Semi-Custom: Next in price and complexity are semi-custom covers with tighter, better fitting, yet still liberal sizes designed for different makes and models of boats with a similar hull style. An example would be covers made for Whaler style inshore fishing boats. These covers fit smaller, center console boats with console heights up to 48”, bow rails 6”-18” and side rails up to 10”, plus bound-in outboard motor hoods are included.
Westland has over 100 years of combined experience in the marine fabric industry. We only give the Exact Fit® name after our custom boat covers are measured, tucked, darted and approved by our pattern craftsmen. Our experience tells us the tighter the fit, the more protected your investment will be from the elements and during transportation. Westland proudly awards our Exact Fit® name to all of our Sharkskin and Sunbrella fabrics, which are patterned for over 150 boat manufacturers from our sister company Great Lakes Boat Top.

First, you’ll need to know your hull style. If you’re unsure, look for a boat pictured on westmarine.com that matches yours as closely as possible. Next, use a tape measure and measure the beam width (the widest distance across the boat in a flat line). You’ll do the same thing to measure the centerline length (the overall length of the boat measured in a flat line between the farthest points forward and aft that you want to have covered). Finally, allow for options like bow pulpits and swim platforms; however, don’t measure over them. You should always measure in a flat, straight line. Covers are offered in one-foot length increments, so you’ll need to round off to the next foot if in between.
