Cabela's Premier Marine Carpet and Mystic Carpet are higher-quality boating carpets. Cabela's uses a patented manufacturing process for added strength and durability of boating carpets and deck finishing, as well as constructing the carpeting from polypropylene, making it water-, gas- and oil-resistant. The combination of these elements allows the surface of the carpeting to maintain its appearance longer than less expensive and conventional carpeting. Cabela's Premier Marine Carpet is available in a variety of colors, including taupe, sapphire, charcoal, gray and claret, while its Mystic Carpet is available in royal blue, green, charcoal, maroon and sandstone.

Overton's Marine-Grade Daystar Carpet is constructed from polypropylene yarns of continuous filaments, with ultra-violet protection and a waterproof, extra-strength marine backing. This particular carpet and backing are made to resist stains, mildew and mold. Overton's offers Marine-Grade Daystar Carpet in a complete kit that includes carpeting, adhesive, a trowel and installation hardware. Available colors include jade, taupe, forest green, cornflower blue and sandstone.
