Customer Testimonials for 2023

This is the best fitting boat cover I have had. It seems well made, and good materials. The cover fits my 16.5 ft. Sea Nymph very well, and it looks good. The instructions for installation were helpful, and the care instructions should help keep it in good shape for years.

The cover I ordered fits the boat well. I took it on a 1500+ mile round trip to devil's lake. No issues with the cover went through a couple of days of rain extremely water repellent.

My shopping experience was great. I was nervous about spending that much money online, not being sure it would fit. The person I talked to on the phone was very helpful. She gave me the confidence to place the order. The Bimini cover fit perfectly! Great company to deal with!!!

The customer service on the phone was very helpful in identifying my exact boat style and the cover to match it. I'm very pleased with the quality of the material and the fit to my boat.

I bought the Styled to Fit Sun-Dura cover for my 1985 Sylvan Super Sportster 16. Until this point, I've only used generic covers. This one is a fantastic fit. The tie down kit keeps in place on the highway and the stretch cord allows it to double as a mooring cover. Time will tell how it lasts, but at this price, with this fit, I could buy several of these for price of a custom.

I received my cover and was very pleased with the “heft” of the material (it’s very substantial) and the color was exactly as shown on the website. The fit of the length overall is perfect, but it’s a little tight across the beam. I presume this is due to the fabric and the elastic being very new and it will be a little less tight as the cover breaks in. Also, I was very impressed with the tie-down straps - both with the substantial quality of the strap and that 12 were provided (way more than I expected).

I keep my boat on a lift at our dock. The cover that came with the boat would not stretch over the trolling motor. This cover fits over the trolling motor as well as the outboard motor. Very well priced vs. a custom cover.

I bought a Carver boat cover because I was so satisfied with the previous one I had. It lasted longer than I expected and the stitching held up through the life of the tarp. This new one looks to be of the same quality and there was more color selections than previously. I am very satisfied with it

At Boat Covers Direct, I was able to identify the dimensions of the Bimini top that would fit my pontoon boat. Online, I couldn't find how to purchase the canvas top without including the frame work. My frame is in excellent shape. I called the 800 number, and was helped by a friendly, real live person. She went over the details of the boat and frame to be sure to get the proper fit. She then showed me how to order the canvas only. I had to wait for 2 weeks for the canvas to be made. It was promptly shipped and arrived sooner than projected. Best of all, the Bimini top fits perfectly, and it looks great. This was a 5 star experience. Well done, Boat Covers Direct.

It is very well made, fits my boat perfectly, came with enough tie-downs (which also are good quality). It has been on the boat several weeks now, and besides looking great, it's doing the job it was intended to do. I would highly recommend ordering from this company rather than trying to save a few bucks on an item made in China and sold "you-know-where", the cover is top-notch and it came with an excellent warranty.

Top tier product... Love this boat cover... Thanks you!

The cover was received earlier than expected. It fits my bass boat quite well. I cut the straps to fasten to the trailer as opposed to wrapping under the boat and this works very well and is easier to put the cover on. I will be ordering the self adhesive patch pieces to apply as extra protection for areas that will rub.

Everything fit even with the bow trolling motor. It is waterproof and having the pole kit helps with the water not pooling on top of cover. I don't know how long it will last in the sun but it does seem pretty durable. I think it was a good purchase for the price so far.

Absolutely love it. Have an Old Town Topwater 120pdl and fits like a glove!

Easy to identify the correct cover by make and model. Shipping was relatively fast as I ordered a custom color. Make the mistake of trying to get the cover on with the shipping thwart board still installed. Cover appeared to be to short by about 3"-6". Called customer service and got quick response. They asked for photos of the problem. By then had taken the board out and put the seat in. To my surprise the cover fit like a glove. So great cover so far and great response from customer service.

Great fit and made for my G3 1442 boat. It came with a motor cover and a tie down kit that are excellent. After years of tarps and Bungie cords that were a pain in the butt I found this cover. It's the way to go! Thanks and keep up the good work.

I had sizing concerns, but their customer service walked me through the process to ensure I got the proper cover answering all my questions.

Saturday, May 6, 2023

Customer service is outstanding all the way around, beginning to end. Product quality can't be surpassed. What's not to like?

My last two "custom" boat covers fit my 2004 Lund 1700 Pro the Goodyear blimp crash landed on it. This Carver Sun-dura cover fit like a glove. The cover is shaped perfectly to fit the windshield, outboard and outer hull profile with plenty of tie down points and straps. It has already endured 4 inches of rain and a 30 mph blow and shed the water with no pooling. I'm very satisfied with this cover.

My custom sized boat bimini top arrived in perfect condition. I assembled it myself, took about an hour but with two people could have done it much quicker. Love the Bimini Top on my Hewes Bonefisher.

Tuesday, April 25, 2023

First class customer service. I had a shortage on my order that was handled in a very professional and timely manner. No long holds on the phone, no switching from one department to another, just excellent service.

