Boat Covers Unlimited has been a fixture on Lake Norman in Mooresville, North Carolina, for nearly 30 years. A family business, the company produces custom boat covers, mooring covers, golf cart enclosures, boat and house enclosures, and Bimini tops. Boat Covers Unlimited exclusively uses Sunbrella® marine fabrics provided by Trivantage®, and business partner Richard Miller recently told us why.

“The harshest of marine environments – sun, water, wind – are no match for Sunbrella marine fabrics,” he said. “The fabrics breathe, which releases heat and moisture, and protect boaters from the elements, which can extend the boating season. Our customers are interested in the freshest looks of the season, which is why we trust Trivantage to help us navigate evolving customer tastes in terms of colors, styles, and pattern. They counsel us regularly and are always suggesting new tools and approaches to build our business.”

Commercial DualShade 350 shade sail fabric brings a unique two-toned look and adds character to any shade sail, especially in a hypar twist, which highlights the different colors on either side. A patented knit pattern gives the shade sail fabric a shimmery, iridescent effect. Made from high-quality HDPE, it’s specially engineered to provide superior dimensional stability. This reduces re-tensioning frequency and maintenance costs for a longer fabric life and enhanced performance.
