Synthetic Teak Decking has become very popular lately. It gives you the look of real teak without all of the maintenance. We had a chance to visit one company who distributes and installs Synthetic Teak. Northeastern Marine Improvement, of Essex, CT is a distributor for Permateek. I was pretty impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of this product. Permateek marine decking can be fitted to almost any surface including GRP, Wood and Steel, it is flexible so can be shaped or contoured. It has a roughened surface that looks like natural grain and has very good non slip qualities even when wet, it also offers sound insulating benefits. Once fitted Permateek will enhance the look and value of any craft whether it be a Motor cruiser, Power boat Sports RIB, Sailing yacht or Dinghy.
