    Hello, 


    About ready to order a 2018 22 SSRFBX Premium but am having trouble with choosing interior main seat color/accent color. Any thoughts on driftwood as the main color and sandstone as accent? Wanted to go a little darker (as I think it might hide the dirt a little better?) plus I wanted something not so golden brown/tan. Any pictures would be helpful and thoughts on colors/cleaning, etc.


    Wondering why there isn't a light gray or any gray to choose from?

    Sandstone is actually more of a gray than tan

    I just googled Bennington with Driftwood interior and found many examples of boats for sale with this color.


    Bennington has one on their site with Driftwood too.

    Here is the SLX Premium interior in Sandstone with Driftwood accent. The opposite of what you asked for, but posted for comparison's sake. I think it looks great with Sunset Red.

    Very nice! It does look great with the sunset red! How is the sandstone for cleaning? Worried that it is very light for grandkids, etc. use. Do you notice the driftwood as much warmer? Thank you for posting the picture!

    I've had the Sandstone on my last two boats and it looks like the day it rolled off the assembly line.

    My experience? Even with grandkids and other rugrats using the boat, it's easy to keep clean. And the accent color isn't any hotter either.


    Happy to help.

    Just signed off on my new Benny with Driftwood interior with Sandstone accent. I wasn't sure either so I went to the dealer and looked at the material. I think it is awesome. It kind of goes from gray to brownish depending on the lighting.
