Interior Boat Design Tools
Interiors of boats are often made from wood. (mesa de cartas image by mercedes navarro from

The interiors of some boats look bedraggled because cheaper materials were used on the interior design to allow the boat to survive excess water, which can cause mould or mildew to grow. Certain tools are used to properly design and install the decor in a boat's interior, making it attractive and comfortable for everyone who uses it.

Boat Design Programs

A number of computer software tools allow people to design and properly plan exactly what type of interior they want inside their boats. Create three-dimensional models with these programs. The models are later used by those who are building the boats based upon the customer's approval of the design, as well as those who are decorating the boat's interior once it is constructed. Using these computer program tools are necessary to plan and make specific changes to the boat's interior before the actual construction begins so that the customer gets exactly what he wants.

Tape Measures

Size your decor and furniture to fit exactly within different spaces of the boat's interior. Space is limited within most boats' interiors, so it is necessary to find furniture or decor that fits into a particular area of the boat exactly; a tape measure is the best tool for this, along with a blueprint that shows the exact measurements of the available wall and floor space inside the boat. Height, width, depth and length are all important dimensions to know about the boat's interior, and a good, lightweight tape measure will give you all of that information.

Power Drills and Screws

As boats rock back and forth on the high seas or move quickly across the water, you must attach nearly every permanent item installed in the interior of the boat so that they don't move around as the boat moves, rocks and shifts from side to side. Attach the base or frame of the objects within the boat tightly to the boat itself so that they do not move or fall off the wall, break or become a dangerous hazard to anyone beneath or around them. Use a power drill and heavy-duty wood and metal screws to attach the items to the walls or floor. Insert screws into all sides of picture frames on the walls and into the legs and feet of tables and permanent chairs.
