Question Custom cover for Prostar 209?

Hey all! This is my first post to the forums so bare with me. If I am posting to the wrong category just let me know (but be kind about it). I just bought a 2004 Prostar 209 (see pic ). The boat is staying parked on a slip all season long so a water-proof cover is a necessity. I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for a GREAT custom cover for my boat. I've thought about hiring someone to make one, but I would rather order one from someone that has the exact pattern, etc. The bimini will be removed when I put the cover on so no need to work around that. Thanks!

Do you have a lift or is the boat sitting in the water? I would recommend www.skiboatcovers.com. I went with the sunbrella waterline cover for my prostar two years ago and it is by far the best money I have spent. I haven't had any oxidation since I started using the cover - it's great for keeping the boat out of the sun.

I have also heard good things about www.evolutioncovers.com. I believe that these covers are trailerable as well, if that is important to you.

Unfortunately the owner of the marina won't allow lifts, so it has to sit on the water for the season. You can bet I'll be pulling that beautiful thing out of the water a few times a year to clean away the algae build-up. I've thought about trailering the boat, but the convenience of jumping in the boat and heading out for a ski is great. Thank you for the recommendation. I will check out those covers from the vendors mentioned.

MC209: Got the boat in Indianapolis. Someone took really good care of it.

Great looking boat! You will be surprised how much stuff you can fit in it
I love mine.

What options does it have?

Has the smaller engine (Indmar Predator 5.7 310HP). 4 component speakers (w/ tweeters) powered by 4 channel Sony amp. Kenwood MP3 player w/ driver controls. Perfect Pass (wish I knew what version so I could find the owners manual). Has an aftermarket bimini (obviously). Teak platform.

Fairly basic, but I absolutely love it. Sold a 2005 Sea Ray 200 Sport and upgraded since we do a lot of water sports (primarily slalom). I have tremendous respect for SeaRay, but it just isn't a MasterCraft.

Thank you very much for the recommendation. I went ahead and got the Sunbrella (less the waterline). Package came over the weekend and the cover looks sharp! Going to put in on the boat later this evening.

Bought a Jet black with yellow stripe down the middle. Very impressed with the quality of work.
