    What's the recommended method and cost (via contractor) to refinish in place wall panels? I saw an older hatteras that had redone panels that looked new. Smooth satin finish. Also would love to find replacements to cabinet doors. I'd hope that a major pre fab Kitchen cabinet house might have a teak option? Someone like kraftmaid?

    Yacht cabinetry "on the cheap" tends to look the part. We've all seen it. New doors and drawer fronts can likely be fabricated by a local woodworking shop that knows their stuff. One the wall panel refinishing, is it all of them or just some? If it's all, you may want to consider re-veneering them. We did a project on a 63' Hatteras MY. Saloon had been previously wallpapered. We veneered them and finished. She looked like new. The bill was around $15K.

    Where's the boat located. Refinishing entirely depends on the material of the cabinets. If they're solid wood, then it's usually as simple as stripping what's on them, re-finishing them, and putting them back. If it's a veneer it gets a little trickier. It has to be carefully removed and new veneer has to be carefully applied.

    If the boat is in Fort Lauderdale PM me, I can recommend First Cabin for making new ones. They've been in business forever and do great work at a good price. If you just want them refinished, there is a girl named Maggie, that does great work.......
