Boat Covers for Hardtops or Bimini Tops.

Please measure your boat as per the the guide before ordering "How to measure your boat"

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 affect 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."

The big cover up!

Was looking online for a cover for my new purchase 585 mclay with a bikini top. Looked at a few read some reviews and decided on the covershop cover. The reviews and company description of the product was what sold it for me, the how to measure advise was good too. Overall I am stoked it fits great , great material, and looks good. Awesome product and service.

8.5x5 cover

Excellent cover fits spot on for our boat which is a Marco 610 souwester whitch is 17 year old and this is the second cover from The Cover shop as the stitching rotted out on the other cover, Its is some where around 6 years old

So far, so good. But we’ve only had it on for about a week, so we’ll see how it goes. It was very easy to put on- the lightweight material is amazing

So far, so good. We’ve only had it on for about a week so we’ll see how it goes. It was very easy to put in though. The lightweight material was great. We bought a 10x6m for our 6.5m boat with hardtop roof and it covers the engine also

Happy with the cover.

I have never had a full cover on any of the boats I have owned and this is a nice change. Deck area is covered and dry now. Boat is parked under a pohutukawa tree and no more issues with its leaves etc fouling the boat. Time will tell how long it lasts but a good start thanks.

Cover for Haines Hunter SF600

I recently purchased a Haines Hunter SF600 and bought a cover to fit over it with the full bimini up. The 1st one I ordered was a bit too big (9 x 5.4), but Covershop swapped it for the next size down (8.5 x 5) and it fits just like a custom-made one...very impressed with the fit...and the service! Thanks Guys

Boat Cover for Larson 240 Cabrio

We are very happy with the cover, our boat is 24 feet long plus a swim board and the cover fits perfectly. It appears to be really well made with plenty of tiedown points and a great fit.

Great cover !

Great cover, only just purchased, so I am unable to see the jurability of the cover at this stage, but appears to be a better product than the previous cover from another company.

8.5 x 5 m Black

The 8.5 x 5 m cover arrived promptly and adequately covers my Buccaneer 565 Sportsman with Bimini and rocket launcher including the bowsprit mounted anchor and 115 HP Outboard. Looks a little **** at the coaming below the rocket launcher but it does cover the boat well. I fitted 32 mm waste water pvc 90 degree bend pipe fittings to relieve the strain on the cover at the rod holders on the rocket launcher. The internal seam cover strip has fallen off on one seam after a couple of weeks. I will see how long the other seam covers last. So far all good. Malcolm McGowan - Whitianga