Monday, April 17, 2023

The people who helped me were the best and very patient with me. The boat cover is the best I've used since 1995 when I bought my boat. Highly recommend that anyone looking for a cover buy one from Boat Covers Direct. Thank you.

Saturday, April 15, 2023

Cover is great quality and fits perfect!!! Customer service helped me find the best cover for my needs, and she was a pleasure to work with!! (Thank you, Meaghan!)


Saturday, April 15, 2023

Received cover within the estimated time. Wanted cover to go over my Zero-flex tower so called customer service for advice. The representative was friendly and helpful. Bought the mid grade Sundura cover for my MasterCraft X10. It fits nicely including the swim platform. It even fits with the wakeboard racks out. Instructions say the covers that cover towers are NOT towable. This issue seemed vague in the purchasing process. Cover is sturdy and seems breathable. Elastic gather is helpful, too. Good product for price.

I’ve owned boats for nearly 40 years, this is by far the best boat supplier I’ve ever done business with! Great products and great customer service! Thank you Boat Cover Direct, well done!

Tuesday, April 11, 2023

Excellent vendor, excellent price and excellent customer service. I actually talked to a human. I ordered a top using their recomendations for my specific boat model and it was too big. I returned the original and ordered the next size smaller with no issues and an immediate refund.

Tuesday, April 11, 2023

Great fit for my 1983 Boston Whaler Super Sport 15 with Poling Stand, but cover seems to be leaving light stains on the paint.

I ordered a bimini top a few years ago from Boat Covers Direct. The service at that time was great, and they helped me get exactly the cover I wanted. Recently, my son pulled the boat into the boathouse without lowering the bimini, and one of the poles was broken. I couldn't find anyone in town who could fix it, so I emailed Boat Covers Direct. They immediately pulled up the information on exactly what I ordered and sent me a replacement pole. Unfortunately, the replacement wasn't the right pole (it was correct for my bimini, but it wasn't the one that was actually broken - my fault.) I emailed them and asked if I can return it, but they said to not worry about returning it and credited my account. I had also ordered a replacement on my own from them that was also the wrong part, and I did return it because it was over $100. They handled that return quickly and efficiently, and anytime I needed to check on anything, emails were responded to within hours. And by the way, when I originally ordered my bimini, one of the poles was scratched during shipping. Boat Covers Direct immediately sent me replacement poles, and because they noticed in my picture that my boot had a small stain on it from rubbing against the pole, they sent me a replacement boot as well. These folks are a class act, and you can bet that I'll recommend them to anyone looking to buy a cover for their boat.

These people went out of their way to get me the right cover and make my experience with them a pleasant one. Cover fits like it was made for the boat Quite possibly one of the best transactions I have doing business on the internet.

Tuesday, April 4, 2023

Customer service was outstanding. I called to check my order status and the representative was extraordinary and so pleasant to speak with.

Tuesday, April 4, 2023

Exactly what I was hoping for! I have a 2021 Monterey M4 with a wakeboard tower. Your part #83124S provides a perfect fit and covers the entire boat (over the gunnels down to the rub rail). Unlike many other covers out there this one also covers the swim platform. Very pleased with this purchase. So much easier than snapping on the factory canvas AND this one covers the tower which is a HUGE plus! The tower, bimini top, and tower speakers now remain pollen and guano free.

Saturday, April 1, 2023

Top is awsome. Had issues with the crossbows. Had wrong size. Customer service got them to me in 2 days. Awsome!


Saturday, April 1, 2023

Almost exact fit Crazy good for the price and purpose... Shipped fast (was in Stock) /great business !!!!

Wednesday, March 29, 2023

Excellent top. Fast shipping. Customer service is top notch. I ordered the 60" tall bimini but found it was too tall. Called the customer service line and Denise was so helpful. I purchased a shorter set of poles and they came in a couple days later. Had one of the set screws on the support fall out and support twisted when I opened it and snapped one of the mounting points. Called them and they sent me two complete hardware assemblies free of charge with expedited shipping. I would recommend putting some loc-tite on your set screws once you get everything built and where you want it. Overall excellent top (despite my user errors) and unheard of customer service in today's world. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.

The cover arrived a bit too big. I called back, talked to Megan and Shannon and they took care of it right away... I was shocked by the great customer service and the general fact that those two were just plain cool. All I have to say is these Moefoes rock and they know how to handle their S#@t!  

Thursday, March 23, 2023

Their customer service was excellent. After several sessions on the website and not being able to find the right fit, a phone call was all it took. They walked me through the process to get exactly what I needed at a reasonable price and shipping was timely. The cover works great and I would not hesitate to order from them again.

Friday, March 17, 2023

They answered my questions quickly and honestly. I appreciate the chat function and that they always wanted to help you with anything you need. Product fit perfectly and we were happy with the service and product!

The website was spot on. The Customer Service was great. The covers fit well and look great. Very happy.

