About Us

National Marine Canvas is a full line boat canvas and upholstery shop located at 2275 S. Fed. Hwy. Delray Beach Florida 33483. Marty says that National Canvas has been in this same location serving the boating community of Boca Raton and Delray Beach for longer than twenty five years. Prior to that we had two other locations in Delray Beach for seven years giving us a total of thirty two years of service for the Boca Raton and Delray Beach area boaters. To steal a line from Arlo Guthrie’s song Alice’s Restaurant. You can get anything you want from Marty at National Marine Canvas as long as its canvas or upholstery related. Marty purchased this business from Julious Ullman who operated for many years before selling out to Marty. We still have a handful of clients who remember Julious well. Fortunately for me I was able to work with Julious for a period of time long enough to gain some valuable tricks of the trade from a man who really was good at what he did. Over the years by the grace of God I have been able to build on the foundation of what I learned from Julious.

Doing boat canvas for the people of Boca Raton has really been a great joy for me. Without a doubt I have met some wonderful people. I have many clients that have become close personal friends. It seems to me that nice people seem to gravitate to the Boca Raton and Delray Beach area. I have watched this entire area go through a huge change. There used to be average size house on all the canals with boats ranging in the eighteen to twenty six foot size. Now most of those houses have been torn down and replaced by two and three story mansions that cover every inch of available property. Now the boats are more in the twenty six to ninety foot range. The one thing that has remained the same is the joy of working for nice people.

Aside from working for nice people all the time I also really enjoy what I do. Working with my hands to replace or recreate canvas tops and boat covers has always been exciting for me. Replacing someones old and worn out boat seats and restoring them to like new again never ceases to bring me pleasure. Boat owners are always amazed at how good the old boat looks again with new seats and canvas.

So if your boats canvas or seats are in need of some attention why not call Marty and find out what it will cost to freshen up your whole boat. We have all the latest materials available for you to chose from and promise prompt courteous service with a smile.

Lastly I do not want to neglect to tell you that Jesus loves you and he proved it by suffering a great deal to the point of death on a cross to pay a debt that you or I could not possibly pay. This is the Creator of everything that exists and then keeps it in existing even while His own creation rejects Him. He lowered Himself to become one of us so that He could save us from ourselves. No greater love than this that a man would lay down his life for another.

God bless you
