The Canoe Coat is the best outdoor storage protection you can get for your canoe.
Made from durable, UV- and water-resistant Sunbrella fabric, the best marine-grade fabric available, the Canoe Coat is custom sewn to cover your canoe’s hull and secures with quick-release hooks and bungies. Installation and removal are quick and easy, taking about 60 seconds for one person.
Sunbrella fabric carries a 10-year warranty against fading and UV damage and is the leading fabric in the marine industry. It blocks 100% of UV light, is very water resistant, and is breathable to allow moisture and heat to escape.
It’s the best protection you can get for your canoe and is the same fabric we use for our Ultimate Covers for kayaks, surf skis, and outrigger canoes. If you store your boat outdoors, especially if it has wood gunwales or is a beloved wood and canvas boat, or you want the best protection and long-term value in a canoe cover, the Canoe Coat is what we recommend.
Canoes that are stored outdoors get most of their UV exposure and damage when in storage. These covers are definitely the most effective and long-lasting way to protect them.
Note that the Canoe Coat is NOT a travel cover. If you would like a canoe cover that’s safe for transport up to highway speeds, please see our Original Bag Lady Canoe Covers.
Should I get the optional padding?
A padded Canoe Coat offers an extra level of protection against bumps and scrapes when your canoe is on the storage rack, especially if your canoe is stored in a club or other public location with other boats. Note that the padding can collect dirt, grit, and moisture, so it does require some extra care.
We don’t recommend the padding if your boat is stored outdoors for the winter in a place with prolonged temperatures below freezing and you use your boat during the colder seasons - the padding can freeze to the boat hull and tear if you try to remove it when it's still frozen.
My canoe isn't listed in the Manufacturer or Model drop down. What do I do?
Don't worry! We make all of our patterns from measurements and don't need your boat in the shop to make a perfect cover.
Just contact us by email at email@example.com or by phone at +1 (906) 451-4539 and we can send you a measurement packet that walks you through the measurements we need, step-by-step.
Can I get a Canoe Coat for my kayak, surf ski, or outrigger canoe?
We don’t offer Canoe Coats for kayaks, surf skis, or outrigger canoes, but do make the Ultimate Cover for those boats. The Ultimate Cover is a durable long-term outdoor storage and transportation cover made from the same custom-fit, marine-grade Sunbrella fabric and featuring full coverage and a full-length marine #10 zipper.
The Ultimate Cover is the highest level of storage and transport protection you can get for your kayak, surf ski, or outrigger canoe.
