Cuddy Boat Covers
If you have a cuddy style boat, we have the ideal cover to protect it. Finding the best cover for a cuddy boat is no small task. You need to consider construction quality, ventilation, cost, and of course fit. We suggest you read “Which is the Best Boat Cover?”, to find out the ins and outs of all sorts of boat covers, but when it comes to fit, the details aren’t always so cut and dry. A custom cover from our Exact Fit® line can’t be beat, but questions start to arise when the particular model you own hasn’t been patterned. There are countless make and model cuddy boats out there, so no one database has the exact specs for them all – and if we haven’t patterned your boat, the chances are no one else has. So, how will you get a cover that fits?

CUDDY BOAT COVER BUYING GUIDE
While a boat cover may not be the first thing on your mind when you think about your cuddy boat, it is an extremely important factor in keeping your boat in good condition. Ensuring that your boat cover fits properly will help increase the life of your boat.
WHY YOU NEED A CUDDY BOAT COVER
No matter how big or small your boat is, it needs a cover! A boat cover kind of acts like a roof to a house - it protects the interior of the boat and keeps it in prime condition. Without a boat cover, debris, small animals, and insects can find their way into your boat. Leaving a boat uncovered can lead to corrosion and damage to the upholstery from UV rays. Not only does a boat cover help keep your boat looking new, but it also protects the critical electrical components. Finding a high-quality, proper-fitting boat cover will help protect your investment.
THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE BUYING A CUDDY BOAT COVER
There are two types of cuddies: Conventional V-hulls, and Euro Cuddies. It’s important to differentiate between the two, in order to find the boat cover with the best fit. Conventional V-hull cuddy boats have a medium profile, bow rails, and squared-off windshields. Euro Cuddies, on the other hand, typically have curved windshields and euro-style integrated swim platforms. In the world of boat covers, these are major-league differences. That’s why we digitized the patterns for countless cuddy boats to come up with these two types, which our covers fit to a tee.
Not only does the shape of the cover need to be different in order to provide the best fit, but appropriate areas of reinforcement also have to be taken into account. At least, they do to us here at Westland. While some competitors won’t bother worrying about reinforcing stress points, our Select Fit® covers are reinforced in important areas like the bow, transom corners, and at the windshield. Naturally, the exact placement of these reinforcements changes a bit with each different boat model, which is why we take the time and effort to not only differentiate between other boat styles and cuddy style boats, but also between a Conventional V-Hull model and a Euro Cuddy.
Another thing to take into consideration when choosing a boat cover is the fabric that is used. You should look for a material that protects your boat from natural elements and keeps moisture out while still allowing it to breathe. Two durable, high-quality fabrics that are recommended are Sharkskin® and Sunbrella®.
