Tie-down Kit and Storage Bag Included FREE on Every Order

New for 2013, BoatCoversDirect is including a tie down kit and a storage bag free with every Carver boat cover purchase. If you want to trailer with your Poly-Cotton, Poly-Guard, or Sunbrella 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. We added a free storage bag to sweeten the deal, to make it easier to store your cover when you’re not using it.


Protect your investment with a BoatCoversDirect.com boat cover.

All Carver covers and Bimini tops are made right here in the USA in Landrum, South Carolina. For over 30 years, Carver has been a leader in the marine industry because of the exceptional quality of their handmade boat covers and Bimini tops.

Help preserve the value of your boat with a cover that is water repellent, mildew resistant, and UV resistant. Our boat covers are excellent for storage, either on dry land or in the water. All of our Carver boat covers include a free tie down kit which is made to aid in securing the cover to the trailer. Carver’s styled-to-fit and custom boat covers are trailerable unless otherwise noted. Materials offered are Poly-Guard, Sun-DURA, and Sunbrella, and warranties range from 5-10 years.

Our styled-to-fit covers are patterned with precision to ensure a great fitting and great looking boat cover. This is our most popular type of cover, and it is designed to fit your boats specific style and length. 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.

All of our covers carry full warranties that protect you completely. We offer a price match guarantee, so you don't have to worry about price. If you find it cheaper elsewhere, please contact us. We will beat any competitors' price on the same item by $10!

We ship our covers direct to you quickly, many times the same day that you order. If your item is not in stock, it will take us no more than 5 business days to hand fashion your cover based on your order. You choose the color and material—we have many available.

We make it our mission not only to provide a cover for your boat, but to provide you with the RIGHT cover for your boat. Accept nothing less than a cover that will last for years to come and look great while doing so. Let our cover work for you—the only thing that you need to do is enjoy boating!

You can place your order via our website, by phone, or using our Live Chat. If you are having trouble finding the boat cover or Bimini top that is right for you, or if you just want to talk to someone before making your purchase, call us.
