Questions 

All of these play a factor in the design and fabric choice you will use or apply to the vessel you are working with. My first questions to my client are... 

  1.  How do you use your boat? 
  2. How long do you intend keeping the boat?
  3. What are you intentions for the boat?
  4. What is you budget and time frame for completion of the project?

Answers

The answers normally tell me what the parameters of the job will be, the outline of the estimate and the kind of fabrics and fabrication techniques and design I will use or offer.

The other point I always try to push is the involvement of the wife (never the girlfriend).  Generally, men just don't have an eye for colour and a little involvement by the other half goes a long way to keeping good relations when spending money on "His" toy!

THE WORK

More often than not, when one starts out with either a head liner or an upholstery project this leads into wiring and furniture refurbishment and re-varnishing. 

The last project I did we widened a birth and and did some major holding tak alterations as well as updating the nav. station with all required wood work.

The difficulty is pickling the wood to match the colour of old teak, This requires patience and dedication.

Power Boat projects

This grand Banks 46 job started out with the leather upholstery and ended up with a 3 month paint job  and new teak decks.

Owned by the Grevendyk's in Seattle.  We hauled her out on my dry dock and did the work ove winter.

This was so much of a pleasure to work on I bought a Grand Banks myself.

Wonderful visibility and a great handling vessel.

Center console & Open Bow fishing boats

Although the bigger boats are more interesting, I have done well over 200 open boat suites. 

These need to be addressed and treated differently to yachts.

Your shop has to be super clean and heat forming the plastics as well as having a working relationship with the manufacturer is vital to restore a boat to new condition. This is especially true relating the fabric serial #'s and original fitting - hardware supply.

TANS AND BEIGE

These are generally the most adventurous people get. I try and work on texture in order to get some tangible aesthetics into the work I do. 

The other colors are white and then blue and white.

Cladding with teak is a new thing in the marine industry for small boats. This is simply accomplished by patterning and fabricating in your shop prior to install.

The install process is quick and simple.

Smaller sailing boats

C&C Yachts

This is a simple and nice design. I was asked to replace the Upholstery on this model as they had shop soiled the demo model.

Foam forming, patterning cushions and bedding are part of a suite. 

For newer small boats we normally complete the entire suite as replacing one piece will show up the balance .

Larger Power boats

The new owner did not like the Shade of the upholstery ... So we changed it.

I love these jobs, all the work is already done. The fabrics are so new you can use the old fabric as a pattern for the new.

Nice folks, sold their business and decided to go cruising.

I could not think of a better boat to see the world in. Nordhavn I regard as the benchmark. We replaced all the upholstery in less than three weeks.

SJC

  Fabrics

   by Dillon Francis Oberholzer 

Capitalizing on the natural properties of cashmere hand woven cotton and silk blends, SJC has developed a series of fabrics for yacht interiors.

Special blends of natural fibers forge the ideal combination of practicality and comfort: silk-cotton linen, with its cool, crisp texture, and alpaca and cashmere, offering natural protection from the dampness of the marine environment.

Available in different weights and textures, these fabrics are perfect for upholstered furniture, bedspreads, cushions, and even light-blocking drapes that ensure maximum privacy when the yacht is docked.
