Award for Excellence 2019, Marine Trimming Interior

The clients delivered a ski boat to us with a fully re-built shiny engine after informing us the old one had 700 hours on the clock. It was no surprise when they requested new carpet and a completely new interior seeing as the old one was stained and falling apart. 

The clients are a retired couple that were giving the whole boat a re-vamp after enjoying many years of water-skiing with their children. They wanted their grandchildren to experience the same amount of joy that they had with the ski boat. However, a full new interior was the last thing to tick off before getting the boat back on the water.

The boat was in dire need of attention when it had arrived in our shop. New seat bases and backs were required along with new foams. The new foams were moulded to suit the design of the seats. The driver’s and observer’s seats were re-designed to achieve a modern look. The customer’s requested a “Swirly” design with the use of 3 colours. Previously, the boat’s interior was white with blue highlights to reflect the exterior of the boat. The white vinyl and light carpet in the boat were very badly stained from red dirt present at the water-skiing dam. They wanted to still match the exterior of the boat but didn’t want colors that would stain easily. So we suggested dark grey carpet and a slightly lighter grey vinyl to complement the blues. Whilst they were not entirely convinced to begin with, they said they would leave it in our capable hands.

Our clients could not believe it was their boat, as it looked like a completely different boat once done. They were especially impressed with the colour choice and design of the pattern. They left incredibly happy with their “new” boat.
