Boat Covers for Hardtop/ Bimini Top

45 reviews

Boat Covers for Hardtops or Bimini Tops.

Latest design complete with side zips so you can easily enter the boat without having to undo the back of the boat cover and crawl underneath.

This Southern Storm boat cover is one of the best semi custom covers in the market with its solution dyed marine fabric which provides increased protection against NZ's harsh UV rays, giving superior colour consistency, vibrant colours, and excellent everyday clean-ability.  Our boat covers are also coated with a polyurethane coating which provides protection against abrasion and increases its water resistance. They are made from a specific breathable fabric which allows moisture to escape and helps to prevent mould and mildew.

Boat Cover Features

-   Side zips for easy access.  Please be aware that due to different boat designs and hardtop positions that the zips may not be in the best position on some boats.

-   High strength fabric engineered for extra durability and maximum weather protection. Perfect for outdoor storage.

-   Stylish protection for your boat.

-   Protects your boat from UV rays, fading and sun damage.

-   Water resistant > 1200kpa, breathable and mildew resistant.

-   Supplied with tie down straps and quick release buckles.

-   Marine grade 100% solution dyed 600D polyester with PU coating.

-   Reinforced hem with sewn in rope to adjust tightness against the hull.

-   Double stitched interlock seams with rot proof thread.

We are trialing seam tape on some of our covers to see how it copes with the extreme weather of NZ. Please note the tape may come off but it does not effect the cover in anyway.

NOTE: Boat size is a guide only and should not be used for ordering. Please use cover size and follow our simple instructions on our blog "how to measure your boat."

Excellent Fit

This cover 9.4 x 5.7m fits my 6.5m Sportfisher HT Lazercraft that well you would swear it was custom made. I absolutely recommend the covershop, great quality and speedy delivery. Thanks

Good fit 9x5.4

Bought the 9x5.4 to fit over a 585 Hardtop Profile. Fit is good including right over the motor. Would fit a 6 or 6.15 Profile hardtop.

Satisfied Customer

Initially wanting a custom made cover for my Haines SF545 with bimini, research led me to The Covershop. I purchased 8.5mx5m cover for my boat after having owned several other more generic covers. I'm really pleased with my purchase. The cover fits well, is light and easy to install as well as incl. the motor. Great product.

Great cover for our Buccaneer 565 with Bimini. Originally thought it was to big but are now happy we went with the bigger size as it wraps over the outboard and auxiliary motor.

Great cover as always

I bought the 8.5m x 5m cover for my Fi-Glass Lightning with stainless bimini/rocket launcher. Fits nicely and covers right over the outboard as well, good to have the vents and zip access. This is my 3rd cover from the cover shop, always great value and quality covers

Hard Top boat cover

Thanks for the great service, ordered on line, delivered within a week. Ordered super large size to cover the entire 635 size boat with a tall hardtop, as well as the engine. I'll have the cover trimmed and altered slightly to fit snuggly around the engine, then we should be good for another few seasons of outdoor storage. Happy customer.

Nice boat cover, works well, looks good.

Bought for a 7.0 meter Rayglass Cruisemaster, fits over the whole boat. Exactly what I needed, highly recommended.

Hardtop Boat cover.

Monteray 224 FS. Very happy with the quality and the fit(I could have ordered next size down to be honest) But am still very happy with the actual cover. Great job thanks.

Large Boat Cover

After researching and looking at a number of options for a boat cover I ordered one on line form “The Covershop” It arrived promptly with the courier and I’m very happy with the quality and the fit which I measured using their useful guide. The cover has a lovely access zip on both sides and good breeding vent and after last weekends big rain I’ve checked and everything is dry! I would recommend buying from the Covershop.Mike Tauranga
