Winter is Coming! Prepare With BlackTip Jetsports Storage Covers


There’s no shortage of aftermarket personal watercraft storage covers out there. Some are even made directly from the factory patterns, while others are stitched together from backpack material and duffle bag canvas (not recommended!).

Thankfully, when it came time for Blacktip Jetsports to develop its own line of high quality–yet–budget–friendly storage covers, they opted for one of the leaders in outdoor UV-protecting material: Sunbrella.

That’s right, the world leader in outdoor pavilions, sunshades, covers, protectors and umbrellas is the very same performance fabric that Blacktip Jetsports uses for it sprecision-cut PWC covers.

According to BlackTip Jetsports’ own website: “We made many prototype covers and tested them in a laboratory environment as well as outside in the harsh Florida sun. What we found was Sunbrella, a fabric known around the globe for being the best outdoor fabric money can buy, held up better than any other product.

“Sunbrella has been used for high end boat covers, patio furniture and awnings for years. Until now the only way to get a Sunbrella cover for you PWC was to go to a local upholstery shop, bring them your watercraft and wait for them to custom sew one. This was a very expensive and time consuming process.”
