FLOE canopies offer greater boat protection with their extra deep fabric and framework. Your canopy will not blow in or up and will keep your boat fully covered. The upscale style with tailor-fit fabric has a refined look and is held taut with the exclusive Quick-Clip™ fabric attachment system.

FLOE uses a premium-grade solution dyed fabric that is water resistant, has a more luxurious look and weighs 50% less than comparable vinyl fabrics for easy removal and installation. The SDP fabric is urethane coated, UV protected and has rip-resistant technology. In addition to the durable construction, the full-length seams are heat sealed to minimize leaks.

FLOE offers a variety of canopy lengths and widths to accommodate different watercraft sizes. The canopy frames adjust vertically and horizontally for perfect boat coverage.

Maxis™ Canopies – Easy access to your lift with the touch of a button!

The Maxis™ Canopy has 32″ of additional side coverage over standard canopy fabrics providing even more protection for your boat.  With the push of a button, your canopy frame tilts up allowing easy access for boats with towers and bimini tops. Mesh ends  allow air to flow through the canopy.

Quick Clip™ and Elastic Tension-Belt™ Systems

All of FLOE’s canopy systems incorporate the Quick-Clip™ System with ergonomic finger grips allowing you to install and remove your canopy fabric in half the time of other systems. The exclusive Elastic Tension-Belt™ design provides constant tension on the fabric for a taut look and stunning aesthetics.

Canopy Extensions make FLOE’s extra deep canopy even deeper

FLOE’s canopy extensions give you extra clearance so you can bring boats with  towers and pontoons with bimini covers into your boat lift without having to fold anything down.  Canopy extension kits add an additional 18″ of side coverage over standard canopies and are available in all of our popular SDP fabric colors.  Canopy extensions require that the lift be anchored.

Canopy extensions use sturdy fully adjustable aluminum frames that bolt to the bottom of the main canopy rails to support the extra fabric.


Keep pesky birds off your boat lift. The FLOE Bird Deterrent kit comes with four posts that install easily to your existing canopy. Once installed, fishing line (not included) is attached and joined to the tops of the posts, preventing birds from perching on your canopy.

Microbrewery By Boat

We’ve raced, run whitewater, rescued, and embarked on adventures to Communist countries. We’ve gone to rock concerts and pro sports games by boat, and we’ve rafted up in party coves. But this time, we’re here...
