One of the best alternatives to marine plywood is fiber cement board. A fiber cement board is made out of a combination of cement and wood.


The material is very strong and it is not susceptible to water damage like some of the other types of plywood on the market.

Ribbon-Grain Plywood

Another option that you may want to consider is ribbon-grain plywood. This type of plywood has a very smooth surface and it is also extremely durable.


Both of these options are generally less expensive than marine-grade plywood and they can be used in a lot of the same applications.
