The Canvas Factory,has been in business since 1985, and we take great pride in our quality custom work!
We specialize in Full Boat Covers, T-tops, Biminis, Windshield-back Covers, Console/Instrument Covers, Sunshades, Enclosures, Carpet and Carpet Runners, BBQ Covers, and Upholstery.
Some of the other things we do are: washing, restitching, and waterproofing canvas as well as repair existing canvas. For your convenience we provide dockside service.
We do not use standard industry tubing to make our bimini tops. If we are making an aluminum bimini top we use O93 heavy wall tubing, and for a stainless steel bimini top we will use heavy wall O83-316 grade stainless steel. This will pull your canvas top tighter and requires less maintenance in polishing; subsequently, making a better looking cover.
Standard industry snaps are chrome platted brass; we use stainless steel, because they corrode less and last much longer.
We can make you a forty gauge enclosure using Strataglass that you can roll up. Or Jump on the band wagon and let us use an increasingly popular product called 80 gauge Acrylic that’ll make your enclosure picture perfect for years to come!
Let us help you redesign your boat’s canvas to add more shade, functionality, and a new look. Call us for a free phone quote or to talk about any of your canvas needs.

  1. I am very impressed with my boat cover. The ease of removing the cover and putting it back on is a pleasure. I have had other boat covers that were very difficult to put on and did not cover my boat as well as the cover from the Canvas Factory. They made the cover to my specifications with some great suggestions of their own.

  2. I called Brian to discuss installation on my 23ft Tidewater and he immediately suggested I check out his video on YouTube. After seeing how easy it was to take off the cover and put back on I requested an appointment to get a quote. Brian showed up exactly on time which is a rare thing in the contractor service world and had a smile on his face. He explained the process to me and committed to having him make the cover. Not only did he do it in quick manner, but the color matches my boat perfectly. I look forward to years of good coverage for my boat and protecting the interior. THANKS BRIAN!! Great job!!

  3. I contacted Brian to potentially build a very custom Bimini for my 25′ Catalina sailboat. When he came out to evaluate the project it became apparent that there were several factors complicating this situation. Brian made several suggestions and it rapidly became apparent that his years of experience was a valuable asset. I ended up taking the boat to his shop in Pompano where he made a few final recommendations before I left. A couple days later he sent me a picture of the completed Bimini and the next day I picked up the boat. I couldn’t have been more pleased and impressed with the design, craftsmanship and final result. You may or may not find someone cheaper, but you will be hard pressed to get anything better for your money. Thank you Brian and crew, outstanding job!

  4. Brian was great, a real people person, meticulous in detail and does exactly as he says. I came to The Canvas Factory by spotting the meticulously clean company truck, I thought perhaps that ethic would follow through to the job. I was correct. I brought my Monterrey to Brian with a lot of opinions and ideas. Brian spent the time to listen and learn all my concerns and flaws in the original factory cover. The end result was different than my original idea(s)… it was far better. Due to Brian’s 30 years of experience, and the time and interest he put forth, I was rewarded with an exceptional cover I can easily manage and keep out the elements. I was SOLD on all the above, price was in line but immaterial for the value I received.

  5. Getting better putting cover on and off. Learning curve going up!!!  Will never be as good as you!  Sun shade easy!!!  Thank you very much you were quick from phone call to finish product!!  And craft-master workmanship a cover that I am proud to have on my boat thank you and enjoyed working with you! I have work with two other canvas guys in the last 25 years. You have been the best and easiest to work with quickest and a fair price!
    Thanks Ken  

  6. Professional just doesn’t say enough about this company. If you appreciate outstanding workmanship and a quality product you would be hard pressed to find a better one. Brian and his crew are true artisans. His experience and advice were invaluable to me in choosing the right way to cover my 20′ bowrider. I took my boat to him on Sunday and he made a custom fit snap on cover and reupholstered two large cushions and it was ready for me to pick up Wednesday.. When I went to pick it up he even spent time readjusting and fitting my Bimini top. I didn’t realize what a difference a properly adjusted and fitted top made until he fixed mine. Oh and by the way he didn’t charge me for that he just couldn’t leave it the way it was. It bothered him. If you’re looking for top notch quality canvas work for your boat this is the guy for you. Thanks again Brian.
