Frequently Asked Questions
Some covers are unique and require a bit more information or leg-work before they can be made. In order to ensure that every cover we send out is a perfect fit, we don't list some covers that could be confusing to order. If you don't see your cover, give us a call and we'll work with you and our suppliers to find something for you.
Both of these covers will be a good fit for your boat, but custom covers are made specifically for your make and model, whereas a semi custom cover will fit the general style of your boat. If you would like to learn more, visit our information page.
The covers sold by most retailers are called "ready-made" covers, and they are usually made with cheaper material and are meant to fit a wide variety of boats. This is because they only have so much shelf space, and it would be impractical to provide specific covers for dozens of types of boats. At Northstar, we don't have shelves, so this isn't an issue. We are able to provide specific covers for your boat that will fit much better. Unlike ready-made covers, our custom and semi-custom covers can be tailored and are built to last for years, rather than just for one or two seasons. The difference in cost will be made up after just two or three boating seasons when you are still using the same Northstar cover, rather than your third ready-made cover.
