Boat Covers, Why do we need them?
The Gold Coast is a beautiful place to play on the water and we want our boats to look and perform to their absolute best. This is why we need to think about boat covers.
Have a little read below to find out the benefits to having a boat cover, there are many reasons we find them so necessary.
Keep your boat clean
One of the best ways you can protect your boat on our beautiful Gold Coast is to invest in a boat cover. When properly fitted, a boat cover can increase the longevity of your boat by up to 30 percent.
A cover can prevent scratches, dents, sogginess, washed out carpets and fading. Keep your colours vibrant, don’t let the sun turn your seats and fabric dull and lifeless.
It will also greatly reduce dirt, dust and grime buildup, you’ll spend less time cleaning and have fewer repair and replacement costs.
Your cover also keeps bugs, critters & bird droppings out, lets face it you don’t feel so great out on the water in a dirty poop covered boat!
Keep your boat safe
A boat cover is also a great way to avoid and deter casual theft of your parts and equipment (the most stolen boat items are outboards & electronics).
Its not hard for a passerby to grab a battery, paddles etc from your boat in the open, its much harder if you have to get in and under a cover so deter them, make it difficult and they’ll be much more likely to walk on by.
Prolong the life of your investment
As with all cherished belongings you want to protect and extend the life of your craft.
Your boat is a major investment and prolonging the value is another reason for keeping your boat performing and looking its best. If for some reason you decide to sell or upgrade a well looked after boat is obviously going to have a higher resell value.
Ultraviolet rays can fade the colours in your carpets & rubber components can break down causing cracks and weaknesses to many parts, all of these areas have an effect when it comes to selling your boat.
Long term storage care
A boat cover will keep out nesting animals and rodents when your boat is in long term storage, another problem with these animals is the chewing on your wiring.
Boat Covers are custom made to provide entire boat protection, these can be clipped into place or used with a draw rope to save applying clips to your vessel. The amount of coverage can be varied depending on your particular style of boat.
