Protect your investment from the top down

Boat Lift Canopy

Protect your investment from the top down

Constant exposure to sun, wind and driving rain can ruin your watercraft from the inside out. Cracking, fading and peeling not only takes away from the look, comfort and function of your boat, it reduces the value of your investment. Hewitt’s custom-designed aluminum framed canopies are the perfect way to “top-off” the safety provided by your Hewitt Lift. Available in a variety of great colors, our nylon reinforced vinyl canopies provide years of beautiful maintenance-free protection. They’re built in many sizes and can be designed for other applications as well, including carports, boat slip covers and rail system covers. If you have a special canopy need just contact us.


  • Tension Cords
    Tension cords keep canopy covering taut and simplify installation and removal.

    Canopy Bracing
    Recommended for canopies 29’ in length or longer.

    Canopy Support Strap
    The strap provides extra support along the top of the canopy. Hewitt is one of only a few manufacturers offering quick release center straps to keep the canopy cover from billowing in the wind.

    Reinforced Corners
    Hewitt takes extra steps to ensure your investment lasts longer – steps that others miss. Critical reinforcing is added at the corners where greater stress and wear occurs. All top and middle seams are heat welded to prevent thread rot and water infiltration.

  • Optional Under-Canopy Storage Net 

    Make the most of available space. This convenient storage net easily attaches to the canopy frame, providing quick access to supplies and recreational gear. Weight capacity approximately 75 lbs.

  • Free-standing Canopy
    Canopy frames are typically attached directly to a lift, but can stand independently for use with pontoon boats equipped with legs. Secure anchoring is achieved with the addition of 5’ posts and augers.

    Rail System & Narrow Pontoon Canopy
    This simplified canopy frame is designed specifically for attachment to Hewitt narrow pontoon lifts or Roll-A-Rail.
  • Standard Canopy
    Canopy frame with crossbows positioned every two feet. Canopy is solidly mounted on telescoping legs with 3” x 3” side support tubes.

    Tower Canopy
    The arched canopy provides greater vertical clearance, allowing boat towers to remain in the upright position for storage.

    Peak Roof Canopy
    The steep pitch of a Peak Roof Canopy rapidly sheds water. Its higher profile and clean lines accentuate the color of your canopy.
