- A Gorgeous Appearance That Gets Better With Age
Teak is a natural golden brown in color. Heartwood and high-quality teak have an almost bronze appearance, which looks especially spectacular when it’s varnished and finished. The result is a warm, beautiful deck which adds quite a bit of beauty to your yacht.
If you own a yacht, you want it to look its very best – no matter what it costs. So why settle for a PVC deck that fades and scratches easily, and looks cheap and tacky? If you really want your deck to look its best, teak is simply the best choice.
- Simple Maintenance And Cleaning Requirements
Teak does not require regular sanding and scrubbing if you clean it properly. In fact, scrubbing the wood too much can result in destruction of the natural wood grain – so it’s best to avoid too much heavy duty scrubbing.
All you have to do to clean your teak deck is use boat soap and a large, soft-bristled brush or a sponge. If you clean your deck regularly, you’ll be able to lift up stains and dirt before they become stuck to the wood – ensuring you never have to scrub your teak deck.
- You Can Match Your Decking With Interior Teak Veneer And Accents
Teak doesn’t just look good on the outside of your yacht. Considering a full-scale yacht renovation? If you incorporate some teak into the inside of your boat, you can make your interior design really pop – and make sure that the interior of your yacht feels connected to the outside.
Teak veneer is very affordable, and can be used for a variety of interior applications. From cabinets to entertainment systems, walls, and more.

- Teak Can Last For The Lifetime Of Your Yacht
A good teak deck will last 10-15 years before it needs refinishing. Because teak is a natural, durable wood, it can be sanded down and refinished to restore its brand new finish. If you care for your teak deck, and you clean and refinish it regularly, it can easily last for the rest of your yacht’s lifetime.
This is very important when it comes to selling your yacht – should you ever choose to do so. Replacing a yacht’s deck is extremely expensive, so buyers will want to know that the deck on your boat is properly installed and maintained, and will last for a long time.
