Including the above, we stock many different types and sizes of tarps for sale! You can use our tarp finder to find the perfect tarp for your application or check out our extensive range of tarps and covers here.

Note – We recommend our stronger grade tarps with stronger eyelets where the tarp is to be used as a suspended roof shelter or where strong pressure will be applied to the corners and side eyelets. The tarpaulin should be roped over to avoid the “parachute effect”. The performance of each tarp varies in accordance with the use and type of install.

    Great customer service at purchase advising of delivery delay due to low stock then tarp arrived promptly. Tarp is well made with good and enough eyelets. Time will tell how it copes with the sun. We just had 140mm rain in 48hrs and boat was dry inside 👍

    Product seems great! Delivery time after reading online advertisement regarding how quickly items dispatched (same day or next) was disappointing unfortunately I had to contact Ark & ask where my order was? then I received the old ‘they’re being sent today’ hmmm that’s some 5 days after order? Otherwise I would’ve given 5 stars

    Tarp is great, way too big for what I need it for. Unfortunately, there was no stock of what I required at the time.

    I’m very happy with the tarp so far. A lot strong than the previous large hardware chair store one it replaced due to it tearing after 6 months of use.
    I’m hoping to get many years of use out of my ARK Tarp.

    Great tarp for my 9m yacht on yard trailer.

    I ordered the Ark Boat cover (8x5m) online for my 4.8m Qinney . Its a bit too long but I have folded the excess back under the motor so there is no water pooling.I went for that size due to the free postage over $100. A 6x5m would be better. Material is really tough and welded finish is great and white is very reflective to minimise heat. There are heaps of eyelets to tie down with. The tarp delivered quickly to the door, nicely packed in reusable sack and plastic wrap. Kept up to date on the order’s progress. I have only rated 4 as I want to see if the UV protection lasts 3 years in full qld sun. Time will tell. More instruction on how to use the tarpaulin to maximise its life would be great, what to avoid etc. I am using it to cover my $2000 boat cover so not sharp edges. Like others I had previously purchased heavy duty silver/green tarpaulin from the green shed with a 1 year warranty but had it turned to paper within 6 months.

    I’ve been using the heavy-duty tarps from the big green store to cover my boat. They don’t last long before the UV gets to them and they become very weak and rip easily in the wind. The Ark Tarps cover seems to be much better for this purpose. The white should also reduce heat under the tarp. I’m very happy with the switch.
