New Sunbrella cover

After 14 seasons, my factory Sunbrella cover is starting to come apart at the seams.  Cover material is still fine, just the threads are deteriorating.  Does anyone know if a new cover is still available for my boat from Sunbrella?  I prefer the Sunbrella because of how well it breathes.  It has been a good cover for 14 summers, on and off the boat every day there was no rain.  Thanks

If the material is still fine, take it to an upholstery shop and have them re-stich it.  I had that done to my pontoon cover a few years ago and cost about $150.  Way less than a new cover.

x2 - that is what my dad had done with his pontoon cover.  Material was still perfectly good, the stitching just rotted out.  Good as new for not much money

Thanks for the tips.  My intension is to have the cover re-stitched this winter, but would like a replacement before they (factory cover) are no longer available.  Gonna hit Sunbrella's website now.

No such thing as a factory cover back then. Different dealers used different covers. Most were sunbrella, but not all.
