Eagle Pacific - Ripstop Boat Cover 17 ft to 19 ft - Gray

"I had the 1200 cover on my previous boat. I was a bit apprehensive about spending the extra money for the better cover. Best money I have spent yet. I've recommended it to many others. I'm going to contact you soon you about promoting Empire at Missouri BASS State Tournament"

Gerald in NY
Rinker Boat - QX MODEL SERIES 17QX 17 ft

"After having my boat covered with tarps, I felt that it was time to get a real cover. I kept coming back to your site, with the great price and with a warranty. It looks great and fits like a glove. I have had many people tell me how nice it looks. Again, great price and quality product."

KG in SC
Survived a hurricane!

"I bought this for my 2016 Yamaha FSH Sport. I was happy with the way it went over the t-top. Hurricane rolled through South Carolina yesterday. It survived the severe weather. Well worth the money."

Bill in FL
So far so good

"So far so good! It fits very nicely and was very easy to install. My boat is 23 feet, 9 inches and has a very large hardtop."

Justin in VA

"Elastic band around the entire cover works better than the button and snaps or some of my previous covers."

I know this cover is universal but it needs tie downs at the rear of the boat by the motor which could be used to hold the cover down/on. The port to starboard strap at the rear does a good job at holding the sides down but the very rear flips up in a wind. Overall great cover. Had my upholstery shop sew on clips same design as original

This is my first EmpireCovers boat cover. I've purchased BassPro bass boat covers for over 20 years. So far, I'm really impressed with the quality, craftsmanship and overall appearance of this boat cover.

Boat Covers Buying Guide

Why Cover Your Boat?

Buying a boat is a major investment. Many boat owners fail to realize the importance of properly protecting their boats when not in use. Exposure to rain, sun, wind, leaves, snow and dirt can seriously damage the exterior and interior of your boat, often resulting in mold growth and washed-out upholstery. A boat cover is an inexpensive necessity for all boat owners.

When looking for a boat cover, you should want a cover that is:

  • Waterproof to repel rain and moisture
  • Breathable to prevent rust, mold and mildew from growing on the interior of your boat
  • Stain-resistant to defend against bird droppings, tree sap, falling leaves and other dirt and grime
  • UV-resistant to deflect harmful UV rays from the sun
  • Tight-fitting to prevent animals and pest from infesting your boat
  • A winter boat cover able to withstand harsh winter weather

When it has these attributes boat covers are a long-standing investment for boat protection. Unlike tarps or shrink-wrap, boat covers can be used over and over again.

Types of Boat Covers

There are several types of boat covers, including:

Mooring covers: These are used to cover boats when they are docked or moored in water. They provide basic protection from sun, rain, and dust.

Travel  covers, also known as trailerable covers: These covers are used to protect boats during transport. They are typically made from heavy-duty materials and are designed to fit snugly over the boat.

Storage covers: These covers are used to protect boats when they are stored for long periods of time. They are typically made from breathable materials to prevent mold and mildew from growing.

Finding the Proper Sized Cover

An ill-fitting boat cover can cause more damage than not having one at all. Oversized covers can rub against the surface of your boat causing scratches and chips in your paint. A cover that is too small for your boat is mostly likely to tear or rip, making the covers protective properties ineffective.
