About Us

Teakdecking Systems (TDS) changed the way boat decks were built by introducing novel Swedish technology to the marine industry in 1983. Since that time, the well-managed, self-funded, employee-owned organization has continued to serve a traditional market with innovation, and corporate social responsibility. 

When caulking products in the market could not meet TDS quality standards, the team developed a proprietary formulation. The same is true for decking adhesives and cleaners. Even competitors purchase these products to build and maintain their decks. The US government only entrusts TDS products for iconic museum battleship repair and restoration.

When customers started asking for composite decking alternatives, TDS sourced high-quality materials and added these decking materials options for customers.

Teak is legally-sourced from South-East Asia, verified by DNA tracing, and TDS wood experts personally select the timber. 

All work performed by TDS is fully warrantied, and just as the products are supported, so are the employees. As part of an ESOP, the diverse groups of 100+ employees receive some of the most generous benefits of companies in the local community. With time, they become vested in the company.

Following Teakdecking Systems is like riding a well-built traditional yacht that can weather storms, but will also surprise its passengers with agility and innovation.

LOCATIONS: Headquarters and manufacturing are in Sarasota, FL, and in 2020, TDS purchased assets of Teak Solutions SL, with an office in Barcelona, Spain, and manufacturing in Valencia, Spain.


Our goal is to exceed your expectations. We do this by proposing and delivering innovative designs, unparalleled quality, and impeccable installations—all with a commitment to excellent service.


You require exceptional quality and performance from our products, and we deliver these globally to a wide range of customers: Do-it-yourself small boat owners, high-volume production boat builders, custom yacht builders, boatyards, major shipyards, and cruise ships.
