sport fishing boat interiors and yacht interiors. Given the fact that these
upholstery projects are not exposed to the harsh elements, there is a lot
of flexibility on fabric choices. The wide range of different interior marine
upholstery projects from small boat sleeping cabins to elite yacht state
rooms means Catalina Custom can offer materials such as:
A) Top of the line Italian leather from Garrett Leather
B) Polyurethane base mateials such as UltraLeather HP and Duratouch- These materials offer ground breaking technology in a new era of leather alternative luxury offering benefits that real leather can't match like low waste, uniform color and texture, excellent color fastness and superb stain resistance.
