Lots of different boat lifts made here in Minnesota so we have many, many different brands sold around here. The most disappointing ones on our lake have been Hewitt and Shoremaster. Best ones have been Pier Pleasure, Shore Station, and Floe. I've never cared for Shore Station because of the shallow canopy and the ring-guide concept (tend to bind).

For a boat with a tower, I would consider canopy skirt. They're probably about $2000, very well made, and work great. They can be put on any lift.

This is my buddy's X-10 on his Pier Pleasure lift before and after (don't ask me why he chose yellow). He's had it several years now and it has been durable and still looks great:
