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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
