Cleaning or replacement upholstery covers

We have a Jeanneau with cream Vinyl upholstery. As a charter boat it gets heavy use and is grubby.

I have tried baby wipes and swafega but while it gets it a bit cleaner its still grubby.

Can anyone suggest a) a better method of cleaning or cleaning product?
b) If we had the seats and backing recovered is there anything more durable than the Jeanneau supplied cream vinyl.

While not practical the cream vinyl does look nice and I believe contributes to the boat popularity with charters so I would like to keep a "light" coloured interior.

Be grateful for any suggestions.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser's have worked wonders for us on vinyl and with NO chemicals just add water... These things are truly amazing land like Rain-X they really do work...

P.S. Buy the Wal*Mart version they are made in the same factory in Germany but cost 2.48 for four vs. 3.98 for four...

I'd second the Magic Eraser sponge idea. Also, coating the vinyl with protectant solution of some sort might help prevent it from staining so badly to begin with.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
