Hands-free boat covers eliminate hassle

May 1st, 2010 / By: / Marine, New Products

Boat ownership can be an expensive proposition. Beyond the initial upfront purchase, owners pay for winter storage, insurance, docking fees, fuel costs and maintenance. IMT Inc., Winter Park, Fla., has developed an ideal way to cover this important investment—the Touchless Boat Cover™, a one-touch remote control protective shelter system for a wide array of lifts and dock configurations.

The cover system shields boats’ sensitive gel coats from damaging sun, weather exposure, animals and debris, while heavy-duty steel frames stand up to wind speeds of 140 mph. Marine-grade fabric provides maximum ventilation to prevent mildew and water damage. With the touch of a button, the wireless keychain remote eliminates covers that must be manually roped or snapped. “Our customers keep telling us they love taking their boats out even more now knowing they don’t have to struggle to uncover and cover their boat when they want to use it,” says IMT president and co-founder Gary Elbers.
