Paint for plywood

I have some 3/4" plywood that I've laid out for the floor of my bus cab. I now want to paint it, and I want to use the most kickass combination of primer and topcoat that I can do to protect it from foot traffic and possible occasional water or moisture (I'll eventually have some matting on top of it but I want it to be as wear-resistant as possible on its own). What's the best stuff for this? I don't mind if it's oil-based instead of latex.

I'd probably go with some sort of urethane floor paint. I've used a lot of latex porch paint in houses and even in my bus. On the bus I used it to protect the plywood surface until I put down something permanent, which it's done very well at over the years. In real use you'd want something tougher. That be urethane porch paint. You could use epoxy but it doesn't hold up to UV light.

Yeah urethane. There’s two part deck coatings like gacodeck
