more important than height. Nylon is the preferred fiber material. Most carpet should last five years or longer, depending on usage.
Carpet can be installed conventionally with pad and tack strip, loose laid with or without pad, glued, snapped, or stapled directly to the deck. Installation method depends on layout of boat, type of floor, and desired hatch access.
For pad we generally use DuraWorx which is durable, firm, and helps with sound. For a softer feel normal rebond is ok. Sound deadening pad is also available but generally only used in the salon over the engines.
