11. Gloss Acrylic
Acrylic is a rigid but brittle, glossy black material that has become in vogue on some later model boats. It cracks easily in thicknesses less than about 1/4″, so we only offer this in 3/8″ and 1/2″ (recommended if the smaller span is greater than about 12″).
But a brand new acrylic dash gives a kind of ‘glass bridge’ look to your helm, matching well with some of today’s large MFD screens.
It does not hide scratches or watermarks well, but deep scratches can be somewhat polished out of this material with some time and a buffer.
We have a gloss black ABS as well for those wanting to avoid the cost and brittleness of acrylic on smaller panels.
