Canvas Barn Marine Trimming is a business owned and run by a long time local family. Our specialty is high quality bespoke marine trimming and upholstery for on water boats, game boats, timber boats and yachts.

Smaller trailer boat work including upholstery only undertaken by consultation.

 We are FULLY COMMITTED to our current customers until MAY 2023. (as of 1 Sep 22)

We cater to boating enthusiasts right around Australia as well as local customers in and around the Gippsland Lakes.

From super yachts to timber boats, we design and manufacture the highest 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 bespoke boat covers and upholstery for private owners, commercial vessels, and charter businesses. We specialise in on-water boats, timber boats , and classic boats, as well as game fishing boats, for those chasing bill fish around south east Australia. We frequently travel interstate for our clients. (Due to Covid restrictions travel may not be possible.)

Canvas Barn Marine Trimming can advise on the best products to complete your job. We only use selected high-end fabrics, including  Sunbrella® acrylic canvas by Glen Raven, Stamoid marine PVC by Serge Ferrari, PTFE thread by Tenara, with a choice of Bonded Acrylic,  Polycarbonate or Strataglass Pressed Polished Glass  for your enclosure. (We do not use roll glass). We use stainless fittings and specialty upholstery fabrics suited to marine conditions. We recommend Infinity Luxury Woven Vinyl flooring as a wonderful, easy clean alternative to regular marine carpets. We also use U-Dek for some vessels, ski boats and fishing boats in particular.

Your boat cover needs to be able to withstand all 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 your cover in great condition.

Many boat owners are thinking ahead of the game, and looking at work that needs doing in the future, and planning for such work with us. This ensures that when you need your boat to look amazing, the work is already completed. Thank you to those boat owners for their support! And on that note,

Check your boat covers soon for signs of wear and failure. It’s better to stay ahead of the game, and not get caught out by cover failure. 

Please note, We are FULLY COMMITTED to our current customers until MAY 2023.
