Our '08 34 HT has synthetic teak / holley in the salon. It is Lonseal or similar product. It's available in 6ft wide rolls cut to whatever length you need. Our 34 has no inside hatches so seams are not a problem. Lonseal sells edging that can be used for hatches etc.
I like the look and it is easy to clean... agree throw rug / runner is the way to go
I have installed PlasDeck teak/holley on the aft & side decks. I made the template and had the mfg provide the completed panels. They plastic weld the 3 board wide strips and margin boards around the edges. Some other mfg I checked glued the panels and/or margin boards. Installation was straightforward but I'd recommend having 1-2 others help. I am in the middle of doing a write-up of the plasdeck installation but will attach some b/4 & after pics. Plasdeck runs approx $35/sq ft for the factory made panels.
The PlasDeck looks great, easy to keep clean and we've had many comment they thought it was factory done vs DIY.
Whatever you do post some pics when you do it.
