The right material will protect your boat and add to its individual style, making each boating experience more enjoyable. Depending on your needs, the right flooring can also extend the longevity of your boat.

If you choose the wrong type of boat flooring, it can lead to additional expensive cleaning sessions, unwanted repairs, and even total replacements long before it should be due. You’ve searched “boat flooring ideas” but with seemingly so many boat flooring options, how do you choose what is right for your vessel? 

We’ve done the work for you and we’re giving you the top 3 best boat deck flooring options that extend to almost any boat type and size!

  2. It can be used for small boat flooring as well as large boat flooring
  3.  it’s easy to clean and can withstand almost all traffic and weather conditions

  5. It’s soft and comfortable

    Full sheets are perfect for the everyday DIYer looking to level up their boat floor deck. Saving time finding a dealer and being a cheaper option, sheets can be used for anything you can think of that requires non-skid applications. The best sheets are 5mm and backed with 3M pressure activated adhesive making DIY projects easy and fun. 

    An added benefit is that EVA foam decking sheets can be used for boat flooring, RVs, home applications, garages, cars, swimming pools, and MORE. 

    Being easy to install, all you need to do is prep your surface with soap and denatured alcohol, grab your blade, and start measuring. 

    Maintenance cleanup is easy as well,  as you can use simple products like Dawn soap and water as well as SoftScrub or Simple Green for harder to clean spots.
