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. Get in contact with us early to avoid disappointment.
