King Starlite (also called King Starboard XL) is a lighter weight version of King Starboard. The base material is identical, however Starlite is extruded with a blowing agent added that allows the material to hold air. As a result, it is about 30% lighter and considerably cheaper.

The trade-off is that King Starlite has a cellular edge that can collect dirt and is impossible to clean. We do not use it in any applications where an edge is visible. That said, King Starlite is a great alternative for projects where the material will be hidden (substrate, mounting plate, etc.) or when aesthetics are not a priority over price.

Key Features:

  • Great economical material choice for projects where cellular edges are hidden
  • Commonly used on tackle box shells, seat substrates and backing plates
  • Same durability advantages as King Starboard - Won't swell, splinter or delaminate
  • Same durable matte texture as King Starboard

Great product!
I'm restoring an older 26' sport-fishing boat. Even the better known brands of boats can develop some rot in places over time. I have used the 1/2" King Starlite Plastic sheets to replace cabin and bow bulkheads with great success. Even though this material is relatively lightweight, it is incredibly strong. I'm glad I found it. My boat is coming together nicely now. Even the wife is "on board" now that the craft is looking new again!

I was able to replace an existing hatch with this product, it was precut perfect to my dimentions, job well done. Reused the hatch on a forward location. Killed two birds with one stone.

Great service with fast delivery
This starlite works great for general boat additions or as in my case as a support underneath my newly added anchor roller to distribute the forces. Cheaper and easier to work with compared to stainless and aluminum.

Better than wood in wet location
I'm using it not on a boat, but to elevate a 126-year-old toilet that has a different base than the newer ones. It cuts like wood, looks good, and will likely last another 126 years in its new incarnation.

Good enough, better than wood
I used this material to replace the wood backing on a boat cushion in my 1982 Grady White center console.
Material came in a bit warped on one side. Had to heat it with a heat gun to straighten it out. Other that that it worked and holds staples well.

EDWARD B on Apr 23, 2019
I'm looking for a product to replace my back seat in a 1988 open bow (Set up like a car front buckets rear bench). the back seat is composed of plywood covered in upholstery with a small storage space underneath unsupported span for the seat base +/- 2-3 feet, only the inside will be seen. Would your recommend this product to replace the plywood structure, and as the substrate for the upholstery (needs to take staples as well as plywood) ? It would also use for the Seats bases in the Bow rider section.
mike v on Jan 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes starlite takes staples well. Exposed area will get stained easier than regular starboard as it's more porous thus lighter. Starlite and starboard is more flexible than plywood over long spans so take that into consideration also with a thicker piece or a support strip etc.
Can I use it for a pontoon boat floor ?
Brado on Jan 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We do not suggest using starboard for full decking scenarios. Rather we would suggest Coosa Board for your application: https://www.boatoutfitters.com/material/plastic-sheet/coosa-board

Is this good enough for a cutting board? I have a stainless table at the dock and need a cutting board
Seano on Feb 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great Question Sean!

You can use Starlite as a cutting board, but the edge of this material is cellular in structure as the material is not solid all the way through. As a result, the edge will hold dirt and be unsightly. A better fit for your application would be Starboard. As long as it is fully supported by your existing table, you could use 1/4" material. If not then a 1/2" or 3/4" would be better.

Thanks for the question!
i have a 19 foot scout and the board under the seat cracked in half. can i use this product as my seat base to rebuild ?
james t on Feb 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi James, great question! You can certainly use the King Starlite for your seat base. The Starlite does bend slightly more than the Starboard does, so you might consider this depending upon the size of your hatch. You can always reach out to us at 866-633-7961 to go over your project in more detail. Thanks James!
We are screwing our stern upolstered stern seat to this board, which will lay on the side shelf of our boston whaler montauk and installing a stainless metal post with rubber bottom that will sit on deck. Question: Is the starlite as strong as the starboard? Will it bow when weight is applied such as people sitting on seat?
Lois Worth on Sep 2, 0017
BEST ANSWER: Good Morning Lois, Starlite is commonly used as a backing board for upholstery projects but it does need to be well supported to keep from flexing. If you would like us to take a look at your project you can shoot me over an email to brian@boatoutfitters.com and I would be happy to see what we can do for you.

Have a great day!
