I''m a residential architect, not a naval one, but I do have a boat (a 49ft Hinckley Center Cockpit Ketch Sailboat), and an opinion....
I steer my clients away from corian counter tops in kitchens because they scratch. In a kitchen, a counter top gets a tremendous amount of abuse and from my experience, a galley on a boat gets even more, therefore the scratches are more likely on your boat.
Corian has always countered (no pun intended) my position with the statement that you can sand the scratches out. That''s true, but who wants to do that? I have corian counters in all of my baths (at home) with integral sinks and I am very pleased with the look and performance, but theres no pots and pans to scratch the surface.
