Default Taylor Made Zip On Weather Enclosure for T-top boats - $299.95, plus shipping

I have ordered one for stock and I have 7 demo's lined up already down the Jersey Shore. If you would like a free demo of this cover on your boat, shoot me an email. Taking me out for a cruise on your boat might also get you a discount!

How does it fasten to the top?

cbraz82, zip ties. You attach the top strip with enclosed zip ties and it stays on the T-top. When you want to attach the enclosures, all you do is zip them in place. Takes about a minute to attach

Looks like a very cool idea. My only concern would be spray running down the inside of the front panel (from the gap in the t-top stringing) and over the clear section, thereby reducing visibility. Do the individual sections stay attached and rolled up until needed or is there a bead strip along the t-top? Some close-ups of the attachment points, etc. would be great.

I will take some pictures during the next demo I do. You attach the 3 - 5' x 3" sections to the t-top by zip ties and they stay there. When you want to add the front and sides they zipper right on, takes about 1 minute to do. You can also add 1/2" PVC tubing into the sleeves along the bottom of the covers to keep them taunt. It's a pretty cool enclosure, very simple and made well. It is for canvas T-tops.

Do the front & side panels have to be made to order to get a good fit? Should they be removed when trailering? And finally, how do they behave while running at moderate speeds? Sorry for all the questions but this is something I'm very interested in and I'm sure others will be as well.

Cobia217, this is a basic, non-custom enclosure made to fit the width of any combination of center consoles and T top supports. They are selling as one size fits all. It takes about 1 minute to put the covers on and 1 minute to take them off and store them, so I would remove them before trailering. However, the kit comes with eye loops, screws and 20ft shock cord so you can secure the enclosure for running.
For the price $299.95, this is a pretty good cover. I have seen custom enclosures go in the $600-800 range.

Agreed. This is the first I've heard of this item and seems certainly worth the price, especially for those who only have an occasional need an enclosure.

Hey guys, I have been doing demos with the enclosure and I got to tell ya, it's pretty cool. Visiability is good thru the clear plastic and it does a nice job of covering the console area from rain. However, this is a universal enclosure, meaning it is made to fit just about any T-top center console. It fits some better than others. Included in the kit are eyeloops and screws and line. In order to secure the cover so it is tight on the boat, you might need to utilize the eyeloops and screws and line. There is a 5 page owners manual with the kit and everything is explained in it.
This is not the $1600 custom-made to your boat enclosure. But this enclosure is definitely worth the $300 price tag.

Word from Taylormade is that they have discontinued this Zip on Weather Enclosure. They do have some left in stock, in Black and Dark Green. I have been selling them for $299.95, plus shipping.

How about $259.95, plus shipping. Black and Dark Green are the only colors left.

Call or email me if interested.

9/15 UPDATE: We have 4 - Black enclosures left. Then that is it, no longer listed on Taylormade webite. Discontinued. Warranty still good though.

I wanted to buy this enclosure but I want white. I can only find gray and blue. Is there a white model?

You can Google the enclosure, then see if anyone has one in their stock. Taylormade only has a couple left and none of them are white.
