Boat Enclosures

GDS Canvas and Upholstery uses the latest fabrication techniques to create top of the line boat enclosures. We manufacture and install full canvas, isinglass, makrolon, EZ2CY and strataglass, cockpit enclosures, companionways and hatch screen covers, or any other type of enclosure you might require.

A custom boat enclosure adds ultimate comfort to your boating experience. No matter if it’s cold, windy or rainy, GDS Canvas and Upholstery can enclose your boat or yacht using the latest design trends in “glass” and fabric panels to make it seaworthy in any kind of weather.

Our custom boat enclosures provide excellent protection against all kinds of unfavorable weather, as well as insects such as mosquitos and no-see-ums. Cockpit enclosures, screen and isinglass enclosures fabricated by GDS Canvas and Upholstery will give you protection you can count on.

At GDS we only use high-quality marine canvas such as Sunbrella, and manufacture our boat enclosures with sturdy frames and canvas reinforcements where needed. Snaps or turn fasteners are placed accurately to properly fasten the enclosure.

Our workshop is located in Fort Lauderdale, we often work with clients from all over the country as well as local ones.

Why A Custom Boat Enclosure?

A well designed custom boat enclosure can be fabricated exactly the right height and shape, taking in consideration limits such as booms or other overhead equipment. The boat’s cleats, winches, rod holders, bait-wells, and other gear also go into design considerations. It can even be fabricated to provide quick access to lines and sheets, and can include any removable zippered panels you would like.

Of course a custom boat enclosure will have a higher initial cost, however most boat owners tell us that the benefits and durability of a custom made enclosure are worth it in the long run.
