Canvas Barn Marine Trimming is a business owned and run by a long time local family. Our specialty is high quality marine trimming. This means we put covers on your boat, and do upholstery inside it too!

We cater to boating enthusiasts in and around the Gippsland Lakes. Canvas Barn Marine Trimming can even make covers for boats further away!

From fishing boats to super yachts, we design and manufacture high quality custom covers for your boat. This enhances the look of your boat while ensuring a long life and ease of use.

We are located in Swan Reach, close to Metung, Lakes Entrance, Bairnsdale and Paynesville.  We design and manufacture boat covers and upholstery for private owners, commercial vessels and charter businesses.

Canvas Barn Marine Trimming can advise on the best products to complete your job. Some of the products we recommend are Sunbrella® acrylic canvas, Stamoid, PTFE thread, with a choice of Extruded Roll Glass, Pressed Polished Glass,  Polycarbonate or Bonded Acrylic for your enclosure. We use stainless fittings and specialty upholstery fabrics suited to marine conditions.

Your boat cover needs to be able to withstand the bad weather the marine environment throws at it. The fabric we use has to be strong and look good. It needs to be easy to clean, and resistant to mildew.  The fabric needs to do this for many years!  The team at Canvas Barn Marine Trimming only recommend and use materials of the highest quality. We will also advise on care for your boat covers and can advise on repairing  your existing covers. We can supply care products you will need to keep you cover in great condition.

Our Boat Covers page will outline more options for you.
