Laying the covering was really uncomplicated.

It took me 2.5 days, including the joints.

Apart from its appearance, which is constantly being mentioned to me because it looks so good. I am also totally happy and satisfied with the feel of the flooring.

Even in rough seas with a flooded deck, I can stand absolutely steady and even our dog has grip under his paws.

Best regards from the Baltic Sea

Top cooperation

When it comes to deck coverings of the highest quality, I work exclusively with the Rettich shipyard.

With the highest trust and top cooperation I have represented the HLF coverings in Switzerland from the very beginning.

We would go for HLF again any time.

We knew we didn’t want to have a new teak deck laid, regardless of whether it came from controlled plantations or illegally from tropical rainforests. With HLF we found an alternative that satisfied us all round.
The deck flooring was fitted in 2018 and we don’t regret it. It does what it promises to do.

Thanks to “peel and stick”, it's ready in no time.

You can’t do it without good preparation. In the morning we prepared the surfaces – sanded them down. It was quite laborious.
Thanks to the “peel & stick” method, it was amazingly quick and easy to lay the HLF-Marine deck flooring. There were two of us working, as advised, and we finished in no time.
It looks fantastic. Everything fits perfectly.
The flooring totally upgrades our boat. It also feels great to the touch, and last weekend when we had those high temperatures it was fine to walk on.

We are very satisfied, not just with the product but also with your service and how easy it was to reach you by phone or mail.
We’ll definitely recommend you.

Very pleasing end product!

Expert advice, reliable communication and highly professional workmanship and fitting of the deck flooring. Very pleasing end product.

You can tell the boss and his staff are passionate about their product.

After a long search for a deck flooring for our motor boat, I came across the HLF-Marine flooring online. I really liked the sound of it and how it looked. Then a visit to the company completely won me over. Mr. Rettich showed me how the flooring is made. Very high precision when handling the templates and layouts, when crafting it on the CNC milling machine, and followed by perfect handwork. You can tell the boss and his staff are passionate about their product. Even the fitting was flawless!
We’ve had the flooring on our boat since the beginning of the year and are delighted, it’s hard-wearing and completely low-maintenance! Finally, I’d like to say, very professional advice and very friendly contact.

R. Kretz - Galia 630 Sundeck 1, motor boat

We are very satisfied.

We never tire of looking at it and we’re enjoying the time on our boat.

R. Schärer - Trojan, motor boat

The HLF deck is now a year old and we’re still delighted we chose it!

I was looking for a new deck for my steel yacht, as my teak deck was getting on in years (50) and was sadly no longer watertight! We looked around and compared material, performance, price and design.

We narrowed it down to an original teak wood as well as the HLF, which, in terms of durability, can easily hold its own against wood!
Ultimately, it was the appearance and functionality of the HLF covering, as well as the price, that convinced us to use this material on our boat.
I can only recommend it.

By the way, I must mention that the quality of work and service from Rettich was another particular reason!

I. Mangold - steel yacht, motor boat

Keep it up!

I’ve had my new High Level Floor deck covering for a year now and I’d like to thank you again most sincerely for the excellent advice and workmanship.
The flooring has very much upgraded my boat and this will also be reflected should I come to sell it later. You no longer see any dirty footprints on the deck and it gives you a very homely and warm feeling.

I’m glad that at the time I not only had the boarding platform done but the whole boat, like deck and cockpit.
