Boat covers are the best way to protect your boat from the elements
While biminis, canopies, and enclosures offer great protection for your boat when you’re out and about on the water, if you want to keep your boat in great condition you need to invest in a quality boat cover. Boat covers are grouped into three main categories according to fit: universal, semicustom and custom.
Universal covers, sometimes referred to as storage covers, are generic enough to fit both inboard and outboard motors. Universal boat covers tend to be big and baggy and while they are cheap and easy to source, they are generally made of poor quality materials and don’t last long. Semi-custom boat covers are designed for specific hull designs and fit much tighter than universal covers. They are more secure and tend to be made from higher quality materials.
Custom boat covers, while the most expensive provide optimal protection for your boat in a range of storage conditions. By choosing a custom cover you can specify your material and ensure you get a high-quality fabric that’s suitable for the harsh weather conditions of the Gold Coast and Brisbane. They need to repel the rain, but at the same time, allow trapped water vapour to escape. The best fabric for Gold Coast and Brisbane boats is generally a strong, breathable coated synthetic, as they are great at repelling water and UV radiation. You can also opt for urethane coated, solution dyed polyester fabrics or solution-dyed acrylics, both of which are stain- water-, UV- and mildew-resistant.
