Marine Carpet Made Easy: A Buying Guide

We're King and Queen Of The World

The marine environment can be too harsh for regular carpeting. Marine carpeting is designed specifically for use in boats—it is mold-resistant and protected against UV rays.You have many options to explore if you want to add marine carpeting to your boat. The choice you make will ultimately be governed by your budget, your needs, and your personal preferences.


Marine carpet is typically attached to the floor of your boat in one of two ways. Snap-in carpeting is held in place using industrial strength snaps. This carpet can be easily removed for cleaning or access purposes. Snap-in carpeting comes with a rubberized backing for added stability and waterproofing. Alternatively, marine carpet can be permanently glued to the bottom of your boat. Glued-in carpeting generally does not include the rubberized backing.


Marine carpeting is available in various weights and thicknesses. Carpeting with a thicker appearance will feel plush underfoot and give your boat a more luxurious feel. This type of carpeting is ideal for a boat on which you plan to entertain or enjoy pleasurable rides. Economy marine carpeting is thinner, but also costs less per square foot than deluxe or premier carpeting options. If your boat sees significant foot traffic or is meant only for family fun, economy carpeting can be a more cost-effective option.

Color and Texture

You can purchase marine carpeting in a variety of colors, patterns, and textures to suit your personal preferences. Subtly patterned or textured carpet is better at hiding stains and may be best for family boats if you have young children. You can also choose carpet in a solid color to complement the interior or exterior color scheme of your boat. All marine carpeting contains UV protection to resist fading.
