Aqualon or sunbrella
by: Tammy

To make that choice you have to understand the trade off you get when choosing one or another boat cover material.
What you get in one you give up in another. So you will need to figure out what is more important to you.
There is no perfect boat fabric.
Sunbrella has the longevity with it’s 10 year warranty, is breathable and comes in so many more color choices.
However, Aqualon edge is much cooler. Up to 30% cooler, which is way easier on the vinyl covered furniture and mold growth environment below the cover. It’s also waterproof instead of breathable.
Heat build up can be a problem. Careful venting is good for both fabrics.
Both need to be reinforced carefully on wear spots.
So which one is better, it’s all in the eye of he beholder.
But, far more covers are made out of Acrylic ( sunbrella) than polyester(aqualon).
