Coastal Linings was established in 2017 by Michael Phelps. Being an avid boater and truck enthusiast all his life, Michael wanted to create a company that specializes in marine and automotive coatings. Michael realized that there was a market for a different product in the marine coatings industry. After searching for a different solution, he realized he could apply a traditional bed liner product on his t-top, leaning posts, and bow rails. This product gives him the same durability on a truck but also delivers a glossy, smooth look for boats. Coastal Linings was born a few months later.

I was going to take my truck to a similar competitor, but instead, I chose Coastal Linings. They were faster, more reasonable, and the truck turned out great!

Our History

Mike and Sarah Phelps met while they were both attending UNC Wilmington. They soon graduated from UNCW, got married and began their life together. After being in technology sales for a few years in Raleigh, Mike and Sarah made the decision to move back to Wilmington and begin their family. Shortly after moving back to the coast, they welcomed their new son Tripp.  

Mike grew up in Eastern, North Carolina and has always had a passion for the automotive and the marine industry.  Upon his return to Wilmington, he wanted to make the transition into the automotive and marine industry. That is when he started exploring truck bed liners and powder coating for t-tops. He quickly learned that you could use a similar product comparable for both truck bed liners and boat t-tops.

After making this discovery, Mike established Coastal Linings. Coastal Linings is your one stop shop for automotive and marine liners. We also are providing customers with truck accessories(toolboxes, step bars, tonneau covers, etc.).Give us a call, we can't wait to meet you!
