The first Chris Craft was built in 1874 by Christopher Columbus Smith in Algonac, Michigan; a small town on the river of St. Clair. Smith was only 13. A few years later, he built a duck hunting boat, and soon his friends wanted boats, too. This was the unofficial start of Chris Craft boats. Come 1922, he and his brother Hank (along with a few other partners) began Smith and Sons Boat Company. In 1930 the name was changed to Chris Craft, and the legend began.
By the 1920's, the company was already known for their sleek racing boats. Their customers included the likes of Henry Ford, Frank Sinatra, Katherine Hepburn, and William Randolph Hearst. In the late 20's, they decided to lower costs so they could offer the boats to a larger market and began assembly line production. Prior to this, most all of their boats had been hand-built. When the 22' Cadet runabout was introduced, middle class America was now able to enjoy the boating life, which before was only available to the wealthy. The boat was offered with an installment plan, and it saw great success, while at the same time opening the boating world up to a much larger group of people.
Quickly, the name Chris Craft started to go hand in hand with the term “pleasure boating”. Their beautiful wooden boats still symbolize a lifestyle of luxury and an appreciation of fine style. It would be a shame not to protect such a boat with the best cover available. Choose your Carver cover by selecting your model from the list below.

New for 2013, Boat Covers Direct® is including a tie down kit free with every Carver boat cover purchase. If you want to trailer with your Sun-DURA®, or Sunbrella®/Outdura® cover, you must have a tie down kit. If you try to travel, even a short distance, with bungees, you’ll find that your boat cover flaps violently in the wind. Over time, this can lead to stretching or even ripping of your boat cover. Tie down kits are necessary for trailering because they do not stretch. Your boat cover order will include a kit of 12 polypropylene straps with buckles, kind of like the ones that you see on a life jacket. Even if you don’t trailer your boat, it’s much easier to snap a strap to tie a cover down than to have to tie and retie rope every time you store your boat.

These Styled-to-Fit® covers have shock cord (shock cord is like elastic, only much, much stronger) in the hem to provide a snug fit. In addition, if your boat has an outboard motor, your boat cover will come with a free attached motor cover (excluding boat covers for inflatables, which cover the boat and motor in one). Our Styled-to-Fit® covers come with a guarantee of fit and satisfaction, as do all of our products!
Our custom covers are designed specifically for select boat models. They are made with the boats every contour in mind, ensuring a perfect fit. Custom boat covers come with a draw rope sewn into their hem, which usually exits at the stern, allowing you to pull the cover snug. If your boat has an outboard, your cover will come with either an attached or separate motor cover- call us for details on your particular cover.
