U-DEK marine deck kits are now available direct from the new Auckland facility of leading manufacturer, Ultralon Foam.

Boat owners in the North and South Islands have the option to drop their trailer boats off at either the Auckland or Christchurch locations for a quicker turn around on the measuring, digitising and installation of their U-DEK marine decking solution by the Ultralon team. The drive-in facility can handle multiple boats with hard tops up to 10 metres in length, with a beam of 3 metres.

The Auckland team has recently relocated to Wairau Valley in Auckland, which is very accessible from State Highway 1, so boat owners can simply drive in, leave their boats and trailers at the Ultralon site, where the deck areas are accurately digitised using a handheld digital 3D scanner. The U-DEK foam deck kits are cut on-site using a CNC (computer numerically controlled) machine, then installed by the Ultralon team. This streamline process significantly shortens the turnaround time for U-DEK deck kits. The Christchurch facility offers this same service for South Island customers.

The Auckland facility also has a small showroom for visitors to view the range of PE and EVA foams and U-DEK available, including the hang packs of pre-cut decking and other small foam items such as swim floats and yoga mats.

U-DEK by Ultralon is made from lightweight closed cell foam which offers a high level of comfort underfoot and excellent protection of the boat. Durable, non-absorbing and easy to clean, it is ideal for the full range of vessels, from sailing yachts, launches, trailer boats, RIBS and personal watercraft.

The company has over 750 popular NZ boat models in its database, which boat owners can browse online at, with all other boats able to be scanned for measurements.

All deck kits can be manufactured in various colour-ways, and with standard or custom tread patterns, and can even feature a logo or boat name. Dealer enquires welcomed.
