Bilt Rite hasn't been around for at least of couple of years. I believe PPI took over. You can also contact DonziDirect.com. That would be your best place to start. Just because they don't have something on their website, doesn't mean they can't get it.

----Do you have any original stuff to go by? If you don't you are probably going to have to find a good boat interior guy as I don't think anyone has the patterns anymore. Not an impossible thing to accomplish at all. You can certainly find some interior pics to give to a good interior shop.......Bill S

To build on what Bill said, if you do have the original upholstery, regardless of shape, any good shop can duplicate them.
FWIW, they may not be crazy about duplicating all that roll and pleat stitching.

If you want a bit of motivation just think of how many tanks of gas you'll be able to buy by doing the upholstery yourself !

In my case the situation was reversed .. I figured I had saved bags of cash by doing all of my resto work myself so I was able to fork out for the pleated upholstery :biggrin.:
