Who makes a nice boat these days with something other than gray carpet?

Bass boats cost more than my first house. carpet color? Makes not a lick of sense. What color would you prefer? Black would be good for frying bacon, white, nope because it would turn grey anyway, any other primary color would probably be a slow seller at a dealer. Probably should order the BOAT you actually like the best with whatever color you want.

It's just a simple question. I didn't expect to get attacked. All I see is gray carpet in boats.
Does anyone out there, with a lick of sense, have a civil answer?

My boat came with red carpet and I will probably go with red again. Unfortunately the boat mfg does not have the original color so I am going to have to try and get a close match in aftermarket.

My sincere apologies. I did not intend to hurt your feelings. My reply was to suggest that you may be better off picking out a nice bass boat for many other reasons other than carpet color, then figure out how to order it with the color you want.

What is a good color for a horse? Any color a good horse comes in. I don't buy horses based on their color. Doesn't make a lick of sense to me to buy a boat based on color of the carpet. Thats all friend.

Bring back the hunter green carpet of the 80's and 90's

And I'm sure you can order replacement carpet in any color... Just go to a bass boat manufacturer's website and go to the Build a Boat tab and click a way... Dan

It’s all about selling and reselling. Grey is the optimum color for sales, use, longevity, and appearing clean(even if it ain’t). Resale values are better with neutral colors. Boats sell faster with neutral colors. It’s pretty much, like said, common sense and economy of color palettes.

When’s the last new car you saw with red or green carpet? Not counting Bentley, cause they will build anything if it’s paid for in advance.

Did you know that there is pretty much two headliner colors offered by all car manufacturers. One is called “light neutral”. Haha.

Not sure who still has them available but intracoastal models had no carpet. Otherwise Safe Floor!
