Yeah, not really a fan of it. Looks like AT did a nice job with the one in the photo, but just barely.... seems like a clash of styles in a performance boat. I do love it in the older boats, and like it in the new cruisers, but that would be it. just my opinion.

I think it looks pretty clean, I'm a fan. But it definitely depends on the boat.

Who are some of the different manufactures that make the fake teak flooring? I was planning on doing this to my 41' this winter when updating the cockpit.

There's a couple just do a search with Google. Best part is that is goes down just as easy as the pirelli floor so if you don't like the teak look just rip it out and put something else in. plasteak will also use CAD and put any kind of logo into the teak

Ugly, I do not like it but...

I understand why some of the manufactures are doing it now. The only people buying new boats now have MONEY, not just a passion for boats and a good credit score. The upper class like that look, it matches their yacht! LOL

I personally would not do it in your Active Thunder, but understand how you are trying to find a way to customize it.

Thanks offshore, I just want something different than the standard rubber floor that every hi pert boat has now. So I'm looking for options and I already ripped the old rubber out so I have to do something by spring haha

I think this would look nice if made in white.
Still get the plank look and texture , and it would be more subtle and match almost any app.
