Boat Cover for 1985 Super Sport 15

Postby 1985supersport15 » Tue Oct 03, 2017 2:06 am

Hi there. I am in the market for a boat cover for my 1985 Super Sport 15. I was hoping someone might have a recommendation for a brand they had a good fit with for their Super Sport 15 of similar age with bow rails approximately 12-inches tall. Also, I have a custom backrest to original driver's seat that increases backrest height by approximately 16-inches.

I looked at West Marine; they did have one that was Taylor-Made brand for 16 to 17-feet "Whaler Style" hulls for about $300. I am looking for something a bit more economic than that--if possible.

Many manufacturers seem to make covers only for boats with a triangular bow. Since there are not a whole lot of marine outfitters near me that carry covers I was hoping for a recommendation before ordering any on-line to avoid having to return covers for bad fitment.

Any recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thanks--Andy

Carver makes fitted covers for many Boston Whaler models. Your custom seat may interfere but you can consult with them. It will be difficult to find a fitted cover of decent quality and durability for $300. Here is a link to Carver.

Hello. There are many options to choose from for your boat. I found a Carver-brand cover made of Sunbrella that fits my 160 Dauntless very well on this site:

You simply specify your brand, model, and year, and [the website] gives you three to four options with various color choices. I didn't need to spend the $1,100 for a Mills cover. My boat is a 2003. I wanted a medium duty cover that would be suitable for towing and long-term storage which was about [$550].

Here is another link you might try for <$300 although I recommend going with a slightly better cover as is also offered.

I used the Sunbrella type and I'm very satisfied with fit and quality 4 years later.
