For what its worth, I had a local company (Sarasota, Fla) that specializes in teak decking--making decking for quite a few manufacturers of luxury yachts in the US and abroad--do an estimate to replace the teak in our cockpit (excluding the grating)--also a Beneteau First 42--that came in at nearly $6,000 USD. I was stunned by that but, because of restrictions on the import of the material, it is extraordinarily expensive and so makes the work costly. The synthetic may be a good option as it seems to be what is used on the new boats and from what I've seen, seems to look pretty good and work pretty well. For the moment, however, we are still just giving the seats a good scrub with teak cleaner (across the grain) and giving them a coating of Tropical Teak finish and they look pretty good for 5-6 months at a time.

Re: Beneteau 37 teak seats

I finally bumped into my neighbor who used the synthetic teak on his boat. It is called Plasteak (Quality Boat Deck and Outdoor Plastic Furniture Products | PlasTEAK Inc.) and it came out very good. He's doing the deck on the back of his powerboat in it now. The only thing I could recommend having seen his is to figure out a way to cover the edges as other than this it looks real good.

Re: Beneteau 37 teak seats

I am in need of replacing teak strips cockpit seating on my 381. One side badly in need.

I have read about plastic/teak.

Would love to learn from experiences

Re: Beneteau 37 teak seats

I was just checking out that Plasteak website. Looks pretty nice, and lower maintenance is always appealing. I kind of like the one they have with glow-in-the-dark "caulking" for replacing my teak seats. I think it could be cool and add a little light in my otherwise dark cockpit. One could always throw the seat cushions down if the glow affected your night vision.

Re: Beneteau 37 teak seats

I'll have to look again as I didn't see the glow in the dark variety. Let me know what the quote is for your boat if you ever get around to sending in a template for the seats. I'm thinking about doing it as well but there's a lot of projects between now and then that are on the list.
