A sample of our recent jobs. If you would like more examples or to see some of our work "in the flesh", please contact us


We have recently moved to a house on the river and very luckily inherited a Sealine 25 boat, albeit in very poor condition. We contacted Thames Covers who were fantastic in their response time to visit us and who recommended a refurbishment programme, including a new canopy, new seat covers, new soft furnishings and carpet. The job they have done has transformed the boat and the manner in which they carried out the work was very professional and excellent in all respects. Nothing was too much trouble and the courtesy and attitude of all the staff was great. The job was done at our house and it was done with a minimum of fuss and disruption.

We would absolutely recommend Thames Covers, Duncan, Will and all the team


I am so pleased with the cover your company have made - it has surpassed my expectations. The quality and finish is top class and I would recommend your work to anyone who asks. It has made such a difference to the useable space on my boat.


Thames covers were very understanding and could not do enough to accommodate our needs. We had three hatch covers, all of different shapes and sizes on our lovely wooden Dunkirk little ship.The service and quality of work was excellent and the attitude of the staff was great, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Duncan, Will and the team. We surely use Thames Covers in the future.

Sandy & Joe ( JOCKETTE II )

Thank you & Will for the excellent work carried out regarding the total fitting of new windscreen cover in canvas & the supply and fitting of new carpet with piping in saloon & forward cabin area of Cru. The detailed workmanship and craft used is a pleasure to see, and very heartening that quality of this magnitude is still available in this day and age.

Mr D. Izzard

thank you for such an excellent job done on my car softop I am sorry not to have been in touch sooner but I have to tell you that I have never had a roof on this car that has been so effective at keeping rain and draughts out. It has settled into shape and is as perfect a fit as I could have wished for. I really am very impressed and pleased with it. Thanks once again for a speedy service, I enjoyed the day with you guys watching it being made, it was interesting to see how it was done.

Dave Whitelock

The service from Thames Covers was outstanding along with the quality of work. I had a new back cover done on my Sunline 31 as well as the old one repair. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
