Styled to Fit covers are available for most Australian manufactured boats
Whats the difference between Styled to Fit and Custom Fit Boat Covers?
A custom fit boat cover pattern is only suitable for the specific boat model it is listed for and cannot be used for any other model. With a custom fit cover you are guaranteed a perfect for your boat model but the covers are designed for factory standard models, in some cases a specific aftermarket fitting may be mentioned in the cover design, for example a specific brand of wake / ski tower, in this case the cover is custom patterned to fit that exact model with the factory fitted aftermarket item.
All Custom Fit Boat Cover Patterns not only follow the exact boat contours but also where needed are reinforced at key stress points which is designed to give the cover the longest life span and protection from damage from stress areas under the cover.
Whenever a Custom Fit Cover is available we always recommend selecting the custom fit cover for your Boat.

Why is the price of your Custom Fit Boat Covers so much less than I have been quoted by a Local Marine Trimmer?
Simply because the patterns have been created and computer generated so each pattern is automatically cut by laser cutting technology, no need for a Trimmer to hand cut out each part of the cover. Also Carver make many thousands of Boat Covers annually so their vast buying power means they get the finest quality fabrics at excellent prices, those bulk buying discounts get passed onto you the customer.

No: Definitely not, the quality and workmanship of all our Custom Fit Covers offers you same level of exact and specific pattern and shaping customisation as you would expect from a local marine trimmer. The custom fit boat covers show you the Tailored fit and the quality. The covers are also backed up with 3, 4 and 7 year warranties depending on your fabric selection.

We dont offer a cover that is an all over cover with the hull cover built into it but you can choose a matching Boat Cover designed to cover the hull of your boat and protect it from the damaging effects of UV. Boat Skirts are not designed for Travel and can be used for Storage purposes only.
Which colour cover should I choose?
All of the covers in the Styled to Fit and Custom Fit range are made from fabrics with high levels of fade resistance, Sunbrella® being the most fade resistant fabric.

There are a number of recommendations to prolog the lifespan of your Boat Cover including use the Boat Cover support system to prevent excess pooling of water on the fabric.
A boat Cover reinforcement kit is available which can be used to protect sharp areas on your boat that could cause stress on the boat cover material, tears on the fabric caused by any extrusions on the boat or any part of the
When trailering or storing yor boat with the cover on it use the Tie Down Kit to prevent damage to the cover.
Never wash the boat cover in a machine, you can use a soft bristle brush for cleaning, allow the cover to dry completly before folding and storing it.
We offer specialist cleaning products for boat covers which we reccomend using for the best quality cleanign and care results. 303 Fabric Cleaner and Fabrc Guard are recommended to be used, as Fabric Guard contains a small amount of alcohol when dispatching it will be sent seperatelty on its own consignment as dangerous good.
Never use any chemicals or cleaning solutions on your Boat Covers, this will void your warranty and can significantly reduce the lifespan of the fabric.

How To Prolong The Life Of Your Boat Cover
- • Avoid letting water or snow stand on the boat cover - use support poles, straps, or bows.
- • Always tie boat cover down securely.
- • Take the precaution of padding windshield, trolling motors, depth finders, etc. before installing boat cover.
- • Clean boat cover regularly to remove salt, pollen and environmental pollutants that could support the growth of mildew. Brush off any loose dirt or soil, then spray the cover with a solution of mild, nondetergent soap (such as Lux,Dreft, Ivory or Woolite) and cool/ warm water. A soft brush may be used on heavily soiled areas. Rinse thoroughly. If cleaning deminishes the water repellency of the cover, we recommend treating with 303 High Tech Fabric GuardTM Water Repellent.
- • Allow boat cover to dry thoroughly before folding for storage.
Installing A Carver Boat Cover
All Carver Boat Covers are rolled and packaged with the bow end of the cover to the outside. The tag on the bow end is sewn into the inside hem of the cover. To cover your boat, proceed as follows:
- 1) Place the bow end of the rolled cover on or near the bow of your boat and unroll towards the stern or back, positioning it down the center of the boat as you unroll.
- 2) Slip the front of the cover over the bow and pull the cover open to the sides as you work towards the back of the boat.
- 3) If using support poles (optional for most covers), position the poles under your cover prior to completely covering the boat. Also add any padding needed for the windshields, trolling motors, depth finders, etc.
- 4) Adjust cover fit by pulling cover tight to eliminate sagging areas. These areas may collect standing water or snow and shorten the life of your cover.
- 5) Using the reinforced tie-down loops, secure the cover to your trailer. When trailering, always use heavy-duty tiedowns, 1 pack supplied with all custom fit boat covers
- 6) Remove the boat cover by folding to the center from both sides and rolling the cover from back to front. This will make it easier to repeat steps 1 thru 5 when covering your boat again. (Important: Allow the cover to dry thoroughly before folding for storage.)
Installing the Tie Down Kit to the Boat Cover
Based upon the size of your boat cover, it may not be necessary to use all of the tie down straps.In some cases you might prefer to use an extra tie down kit if so you need to order this separately with your order
- Step 1: Thread the buckle-end of the strap through the tie down loop from back to front. Pull through approximately 12 inches and tie-off with a simple overhand knot so that the strap is secure.
- Step 2: Guide the opposite end of the strap around the trailer from back to front.
- Step 3: Thread the strap through the top slot in the quick release buckle from back to front,pulling the end of the strap toward you.
- Step 4: Continue threading the strap over the center bar of the buckle and into the bottom slot of the buckle. The strap is now fully adjustable by pulling down on the loose end of webbing. Install all the straps on the cover before tightening.
- Step 5: Be sure the cover is centered on the boat, then tighten all straps securely so that the cover is taut.
- Step 6: Trim the straps. Leave approximately 12” of webbing for adjustability and trim off any excess using a pair of scissors. Lightly singe the cut edge of the webbing using a cigarette lighter to fuse the yarns and prevent the webbing from unraveling. DO NOT SET ON FIRE AND BE SURE TO EXTINGUISH ANY FLAMES. To remove the boat cover, simply disconnect the quick release buckles by squeezing the sides. For quick and easy re-installation of the cover, leave the straps attached to the tie-down loops. After first use, check straps for tautness. If they require adjustment, untie knot and refer to step 1.
