Wanna do Teak in my cockpit...how much ballpark will it run me???

Before I start to dive in here...wanna know how much it will run me to have my cockpit floor and seating surfaces done in teak planks....Here is a pic of the cockpit as it is now, and the style I want to go for. Its not a big cockpit so I'd think it wouldn't be much....but just wanna get an idea so I can prioritize my upgrades. I think the Boomkicker is next, then instruments, then teak.

My cockpit now...



The style I am looking to add...Just floor and seating surfaces on the sides of the cockpit and the back next to the tiller.

You may want to consider Nuteak, it does not require any maintenance

Probably into 4 figures if you do it yourself, well into it if you have it done. Teak boards to cut the strips from cost $20+ a B.F. Pre-made teak decking which usually is 2 planks wide with a false caulking groove in the middle will run near that per LINEAL foot.

I've laid teak decks and laid teak cockpit soles etc. My STRONG recommendation is that you listen to overbored - the new synthetics are difficult to distinguish from the real thing and don't require all the work. If you can make an accurate paper template, the synthetic teak decking companies can make you a set of pieces that you just have to stick down and you're done. They look real, don't weather, don't require maintenance and are lighter.

Hmmm....funny how I have come full circle. I looked into the various synthetic companies, nuteak, plasteak, sea cork, etc. The reviews I have read are that the synthetics are not really a replacement. The sea cork seems like the best of them all except it looks like cork. lol...Maybe I'll call the nuteak distributor and see if he can show me samples and maybe see a boat in person. The thing about the nuteak is its a tad bit on the orange side...I'd like a bit more bleached look like the Jeanneau's in those pics. I think its more understated and low key. Just my opinion. The nuteak website has a lot of pretty flashy examples...

fake teak sucks. itis hotter than real teak which is pretty hot already. It also scars and the glue used in the margin s doesn't stay glued. I have not seen a fake teak deck that layed smooth and flat. I am biased as I install a lot of real teak decking. I won't install fake teak and wouldn't have it on my boat. You could also use a 3m overlay that would look like weathered teak.

I'm not addressing your inquiry about the teak seating but for your own personal comfort and the comfort of your guests you should consider some cushy cockpit cushions. Cushions would hide any teak applications but are easy on the backside and you can sleep on them whenever the occasion arises. Just sayin....

I'd be in the 'why?' group... IMO you're adding unnecessary weight and maintenance. A nice contrasting nonskid will give you better grip and a similar look if you take some care, but watch out for the darker colours..they can get very hot underfoot even out of the tropics.

Is this your 'forever' boat??... if not there's better places to put your money.

I second cockpit cushions. If you want a nice "wood floor" look without the cost and trouble of teak, make a set of duckboards/cockpit grates. I used cedar, epoxy sealed and varnished. Looks good, is comfy underfoot and cost less than $100.

I was at the Long Beach boat show a week or two ago and they had a teak vendor there. He told me it runs about $100 sq. ft. and you can install it yourself. They get a template, send it to their shop and they send it back to you. It would then be glued down, no screw or plugs. He said it was easy to install or they would hire a sub to do it for you.
