Fitted Boat Tarps & Custom Boat Covers

A long-lasting boat cover starts with us!

From the fabrics used to the fabrication process, our covers are functional and add beauty to your investment.

We not only specialize in full size covers, we also fabricate bow covers, cockpit covers, pontoon covers, motor covers and much more!

Is your existing cover in need of some TLC?  We clean, repair and modify existing covers, too.  Call or visit our showroom for more information.

We know that you’ve made a significant investment in your boat both financially and emotionally. It’s your get-away from the stress of day-to-day. Plus, on a more practical note, we’re sure you’d like it to hold its financial value. That’s why it’s important that it be highly protected especially during our long Michigan winters. At Muskegon Awning & Fabrication, you’ll get a Boat Cover custom made just for your “baby.” One made to fit. One made to last. One made to give you peace of mind.

We use only the highest quality, most durable fabrics and materials available from such leading manufacturers as TriVantage® and Sunbrella®. We offer you a host of colors, patterns and styles that…

  • Are fade, stain, mildew, abrasion and weather resistant
  • Resist most petroleum products, ultraviolet rays and a wide range of acid and alkaline liquids
  • Won’t crack, peel or harden
  • Feature a 5-Year Manufacturer’s Limited Warranty

In addition, our covers are fabricated and sewn with welded seams to ensure fit and endurance and we offer both Button-Down Boat Covers and Tie-Down Boat Covers.

Examples of Covers We Custom Make:
  • Tie-Down & Snap-Down Boat Covers
  • Mooring Covers
  • Travel Covers
  • Storage Covers
  • Shore Station Covers
  • Fishing Boat Covers
  • Bass Boat Covers
  • Speed Boat Covers
  • Covers for Runabouts
  • Covers for Day Cruisers
  • Ski Boat Covers
  • Pontoon Boat Covers
  • Covers for Most Leisure Craft (Except Sailboats)

One Size Does Not Fit All

Why risk the damage an off-the-shelf or off-the-web Boat Cover can do? Typically they…

  • Are made from inferior materials that can fade, tear and mildew (which can be hazardous to your health not just your boat)
  • Gap and never fit your craft well enough to provide the protection it needs
  • Are NOT backed by a guarantee

Boat Covers And Boat Canvas Need Professional Cleaning And Repair

Even the best covers and canvas need cleaning and attention now and then. Bring them to us and we’ll make them shipshape once again.

BIG BENEFITS

For the boat owner who is serious about protecting his investment…

We custom fabricate durable, long-lasting covers that are excellent for travel, mooring, and storage. We specialize in designing and fabricating the perfect fit for your boat.  We weld our material to create the strongest bond when constructing the base structure of your cover.  We sew in padded reinforcements at key stress points, which provide extra durability for many years.

Thousands have called on us for custom covers. We’re a name that has been around well over a hundred years and our craftsmanship and high-quality products prove why we will continue to be around.  Give us the opportunity to quote a cover for you.  After a few simple questions to better understand your needs, we will provide you with a quote.  It’s that simple!

You can expect the following questions to be asked:

  1. How will you be using this cover?  For travel, storage, and/or mooring in the water?
  2. How would you like your cover propped up?  We can use mooring poles (similar to tent poles) or we can drill in sockets and install fiberglass bows across the width.  Two very effective ways to help water run off the cover and prevent pooling and sagging.
  3. Any areas for special fitting?  Walk-through windshield, one or two fitted windshields, trolling motor, etc.
  4. Would you like the cover to extend over your main motor and/or kicker motor?  Would you like a separate cover for your motor(s)?

Our base pricing includes loops and rope for a tie-down feature (perfect for travel and storage!), mooring poles, lined rub points and we’ll use Aqualon Mist Grey for fabric.  The Aqualon fabric is a two-ply polyester duck, double coated with a pigmented vinyl resin on the topside and a durable water resistant finish on the underside.  It remains flexible in all climates, the color will not rub off, nor crack, peel, or harden.  Aqualon is resistant to mildew, abrasion, water penetration, most petroleum products, UV rays and a wide range of acid and alkaline products.   For an additional charge, we can special order Aqualon in another color or use Sunbrella marine fabric.

Due to the custom fit, we must have your boat trailered to our shop. Typically, you can drop your boat off on a Monday and pick it up on Friday (that’s assuming we’re not backlogged. It is always best to call in advance and we encourage you to book early during peak seasons). You can feel at ease with your boat left at our shop, we keep it securely inside for the duration of its stay. Our bays are only so large and we are limited to the maximum size of 26’ length x 11’ height x 11’6” width.

As the familiar quote stated by Kurt Vonnegut goes, “In this world, you get what you pay for.”  At Muskegon Awning & Fabrication you get that and so much more.  Countless times we hear our products are well worth the cost.  We hear “just make it, the price doesn’t matter.”  All because of the trust our customers have in us.  Our custom craftsmanship, knowledgeable sales team and friendly customer service combined, that’s our advantage.  We stand behind what we make and we take pride in what we do.
