Basta Boatlifts Debuts the Basta One-Touch Convertible Boat Cover at the Seattle Boat Show

Innovative Patent-Pending Design Is Fully Retractable in Less Than 60 Seconds

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2016) - At the Seattle Boat Show opening Jan. 29, Basta Boatlifts (Booth East 1115) will demonstrate for the first time its new Basta One-Touch Convertible Boat Cover that revolutionizes the way boat owners protect and extend the life of their watercraft.

The Basta One-Touch Convertible Boat Cover is a unique patent-pending design utilizing a tension-arch system that creates a soft-shell top that protects the boat from the elements while still allowing airflow. The remote-controlled cover retracts like a convertible car top allowing for quick launching and storing. The outer shell can be ordered in a variety of colors made with water resistant Sunbrella™, vinyl or fabric mesh.

"Boat owners love being on the water and having fun, but most of us don't enjoy the necessary task of caring for our boats to protect our investment," said Sam Basta, founder and CEO of Basta Boatlifts. "The elegant design of the Basta One-Touch Convertible Boat Cover makes covering and uncovering your boat as simple as the push of a button, so you can spend more time enjoying your investment and less time crawling around with bulky, heavy covers." 

The first of three models of the Basta One-Touch Convertible Boat Cover are in pre-production and will be available this summer. 


  • One-touch remote control
  • Fully retractable in less than 60 seconds
  • Protects gel coat from abrasion and UV light
  • Unique tension-arch
