Boat Canvas Products

You know you need a boat top to provide shade, a cover that spreads from bow to the windshield, or an enclosure that protects the cabin, but perhaps the official name for the canvas escapes you. Review the basic definitions below to find the canvas you need. Then request a quote for that bimini top or cockpit cover or whatever your boat needs.

Aft Curtain
