Center Console Boat Covers
Select Fit™ boat covers are designed specifically for center console boats of several styles, shapes, and sizes. Which is the best center console boat cover for the boat you own? If your model has been patterned by Westland™ and we have an Exact Fit® cover made specifically for it, this choice is easy. But there are countless different shapes, styles, and sizes of center console boats on the water. And if the model you own isn’t in our database (which probably means it isn’t in anyone else’s), the next best thing is a Select Fit™ boat cover.
Remember that our semi-custom Select Fit™ covers are constructed with the same high-quality Sunbrella®, Sharkskin Supreme™, or Sharkskin Plus™ materials as our Exact Fit® covers. They have two sewn in vents to help prevent mold and mildew and each cover also comes with a free vented support pole that keeps the water from pooling on your boat cover. What’s just as important, however, is that we take care to create center console boat covers that are designed specifically for your style of boat. Select Fit™ covers designed for all center consoles have darting around the console area and reinforcing for the windshield, for example. But beyond these details, we also break center consoles down into several individual styles that help us better fit your boat – and help you choose the best center console boat cover for your specific model.
Shop By Boat Style
Types of Center Consoles
Bay Fisherman Center Consoles
This style has a lower profile than many other types of center console boats. They also tend to have squared or flared V-shaped bows, so we design this cover to fit that wider radius and then reinforce it, both at the stern corners and at the bow. Since boats of this genre often also have low-profile bow rails, we’ve designed these covers to accommodate rails up to six-inches high, as well.
Center Consoles with Bow Rails
High bow rails obviously require a cover to be fitted a bit differently. In this case, we created a cover that can handle bow rails up to 15 inches high. As with most of our Center Console covers, they’re designed to accommodate a standard-sized console up to 30 inches off the deck.
Center Consoles Without Bow Rails
These are our covers designed to fit a standard-issue center console boat with, a standard-sized console up to 30 inches off the deck but also, has no bow rails mounted on the boat.
These are some of the trickier models to fit, and we’ve made several modifications to make sure our Flats Boats covers securely protect your fishing machine. First, we make accommodations for a bow-mounted trolling motor, which is common on this type of boat – and can ruin the fit of a cover that’s not semi-customized specifically to account for it. Second, these covers are designed to include a poling platform of up to 40 inches on the aft deck. Again, this is obviously an important item to plan for when fitting a cover. Also note that shorter platforms are okay (the cover will simply come down farther on the back of the boat) and 40 inches is just the maximum.
V-Shaped Jon Boats with Center Consoles
This is another style of boat that often has a bow-mounted electric trolling motor, so again, in this case our covers are fitted and reinforced to allow for them. They’re also designed to wrap snugly around the relatively sharp and often flared bow common to V-shaped boats.
Whaler Boat Covers
These are designed to fit the common Whaler-style center consoles from 10 to 19 feet, with their rounded bows and fairly tall rails (up to 18 inches high).
Center Console Boat Cover Options
Your boat was an investment, and now it is your guide to experience and adventure on the water. But how do you keep it protected when you are off the water? Whether you store your boat at a dock, under a cover, or inside a structure, it is constantly facing wear or potential damage from a variety of sources. Outside, it may face wear from the sun, including fabric discoloration or cracks in rubber and paint. Rain may introduce your boat to too much continued levels of moisture, which may lead to mold or mildew. Even inside, your boat could be at risk of airborne dust, dirt, and debris, which can settle in unwanted places. Smaller animals, such as rodents, may also be keen on turning your boat into a home.
To keep your boat safe from harm, you should have a high-quality boat cover. Boat covers are an excellent solution to protect your investment by shielding it from the elements when it is stored outside or keeping it safe from unwanted dust and visitors when stored inside. Here we will introduce a collection of center console boat covers with a quick overview of each to help you choose which one is right for you.
Mooring Covers for Center Console Boats
When trailering, storing your boat on water, or putting it away in off-season storage, you need a mooring cover. Mooring covers are specifically designed to stretch and cover your entire boat to keep water from getting in. At Westland, we have taken strides to ensure that our center console boat covers offer the best possible fit, with semi-custom Select Fit® covers or Exact Fit® covers. Our customizable options with high quality fabric selections have been designed to the needs and specifications of your specific boat, from center consoles with or without bow rails to jon boats, whaler boats, and more. Westland covers are even able to accommodate trickier models, such as flats boats, with reinforced materials that are capable of handling bow-mounted trolling motors.
Protect Your Center Console
While you will want to protect the entirety of your boat during long-term storage with a mooring cover, a center console cover may be more convenient for day-to-day use. The center console is the heart of your center console boat. This is where you will find most of your boat’s electronics, including essential controls, gauges, and equipment. Protecting these critical components of your boat from the sun, rain, and other environmental hazards will help keep it working and looking great while protecting those critical components from damage.
Accommodate Your T-Top
If you have a t-top on your boat, we also offer t-top console covers to protect your center console, with steering wheel and other critical electronics and equipment, safe from the elements. Like the center console cover, this may be a more efficient solution for day-to-day use versus a mooring cover. These covers have been designed to protect a wide variety of t-top and console sizes with adjustable straps for a tight, secure fit.
Shield Your Outboard Motor
Another crucial component of your boat is your motor. Although these are designed to be in the water while the boat is in use, you still want to protect it from the environment when it is not. Outboard motors should be covered with an outboard motor cover when not in use to keep them in excellent working condition. Like our mooring covers, our outboard motor covers have been designed to fit to the specifications of your motor and are available in a range of canvas fabric choices that can withstand the sun and rain.
Choosing a Center Console Boat Cover
When it comes to protecting your boat, you have options. For daily use, we recommend choosing a center console cover or t-top console cover (depending on your boat’s accessories) and an outboard motor cover. These are easy to put on or take off and can be folded up for storage, making them an efficient solution. For longer storage periods, whether on the water or in a covered area, we recommend a mooring cover. These covers have been designed to tightly fit your boat based on its shape and size and come in a range of premium fabrics that are durable and weather resistant. Our Boat Style Finder can help you quickly and easily decide which cover is right for you, or if you have questions, we are always happy to help!
As you look through our Style Selector to try to find the select the best center console boat cover for your specific boat, remember that once you narrow it down by style, you’ll need to further focus in by adjusting for length and beam. You can also try using our “Cover Finder” to select by the make, model, and year of your boat. This has the added advantage of alerting you to the availability of an Exact Fit® cover if we have that specific model in our database, and then thus, letting you choose between the Exact Fit® and Select Fit® options. If there are still any doubts in your mind, just call our customer service line at 1-800-835-7992 or send us an email at email@example.com.
Finally, remember that regardless of which of these covers you choose, all are constructed in one-foot increments (while many competitor’s covers are made in two- or even four-foot increments) to ensure the most exact fit possible. Because that’s what we’re all about here at Westland: providing you with the best center console boat cover available, period.
