I'm not a big fan of the carpet either, but I like how it feels in bare feet.
A couple years ago I did the interior floor of a 75' schooner Moonfleet in Tek Dek its synthetic or PVC strips with the black dividers, I laid it over sanded plywood. Follow the instructions, very easy, it's been standing up well and looks really sharp! I think it went in around 11. Or 12. Bucks a square foot. Put in some flush mount brass floor hatch pulls , I'm a carpenter so I was Leary about the choice of synthetic, I'm converted now, and glad I ordered enough for my own boat.
Make sure you get the right stuff Tek Dek from U.K. There are some knock offs out there not up to snuff.
