Hey all,
Looking for the softest vinyl for marine application-fabric to be used inside boat on fresh water-not outside in the sun, UV etc. I am in search for something luxurious in feel and resembling calf's leather. Is there such a vinyl out there that doesn't smell or 'feel' like fake leather?
I just noticed a "ever soft" vinyl at Sailrite. Wondering....anyone use this yet?
Thanks in advance,

Forgot to mention....boat is a sailboat and has very tinted windows up above so not likely to have much UV get down into salon area or cabins

I've attached the Ever Soft Vinyl specs from Sailrite. Thoughts, anyone?
Hmmm let's see if I can figure out how to attach! lol

There were discussions on Ultraleather on here and it would serve the purpose. Nothing is going to feel like calfs leather and the smell may be minimal with the vinyls you are looking at since they are not thick. Were you going to attempt this yourself?

Sunbrella Horizon is our softest high end mairne option. Not sure how eversoft compares feel-wise but horizon has a better wear rating so i suspect eversoft is softer. I like it because they offer foam backed, channel and welt in all colors and customers like to hear that Sunbrella name.

Interesting! I actually think I might have a sample of Horizon kickin' around here somewhere in the sail loft. Thanks! If not I'll check out avail colors :grinning:
