Where can you buy cockpit and bow covers?

7 posts in this topic

I have a 2004 Chaparral Sunesta 254 and need cockpit and bow cover canvas. My local dealer says Chaparral does not offer the canvas anymore for the 2004 models. Does anyone know where I can purchase new canvas? I am located in Atlanta.

Go to your local upholstery shop, they should be able to hook you up w/ what you want....custom fit w/ snaps and all. A good canvas shop will use sunbrella material. You don't want to use anything else, it cost more but it will last so much longer. Some shops try to make them on the cheap, you get what you pay for. Big city like Atlanta you should be able to find a good shop. Good luck.........

Your dealer should know a good quality canvas shop in your area. Or ask around one of the marinas in the area to see who is recommended.

Welcome to the forum cavail . We are glad you are here and believe that you will find answers to a lot of your questions. We also provide some humor, of course at no charge to you other than the initiation fee you paid to join this forum ;)

A few pointers for you to do (if you have not already done so) to help us help you:

1. By clicking on your name in the upper right corner to bring up your options select my profile to add into your signature your location (geographic area).

2. Also under your signature add the type of boat you have and its mechanical systems, such as boat type, engine, drives, etc. This way you don't have to type it into to every post you put up. This will help us help you a lot! Without it, you may not get any answers.

3. Use the Search feature in the top right corner of the forum. There is a lot of good information on this forum that will answer many of your questions. We have a lot of experts here with a large amount of life experience.

4. Take a minute to review our Terms of Service, again right corner. There is good information in there that you will want to know including that we cannot discuss pricing. But read some of our other posts on here to learn the work around for that. ;)

5. We like pictures a lot! So when you get a chance, post some pics of your ride. Read through this thread to learn more about how to do so.

6. Take some time to look through the Help (upper right corner) and > Info Center) located under Chaparral Boats Forum on the main page. From there you will find parts guides, brochures, manuals, specifications, canvas installation manuals, vinyl care information, square gauge setup, weather links, computer desktop backgrounds, etc. Lots of good stuff there for you and your Chaparral!

7. Come back early and often to post. We are a community of friendly and some of us are border-line psychotic. But we admit to it and that's the first step to recovery ;)

Again, welcome to the asylum/forum and we look forward to more from you. Don't be a stranger.

Thanks for the help, I will look for a local vendor. I wonder why the dealer did not recommend an upholstery shop?

But be prepared to have about 50 holes drilled in your boat for the snap sets. :o

Depending on your storage needs, consider a mooring or trailering cover that ties around the boat.

Universal sizing and cheaper with no alterations to the boat. ;)

Make sure to treat with 3M water repellent once you have them. I don't think the raw fabric comes treated. Make sure they use Sunbrella too.
