Hi.  Need to decide on interior and exterior fabrics.  My dealer says to just get the fabric material but I'm worried about staining from sunscreen or spillage or just salt spray.  I would prefer something that can be wiped down and cleaned easily.
What are people's experiences?
Thanks

We chose leather for below and a dark grey Sunbrella type fabric material for the cockpit cushions. After 9+ years of fulltime living aboard both are in very good condition. But we are careful. The Sunbrella material can be washed which we do a few times a year. A good hose down with fresh water occasionally also helps. I think a vinyl type material on the cockpit cushions would be too sweaty in hot weather.

I LOVE the leather interior.  Much easier to clean.
If you get a " speckled" fabric for cockpit cushions they won't show salt so much (a problem in the Med).

Hi, I agree with Wayne: leather inside and the standard fabrics outside that are weatherproof after our experiences on the 508. Take your time to choose the right leather color to suits your wood type for the floor and the furniture. The 3D composer of Hanse is a good help!