I have a 25 year old aluminum boat that I am giving to my son because he grew up in that boat.  I am about to haul it 1,800 miles across country with a lot of gear loaded in the boat.  I wanted a cover to keep the gear hidden in motel parking lots, and to keep stuff from blowing out on the road.  I ordered a cover from Boat Covers Direct from their website.  I specified the make, model, and size of my boat on their site.  The new cover just arrived and it is now on my boat.  The fit is perfect and the quality appears to be excellent!  They quoted me thirty days lead time for a custom build, and that's almost exactly what it took.  I would definitely buy from this company again.


Tuesday, February 21, 2023

I am very impressed with quality of the Carver cover.

After some adjustments, fits my Arima 19 Sea Ranger Hard Top very well.

Customer Service from Boatcoversdirect was incredible.

I initially ordered the wrong size (too big) and had to return the cover for correct size.

Nikki worked with me to re-order the correct cover. I made repeated calls to make sure The order was right. She was very patient wit me and answered all my questions/concerns.

I can recommend boatcoversdirect without any reservations.

I needed to replace an OEM Ranger cover that came with my 186VS fish-n-ski boat when I bought it used. I loved the original cover because it was a perfect fit and a breeze to put on. But, Ranger wanted about $1,300 for a new custom fit cover and I couldn't justify that. Second option - I checked local upholstery shops to have one custom made. Again, too pricey at $1,000 to $1,500 using Sunbrella fabric. Third, I resorted to online. First cover from company A was not wide enough and the second cover from company B was too short. Very frustrated at this point, I came across, which happened to be in my home state of SC. I ordered a Carver styled-to-fit cover in Sunbrella fabric and, low and behold, it fit!! And, it's even crafted in the state of SC. It's not a perfect fit, but definitely covers the boat and even came with a motor cover - all in one piece - and that helps keep the cover in place so you can pull the cover to the sides. The quality looks very good and the fabric sheds water very well. It's fairly easy to put on, but I am still working on a couple of saggy areas in the bow. All in all, very pleased so far, but keep in mind that it is a styled-to-fit cover, which means it should fit that "style" of boat -not necessarily a perfect fit for my model. The Sunbrella fabric option was pricey at about $450, but if I get 10 years out of it like I'm supposed to, it will be worth it. It does seem to be heavier than the first two covers I ordered. Wish I had gone with this one on my first order.


Tuesday, February 7, 2023

Great service. Within a day or two of placing the order, I received a call from customer service to both fix a billing issue with my credit card and to remind me of the 30 – 35 working day turnaround (which was fine). I put the due date in my calendar, and received an email a day before saying, "thank you for your patience, your cover is being worked on." The next day, I received a shipment notification which was on the 30th working day. I received the cover and it's the color and quality I expected. It came with straps and a mesh storage bag which is super convenient. The cover is excellent and the communication was as well.

Thursday, February 2, 2023

Ease of the website was great! All I had to do was plug in the boat specifics and it my options populated for what I was looking for. Hardest part was choosing a color! I realized after I submitted the order, I should have shipped to a different address (it was a gift). I emailed them and they responded within minutes! The order was delivered in about 1 week. Fantastic company!

The boat cover I ordered was for a 1999 model boat, so it had to be custom made. The fit and material is absolutely top notch and well worth the price. The tensioning with the supplied straps ensures there are no low points and water beads and rolls off with no wet spots or pooling. The cover also covered the outboard motor which was a significant benefit over a generic cover since an additional motor cover would have cost $150 or more. This was a great value and I have no doubt it will stand up to the 10 year warranty. My only recommendation is to order the cover well before you need it. The custom production takes time and it arrived 6 weeks after the order was placed. Not terrible considering the custom work and impacts of COVID on shipping and resources. Great company and would buy from them again.

Sent email on sizing since they did not have the exact fit for the model of kayak I had. Boat covers direct sent a quick correspondence. The lady said it might be a little big. But it fit great and seems pretty heavy duty. I give them a big thumbs up. Thanks Kody

Tuesday, January 17, 2023

Great customer service, I called regarding a "closeout " Carver cover. Rep verified it was available and explained it had been inspected and condition was "nearly new" as it had been a return that didn't fit. Prompt delivery. Upon my inspection it was as described and included the motor cover too. Great company to deal with.


Sunday, January 15, 2023

I bought my cover 5 years ago. I lived in Redmond, Or. at the time. Winters are 6 months long there and it snows on an average of 5 foot a winter. My cover sometimes in the morning would have a foot of snow on it. I would have to go out and brush it off before work. Carver makes the best boat cover I have ever had. I am still using the same one. They are well worth the price spent. I will always be a Carver cover buyer. Smallmouth55

Great customer service. I ordered a boat cover on line then needed to make to make a change to be sure cover arrived in time for a vacation. Regina in customer service was knowledgeable and very helpful. Received my cover very quickly. Thanks Regina!

Thursday, January 5, 2023

The customer service was outstanding. You answered my questions and guided me through the correct measuring technique. Delivery time was fast!
