About Us

It all started because Tom Smith couldn’t find the right boat cover. In 1988, Tom Smith went looking for a new cover for the family boat. When he couldn’t find exactly what he wanted, Tom purchased a sewing machine for $600 and made one himself. It was money well spent. Not only did he get the boat cover he needed, that sewing machine allowed him to start his own canvas business.

Two years later, in 1990, that business evolved into Colorado Boat Center. Since then, owners Tom and Nancy Smith have dedicated themselves to providing our customers with outstanding service and exceptional value. By drawing on their combined experience working in other fields, and their own love of boating, Tom and Nancy have created a business that’s all about the fun and carefree boating lifestyle.

Still family-owned and operated, Colorado Boat Center has been certified by the National Marine Industry each year since 2005. We’re proud to maintain a customer satisfaction rating of more than 99%, as well as an A+ rating from the BBB, and to have been named as a Top 100 Dealer by the boating industry every year since 2006.
