Teak is the undisputed choice for superyachts.
Teak has a number of unique compositions which makes it ideal for yacht decks, it is a strong and durable hardwood and the oil it produces has a high wax content which provides it with a waterproof resistance so it has the ability to survive in wet environments. Not only is it the most impermeable wood available, but as it is grown in tropical climates it is not affected by mildew or mold, insects, alkalis or fungus so it does not rot or break down easily. The overall result is an incredibly durable surface that produces a stunning and hard wearing finish. To top it all off, the densely packed wood grain in teak produces a non-slip surface making it the safest surface for wet boat decks.
Teak is the obvious choice for superyacht owners.
The quality and beauty of wooden floors, fixtures and furniture can enhance the appearance and value of any vessel, restoring its interior and heightening its deck appeal. Teak has been used on boats and luxury yachts for centuries and will continue to be used for years to come. A teak deck always looks more luxurious and offers a higher resale value because for most people teak affords a superyacht that high end affluent finish that you instantly feel when you come aboard.
